Candy is a 6 year old Yorkshire Terrier described by her foster mum as a very people focused little lady. In the home she craves attention and will push her head under your hand to make sure you keep stroking her. She loves nothing more than to cuddle up to her human and have a nice long belly rub. Despite being very confident she does have her own little kryptonite that comes in the form of Flies. If she hears a fly she will hide between your legs and shake with fear even if she can just hear the fly and not see it.

Candy gives cute little growly grunts when she wants attention as if she is talking to you. Her ears go back and she will look at you with puppy dog eyes which will melt your heart.

Candy is getting more interested in the cat in her foster home and has started to run after him or try to get to him if he’s sat on the window sill. If the cat is on the floor she is not much interested as it’s no fun if the cat isn’t trying to get away. She hasn’t met any other small animals but being a terrier there is always a chance she will chase. She could live with a very dog savvy cat if you have one.

We recommend teenagers over the age of 14 who would know how to deal with her demands for attention or preferably a child free house. She can get a little over excited when playing and can nip and tug your clothes. This is just her playing and is not meant as nasty.

Candy loves toys but be warned any toys must die. Squeaky toys need to be de squeaked and shredded and fluffy toys have to have their innards removed and spread so everyone can see how brave she is being. She will play with toys and a ball but they will all end up in bits.

Candy walks beautifully on a lead and gets excited when she knows she is going out. She will walk confidently by your side and loves to sniff and investigate her surroundings. She is very interested to see people when she is out on her walks and is friendly but can sometimes bark at people in the distance or across the road.

Candy sleeps on her foster mums bed quietly all night.

Candy is 95 % house trained and will go to the door to be let out. Sometimes she will scratch the door to let you know.

She is very greedy with food which needs to be monitored as she’s a bit of a chonk. She also loves treats and will try and grab any treat that is being given to the other dogs.

Candy needs a home with people home most of the day as she loves her humans. Older people that are still active and like to walk a few times a day or a family with older teenagers over 14 who know when a dog needs space and measures put in place if there are any visiting younger children. Candy needs to be an only dog.
