okay so i have to wait until tuesday to go see her. Unfortunately we didnt get to the shelter in time before it closed because of a nail in one of our tires. For now, Candy SHOULD be safe since they euth on fridays and incoming dogs are supposed to be kept for 2 weeks if adoptable. Will hopefully be able to go see her tuesday. Was very heartbroken we didnt make it this afternoon.

That's good news.

hubby is going to try to get the afternoon off from work to go with me to see her on tuesday. Otherwise i have to wait or try to get a babysitter because they wont allow me to visit with her and maintain two kids as well. which i totally understand. so keep fingers and paws crossed he gets off work early!

I met this girl today. Much prettier than her shelter pic!! Oh my goodness, what a sweet, sweet personality. Candy is her name, and it is fitting for her temperment. She approached me with a wag and a smile, and was very eager for some attention. I'm guessing she is about 4-5 yrs old...she has some grey on muzzle, but her teeth look very nice, (not much tartar on upper molars). We sat in the outdoor pen, and she took treats very gently. She let me touch her all over with no objections: paws, belly, ears, tail, teeth etc. She enjoys being petted, and was eager to give gentle kisses. Candy was busily watching everything going on around her, and would wag her tail every time she saw a new person. She came over when I called her, and happily took some ear scratches. She seems like she bonds with people very quickly...she got very excited and animated when the volunteer who has been feeding her came out.

Candy has obviously not been very well cared for. She has had several litters, and her posture reflects this. Her coat is thin and brittle, and she is in desperate need of a bath. Her nails are very long. HW status unknown. However, with a bit of love and attention, all would be well, and she would be a stunning girl. Candy is not a very big shepherd, maybe 60 pounds or so. Underneath the dirt and grime she is a classic black and tan, with hints of red. Candy seems to be pretty nimble, and was happily trotting around wagging her tail.

Candy does fine with other dogs. She lived with several other dogs, and the owner dumped her because he has "too many". The volunteer mentioned that Candy has been out in play area with other dogs, and has no problems with anyone. (Per the volunteer, she even ignored a small dog that was barking and harrassing her).

Candy is a very sweet girl that will probably be a devoted companion if she gets another opportunity. Hoping that someone has a place for this special dog. She deserves to know what it feels like to be loved and cared for. Candy has a radient and happy personality, and seems very eager to love and be loved.

Thank God someone got to meet this girl! still gonna try and see her on tuesday. If we can find a way to cat test her somehow, hubby says we may pull and foster until we find a more suitable home for her. But no promises.

I must say that the blurry petfinder pic does not do her justice. She is beautiful. She seems to be a true sweetheart. She just needs some TLC.
