Candi Nana was in our rescue for almost a year. She was considered a "hard to place" dog, since she was
up in years and had a strong hatred for men. We finally placed her with a young couple who fell in love with her. Her trip
home was uneventful. Upon arrival at her new home, her new parents opened the car door. She bolted, hit the ground running
and never stopped. They tried to find her but to no avail. They live in Sanford. Candi was found dead on 415 in Osteen three
days later. She had managed to cross the river! She was on her way back home. I believe she would have made it, had someone
not killed her! She will be remembered always. Also, many thanks to Susan Pinto who stopped to check on Candi alongside
the road, check her collar for ID tags, and contacting us to let us know she had been found and was dead.
Please! Remember when adopting a new dog, that it may be confused, frightened,
and may not know your intentions. Please take care to restrain/confine your new pet properly until it is used to you and it's
new surroundings. Keep it's safety a top concern. Candi made us all painfully aware how important that can be.
