Please note: Kalliope will be rehomed with another dog for company.

Kalliope (affectionately known as Kalli) has come from a puppy farm and has just started to discover how wonderful life can really be. She has blossomed and is quite a sassy little girl these days! This sweet dog is just learning to accept affection, and will approach her foster carers for pats in the morning and now shares her bed with her other doggy foster brothers and sisters.

Currently we are working with Kalli on her training – the outside world is all just so new to her. She is learning to respond to her name and is working very hard on mastering her house training. Kalli does not have good recall at this point in time and is unreliable off lead. She will run towards another dog or human if not supervised and does not quite understand the potential dangers of the world around her.

An ideal home for Kalli will be with another 1-2 dogs which whom she can bond, and humans home for most of the time if possible. She will thrive with experienced dog people that will be able to devote the time into Kalli to see her evolve into the happy companion she so deserves to be. Patience with Kellie as she takes time to settle into her new environment will be important; she will need her own space and to feel secure and safe.

Kalli does get very excited by cats and will chase them if they run so it is best her new home be feline free.

It’s not hard to love Kalli – she is an incredibly sweet girl.
