The only kind of sweet that won't give you a toothache... Meet CANDY! (PS if you ever need some pickup lines clearly we've got a few...) CANDY is super kind and affectionate with her people. She always wants to be snuggled up next to her humans and although she requires a proper introduction to new people where she is allowed to approach first, you soon have a snuggle buddy for life. Although she's fine in an apartment in that she's not overly energetic or vocal, she has had some issues feeling comfortable enough to go to the washroom on walks which is why a house with a backyard would be beneficial for her. An apartment would be ok as long as her people are super committed to helping build her confidence on walks and understanding if there are a few accidents while she figures things out. She enjoys walks but is being fostered outside of the city so is used to a quieter environment. She typically gets an hour to an hour and a half of walking in per day which works well for her but she also has a high energy foster brother who she loves playing with! She would be a great second dog as he has really helped to build her confidence and she loves the one-on-one time. In a group of dogs, she can be shy and will often try to hide behind her people if she feels uncomfortable. She doesn't like being approached by other dogs too quickly and will need to continue to work on her socialization. Training classes would be ideal as it allows her to spend time with other dogs in a controlled environment. CANDY is also a flight risk so she shouldn't be off leash in open areas and her people will need to be VERY careful with her around any open doors. She will run. She hasn't been tested with cats but has shown signs of a prey drive. She has met a couple children on walks and has been ok with very calm and controlled actions.
