PARIS — If there were a dating website for dogs, Callie’s profile might read, “Large and lovely female is looking for love and companionship. Interests include hiking, playing ball and long car rides with no destination. I’m a connoisseur of toys. At the end of a long day, I love to cuddle up on the couch and snuggle my way through a Netflix marathon.”

Callie is a 3-year-old St. Bernard mix seeking adoption at Responsible Pet Care. She is house trained and knows her obedience commands. She prefers to have her person all to herself and to be the only dog in the household.

Perspective adopters may contact the shelter to make a date and meet Callie. They can also view a video of her and other pets waiting for new homes at
