Scott was a rescue dog we got while I still lived in England, and he was absolutely adorable. Full of energy, he wanted to play non-stop, was always wagging his tail and looking for cuddles and attention. We rescued a dalmatian because we heard good things about the breed, but due to his previous owner, he was a handful. He was very strong, and walking him was difficult, as he would practically drag you along with him (Definitely a 101 Dalmatians moment!). The real problem we had with him was with food. He was aggressive to members of the family when they had food in their hands, snapping and biting more than once, and he refused to eat any kind of dog food (We believe he had been fed on a diet of leftovers from his owners food). Unfortunately we had to return him to the rescue centre, where they told us it was unlikely he would be rehomed, and would probably be put to sleep, which was absolutely heartbreaking. He was lovely and affectionate, and he is missed terribly!
