My story

Candy is a beautiful, 6 yr old female German Shepherd who was surrendered due to a move. She and another German Shepherd, Tiffany (also adoptable), came from the same home where they were keep outside in a kennel. We suspect they were used for breeding purposes only. They came in needing years worth of brushing and a good bath. They were petrified. Neither seemed to have ever been on a leash. It took weeks for them to acclimate to the shelter enough to trust staff to move them from their kennels to the play yard and another couple of weeks to get them to be less of a flight risk to walk on a leash. Candy also arrived with half of her right ear missing. Since the son of the previous owner surrendered them, we are unsure how this happened to her. We assume it may have been a scuffle with one of the two dogs that the son kept, but not sure.

Since they arrived in early July, they have made wonderful strides and are amazed how much bigger the world is! So many new & interesting smells and things to see, not to mention how good they feel after being cleaned up! They are finally relaxed enough to know what it means to be loved by people and soak up the attention like a sponge!

Candy will need an experienced & patient family. While she does not have a mean bone in her body, a home without small children may be best as she is not used to home life and children may not understand her need for space. Candy & her former kennel mate, Tiffany, get along well with each other. It will take time and proper introductions to see if Candy can be placed in a home with other dogs. Candy will be is spayed, vaccinated, & chipped mid August. If interested in Candy or both, contact Vicki@nokillarc.org or 570-784-3669 ext 1.
