Caleb is homeless…for now

Caleb has his new home!

Update: Caleb has a new home in Connecticut! Yay!

It’s strange how things sometimes work out.

Caleb, who I have written about here before, went to his new home on the east coast of the USA last week. We had thought this would be a perfect placement – Caleb would have another dog to play with, and with owners who already have a dog from us (Tula’s brother).

Unfortunately, it was not to be. Their male dog HATED Caleb, and took every opportunity to kick his little tiny puppy butt into next week. Sadly, his owners made the decision to return him, and Kristrina, who owns Caleb’s cousin Leah, made an emergency rescue mission from CT to NJ to pick him up.

Caleb is now in Connecticut, where he’s staying with Kristina and her family. He’s doing fine, but he’s once again looking for a new home. We’ve decided that it will be easier if we can find him a home on the east coast, within driving distance of Connecticut, rather than getting him back here to Toronto.

Potential homes for Caleb must have NO OTHER male dogs, unless you can prove to us that any male dogs in the house are very mellow and good with other dogs. Caleb is a very smart, sweet natured, affectionate little boy, and he LOVES other dogs (along with cats!), but he can be playful and rambunctious with dogs, so any other dogs in the home must be good with smaller dogs.

You must be within easy driving distance of Connecticut, and willing to pick up in person.

Caleb is lead trained, heels, sits and knows his ‘down’ command, and is litter box trained. He needs some additional crate training to be 100% house broken. He is stunningly well bred, sired by BIS BISS WKC Breed Winning AKC/JKC Int Ch Bullmarket Versace out of BPIS CKC CH Bullmarket Absolut Harvest Moon. He is being placed as a companion dog only, or an obedience/rally/agility prospect.

I am very emotionally invested in Caleb, and especially after this failed home, I’m going to be watching like a hawk to make sure any home he ends up in is a home that *deserves* such a special little guy!! I’m having to stop myself emotionally from just insisting that he comes back here, to us. If Sean had his way, he’d already be in the car driving to Connecticut.

Have I mentioned lately that being a breeder sucks?

    This email hit me in the gut. Who could give up that amazing little guy? If my landlord hadn’t set a two-dog limit on my household, I would take Caleb in a heartbeat. Good luck!

    Caleb sounds like the puppy I wish I had gotten when I got Bacon. Sweet and mellow, not dominant, ready to be Logan’s little brudder. I could rehome Bacon, but as much as he can be a PITA (house pooping, food stealin’, competing for sole possession of one Mommy aka crazy dog lady), I’ve grown rather attached to the rascal. He *might* settle in somewhere new in short order, but I fear not….when I leave the house he sits on the stairs and gazes out the front door until I return, even if Ken is home; he follows me EVERYWHERE, I can’t be out of his sight; and if at all possible, he needs to be welded to part of my body. And then there’s the conga line dance he does when we return from an errand, however brief. It’s SO silly.

    Love just happens, even when a lesser emotion would be more convenient.

    Carol, I think this is fate telling you to take him back!! Rally is so much fun, and really, how often do you find a Frenchie that’s so into you and begging to work??!! You love the little guy- and he loves you. Being a breeder does suck a lot of the time… but it’s enjoying the creatures that you’ve made happen that make it worth it. Just say’n. xoxo
