Rascal is one of those dogs that immediately stole my heart when I saw him. His owners kept him in a crate all the time, and consequently, he was very scared of everyone and everything. He also was not housebroken.
Even though we already have a foster dog (Alize), I couldn't resist fostering Rascal, too. I knew that we have a home environment that he would thrive in. Once we got him home, he quickly got over his shyness and started approaching people with his tail wagging and giving puppy kisses. He is such a great dog! I am amazed that his owners surrendered him, rather than spending a little bit of time working with him. He has even done great on housetraining!
