Calvin is a 6- to 7-year-old Golden boy who has been living with a rescuer in Turkey for the last 4 months. He was found in a shelter a long way from Istanbul. No other rescuers would take him because he was older and it was too expensive to fly him to Istanbul from this small town.
Luckily, one rescuer stepped forward and incurred the expense of flying him to her. He is a wonderful boy and lived in her garden with 17 other dogs.
Calvin, however, was not a fan of the cats at the house and so he cannot go to a home with cats. This playful, almost-senior boy is excited to find his forever home here in the Midwest.
Calvin came to MN in early September and fared well despite his long journey. He has been with me for a few weeks now and has been a very good boy!
On the first day, he had a small accident, but has had none since. He loves playing with my resident Golden and is a good snuggler. He does not know commands, but comes when you whistle, and is still a little timid about coming inside.
He needs a fence as he has a strong prey drive - squirrels are of great interest to him! He’s good on the leash and loves his walks. He likes a corner in my bedrooms to sleep the day away, but will follow me around when I am home. He sleeps on the the floor and occasionally crawls up on the bed.
He had his wellness vet check and is healthy, up to date on his vaccinations, and microchipped. He has no resource-guarding issues, but has shown some nervousness durning storms; he is not destructive, but rather just hides.
He’s a good eater, sleeper, and walker, a good playmate and a calm, well-behaved fella.
