SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Meet Mass Appeal’s pet of the week!

Name: Rascal
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
Age:  2 Years Old
Sex: Male
Color: Brown and White

About Rascal:
This ‘Lil Rascal is looking for his gang! Wanted: an active family who likes to run and play, go on adventure hikes, and explore the great outdoors. Rascal didn’t get a lot of training in his previous home but the staff says he is wicked smart and loves to learn. He would excel in doggie school and his adoption fee includes a discount on Dakin training classes held in Springfield, Hadley, or Leverett. He especially enjoys chasing tennis balls and has been learning how to drop them nicely when asked. He would be a star in any type of doggy sport such as agility or maybe even flyball. If you’d like to know more about our ‘Lil Rascal, ask any staff person, or better yet, come on down and meet him in person!

Dakin’s dog training classes are family friendly and kids are welcomed and encouraged to participate. We offer classes weekday evenings and weekend mornings, from beginner to advanced level. Your dog can earn his or her Canine Life and Social Skills certificate. Class locations in Springfield, Hadley, or Leverett.
