Callie’s adoption story

Callie with her forever family.

Callie was a rescue dog. She was one day from being euthanized. My wife had been trying to get me to agree to another dog after we had recently lost two within a year.  After saying no to many, I saw Callie’s picture and immediately felt a connection. We agreed to foster her for the weekend, and after about 8 minutes we called and told the adoption agency we wanted to keep her. It’s been 3 years now and she has been the most wonderful addition to our family. I work from home and she is my constant companion. She likes to ride on the boat and sit in my lap when we watch TV. During working hours, she is curled up next to me in my office, and in the winter months she likes to curl up in front of the fire. I feel like she rescued me. We have never regretted adopting for one minute, and she is our “baby girl”.

Thanks for sharing Callie’s adoption story with us, Kem! It sounds like she has been the perfect addition to your family. We’re so glad you decided to foster and adopt!
