This is Callie (formally Pam). She arrived into the THS in January with several other dogs from California. She was due to be euthanized in the US which still leaves me speechless. We knew from the moment we met her that she was to be apart of our family.

Callie is the most wonderful dog who has been a full member of our family since Day 1. She doesn’t bark, whine or growl…..ever! She loves playing with adults and children and is easily introduced to new situations. She has no separation anxiety, will only play with her own toys and will generally do anything that is asked of her.

She loves to go for walks and is brought out a few times in the day. We often run into the same people while out for our walks and it is now becoming a common theme for people to stop us and let us know that she is the most friendly and happy dog they have met. When she stands on her hind legs and smiles at you, you can’t help but smile back.

She is extremely friendly to everyone she meets. Her favourite thing to do is go to the dog park. She knows that while the other dogs are playing, the adults will be free to give her all the cuddles she wants. Once she is done introducing herself to everyone its time to play with her best friend the tennis ball. For hours on end, she will run after the ball and return it to our feet. She does need to be reminded to take a drink of water through it all though!

I like to think she has two personalities. She loves to play and run when she’s outside. But she loves to snuggle and cuddle when she’s inside. The perfect balance!

For anyone who is nervous about adopting a pet, please don’t be. There are plenty of dogs that need new homes. Callie has everything you want in a family pet, and it required little to no training from us.

I am so grateful for her addition into our family. I don’t think I can ever thank the THS enough.
