*** check out the videos of Candy! ***

We rescued our sweet, goofy 5 year old 50 lbs Lab mix from a high kill shelter in PR when people who knew how great she was reached out to SFTH, begging us to save Candy’s life. We did, and Candy has since made her way to NY where she is now living in a wonderful foster home with her trainer, her trainer’s husband and their assortment of dogs and cats, all of whom Candy gets along with. She may need a little correction and some boundary settings in the beginning, she can be a little bossy but gets along well with dogs who do not behave aggressively towards her. In fact she loves to playfully chase her foster siblings around the yard!

Indoors Candy is pretty chill, loves her crate and sleeps through the night and is completely housebroken. She enjoys having her own space at times, and other times she likes hanging out with the family. Outdoors, Candy enjoys the backyard with the other dogs, rolling in the grass and coming to you when you call her. And you haven’t lived until you see this silly ‘Island Girl’ doing her version of snow angels in wintertime! But more than anything, Candy wants to please, so having good leadership is great so she can enjoy being a happy, loving member of her family pack.

Candy is spayed, microchipped, heartworm neg, on preventives and UTD on her shots -and- she comes with a lifetime of Bark Busters training! If you are interested in learning more about adopting Candy, please fill out our online adoption application below and Beth will contact you within 48 hours.


Candy is being fostered in NY, ask to meet her today!
