this sweet dog needs a new home - after she was found to be lost and pregnant with a litter of pups.
Staff at Broomhill Farm Animal Sanctuary in Old Whittington, Chesterfield, thought Candy, a lakeland terrier, would soon be claimed by her owners.
But the ‘sweet natured’ and ‘loving’ dog has been there two weeks, and a veterinary check on sore eyes also revealed she was pregnant.
Jenny Mark, from the sanctuary, said: “Candy isn’t due just yet so we have a few more weeks to get organised but rearing puppies can be stressful for a dog.
“We feel that she would benefit from being settled in a more homely environment during her life-changing experience.
“Candy will also now need a super nutritious diet to ensure that she can provide for her puppies.
“Donations of food for her, especially things like sardines or puppy food would be greatly appreciated.
“Candy is very sociable and friendly with animals and people and will become best friends with anyone – especially if you have a biscuit in your pocket!”
n If anyone can offer Candy a home or long-term foster care until the puppies are old enough to be rehomed contact Jenny on 01246 456781.
