Baby Calista's Info...

Baby Calista's Story...
Calista is just like the meaning of her name, beautiful - heart, soul, and coat! This sweet submissive girl is only about six months old and is pure love. Our best guess because of body shape, size, personaltiy and coat that she truly is an Aussie/Doxie mix.

Sweet and gentle with a lot of brains and energy this girl is up for loving whoever will give her attention. She craves being next to her person (Aussie trait) and is smart enough to figure out a way to get there. She loves playing with one of the tiny pups at her foster home but the big dogs here are something she needs to get used to. She gets along great with the one-year-old at her foster home but we ask that all of our adopters supervise children and dogs at all times. She would be great in a home with children over the age of five for sure.

Calista is wonderful in a crate all night long. She is not yet used to a leash but is doing better every day. As stated before, she is submissive, and she does piddle a touch when excited or being submissive and this will most likely go away as she gets older.

If you are interested in adopting this beauty please read on or go to the Adoption Process page of our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org.

All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.

Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baby Calista, a Oakley Dachshund/Australian Shepherd puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Australian Shepherd for sale in Oakley, or seeking a Dachshund/Australian Shepherd puppy from a breeder in Oakley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oakley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oakley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Dachshund/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oakley paves the way for another one to be saved.
