This handsome boy is Calvin.  He is approximately 9 years old. With that alert look and sparkle in his eye, would you believe he is blind?  Most people that meet him for the first time don't even recognize that he is blind because Calvin's blindness doesn't stop him from enjoying life.

Calvin was surrendered by his family after he went blind and they were not prepared to cope with a blind dog.  His blindness was most likely the result of SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome) a disease in dogs causing sudden blindness.

But poor Calvin was also dealt another bad card that his previous owner probably did not address or recognize.  He also has a condition called Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) which is the inability to properly digest food due to a lack of digestive enzymes made by the pancreas. He was very thin and basically starving to death when he arrived in Arizona.   Now with a special enzyme mixed in his food twice a day, he is thriving and almost getting FAT!  This enzyme is ordered from an on-line company and reasonably priced.

Calvin is one special boy and deserves someone that recognizes just how special is really is.  He is very loving, likes belly rubs and enjoys sitting in "his" chair on the front porch "watching" the neighborhood.

If you would like to know more about Calvin or may be interested in adopting him, please contact Robin at britrescueaz@cox.net. Our adoption process includes an application, interview, home visit and vet check.  His adoption donation is $200.  Any person aged 60 years or over may adopt a senior dog  (8 yrs or older) for $100.   

Calvin's not the dog for you?  That's OK, we understand.  But you can still help give him a great life.  Contributions for Calvin's care can be made via our website www.nbran.org.  Please designate that your donation is specifically for AZ-Calvin.
