Hey there! You can call me Candy Cane. I'm a Texas boy originally, and found myself at a shelter in Texas a little while back. 

I’m a puppy and learning all the new things that puppies need to learn. Typically, as a puppy, I get along with dogs, cats, kids and adults. As a puppy, I have lots of energy and need a family that has time and patience for a puppy.  The reward though, puppy kisses and lots of them! My foster in Texas says I'm the sweetest little man you could ever meet. I get along with dogs, cats, and kids that are in the house right now. Since I was a stray, I am a bit protective over food, so I should be fed separate from other dogs in the home. Like I mentioned, I get along with other animals, but I do have an issue with resource guarding. I like to protect my food, toys, and sometimes even my person from other animals. It's not that I don't like them, I'm just so use to fending for myself on the streets, I haven't broken out of that mindset yet. So, I would do great as the only animal in the home. But, I would do OK with other animals in the home as long as toys were kept to our own areas, and someone willing to work with me on my issues. I know sit, stay, wait, & down. I'm working on shake, but it’s a work in progress. I'm not fully potty trained yet, but I'm getting way better every day. I love cuddles, hugs, pets, and treats. I will do anything to please you. I have a very playful and energetic personality, so I would love a big back yard or someone to take me running, for long walks, or even the dog park!!

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
