Cali had less than the best start in life. She was raised by a breeder who had kept her as a pup, but with health issues and job changes had no time

to work with her. She ended up as a wild pup, running free on the farm with her family pack and very little human interaction. When my friend Jody at

Bearfoot Border Collies learned of her and tried to adopt her, she could not be caught. It took almost two months for her owner to catch her (they never did manage to

capture her older brother)   Cali was very timid of people when I first met her and she needed a lot of patients and understanding.  She did not want to be touched, was

terrified of car rides, and not social with the other dogs.  But with time and patients she has come around to be a very sweet and trusting lady.

Shortly after her capture her breeder passed away and we never learned what become of the other dogs on the farm, so all the more grateful we managed to get

Cali a home.  Jody did a wonderful job rescuing Cali and starting her socialization.   I am very thankful to now be the owner of this special dog.

 

Cali is a great dog, never hyper, smart, and trusting of people, even strangers (considering her start this is remarkable). She is an excellent mother and

cares for her babies with a true tenderness, but no nonsense is allowed!  Her puppies have turned out to be bright, willing, active, and beautiful!
