This squishy girl is Callie. She was rescued from a neglectful situation in the south before she was transported to the safety of NEAS. Despite her tough start, Callie is oh-so-sweet. At 2.5 years old she walks well on leash and loves going outside to stretch her legs and play. Frozen kongs filled with peanut butter are her favorite, but she’s not in the business of refusing any yummy treat! Callie would do best in a home without feline or equine companions.

Callie spent some time in a loving foster home and here is what they had to say:

“Callie seems to be a nervous girl when settling into a new home. She will need time and patience to settle in.
She cohabited really well with other resident dog (played/ate with/shared bones & toys) who is a 50lb male pit with mild high arousal
She did well with the children (ages 5 & 3) would playfully nibble at their toes and shared her toys.
She slept well in the crate by herself the first two nights, then had free roam in the room with baby gate and slept through the night
She did well going on a hike with the whole family and the other dog
She does well in the car

She is house trained!
She has a bit of a prey drive toward small animals.”

 

Callie is a big lady with specific needs, which makes her one of our Unfurgettable Friends! If you are interested in learning more about Callie, email unfurgettable@neas.org ATTN: Callie and fill out the online pre-adoption form.
