CANDY is a 7 year old Sable & White female. She came to us through an animal shelter on the west side of the state, where she was picked up as a stray. She came in with her 7 year old Golden Retriever housemate/sister. The two of them were picked up and tagged the year before and returned to their owners. When they were found this time, the shelter knew who the owners were and tried to contact them but got no response. Of course the owners didn’t want them back, they were both heartworm positive! Candy has completed her heartworm treatment and has tested negative. Her Golden housemate was adopted, the family whom we met by accident on our first vet visit. Candy is a push-button dog who absolutely adores attention. If you start petting her, she will nudge your hand if you stop! She is completely housetrained and has the run of the place if we are away. We have three other collies in the house, Candy gets along fine with them. It took her awhile, but she has finally learned to play with the youngest one. Candy would do best in a home with children. When our grandkids come for a visit she wants to be wherever they are. She gives up her place on the floor on my side of the bed at night to be by their side. When she sees (or hears) the leash, she wants to go with me, beats me to the door. Walks or rides in the car, doesn’t matter as long as she can go!
