Young and adorable, Cali is only 3 years old (d.o.b. 14.08.20) and 18 inches tall. This terrier-like girl is a little firecracker. Full of energy and character, she will make sure you are never bored. Cali is active, curious and very clever. She loves playing and going on her daily walks; she’s lead trained, happily wearing a harness.
Although she wants to come across as very sure of herself, Cali struggles with confidence and needs help in overcoming her fears. She is making great progress but she is still learning that strangers are not a real threat and there’s no need to be vocal. She usually warms to men quicker than to women, but given the time and space, she takes to everybody. She is currently living in kennels, where she works well with all staff.
She always appreciates an opportunity to meet a stranger outside first, before they enter her safe space. When out on a walk, Cali prefers to be ignored at first and approach strangers in her own time. It usually doesn’t take long before she’s asking for a fuss. She is making impressive progress around new dogs too, learning to ignore ones that intimidate her. Once out her kennel she runs up and down quite happily with no reaction to anyone or any dogs. She won’t miss a chance to let a cat know what she thinks of them by barking, so a no-cat household is a must.
Cali is a sweet, healthy and affectionate girl, in need of a quiet and loving home. She will be a good match for a family with no small children and no other pets. With time, patience and consistent training Cali will soon show her true colours, of a loyal, fun and incredibly adorable companion. She will require time to settle and adjust without any pressure or expectations being placed on her too quickly.
Cali is currently living in Cliffe Kennels.
