February 2023:

Callie is continuing to do well in her foster home.   This girl is so happy and funny.   She is learning to play “hide & seek” with her foster mom and she gets so excited when finds her foster mom hiding.   Callie is a great listener and always goes outside to potty.   She is very routine-oriented and knows exactly when meal times are.  Haha!!   This is probably why she needs to lose a couple of pounds.   Callie loves her stuffed toys and enjoys a good game of fetch with them.   Due to her not having any bottom teeth, she is not destructive with her toys.   She loves her evening times of snuggling on the sofa with her foster dad.  Her energy level seems to match and adjust to whatever is happening at the moment; although she is not a dog that is going to enjoy jogging or running long distances.

Callie is wary of strangers and will bark to alert you when seeing them.   If someone approaches her too quickly, she will lunge to scare them away.  Once she knows and trusts people, she is excited to see them, wagging her glorious tail and bouncing around.   She loves her friends at the boarding kennel and is always excited to go stay there.  Callie is a wonderful, loving, easy-to-care-for girl that needs a patient home that understands her quirks and takes time with her to build trust.   Once this bond is formed, you will not find a more loyal loving companion.

Callie continues to do well in her foster home. But she is still waiting for her forever home. She’s a sweet girl who is house-trained and crate trained and is a perfect companion who loves to snuggle!

August 2022:

Callie, also known as Callie-Ann, is a great little boxer mix at only 55 lbs. She is estimated to be around 7 years old.   She is good with other dogs as long as they are not dominant.   She would prefer to be the only pet as she can be jealous of attention and protective of food and toys. Callie is pretty bossy with other dogs and can try to take over and dominate people as well. She will need someone to let her know that she is not in control.  Callie is sweet and snuggly and is eager to please.   Her favorite spot in the house is snuggled on the sofa with her favorite person. Due to having to have most of her bottom teeth pulled, she loves stuffed toys, soft food, and treats.  The bonus with this is that she has not torn up a stuffie yet!  Lol!!  She loves her crate and will go in there on command. She is very quiet unless someone knocks on the door or she sees something in the yard. She is wary of strangers and takes time to warm up. Treats always help to speed the “get to know you” process. She will be an easy addition to almost any home and is a great companion.

Prior update from Callie-Ann

Hi everyone, Callie here. I am a happy-go-lucky girl and am so thankful I was rescued. I am loving life, treats, rolls in the grass, stuffed toys and snuggles on the sofa. This is the life I’ve always dreamed of except for one thing… I am still looking for a family to call my own. Once we find each other, all of my dreams will come true! I am a mature girl around 6-7 years old, short and stocky but I still enjoy playing, hanging out in the yard and chewing my toys. I am protective and will alert you to strangers immediately. I hate the vet because every time I go they stick me with needles or try to do something I don’t like. I would much rather have these things done by someone I trust. I am good for baths and nail trims. I will sit for treats and will go immediately to my crate when told. I am smart and learn routines quickly. I like being a good girl because it gets me extra attention and rewards. I also like meeting other dogs and will play with them but I don’t like sharing my toys or food with them. I also don’t like being crowded and the dogs in my foster home just don’t understand I like my personal space so we don’t always get along in the house. I would really like to be the only dog in my forever home because I will prefer all of your attention. I tend to get spoiled easily. I also enjoy car rides and will do my best to jump in on my own.

Sometimes it’s hard for us short chubby girls to jump high so I often need a boost. Haha!

I hope I sound exactly like who you’ve been looking for. I really am a great all-around girl just looking for someone I can count on for the rest of my life.

With Love,
Callie Ann
