Maggie's Candy adopted!

Congratulations to Maggie's Candy, who found her forever home with Courtney and Marcus and their dog Paisley.

Candy recently arrived from Taiwan and is a friendly and engaging petite girl with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. She was found on the streets intact, heartworm positive and erlichia positive, and spent a couple of months getting healthy and then spayed. She loves people, other dogs and is also good with cats. Courtney and Marcus are a young couple who were lookng a second dog as another family for them and a companion for Paisley, who is a bit shy but playful, and their kitten. When everybody met, Candy didn't take long to charm Courtney and Marcus - she's really good at gazing lovingly at you and batting her eyelashes, which she did to Marcus. It probably took about 2 minutes to have him under her thumb, er, paw. She and Paisley got along well and before long, everyone was loaded into the car for the drive home. She's doing great and Courtney sent the following email:

She is doing wonderful. The ride home was so easy she slept the whole way home and played as soon as she got here. Paisley is really enjoing her company and the 2 of them have been having a blast and without any problems. We are so glad she is a part of our family and it seems that with each day she is becoming more comfortable. She is also getting along with the kitty. You were right about her being a lover. She sits right by us and just loves when we pet her and talk to her. Thank you so much for suggesting her. We absolutely love her and her sweet personality.

Candy would like to thank Maggie and ARTT for finding her, getting her healthy and sending her to us. She thanks the Welcome Waggin' for meeting her at LAX and especially Marty for taking her home overnight. She's grateful to the CP Walking Team for getting her regular exercise and love during her stay there. And she's indebted to Laura P. for doing the home visit that led to her finding this wonderful family. Finally, she thanks the Placement Team and PA Lisamarie for making the match. Attached is a picture of the new family.

Welcome home Candy!
