January 30, 2022 … Meet Callie! Hey there, my name is Callie. I have a gentle, wise soul, because I have had more than my share of life experience. I mostly just hid when I first arrived here. I had been attacked and very badly hurt by a dog in my previous home, and I was very scared. I have a “battle scar” that I am proud of. I was so brave when the vet stitched up my injured face! My foster mom had to be very patient with me at first and let me approach her in my own time, but now we’re BFFs. Not only had I been hurt, I had also been severely neglected. I am learning how to play now, and I am learning that I don’t have to hide all the time. I’m so happy to be in a safe place! I am very watchful because I had to be before I came here, but now I love, love, love to be close to my favourite person. I don’t like it when my movement is restricted, so hold me close, but not too tight. I also don’t like sudden or loud noises. I still hide when I’m scared, but I always come out when I am ready. I will be happiest in a calm and quiet home with adults only. I might like older children as long as they understand me. I can be with cats, but no dogs please! I don’t eat a lot, but I do love my kibble! I nibble on wet food, but I’m not used to it.
