Candy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Candy's Story...
560 days at our shelter. We fear this dog is getting depressed as she watches the other dogs get adopted.

How is it possible that our sweet Candy has been waiting for her forever family for more than a year and a half? We pulled Candy from death row in August 2015, had her vetted and spayed, and put her up for adoption and she is still waiting.

Candy is a sweet, friendly soul. She's about 3.5 years old and ready to go. She's fun, energetic and playful. She's housetrained. She's good in a crate. A volunteer has run races with Candy on a leash and Candy has been fantastic.

Candy tested positive for heartworms when we pulled her and she's been undergoing a slow-kill treatment since she was rescued. She has had no ill side effects and shows absolutely no symptoms. Candy would probably do best as an only furchild as she is picky about the other dogs she wants to hang out with. She has a fear of thunderstorms and she will need to be an indoor dog and with a person or in a crate when a storm comes up.

Please share far and wide! Let's find this sweet and loving dog the home she has been waiting for!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Candy, a Eden Pointer/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pointer/Labrador Retriever for sale in Eden, or seeking a Pointer/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Eden.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Eden already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Eden breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pointer/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Pointer/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Eden paves the way for another one to be saved.
