Meet a sweet dog named Candy, our Pet of the Week!

Mass Appeal

Meet Candy!  She’s a Dixie Dog who came up to the northeast from Texas.  This sweet girl has a lovely personality and will smile when she’s happy.  Candy takes other dogs on a case-by-case basis, and we don’t know her history with cats, but we can look into that if you have a feline at your house.  Candy is a great first dog for someone without dog experience, but she will need some help with her house training…she’s not quite there yet.  Candy loves a good walk as much as a good snuggle and she’s waiting to meet her new person or family at our Springfield Adoption Center.
