In greek mythology Calliope was the muse of eloquence and epic poetry and I can’t think of a better name for this darling girl, she’s certainly inspired me to sing her praises! A gorgeous mix of Rottweiler and Lab with the elegant manners of a Queen, Calliope’s pleading eyes speak volumes to anyone with the heart to hear. A family pet who’s lived in happy harmony with two children aged 4 and 6, small dogs and even cats, we’re told she played gently and respectfully with all and was just as good when meeting unfamiliar dogs too. Calliope was a lucky girl spoilt with 3 long walks a day but she isn’t at all hyper now that she’s not receiving them and while she can be a bit stand-offish in her kennel, it’s all for show and once she knows her friends (treats are a great ice-breaker!) a return visit is met with happy tail wags and a hand kiss through the door. As a typical sensitive Rottie, loyal to the core and totally bewildered by the disappearance of her people, Calliope puts up a tough front indoors but once outside she quickly warms to the small kindnesses of a soft voice and a gentle touch. She’s said to love toys and fetch but isn’t up for it today so we share some of her other favorite things instead–butt rubs and lots and lots of treats. Out in the street Calliope walks very nicely on leash, takes care of her business promptly and waits sooo patiently when I stop to chat with another volunteer and her dog, remaining perfectly calm and collected as she stands right by my side. In her previous home she didn’t appreciate anyone but her owner touching her food or treats so will need some follow-up observation and possible training from her new parents to learn to better sharing skills but with her smarts and appreciation for treats I’ve no doubt Calliope will make a quick study. Her former owner tells us she loves baths and getting into the water (there’s that Lab heritage!), knows commands for sit, stop and go and was previously crate trained, though she no longer needs it and is always well-behaved when left alone. Described as loving, caring, affectionate, playful and shy, Calliope is all these things and so much more. Truly get to know her and I guarantee you’re going to LOVE Calliope, she’s poetry in motion with a proven history of family loyalty and has much to offer an experienced adopter with a kindred spirit. Behind her initial grumbling (there’s that Rottie heritage!) lies a heart of gold so worth the patience to uncover and you’d be so lucky to welcome this precious, beautiful gem into your life. Please step up for Calliope today, she’s waiting for you to take her home again…
