RASCAL (SRC#1602) is a well traveled Schnauzer/Sheepdog mix with a very laid back personality. He would have made a wonderful family dog because he is one that goes with the flow and just enjoys being with his family whatever they are doing. Mildly heart-worm positive when he came to us, SRC treated this senior to assure he has a great opportunity at that long happy life he deserves, now all he needed was a loving family who understands commitment! No more rejection for this handsome guy -- he cannot take another heartbreak especially since he deserves so much better. THIS DOG WAS PLACED ON HOLD FOR TWO - FOUR WEEKS PENDING EVALUATION AND BEFORE WE KNEW IT -- ALMOST TWO YEARS HAD PASSED AT HIS FOSTER HOME! This is probably the longest period of time this poor boy had ever spent at one place in his entire lifetime! So of course he considers this foster home his permanent home! RASCAL (SRC#1602) is an amazing dog! His personality is fantastic and he has yet to meet a stranger. Of course it is no wonder the way this captivating canine has traveled already. It simply is incredible that any canine should have already been in at least 2 shelters already with the mention of a third! NO poor animal should have suffered this way! He was housebroken which is changing as old age catches up with him, and also very easy-going, approximately 47 pounds and such a pleasure that everyone who meets him just is automatically his friend! Rascal loves to ride and is happy to just be part of the group. He is an older adult who definitely deserves a wonderful home and probably will make a great family dog. As he was fostered once the Heart-worm treatment was completed the bond between him and his foster parents grew. SRC loves him already and will see that he gets whatever he needs to be happy and healthy. What he really needs now is to stay exactly where he is because he truly has already adopted his foster parents and does not want another change in his life. We have committed to making him happy.
