Roscoe's Story...
Roscoe is a 2-3 year old male, whom we are thrilled to bring into CLR. When we saw his picture, we just melted. He has been fully vetted and fortunately, he is Heart Worm negative, so he is ready to be adopted. The shelter reported him to be just a wonderful dog who deserves a chance to find a family to provide him all the love and security he deserves. They specifically reached out to us because they felt he was such a special guy, and we couldn’t agree more.

Information from Transporter: Roscoe seemed to love getting hugs, but we had the impression this was something new for him. In general, it seems he may have been neglected and needs better nutrition for his coat to return to a better condition. We suspect he may have some allergies, but specifics have not been determined. He rode well in the car and did not move around without permission. He has not been leashed walked in the past, so will need training, but he is such a pleaser that it should not be too difficult. He is also aware of “going out” for potty breaks, but have not been in a situation to determine if he’s 100% housebroken. Obviously, he has the potential to be a fantastic family pet. And according to his transporter, “I think with some time and basic training, he will be an amazing companion for someone, such a sweetheart.” Again, Roscoe is a perfect example of why we believe so strongly in rescue. VOLUNTEER UPDATE: Roscoe is so ready to move on and learn more manners and how to focus better. He has a sweet disposition, but needs someone to devote some time to teach him house rules and most likely has not had very much experience walking with a leash. Like all the dogs, if no one has ever taught them proper manners, there is not way for them to achieve better behavior. The potential is definitely there- just some patience and consistency to help achieve the desired effects.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roscoe, a Cincinnati Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cincinnati breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
