Calli was thrown from a truck on a freeway, and immediately afterward was clipped by oncoming traffic. A good samaritan stopped to try to catch her, and rushed her to an emergency vet. Luckily she just had superficial scrapes and a bruised lung which would heal on its own. Calli’s all healed now, and is ready for adoption!
Calli’s background is a mystery, but the vet confirmed she’s about a year old, 45 lbs. She’s timid at first with new people, but warms up quickly (especially with women) and easily becomes a velcro, cuddly, dog. She’s young and energetic, and would benefit from a family that can give her a good amount of exercise and basic obedience training.
She needs slow introductions to new dogs, and can be defensive if cornered by a pushy, unfamiliar dog. She has gotten into tussles and a fight in her previous foster home over chews, and her foster mom was bitten and scratched up in the process of breaking up the fight– no puncture, but it did break skin and warranted a ‘bite incident’ report on her record. In her new foster home, she has had zero incidences with the resident dog and humans.
Calli is not kid-tested. She can be OK with neutral cats but should be supervised at all times, because she does try to play with them. She will need obedience training and structure in her new home to make sure she matures into a great canine citizen. So far she’s good in her crate overnight and between walks, knows ‘place’, sit, and ‘wait’, and is working on her loose leash walking and recall. On walks she only reacts to other dogs if they bark at her, but it’s easy to get her attention back on her handler. She is VERY food motivated and easy to lure in training.
