Occasionally I will post special canines in need of a good home. These are never emergencies – all of these dogs are being well taken care of, but need the perfect forever home.
Callie is one of these special dogs. She is sweet, smart, and absolutely AMAZING. I got to hang out with her last week with her current human, Joanne. Callie needs a family with a yard so she can play hard and then crash with her human. As you can see from the photos she only has a little porch to play on, and she has to be on a long leash because is no yard. Things are a little cramped for Callie. Joanne’s arthritis is getting worse, so taking her for long walks is no longer an option :(.
Callie is EXTREMELY well behaved in the house (she’ll actually just lay right on your lap), and gets along really well all kinds of dogs and people. One caveat – she does not do well with alpha female dogs.
This is Joanne’s bio for the fabulous Callie:
Hi !! My name is CALLIE !!
People who know me well call me “Callie Bean” ‘cuz i guess that’s my middle name !
I was born in February 2006. I think i’m kinda cute !!
My Mom got me when i was an 8 wk old puppy. She still has the Humane Society card with my baby info. It says i’m a Lab/Terrier mix. Mom says a couple of months after she got me, it was obvious i’m a Border Collie mix.
I would push at her ankles sometimes when she walked, i was pushing at ants in the driveway with my nose….stuff like that !!
I’ve had some formal training. I learned some hand signals.
Mom also says i really need more training & from someone who is very very strong & a real leader. I guess i’m hard-headed & sometimes i do what i want or what i don’t feel like doing !!
Mom didn’t know when she got me that i’m a
Border Collile mix, i have some minor behaviors everyone believes will go away if & when i live where i can RUN & burn off some stifled energy. I get very frustrated being inside so much. There’s no yard where i live !!
Right now i live in a townhouse !! Not exactly fun for a
busy girl like me.
Mom has arthritis, so she can’t run with me or take very long walks.
She didn’t know when she got me that i was Border Collie.
She knows a townhouse is not right place for me.
Mom says she loves me so much & knows it’s best for me to live somewhere else, so i can run & get to do all the things a dog like me should be able to do.
I LOVE PEOPLE…………ESPECIALLY MEN !!! I’m always happy to see everyone !!
Mom “socialized” me alot when i was a puppy. I went everywhere with her……..literally. I even went to a road right next to the big airport where i watched big jet planes come & go. They’re really LOUD & Mom says i did great around them.
I LOVE GOING TO THE LAKE !! I go crazy when i see the lake. I jump out the car door & run into the water !!
I LOVE RIDING IN THE CAR !! All you have to say is:
“go for a ride ?” & i go sit by the car door……..
I LOVE TO RUN !! Mom says i run so fast i’m almost a blur, whatever that means !! Sometimes i run real fast thru’ the house & i don’t even stop to make a turn, i just fly !!
Mom says i need to live where there’s a big fenced yard.
If no fenced yard, at least somewhere with LOTS of land to run around .
I will need to learn to “COME” when called if no fenced yard. I need a very STRONG LEADER to teach me to listen & do what i’m told all the time. I’m a fast learner !
PLEASE call my Mom & she can tell you all about me.
You can ask her questions about me, too !!
My Mom’s name: Joanne
Her cell phone: 952-200-7660
Hannah’s met me once. She played with me & took pictures of me. I like her & i think she likes me !!
She can tell you how cute i am !!
I love my Mom a whole lot; but i know she wants me to live where i can run & be a Border Collie.
Maybe you have a place like that ??
Let’s meet & i can charm you with my smile & show you how sweet i am & show you how fast i run !!
Thanks for reading about me & looking at my pictures !!
