Sophie & Candy (Homeless Hounds, Lancashire)

Sophie and Candy are a cutie pair of Jack Russell Terrier crosses. They are 11 year old sisters – Sophie (black) and Candy (white) – who have come into the care of Homeless Hounds in Lancashire because their owner sadly passed away. They have a strong bond and need a home together. HH welcome applications from the North West but unfortunately are unable to consider applications from further afield.

This gorgeous older pair of ladies are described as gentle, friendly, happy dogs who can be excitable. They are used to being bathed and they travel in a car but they shake a lot. They are reported to be healthy dogs, however they are overweight and need to lose a pound or two.

Sophie and Candy are house trained. They’re not used to being in a crate, but they will happily snuggle up and share a bed together. They sometimes pull on the lead but are still easy to manage, being dinky. They know “sit” and are good girls around food.

Apparently they can be a bit yappy (as Terriers can be!) and it’s felt that because they have been used to living with an elderly lady, they would be most suited to a home where someone is with them most of the time to reduce stress. Sophie and Candy appear to be good around other dogs. They have not had much interaction with young children.


The girls need a caring stable home where they can have regular exercise and a healthy diet to boost their fitness as they enter retirement.
