  • Callie

Callie2

Picture 2 of 5

Callie was hit by a car and ended up at Chicago Animal Control. No one reclaimed this very shy girl, and she’s now looking for a patient forever home. Callie is estimated to be no more than a year old, We are not sure what Callie has experienced in her short life, but whatever it was has made her very timid. Her foster mom says she’s very quiet and calm in the house, almost as if she isn’t used to being inside. Callie likes to find a quiet place to tuck away, so her foster mom is keeping her on a leash to encourage her to explore. Outside, Callie seems to perk up more! She loves to run with her foster mom and can go for miles without a break. Callie is housebroken and crate trained. She needs to build confidence and work on eye contact with her handler. Callie has no issues with new people or visitors in the home. She doesn’t take treats directly from her foster mom, but will eagerly take them if you put them down for her and walk away! Callie hasn’t shown a playful side yet and we doubt she understands what a toy is. Callie is scared of other dogs on walks, and does her best to avoid them. She’d likely do best with a confident companion that may be able to help her come out of her shell. Her adoptive family will need to understand it will take time, but that she will be a wonderful companion given the right opportunity to prove herself.
