53957 – Cotton Candy
Why choose me?
Miss Cotton Candy is a big and beautiful girl who breaks my heart. While it’s hard to tell under all that hair, she’s underweight. While she is curious about people and friendly, approaching me to sniff and comfortable nearby, as soon as I moved a hand or tried to touch her, she flinched and pulled back. She’ll need a home where people are patient and gentle with her so that she learns hands bring good things–treats! pets! leashes for walks!–instead of bad. She seems to like other dogs, bounding along the fenceline and crouching playfully on the ground in reaction to Tornado’s play. While I suspect she won’t be at the shelter long, I hope I get to spend more time with Cotton Candy.
Cotton Candy has tested positive for heartworms. Athenspets will do our best to help with the cost of treatment, but an adopter or rescue needs to be prepared for the added cost and exercise restrictions of treatment. To learn more about heartworms, including how and why to prevent and treat them, please go to the American Heartworm Society’s webpage.
