Cali is a happy, friendly Pit mix who is about four years old. She loves people and squeaky toys. Cali LOVES toys; she can keep herself amused for hours. Cali gets along with other dogs but prefers not to share her toys, so she'll do best in a home without dogs. She tested well with cats and does well with children 5+. Poor Cali has been waiting over a year. Her adoption fee is paid for; she also goes home with a bed, food, toys, treats, a collar and leash.   Cali is the perfect Leprechaun to add to your family
