Living up to her namesake, Candy is just the sweetest. This kind pup is a dream dog and will win you over in seconds. Candy is extremely gentle and calm with every 2-legged person she meets - young or old, big or small, male or female - she likes everybody! She is equally accepting of all dogs - loving all sizes, ages, and breeds equally. She will fit in easily to any home.

Candy is a superstar in many other ways besides her easy-going demeanor. She is extremely polite and respectful of humans and their home. She doesn't try to go on furniture and refrains from begging in the dining room. She is happy to just rest on her dog bed or on another comfortable part of the floor. She loves some attention and will come ask for some but then go quietly relax when she's had her fill. Candy also is a great, calm walker and doesn't pull on the leash or cut you off. She just wants to leisurely stroll or go on short hikes with her human.

Sweet Candy has a spinal injury and is currently experiencing bouts of partial incontinence. She knows she needs to go outside but has occasional accidents as she heals and relearns this habit. She does great in doggy diapers which can help while she is learning. She would do best with an understanding and patient family who will support and love her despite accidents.

Candy is truly a one-of-a-kind dog. She is so special and deserves the most special family in return. Is that you? Come meet Candy today!
