Roscoe was a stray for several months. He was living with a bunch of cows in a pasture. He has made friends with all different animals and even had a horse friend at the shelter. He is a good watch dog. He squeaks when it's nonsense he's barking at and big dog barks when someone comes up. He's nervous on leash with new people. He likes to sneak around behind you and sniff before he let's you touch him. He was great at vet other than when they tried to grab him and put him on the scale he acted scared but has never shown any aggression. He seems to be more trusting of women.

Roscoe is very smart, sweet, and loving once he has chance to warm up. He loves to play with a ball or stuffed animal. He absolutely LOVES his nub (tail) scratched. He was fine with new people at my house coming in my yard. He will try to sit in your lap even though he doesn't quiet fit. He has been great with every animal! He never paid our ducks, chickens, cows or horses any attention. He likes a floor air conditioner vent and also likes to watch the toilet flush. He is great in the car but doesn't love baths. He is a sweet and funny guy who will make a great addition to any home.

Age:  2 years
Weight: 60 lbs.

About Last Hope K9 Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission at Last Hope K9 Rescue is to save every possible dog we can from being euthanized within high-volume kill shelters throughout the U.S.

As the literal “last hope” of nearly every animal we serve, we work tirelessly to place each one within a stable, loving environment that can act as either their forever home, or the gateway to their forever home. We also strive to ensure that all of our adoptions and foster placements are the optimal fit for everyone involved, including our dogs. This leads to our second goal: enriching human lives through canine companionship. To us, you can’t have one without the other.

Lastly, we promote animal welfare by lobbying important initiatives that both protect and give voice to the voiceless. By fostering an environment of collaboration with other organizations that share our goals, and working together instead of in competition, we find that we accomplish more.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We set up private meetings because all of our dogs are in foster homes. Please email to schedule a meeting with one of our dogs!
