Callie - The Sweetie Pie
Hi - I’m Callie! I’m a 2.5 year old female lab / cattle dog mix, weighing about 45 pounds. I am fully potty trained, crate trained, and walk well on a leash.
I was rescued from a hoarding situation and was extremely timid and weary of humans. I spent a year with a foster family and was still very nervous. When my foster had to relocate, a local trainer volunteered to work with me to build my confidence. After a couple months of training, I have built a ton of confidence and am doing very well in my new foster home. I’m still shy, especially around new people, but I’m able to work through my shyness now after some time with someone new.
Some people may describe me as sweet, shy, docile, and super smart. I need a family that understands my comfort level so they can help me grow while being sensitive to my needs and not exposing me to unduly stressful situations.
My ideal home would be with a patient family that understands my history and will continue my training to help build my confidence. I would thrive with an available enclosed outdoor space, as I’m most comfortable and playful in the yard. I would do great with or without kids and other dogs. Cats, I’m still not so sure about!
My adoption fee is $300, this fee covers my first year of vaccinations, spay/neuter, and microchip. Do I sound like the dog for you? You can fill out an application to adopt me at http://www.thecantufoundation.org/adopt.html
