**About Kalvin:**
Thank you for interested in adopting Kalvin. Please know that Kalvin is an international rescue through Taiwan. When your application is approved, you will need to pick him up from the airport – such as SFO, SEA, JFK, LAX, ONT, IAH, YVR etc. International adoption is not a complicated process and we‘ve done the process many years. We would be happy to explain to you how the process works.

Kalvin’s rescue story: 

Kalvin was abandoned in a shelter when he was about one month old. At that time, he was the only dog in the entire cage. There were no other dogs to accompany him, and his mother was not with him. He was covered in skin diseases, bald and without hair. The rescuer couldn’t bear to see him like this; so Kelvin was rescued from the shelter. The first priority was to cure his skin disease, and then help him to find a forever home. 

About Kalvin: 

Kalvin’s appearance looks rough, but his character is very gentle and nice. He never bites people and dogs. It takes him some time to explore a new environment and strangers. He will be bold and courageous if he has dogs to accompany him. Treats are helpful in getting him to know strangers more quickly. These treats and snacks are also helpful when strangers want to stay close to him or get him to listen best to their instructions. After getting familiar with a stranger, he will allow him/her to pat his chin or the sides of his body. Especially he enjoys so much having his back massaged vigorously. But if people try to pat his head, he would avoid that because he probably was abused before. He is very enthusiastic towards people that he knows very well and will even hug and kiss them. He looks masculine and fierce on the outside, but he is actually passionate, cautious, and gentle on the inside. Kalvin enjoys playing with other dogs, and he can be very confident when he is around them. He is a very good and gentle dog. He also loves running freely in the dog park. He deserves to have a forever home where he can be cherished and cared for! Please watch Kalvin’s videos to learn more about him.
