About Calvin

*Calvin is currently being fostered in HOUSTON, TX. He is available for local or out-of-state adoption to the perfect family! Transport to out-of-state adopter will be coordinated by Red Collar Rescue and is included in the adoption fee. Calvin was adopted from RCR in 2012 as a young Lab. He was recently found injured and alone, wandering in a park, and was picked up by animal control. He did not have on a collar and tag, but thankfully RCR was contacted through his microchip. We tried to reach his adopter, but to no avail. We immediately took Calvin to the vet. He had torn ACLs on both of his back legs, making it difficult for him to walk. Calvin has had orthopedic surgeries to repair both of his rear legs, and he is currently going through physical therapy to help him walk again without pain. Although he has been making steady progress, he is expected to always have some limitations in his mobility. Specifically, his hind legs are bowed out when he walks; he can only tolerate walks up to 1/2 mile at a time. Despite that, Calvin still has plenty of life in him. His hearing, eye sight and sense of smell are as sharp as any young dogs. Everything (except his legs) works perfectly in him! Calvin is a big loving lug of a dog. He's perfectly house trained and he does well in a kennel. He doesn't touch anything that's not his. He is quiet most of the time, but he will alert you if he hears something outside the house. A perfect alarm system! Though he is a senior dog, he still loves to play some. He loves his tennis ball and will make a pirate growl when he wants you to play fetch with him. His exercise need is low. But he loves his daily walks and is always ready to go with you. Please contact info@redcollar.org for more information on adopting this sweet and handsome gentleman!
