Facts about Roscoe

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix

  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: ps_81950016

Roscoe found himself in not so good of a place when his owner surrendered him to a shetler that can't hang onto dogs for very long.  He was surrendered because he nipped at the kids when they pulled his tail - well yeah - that is understandable.  Teach the kids respect not dump the dog.

He has to be introduced to other dogs slowly but once he trusts them he does amazing.   He loves his toys and plaing fetch.

He does not do well with cats.  He would probably be best with kids over the age of 10 so they will be a little more respectful.  He is about 18 months old.

He is housebroken, neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.  

He does not show well in his kennel - so to visit Roscoe you need to be willing to spend a little time with him to let him learn to trust you.
