Biography

Our friendly, energetic GSD mix Calliope is 8 years old and ~70 lbs. We recently welcomed out first baby to the family and the transition has been tough on Calliope. Unfortunately Calliope is jealous and her behavior is anxious and nervous around the baby, with frequent pacing and whimpering, which is worrying. She has not been aggressive, but she is clearly frustrated. On top of this we are now expecting our 2nd later this year. Unfortunately we are not able to provide the attention and active lifestyle she is accustomed to and deserves.

After much deliberation we've decided rehoming is the best option.

Calliope spent several years doing off-leash pack walks where she got great socialization with many dogs and honed her off-leash and recall skills. We did every training class at Petco including the AKC Canine Good Citizen. She also spent several years as an office dog. We have 2 cats who she gets along very well with. All in all she's a great dog, but she her behavior around the baby is concerning and we desperately want to avoid the shelter. She has never had a biting incident of any sort.

Overall she is healthy and up to date on all shots. Her one health condition is a fully manageable eye condition called Pannus which requires daily eye ointment. Thanks for reading, happy to answer any questions!
