Rascal, a 9 1/2 year old (DOB 11/19/09) tri-colored Sheltie, was an owner relinquishment (along with Tanner) due to death of his owner. Rascal is UTD, neutered, weighs 30 pounds and is heartworm/fecal negative. Rascal is a friendly but somewhat shy Sheltie who loves people. He freely gives tail wags and loves meeting everyone, especially when they give head scratches. He is very obedient, knows sit and is crate trained and house trained. He loves to be in the kitchen with his foster dad when dinner is being prepared, and follows him around everywhere. He is a sweet boy and is learning to trust his foster family with all the changes he has been through. It is hard to resist those beautiful brown eyes! Rascal would do best as an only dog in a home with no small children. He is unsure in high energy situations and can react negatively.
Rascal came to HSS diagnosed with diabetes and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). He is currently on insulin injections given twice a day and pancreplus powder, a digestive aid and replacement therapy for the EPI. HSS is currently monitoring his blood glucose levels and adjusting his insulin units in order to get his glucose levels within normal ranges. Rascal is very good boy when given his insulin injections. He stands still and he makes it easy to administer the insulin shot.
Rascal would love a home where he is the one and only, and a family that would be dedicated to working with his medical needs. After losing the family that he has known since he was a puppy, he deserves to find a family that will love and accept him with his special needs. He will repay you with tail wags and perfect "SIT"s!
