Callie (ADOPTED!) is 3 years old and and weighs approximately 38 lbs. She is a sweet, loving and fun girl, who LOVES to play fetch with toys, balls, pine cones, etc.  Callie knows some general obedience, is house trained, and learned how to use a doggy door in her original home.  Callie is also crate trained.  She already been spayed, and has no known health issues.

She was surrendered by her owners, who loved her very much, but she nipped a stranger and they were forced to give her up. Callie is now being fostered by her trainers. In her trainers' opinion, Callie does well with people she knows and trusts, but like many cattle dogs is suspicious of strangers. Although she has apparently nipped a few strangers in the past, she has not hurt anyone badly, that we know of. She can be reactive to strangers on leash. Her current fosters/trainers are willing to help Callie's new adopters work with her on this issue with strangers.

Callie is good with some dogs. She lived with some small poodles in her last home. She seems to be somewhat dog selective, and can be in a home with another dog, provided they are a good match. We do not know how she is with cats.
