Roscoe Needs a New Home

Intake date: 1/6/18
Available for adoption: April 2018

Hello there Ė this is Roscoe checking in! Iím a happy and handsome 2-3 year old.

Life is good right now, but things started off pretty rough for me. Foster Mom and Dad donít know much about my background, and I donít like to talk about it, but they think I spent the first couple of years of my life living out-doors. No one bothered to train me, or show me how to live inside, so I was a bit of a wild man when I arrived at my foster home. With work I have gotten much better, and I know quite a few commands and am working on learning more (although when I get really excited I can get a bit forgetful Ė but donít we all?). And I love to learn - learning involves snacks and praise and those are two of my favorite things!

I get on well with the other dogs in the house and am very easy going, but people are my favorites Ė either large or small! There are no cats here, but when Iíve seen them Iíve gotten excited and tried to chase them, so a cat-free home might be best for everybody.

I am a bouncy energetic young guy, so Foster Mom and Dad think Iím going to need a home that can give me lots of exercise, and also some mental stimulation. I have quite a high prey drive and a strong pointing instinct and foster Dad thinks with training I would be an excellent hunting companion (and he says Iím not gun-shy). I recently completed heartworm treatment and Iím also neutered, current on vaccines, microchipped and crate-trained, so Iím the real deal! What do you think? Do I sound like the boy for you?
