Hi, my name is Accalia!

Adult Medium Female
Border Terrier / Mixed

This is Accalia, aka Cali, aka Scruffles, the little terrier mix with big a personality. She is approximately 2 years old and weighs about 28 lbs, making her the perfect size for either an apartment or a house. She is pretty chill and prefers to lay in the grass and watch the action than chase a ball, but she loves to go on walks around the neighborhood or at the park.

Accalia is housetrained, working on crate training, sleeps in her own bed at night and walks nicely on a leash. This sweet, affectionate scruffy girl would make the perfect companion for someone who enjoys warm snuggles on the couch and soft kisses. She does well with kids, though her exposure has been limited. She has not been tested around cats, but she seems to love all creatures, furry or not. Also, she may be a bit of a bird dog… she will literally bark at the sky when one flies over!

Her favorite toys are nylon bones and stuffed animals that squeak. She is very gentle, except when it comes to chewing on a bully stick – she has some powerful jaws! That being said, she doesn’t chew on anything that isn’t hers, though she does drag the occasional flip flop into her bed. (But that’s probably just because she enjoys being with her foster humans so much!) Giving her a good chew toy or bone will keep her well occupied.

When it’s time to go for a ride, Accalia is the perfect passenger. She rides quietly and calmly in the backseat. She loves to go anywhere as long as you’re nearby!

Accalia needs a family that will love her unconditionally, be patient with her while she learns the ropes in her new home, and comfort her during a thunderstorm. Oh, and give her belly rubs. All of the belly rubs.

Could Accalia be the right fit for you?
