Brief Bio:

Meet Calvin! Calvin was abandoned by the breeder when he was found to be blind. Poor Calvin wandered around confused with no hope in sight. Luckily a rescuer was able to get him to the vet for a full check up. Calvin is an overall calm and easy going boy who just needs a home that is willing to give him a chance. Although most feel a blind dog is a lot of work, Calvin was born blind so he has adjusted very well and can move around like most dogs without issue. Calvin is patiently waiting!


"Hi Melody, We wanted to give you an update on how Calvin is doing in his new home. We originally took Calvin in as a foster to adopt but it was clear from the start that he would fit right in with our family and he was here to stay. He's got the sweetest personality and is an all around happy puppy. He enjoys playing tug of war with rope toys and still loves to chew with those puppy teeth! He's been amazing with potty training/ house breaking and can now hang out with us for longer periods of time on the couch and carpeted areas. We are still letting him out every hour or two while we are home. While we are out he stays in the xpen with his bed, toys, teethers and puppy pad. Most times he holds it until we arrive and let him outside! He's started to memorize the downstairs level of our home and soon we will work with training him to go up and down stairs and put baby gates up for safety. We can't thank our friends at Rocket Dog rescue enough for introducing us to Melody and Love second chances rescue! We are so lucky to have our newest little member of our family, Calvin. ~Melissa"
