Callie. Look at those eyes. Look at that beautiful coat, and those sweet, pointed – yet floppy – ears. She is a gorgeous dog.
From time to time you can convince her to play. She’ll chase a stick a few times, but she probably won’t bring it back to you. She’ll play pull, do a trick, or let you pet her, but she loses interest quickly. She would rather go on an adventure and explore the world around her.
Callie is a blue heeler – traditionally a herding dog. She wants to be put to work, and have a purpose. While we hung out at the beach, she was more interested in exploring the brush and the wilderness than anything else.
