HONEY the Japanese Akita faced the prospect of being put down after being found abandoned.
She was given a lifeline by a member of the Japanese Akita Welfare Trust (JAWT) in St Albans who agreed to foster her for a short while but Honey is now in desperate need of a permanent home.
Liz Needham, the south-eastern co-ordinator for JAWT, became involved with the charity when she adopted another Akita called Sadie and fell in love with the breed which she describes as "loyal and intelligent."
Honey had been found in a bad way roaming the streets of Reading by the dog warden and they kept her as long as possible but turned to the charity for help because there was no space in any rescue centres for her.
Liz agreed to temporarily take in Honey, who is aged between 18 months and two-years-old, and is trying urgently to find her a loving home.
Honey needs a family with older children used to handling large breeds because it is not known if she has been socialised with young children previously.

She gets on well with other dogs, is used to being left on her own and is very well behaved inside the home and on walks.
A vet has also confirmed Honey is now in very good health despite her trauma.
