I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
My name is Candy and I am a year old as of February 14th, still considered a puppy. I am categorically a ‘mutt’, though my purebred lineage mix would consist of a Whippet, Chihuahua and Jack Russell Terrier. I was born in a shelter, my mother was a throw-away stray and I have spent my entire short life there, surrounded by cats and dogs all looking for loving homes. I have been with my Foster Mom for about 2 months and have grown leaps and bounds with regard to my socialization skills, both with humans and other animals. I am great with other dogs and quick to adapt, trust and play. With humans, I need more understanding and a day or 2 to bond and gain trust. I am loving, playful and want nothing more than to sit on a lap and be held or snuggled. I am house trained, recognize commands like ‘Sit’ (I have mastered that) and am working on others such as ‘Down’ and ‘Stay’. I am not aggressive or a ‘barker’ but can be protective of my domain if needed. I am a fast learner and very smart. I walk well on a leash and travel easily in the car. My Foster mom travels a lot and though emotionally bonded, I realize that I cannot stay with her. I am such a good and loving companion that I seek only serious inquiries, as I do not want to get my hopes up for a forever home, only to go back to the shelter. Please consider adopting me…. I will not let you down.
Thanks to her Foster Mom, Candy is a better trained puppy. Candy has been spayed and has had all of her shots, including heartworm preventive, deworming and flea control. She is a very loving dog, Her Foster Mom would keep her if she could but she cannot. Adopt this baby and you will not be disappointed!
