Meet Roscoe! He is a 10-year-old red rough male, and weighs around 20 pounds. He came into a local shelter as a stray, and we believe he may have been hit by a car or suffered some other trauma. Luckily, he didn’t have any serious injuries.
Roscoe’s foster dad says he is a really good boy. He gets along with other dogs, both big and small. He is not fearful or aggressive with well-behaved children. He is very quiet, except his excessive snoring while asleep, but, hey – we all have our flaws! He prefers to sleep on his own bed, rather than in the big bed. He also doesn’t really seem to mind staying off the furniture. It took some time for Roscoe to begin trusting his foster dad, but when he did, he became a very loving little guy. His progress on that front has been really amazing! He is not very active, and likes to sleep a lot.
Roscoe is great about going outside to potty. He uses a doggy door at his foster home, and has not had any accidents! However, he may backslide a little in his new home, as is expected with most dogs.
Roscoe does have some health problems. He has a level 4 of 6 heart murmur. Even though he has heart issues, he was able to have a badly needed dental cleaning. He recovered like a champ! Roscoe is also slightly hard-of-hearing, and his vision is not great. He needs ongoing medication for his eyes. However, he is still able to get around fine. His adoptive home will need to be mindful of this, though.
Roscoe needs a home where he can live out his days in comfort.
Roscoe is being fostered in the Los Angeles, CA area.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Crystal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
