A huge thank you to our lovely volunteer, John, for taking these beautiful photos of Candy!
26/09/17 – Sweet Candy has gone to her new home!
Candy is a fun little Yorkie of 14 years according her previous owner, however her foster carer says she’s a Border Terrier cross and the vet thinks she’s more like 7-10. Her cuteness is undisputed! She came into the Oldies Club rescue because her owner could no longer look after her. She’s now having a jolly time in and Oldies Club foster home in North End, Berkshire while she waits for a permanent home.
A happy girl in foster: Candy settled into her foster home within a couple of days, taking all the changes in her bouncy, little stride.
Likes company most of the time: Candy is happiest when she’s with someone. She can be left for a while but if it’s much more than a couple of hours, there might be a small puddle for you to come home to. And that would make her sad! Apart from companionship, she needs regular access to the garden… for her peace of mind.
Good with other dogs: Candy is a sociable girl and could live with other small dogs.
Chases cats: She’s certainly read the manual on how to be a terrier, so anything small, furry and quick is fun to chase! Her foster carer said, “She likes cats… with chips and gravy!“.
Good with older children: Candy could live with nice children from age 10. She does like to play but can get over excited, which can make her bladder malfunction. So, ball games outdoors only!
Loves her walkies: Candy is a bright and active girl. She’s used to having two walks a day of about half an hour each. Her foster carer keeps her on the lead. Being a terrier, it’s safest not to rely on her recall when there’s squirrels and things around!
Good in the car: As long as you’re with her, Candy’s an intrepid traveller.
Candy’s favourite pastimes: She does like to get plenty of sleep and she particularly likes a cuddle. Walkies and ball games bring out her inner puppy but the sure-fire way to Candy’s heart is with food!
Candy’s dislikes: hoovers. She doesn’t hold with them.
Candy’s ideal home: Most important for Candy is that she has someone at home with her a lot of the time – for fuss, cuddles and just for reassurance so she can snooze in safety. She also needs her two walks a day as she’s still quite lively. A good garden in which to gallivant is essential.
Health notes: Candy is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and worm/flea treated. She had some mammary tumours removed but the only follow up she needs at the moment is regular tummy rubs to check they don’t return. If they do, obviously she’d need treatment.
Candy’s foster carer described her as: playful, affectionate, cuddly and fun!
If you would like to offer Candy a permanent home, please read our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:
Telephone: 0844 586 8656
Candy can be rehomed anywhere on the UK mainland, subject to a satisfactory home visit, but note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet her.
If you would love to offer a home to an oldie but your circumstances aren’t suitable, perhaps you would be kind enough to sponsor one of the special oldies we are caring for that, due to health problems, are unlikely to be offered a permanent home.
