About 7 years ago a young man named Todd McColgin adopted a pit mix puppy named Callie. While he met all our “paper” criteria, we always have concerns with a young person starting out, and especially with a pit mix. Melinda did the home visit and let Callie go with fingers crossed. Todd has consistently stayed in touch every year with updates.

Callie is the love of his life. Todd even found a doggie day care a few years ago that let Callie and her “pittiness” in so she can have “camp” days. Todd is a rare adopter who goes above and beyond to ensure his girl has a terrific life. Todd even has Callie tattooed on his arm!
