We thought we had found Rosco's forever home several months ago, but that does not seem to be the case. His new family just returned him for housebreaking issues. Rosco was originally surrendered to the shelter when he was 8 years old. His previous family indicated that they did not have enough time to care for him. This sweet boy is just trying to figure out what is going on. He was in a home one minute, then in a shelter the next. Back in a home and back at the shelter again. Rosco is very friendly and loves to cuddle. We can't understand why we haven't found his perfect forever home. He loves playing with cats, and is kenneled with other small breed dogs. We would recommend a meet-n-greet with any future canine siblings to be sure that they will get along. Please keep in mind when considering to adopt a shelter animal that there may be some training required to get them used to their new environment, new schedule, and new life. Whenever there is a minor issue, such as housebreaking, there are many tips and tricks that can be done to help make this a seamless transition for the animal. Please reach out to AHS or trainer for guidance.
