Special adoption considerations:   2nd Dog required in home to give Calvin some confidence building lessons, no kids under 12 years of age due to his shyness. Calvin is a young puppy, frequent potty breaks, and socialization needed.

Well Hello There!  I am Calvin, Calvin the courageous lab puppy, or at least I am learning to be courageous!  I am a friendly, smart wiggly Lab Mix puppy but I am a bit shy at first in new situations and am learning to be more confident.  I am looking for my perfect forever family and I need you to already have a dog in your home so I can build my confidence from him/her!!!  I am  excitingly waiting to   find my furever home with a patient, wonderful family that will love me always!  

I love to play with other dogs and have lots of puppy wrestle sessions! I want to be home and be able to go rompin' around my very own yard smelling the pretty spring flowers!  And of course, like any good lab, I am sooooo ready to learn to doggy paddle - can you teach me??!!  My dream would be long walks sniffing along, doggy parks, peanut butter kongs and a cozy bed to curl up with my new brother or sister - I don't mind sharing with you either!

 My foster mom at the shelter says " Calvin was the shyest puppy in his litter, but his confidence has improved a lot. He does get worried in unfamiliar environments, especially when on leash.  He would be most successful in a patient, loving home with a second dog without small children (under 12 years old).  Calvin is sweet and lovable, and bonds strongly with his favorite person.  He loves treats and loves to learn". Check out some video of Calvin learning to sit and come on a leash!!!

Since I am soo young, I will be a big responsibility and take a lot of time, lookin' after and training.  I am a blank slate ready to be trained and molded into your perfect pup!  I will probably be good with kids and cats since I am just a puppy but I have never lived with them officially. 

So what in the name of milkbones are you waiting for....fill out the application and send it to my adoption coordinator!  I am trying to wait patiently...wiggle...wiggle...wiggle!

Due to a puppy's need for attention and frequent bathroom excursions, we do not adopt puppies to homes where no one is home during the day. This means no 9-5ers, unless you commit to hiring a dog walker to come multiple times a day.

Like all puppies, Calvin will need to work on housetraining and will also need to go to obedience school to grow into a well-socialized dog!      

The adoption fee for this dog is $400, which includes the cost of routine vetting and transport from the shelter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Ali at!
