Calvin has been with Grrall for almost a year now. He is a special boy who has recently started working with a trainer. Calvin is a fantastic looking 3-year-old cream colored 70 pound Golden mix. Just look at those ears! He is house-trained, crates easily, and loves to play fetch and swim. He is smart and treat driven. He knows basic commands, so a calm and patient adopter could probably train Calvin much further. 


Calvin startles easily at noises and needs someone who is willing to take it slow and work with him to overcome his fears. He will do best in a quiet home as an only pet, no young children, and no apartments, as Calvin can be vocal. An experienced dog owner would be a real plus for him. 


Calvin likes being around his people and will follow you around because he wants to know where you are all the time. He is happy to be lying on the floor by your feet. Calvin really enjoys tennis balls and playing fetch and tug of war. It's such a delight to see him running around, playing and happy, a far cry from when GRRALL rescued him from a shelter. He also loves to swim so a pool would be a nice bonus. 


Please consider making a donation toward Calvin's training, he also has a Wishlist that he would love for you to see. Calvin would love a new bed of his own and a warm fuzzy blanket, bags of delicious dog food would help a lot! Oh! What happy dog wouldn't want new toys? Don't forget the flea meds too because Calvin LOVES to play in the grass. All of his Wishlist gifts will go with him when he finds his forever home.
