Background: Calliope is 7.5 years old and has been raised with us since she was just 8 weeks old. Calliope has belonged to our son her entire life and has only known what spoiled feels like. She sleeps in bed, loves food, loves people, loves dogs, loves everything life has to offer. She is a large boned Chihuahua with a lot of fur. She is a black and tan long coat. Calliope retired from our program several years ago and has remained as my son's pet. Unfortunately, our son is moving out and is unable to take all of his dogs with him and we can't keep her either. This is very sad for us, but we have to do what's best for Calliope. We are looking for a family who is willing to adopt an older, retired adult female. She is up to date on Distemper/Parvo and Rabies. She has had several dental cleanings and routine Vet care. She is microchipped. 

She knows her name pretty well, but it can be changed if necessary. She does well with both men and women. 

Calliope is coming from a breeding environment so will need to be potty trained in a new environment. At this time she is used to indoor potty pads and a dog door to use her yard. Like every animal we post for rehoming, we hope you would understand that they will have accidents initially and will need patience!  Calliope does well in the car, new people and with our vet staff.  She is dog door trained and crate trained. She is not leash trained, but can be trained easily. We have rehomed a lot of dogs over the years and they all seem to mesh into a new environment fairly well with time and patience. She is a very loving companion and would be an ideal pet for someone who needs a constant friend nearby. Please consider Calliope for your home and family.

We encourage all prospective adopters to really think this through and not take on a dog that may not work for you. We want her next home to be her forever home. To submit an application for Calliope, please use our puppy application for consideration.

  • Please be aware that Calliope is from a breeding home. She will not be fully potty trained in a new environment and will take patience and the ability to retrain to establish a new routine

  • Please read the post below about the 3/3/3 rule! Not one dog is like another and you need to be open minded when adopting an adult dog who is very used to their current environment

  • Shipping available (new owner agrees to pay for return shipping if placement doesn't work out)

  • Meet in greet recommended but not required
