My name is Callista, but some people call me the Sass Master on account of my sweet and sassy personality!

I fancy myself a squirrel-hunter! They're so fun to chase. Never caught one...but it's still fun! I like to go for walks and I walk very politely on a leash. I'm highly motivated to learn new things...if you'll dangle a yummy treat in front of me! I ride very nicely in the car, too.

Now, I'm a bit of a special girl. I fall madly, deeply in love with one person, MY person. I love to get belly rubs and ear scratches from that person! My person is my 'safe place,' so sometimes I'm anxious around new people. But fear not, I'm working on being more social and brave! I will love the person who adopts me forever, but I'll need you to advocate for me with new people and places. You will be my hero and love for life! So if you're ready to be my hero, let's get to it!

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you find an animal that you are interested in, submit an adoption application through our website and we will send your information to the foster family. Once we have reviewed the application and contacted your references, we set up a home visit.

Adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $195 for puppies. This fee includes shots, a spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as any other treatment the animal may have needed upon being rescued.
