Meet Roscoe! This big handsome boy is a gorgeous bluetick coonhound who is about 7 or 8 years old. He is about 75 pounds.
Note from his foster mom:
He is such a sweet boy, and very easy to integrate into the house. He loves hugs and cuddles, and will paw at me and even jump up on me if he's not getting the attention he wants.
He is calm in his crate – never makes a peep. He is smart too – he is quickly catching onto the rules and routines of the house. I make the dogs wait at the door before coming in and he is picking that up quickly. I am feeding him by hand and teaching him to look at me rather than at the food before he gets fed, and he learned that fast too. He also figured out how to open the lid on the dog food bin within 10 seconds.
He pulled a lot on walks at first, but walks much better now. He loves squirrels and his wonderful ears stand right out when he's catches sight of one. He makes a wonderful BAROO when he is excited about going on a walk or just happy to be outside.
He was obviously a house dog before, because he climbed up onto the sofa and onto the bed and lay down right away.
Roscoe seems more independent of other dogs (or is more secure) than Jackson is. Jackson always follows my dog Beez around, but Roscoe, so far, does his own thing and doesn't necessarily follow the other two dogs when they are out in the backyard. I could see Roscoe going to a home on his own. Roscoe is also good in his crate.
Roscoe also gets along with the cat!
