Candy is a super-sweet 2 year-old Chihuahua/Doxie mix female who came into a rural county dog shelter very underweight at less than 8 pounds. Every bone in her little body was visible. She came to Canine Lifeline to get lots of TLC and to be able to relax and gain weight in a foster home before finding herself a great new home. Candy has now gained a couple of pounds and looks so much better. She’s really a delightful little dog who gets along well with all the other dogs that she’s met. She might enjoy sharing her home with another small dog but also enjoys human companionship so might be fine as the only dog in her new home provided her family is able to spend lots of time with her. Candy has excellent crate manners and enjoys burrowing into her cozy bed for a nap after playtime is over. She should be able to pick up the housetraining rules quickly in her new home. Candy can’t wait to experience the life of a pampered pup in her new home! Candy now weighs about 9-10 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Candy. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
