“It took over a month for us to get him healthy enough to go into a foster home,” Walsh said. “He was friendly and playful with everyone and we knew he would do well once he finally got out of medical boarding.”
Once Rascal was ready, Walsh brought him to a foster home that was very experienced in fostering sick dogs, and which already had four cats and dogs who could show him the ropes of life inside a home. By that point, Walsh said, he was thriving.
“When we first brought him in he had this big goofy head and a tiny little body,” Walsh said. “Then his body started catching up — and he seemed to have completely transformed into this handsome, social and healthy dog. He was doing great.”
