Pending Adoption ROSCOE JONES's Story...
***** NEW KID ON THE BLOCK *****
Roscoe Jones here with a howdy-do and a nice to meet ya! I'm an 8 month old Boston with an abundance of energy (I said I was a puppy and a Boston didn't I?) and lacking a few manners (but I'm working hard on them)! In my old life, I spent a lot of time in a crate and didn't really learn the things I should. I'm going to need someone to take me by the paw and show me the ropes. I'm super affectionate and will love you so hard it'll hurt (and not because I think nipping is funny)! Here's more:
Age: 8 months old
Weight: 16 pounds
Demeanor: Active/high energy, very affectionate, very sweet, very social, curious, vocal at times (he's a good watch dog. Barks at noises he's not familiar with)
Likes: People (children over 6 years of age), dogs, playing fetch, giving kisses and snuggling, being held, going for car rides and walks, belly rubs, burrowing under blankets, sleeping in your bed, stuffed toys
Dislikes: Being left alone, being crated
Manners: Crate trained (but dislikes), nearly housebroken, leash trained
Fenced Yard Required: Yes. He loves to run in circles within his yard and won't do his business on leash.
Tidbits: Roscoe Jones was quite the handful when he arrived. Considering it appeared he had no training in any area combined with his age, it's no surprise. But he's already improved so much! Nearly 80% housebroken and mostly leash trained too! He will need continued assistance in the art of being a well-behaved dog. Someone who is home often would be a plus. Roscoe does not like to be left alone. He has a lot (I mean A LOT) of energy so engaging in walks, play and other activities will be important to Roscoe. He will need to be taught basic manners and that nipping hands and legs, even in play, is not okay. Luckily, he stops when told "no."
Roscoe Jones is an adorable boy who deserves the perfect home. His perfect home would be with a family (children over 6), maybe another dog or two and someone who is home more often than not. Oh, and that fenced yard!
