Callie - posted 10/02/2012

From Courtney of Starkville, MS

About a year and a couple months ago I decided to adopt another dog since my last dog was living with my parents. I searched all over petfinder trying to find the right dog for me. That's when I found Callie (then named Cowlie) She was a 3 1/2 month old Australian Cattle dog/red Heeler. I went to the humane society that Wednesday afternoon to meet her and I instantly fell in love with her. She was very shy and timid but the look she had was that she just wanted to please if given the chance. I decided to wait till Thursday when my roommate was coming to town to make the final decision but I already knew she was going to be mine. We returned Thursday afternoon and it only took about 10 minutes for us to agree that she was going to be mine finally. I couldn't have been any happier that day. When I was finally able to bring her home she started to let her personality show and started running around with her back legs passing her front as she bolted across the yard. Now a year later she is the best dog that I could hope for. She is extremely obedient and well mannered she loves to play and loves attention. I couldn't have asked for a better companion. Even with her goofy quirks and slightly destructive moments, I couldn't love her more.
