"Youngsters of the age of two and three are endowed with extraordinary strength. They can lift a dog twice their own weight and dump him into the bathtub." - Erma Bombeck - OR.... they could just have a dog like Roso who will happily invite himself in. A dog who loves the bathtub...who knew?

Roso is an 18 month old tri colored medium length coat Brittany Spaniel/Collie mix weighing 35 pounds, and should fill in to about 40 or 45 pounds, once foster mom gets some more meat on his bones. He's a happy friendly kind of guy who really just enjoys life. We don't know what misadventure or misfortune bestowed our happy fella, landing him smack dab in the middle of a really full shelter. But there he was, just hanging out waiting to get sprung from his cell. Fortune smiled on Roso and his foster mom bailed him out.

Life with Roso has been a hoot from day one. He loves doing what most youngsters love doing, running around playing, entertaining his people as well as himself. He's good about minding his manners below the counter doing what good boys do by playing and chewing on the toys he is supposed to. His curiosity does get the better of him sometimes and.... well he can be a bit of a counter thief (hmmm thief? jail? nah). Needless to say, if he can reach it he may steal it so he's learning boundaries and foster mom is learning to put things away, it's a win win in our eyes.

Roso plays very well with others, both the 2 legged and 4 legged varieties (he doesn't really pay attention to cats). He is, we are happy to report, already house trained. Now about the tub. It's the darnedest thing! He literally loves to jump in the tub empty or full he's a tub guy. He could very well be a reincarnation of rubber ducky but that's a different story. He have a sneaking suspicion that he has quite an an affinity for water but the tub antics.....priceless!

Roso is already neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and current on preventatives. He's looking for a fun loving family who will see him for the delightful boy he is and embrace his silly antics. It's all about living, loving, and having fun for Roso. If you are ready and willing to open your heart and share your home (and tub) with our sweet silly boy then he's certainly ready to bring a smile to your face and laughter to your life.

PLEASE REMEMBER: The specific breed of any dog abandoned to shelter is the best guess by seasoned rescuers in accord with our veterinarians.

Unless otherwise indicated, all Double Dog Rescue dogs have received the following before being available for adoption:

Thorough veterinary examination

All routine annual vaccinations, including Rabies, DHLPP, Bordatella (kennel cough), Heartworm Test, Fecal Test, Deworming


All dogs are quarantined for two weeks outside of the shelter (puppies four weeks) to ensure they don't break with disease.

If any dog shows any signs of disease or ailment, DDR vets the dog until he or she has a clean bill of health to the best of our knowledge. This includes anything from being treated for Heartworm, Broken Leg, Cherry Eye, Torn ACL, Upper Respiratory etc.)

NOTE: Dogs who were treated for Heartworm can test positive up to 4-6 months after last treatment. All dogs are immediately put on Heartguard/Ivermectin following the treatment to kill the Heartworm larvae. All dogs should be re-tested after 4 months from the last Heartworm treatment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roso, a Pawling Brittany/Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Brittany/Collie for sale in Pawling, or seeking a Brittany/Collie dog from a breeder in Pawling.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pawling 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 Pawling 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 Brittany/Collie breeders who help with Brittany/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pawling paves the way for another one to be saved.
