Oh Candy. Your next stop you will be home!! Candy was brought to the shelter by a homeless woman. We do not know what she had been through, only what needs to happen moving forward. When Candy first came in to our care, she was timid, unsure, tired and depressed. She was not doing well in the shelter, unable to settle and constantly looking over her shoulder. We do not usually pull from the county shelter but a volunteer could not stop thinking about Candy. Her time was running out and Candy was breaking down. Today Candy is thriving. She is in a foster home that is very consistent in routine with a quiet, stable environment. We want to make sure that Candy continues on a path that allows her to feel comfortable and secure as she can continue to live her best life. What we have learned over these many weeks is that Candy loves all humans, she is playful and puppy-like. Her playfulness is very mouthy so her new owners will need to continue to work with her. She means no harm. Candy is potty and crate trained and LOVES car rides. Candy does have a bit of hip dysplasia and is responding well to an over the counter joint supplement. Candy has mastered the transitional leash and loves her daily walk. We are adopting her out as an only animal as her excitement, prey drive would not do well in a multi animal home. Candy will thrive as an only animal with a tight routine and a family that understands her past. She has done soooooo well since exiting the shelter and being in a foster home. There is no doubt this beautiful girl will make such a wonderful companion. Candy is about 1.5 years old and is 45lbs. She is as sweet as her name.
