3 year old • Female • 11 lbs
Kallie is mostly tan with smatterings of white; black around her eyes, a black and white muzzle; and thin, delicate legs.
Kallie is super-sweet, silly, and smart. She is so funny and she makes us laugh every day! Kallie has a good mix of rest and play. She likes playtime when she first wakes in the morning and in the evening before bed. Otherwise, Kallie is perfectly content hanging with her people and having a cuddle or a snooze nearby. She loves to run around and play tug-of-war with just about any cloth toy.
She loves other dogs, and in her previous home romped around with an 85-pound Mountain Dog! Kallie loves to go on walks, and isn't bothered by squirrels or other dogs. She's a good, observant walker, although she can pull a little bit when she wants to be the leader.
She knows the Sit command and understands when you tell her to get a toy. We are working on other commands, like Stay. She is very treat-motivated and loves to chew on bones or her Kong.
Kallie is crate-trained. She likes her crate, and even sometimes chooses to hang out in there on her own. She sleeps in her crate through the night. She is completely house-trained and we have had no accidents.
Kallie would be a great dog for any type of home. She likes following around her person and doesn't mind smaller spaces.
Although Kallie is generally shy with new people, after arriving in our home, she quickly became attached to one person. Then after 10 days she felt comfortable with everyone in the household. She prefers to stick with her people and particularly loves the women in her life.
Kallie is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative and spayed.
Kallie was surrendered to a local shelter because her owners could no longer care for her.
