Rascal did not fail the shelter temperament test…they didn’t even start with him. He tensed up upon starting and they felt it may be unsafe. He’d been turned in at age 2 after a rough start and mistreatment. He’s turned out to be an amazing dog with a great temperament and he was adopted by a family who absolutely adore him.
A side note on the photo. This was spontaneous; I was on my way inside from shooting two other rescue dogs, and passing through the store Rascal visits on Saturdays. I just grabbed a few snaps of him on my way in, just for kicks. Of the few dozen of the other dogs outside, I got a couple mediocre. Of the 4 I took of Rascal, I got 3 I liked, including this one. :)
Rascal is a 3 years old mixed breed, my guess is mainly border collie, English Shepherd or Australian Shepherd.
