At 13 years of age, firmly in the twilight of his life, a dog named Rascal was surrendered to a busy California animal shelter. Now Rascal, a Labrador retriever mix, is waiting to be noticed at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center.
Why was this handsome senior dog surrendered?
Rascal’s family surrendered him because they no longer wanted the responsibility of a pet. His family simply did not want him anymore, and now his life is danger because he is one of hundreds of unwanted pets waiting to be adopted or rescued.
Information about Rascal
United Hope for Animals has provided some information about Rascal:
Rascal charmed our volunteers with his happy, easy-going disposition. He savors human attention and is so glad just to sit by your side. He walks well on leash, seems to be housebroken, and is relaxed around other dogs. Rascal seems to have some arthritis in his back end and has a hernia. Given his age, it is unlikely the hernia needs any treatment, but his adopter should take him to the vet for a senior wellness exam to make sure he’s feeling his best. Rascal is a gentle, loving dog who will be a fantastic addition to any loving home.
