Calliope and her sister, Callista, were found as strays in rural SC and then taken to a high-kill shelter there. She is the cutest thing. Calliope is a healthy and happy little girl! She loves to play and get belly rubs. She loves toys, especially balls, since she loves chewing. Calliope will need to be provided with appropriate chew toys. Calliope is overly curious about cats. She would probably do best in a cat-free home.
True to her cattle dog heritage, Calliope is a classic herding dog. She has a high energy level and needs daily exercise/work. Calliope has a tendency to herd other dogs in her effort to control them. She is a great age to bond with people and begin some training. Calliope is looking for someone who has the time and patience needed for a playful, active young dog.
