Roscoe 3 yr old neutered male - IN
Now, Roscoe is a fun-loving, people-loving dog with bundles of energy!
Roscoe was picked up as a stray and was so ill it wasn't certain he would survive. He had respiratory, skin, and joint infections, and was thin & timid. After spending 6 weeks in a "medical foster home", he completely recovered with no long term affects, and he was sent to his current foster home in Indiana so he could start to blossom.
Now, Roscoe is a fun-loving, people-loving dog with bundles of energy! He plays quite well with the 3 medium-sized dogs in his foster home (1 male, 2 female). He loves children, but can be exuberant so small children might not be best. He has been around a small dog (Papillon) and was very excited at first, but was in play mode, not stalking or mean. He has not been around cats, but I would expect him to want to chase if they ran.
He is learning how to not chase or bite the vacuum and snow shovel or broom, but he sometimes will nip the vacuum/shovel/broom, so we are working on this. He is not an incessant barker but does a few warning barks when he hears something outside, or another dog barking. He is learning to let us touch his back feet but he seems very sensitive about it still.
He will steal anything (tube of toothpaste, boots, cotton ball, for example) and needs hard toys only as he will destroy soft dog toys and try to eat them. He is learning how to learn, and knows how to "sit" on command. Overall he is a very sweet dog, sensitive to voice corrections, and willing to please.....and by the way....GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
