Cally was listed as 4 years old by the High Kill Moreno Valley shelter where she was rescued. Poor Cally was sent for spay and massive tumors were found on her ovaries and at that point the vet thought she would have to euthanize her because the tumors were so big that she didn't think they could be removed.. The vet spent some time exploring and manipulating the masses and was able to remove the tumors afterall.. the biopsy results came back negative for cancer :)
Cally is 11 years old, not 4 as the shelter had stated, and it is obvious that she was used for breeding and then dumped when no longer needed.
Cally has had a very rough life and for some reason doesn't trust in certain situations. She has a tendency to snap/bite to let you know she is not happy when being handled, but Cally is NOT an aggressive dog.. she just needs to learn some manners.
Depending on how soon she can find a foster home (or her forever home) Saving Great Animals CA is committed to have a local trainer onboard to help with the transition into a home and address her behavior which several trainers have already said probably won't take much, but she must be in a home environment first!
Cally is in very good health! She is good with other dogs, walks well on leash, sits and catches treats!!
What Cally needs now is a home where her humans will not expect much of her but allow her to relax and learn to trust.. she will be a great companion and lay by your side as she is a mellow girl, easy going and doesn't ask for much. Plus she is very quiet, she just needs her space. Cally has been at a vet hospital in San Diego for the last 3 weeks since she left the shelter and really needs to begin the final chapter of her life.. her "golden years" :)
Can you be the one to give her that chance??
