Good with kids

Callie is a 2 year old Rat Terrier mix who we rescued from the shelter. She's a petite little thing who weighs about 7 lbs tops. Callie loves to be carried. When our rescuer went into the shelter and opened Callie's kennel door, Callie jumped right up into her arms! She seems to be most comfortable when she can be right up next to her human. Callie is tiny enough (and light enough) to fit in a little purse/bag and stick right by your side, running errands with you, etc.

The world is a pretty big place for a tiny girl like Callie and she tends to be a bit shy. She will need a patient owner who is willing to give her time to blossom. We know that the right owner with a soft touch will teach her that the world is a happy place and she's safe and loved. She has a sweet temperament and just needs to find her furever person!

Callie is only an option for a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years (owned personally not a parent's or roommates dog and not petsitting a dog). If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 8 and on the mellower side.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
