Rascal is a doll! There is nothing nine years old about this strong and muscular Springer boy. And, he is definitely ALL BOY!
Rascal's elderly dad passed away quite a few months ago. They were inseparable. Tragically, Rascal spent three days in the house with his owner after he died, as no one was aware. One can only imagine how absolutely devastating this was to Rascal and it has taken him quite a bit of time to recover from it.
He's been very well loved and cared for. He was taken in by a wonderful family member with the intent to stay forever. But the family was told that with Rascal they were over the city limit as to the number of dogs allowed. That's when they reached out to ESRA. They've entrusted us to find him an excellent loving and caring home for this sweet, loving Springer.
Rascal can be timid initially, but it doesn't take long for him to warm up. So, it might take a bit of time and patience for him to settle into his new Forever Home. He's a Velcro guy -- you know, one of those you have to step over to get out of the shower! He's housetrained and does fine left out and about when left alone. Having said that, he would be happiest with someone home with him much of the day as that's what he's been accustomed to. Rascal has lived as the "only child" in the home most of his life. He would do fine as an only dog but would also very much enjoy a submissive four-legged buddy. He's in great shape, needs room to run and a regular walking or jogging buddy. Rascal has recently been living with young children and is very comfortable with them.
He's in very good health. He needs to lose five to seven pounds to be at his ideal weight. He is on a very inexpensive thyroid medication that is taken twice daily. He tested negative for heartworms, he's neutered and current on all of shots.
Rascal is so ready to start his new life. Please reach out to his Case Manager if you have already fallen for this very handsome and charming gentleman.
