Little Senior Terrier Candy A1259183 is YOUNG at heart!
Why isn't this girl being scooped up? How sad that this lovely lady can't find someplace to rest her weary head. Don't you need a sweet senior to warm up your chilly winter nights??
SWEET AS "CANDY"
My name is Candy and I am a spayed mixed terrier and about as cute as can be, if I do say so myself. A lady never likes to divulge her age but I will tell you one thing, I am probably not 13 yrs. old like they say I am. I have the spirit and energy of a pup!
The sad part of my story is that I was picked up as evidence in a humane investigation. My life has not been very happy but I still have a great attitude. I would love any family that decided to give an "old girl" like me a chance for a happy life.
When I was brought to the shelter on Oct. 22, 2011 I only weighed 13 lbs. and was very emaciated. The shelter fed me good food and now I weigh 20 lbs. I'm actually getting a little chunky which no girl likes to admit but I haven't had much exercise here at the shelter.
A couple of the volunteers recently gave me a bath and boy, did I ever love that. I kept kissing the person who was holding me because I was so happy.
I am also a happy girl when I get to go into the play yard to run and sniff around. I am housebroken so the yard is nice for that too.
Hey, I also know how to sit on command, plus I have a very soft mouth when I take treats.
It's true that older dogs like me have a hard time finding a home, but I hope people can see what a cool dog I am. I promise that I would be very loving and sweet. I would even sit in your lap and watch T.V. with you if that would make you happy. PLEASE ADOPT ME, you won't be sorry!
