Our precious dogs name is Callie. She is 4 years old and has been a part of our family since she was 5 months old. Unfortunately my wife and I have decided that Callie needs a new home with better circumstances. I work for a fire department and am gone 24 hours at a time. We have two small children so my wife has not had the time to take Callie on runs very often to allow her to use up some energy. Callie does not bark except when she is outside wanting to come back inside. She has never growled or tried to bite any person or any other dog. She is a great dog. Callie does have one fault. If she has Kaye's around the house all day, then she doesn't like to be crated. She will try to push on our wire crates until it eventually breaks. We have went through a few over the years. She does much better when exercised. She is truly a great dog and we are sad to part ways but we feel she deserves better than what we are providing.
