With a name like Scallywag, mischief is expected. However, this cutie is more about fun and games.

Ten years old and still a spry fellow, Scallywag came to ARK in March when his former owner was diagnosed with dementia. Now in Tokyo, Scallywag was seriously underweight after he stopped eating because he missed his owner. This dog can't help but love people, though, and with time he started to perk up.

“Wag,” as he is affectionately called, has been gaining weight with proper care and recently hit 11 kilograms, which is perfect for an apartment but a house in the country would also be most welcome.
