Rascal – ADOPTED!!

Posted Sep 8, 2013 at 3:31 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!  Let me introduce you to…. Rascal!  Approximately, 2 1/2 yrs old, 25lbs and 14” tall at the shoulder, he is a smart and handsome character.  He is completely housebroken and crate trained and LOVES toys.  In fact, he is a toy hog and wants anything someone else is playing with at all times.  He takes all the toys out of the basket every day to play and has them strewn about for when the moment strikes him.  He will bring toys to you to play tug o’ war and loves to play catch with the tennis ball, but fetching needs work since there is much competition among his foster fur siblings.  We are working on Frisbee now.  He is allowed to be loose indoors when no one is home or at night and has not been destructive to anything in the house.  Rascal will sleep at the foot of the bed quietly all night long but doesn’t seem to like to be under the covers as the others do.  He has taken to behavior corrections well and has truly blossomed in foster care.  Rascal will bark at all strangers and does have some fear anxiety around people he doesn’t know very well, however, he has a sense of children and fragile adults and treats them appropriately.  He has gotten compliments from visitors saying how much his greeting has been toned down.  He would be fine with children over age 5, but his playful attitude might be too much for a human toddler.  Rascal is living with several smaller rat terriers and two 70lb labra doodles who want nothing to do with him but he tries to get them to play constantly!  He is defensive among his fur siblings and will wrestle the 10lb alpha female of the house gently.  Rascal has a cute under bite which makes him look like a meanie, (or Elvis) and his soulful eyes look deeply into yours when he’s paying attention.  Rascal doesn’t dig to get out of the yard and has never tried to run out the front door.  He just wants to be by your side.  Rascal does well in a car, walks nicely on a leash, takes treats ever so gently and LOVES ice cubes!  After a long hard day of play, he settles down to let you know he’s tired and ready for bed, usually by 10pm and doesn’t want to wake too early… but by 8am or so, he is looking to go out to do his business. If you have an icemaker, an open heart and love the terrier ‘tude, then this dude is for you!  This winter is his second in foster care and all he wants for Christmas is a furever home of his own.  Rascal is UTD on all shots, neutered and on heartworm prevention.  Apply to adopt him today and he’ll pack up his toys to come home. Check back for more updates on his progress and album additions here.

    Rascal seems like he might be a good match and since I live near Mastic, I would like to visit to see him. If possible, please contact at the above email.My son and I will share responsibility of Rascal. I liked reading he was neutered, had a good temperament and was use to big dogs. Please contact me so we could make arrangements for a visit.
    Thank you very much.
