Calvin the Pointer mix, the Dog of the Day
Name: Calvin
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male Breed: Pointer mix
Home: Dallastown, Pennsylvania, USA
   Calvin was returned from at least three homes before he found his true family. No one at ARI could understand why Calvin couldn't find a home to call his own. He is calm, friendly, and polite. He had a difficult time with the last transition to the rescue environment, but little did he know that his forever home was right around the corner with a little brother who really needed him and his outgoing, friendly personality. Calvin was reluctant at first in his new home, but he soon realized that he would always have a place in bed with his parents, a secure hiding spot during thunderstorms, chicken in his dish every evening, fun car rides, long walks, and a warm spot in his favorite chair.

     He came when our rescue dog Tyler was at a loss after his big brother passed away unexpectedly. We knew he needed a buddy to keep him on track with his new-found courage and socialization skills, so searched for just the right friend, and that search led them to Calvin, who Tyler still looks to anytime there is a new situation or a stranger approaching them.

     Calvin checks out all the strangers first so that Tyler feels more comfortable greeting them. They are both well-behaved, funny, adorable, love to go on trips to the beach, take long walks, eat ice cream, and get belly scratches every day!
