Calvin is an adorable 4 year old Shih Tzu who survived a Missouri puppy mill and is now looking for a forever home of his own. He's a little guy, weighing about 8 pounds, and is a gorgeous liver and white color. Calvin is very friendly but a bit timid with people although he is making progress in that regard every day. In fact, he's showing a lot of interest in his foster mom now and asking to be held and to sit in her lap. Calvin loves the other dogs in his foster home and likes the cat in the home, too.
Calvin is working on housetraining in his foster home, and we are confident that with patience and routine, he will have no trouble finishing that training.

Are our dogs house-trained? Not at YOUR HOUSE. Most have begun housetraining in their foster homes; however, ALL dogs will have to be re-trained to some extent at their adoptive homes, due to a new sleeping and feeding routine. This not just for rescue dogs, ANY dog going to a new home will have to be re-trained at least to some extent!
