AGE: Calypso is a sensitive 1-year-old Shepherd mix who was living on the streets and is looking for a warm, secure home to call her own.
PERSONALITY: She is a real a sweetheart once she warms up, and will be content sitting next you as you build trust with her. She plays well with other dogs and would benefit greatly from having a doggie playmate.
HIGHLIGHTS: Calypso will need a patient adopter who will slowly introduce her to new things and give her sense of home. She is treat-motivated, takes them gently and knows how to sit! Continuing her training will help you build a close bond.
AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix. Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends.
COST: Adoption fee: $120, and includes a free in-home, one-hour training and a wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Calypso is spayed.
