found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Calypso ~ aka Callie was covered in ticks and malnourished, in fact emaciated. She was dumped and barely surviving with her pups in a junk yard with 30-40 feral dogs. She is so very sweet and gentle. She has had a very rough life and seems so grateful and appreciative of any kindness and comfort she gets.
Calypso has successfully been treated for her heartworms and is ready for her new home. She now loves coming in the house and enjoys the comfort of her crate with a fluffy quilt to lay on. She takes treats very gently and wants to please. She lays on a dog bed and acts like she is afraid to do anything that might get her in trouble, but is getting more relaxed every day.
We think she has great potential to be rehabbed into a wonderful companion. You can see the joy in her in just having a safe comfortable place to lie down.
Callie is spayed, current on shots and micro chipped.
Update from Calypso's Foster mom July/2009
I’ve been working with Calypso to learn how to be a dog and play. She didn’t even know how to play with a ball. Dakoda is teaching her the ropes though. And as you can see in the last picture of my girl I adopted that started me on this journey with you guys Dakoda is also doing very well.
She is VERY loyal to people, she likes to stay by your side, is VERY easy to walk on a leash. Sits and lays down when you ask her. She is heart worm negative – that’s why she didn’t need the 2nd heart worm treatment. She is very good with other dogs. She is learning to run for the ball and just Sunday she learned to pick it up and start to bring it back (you’ll see the one with the ball in her mouth). She did it a couple of times but is still learning how to play and be a dog. She sleeps on her little bed at night and has never had any accidents in the house. She also smiles!!! I still can’t get that picture yet, but it is too cute!!! She is really awesome. Her temperament is very laid back and easy going. It took a while to allow us to put a leash on her to take her for a walk. She was very timid to go on the walks, but now..... now she’s hopping and whining along with Dakoda and Sheena saying “Hurry Foster Mom, I want to go for a walk! Hurry!!!!” She also is no longer wary or afraid to sniff and smell the grass and other scents that normal dogs do. She is not food aggressive at all. Dakoda started eating out of her bowl the other day and she barked once and came to Allan to tell on Dakoda since all the girls know they are only allowed to eat from their own bowls!
She is also coming out more to socialize with us (she used to hide under the dining room table or go back to her bed in our master bedroom. Now she waits for me to come home from work in the living room, and when the back door opens, she’s out the door along with everybody else. She’ll lie next to me on the couch when I’m watching TV and she finally is giving me kisses. She is awesome, sweet, beautiful and very generous with her affection. (She does shed a lot though and doesn’t really like when I rake her. She dips her head and ears a little and puts her tail a little between her legs but stands there contritely so I don’t do it for too long.) She doesn’t get in the pool like the other two – but Allan said that’s all we needed is for THREE Dogs with DOG HAIR in the pool! So I guess that’s a good thing.
