About Caliope

Caliope has amazing patience and can be very submissive when it comes to interacting with other dogs in the home. She is becoming more adventurous in terms of exploring the house, and she is an excellent (and quiet!) guest. Caliope can often be found sleeping in an open crate at night or when left alone in the house. She really enjoys her walks and does pull a bit when she sees birds or squirrels, but she’s otherwise a good walker on leash and entertains her fosters by enthusiastically prancing down the street.

Caliope is friendly with everyone—kids, adults, and dogs. There are no resident cats in her foster home, but she has passed by a few cats while outside on walks and hasn’t seemed particularly interested in them. She’s generally submissive and avoids conflict, so she would likely mesh well with a dog-savvy cat in her future home and would make an excellent addition to a home with another sweet and welcoming dog.

Caliope would be well suited to a home with an active adopter who enjoys long walks or is even looking for a jogging partner. She is super friendly but also independent—she doesn't need a lot of supervision or constant attention but does love to receive affection. Caliope’s training needs are fairly minimal, and she would be a good match for the vast majority of loving homes.

If you think Caliope sounds like the easygoing dog for you, please consider adopting Caliope.
