ROSCO - HOLD's Story...
This beautiful boy had arrived on Sept. 15th. Upon arrival Rosco weighed in at 32 pounds. He is 1 year, 11 months old. Roscoe was well behaved in his crate on the ride home. When he arrived home he was greeted by the foster's two female dogs. They immediately got along nicely. He has been very quiet and well mannered in the house. He is content to sit right next to people or by the glass door so he can look outside. He loves to look outside and loves to be outside. He is extremely gentle when accepting treats and sat nicely to be brushed. Roscoe slept quietly in his crate through the night. He was wonderful on the leash as he went for a nice long walk this morning. All this and very cute too. As we get to know this sweet one better, we will update the description. UPDATE: Roscoe continues to be well behaved in the house. He is calm and quiet when crated or left in a gated off room. He seems to be housebroken-no accidents. He is happy to see his leash because he loves being outside and going for walks. We have started basic obedience. He will catch on quickly as he is eager to please and food motivated. Roscoe had a bath, and although he didn't love it, he did tolerate it well. UPDATE: What a great dog! After his initial adjustment period, Roscoe has settled in very nicely. He gets along beautifully with the other dogs in the home. This is amazing because one dog is calm and submissive while the other is insecure and high energy-he is able to get along with both. Roscoe is playful with toys and a willing playmate. He is equally happy snuggling with humans and content to be alone to look out the door/window. He is definitely housebroken and learning new expectations quickly. UPDATE: We exposed Rosco to a cat at a friends home and at the vet's office. The cats did not react to him and he did not react either. Please note, we do not know how he would do full time with a cat. He seems so easy to correct and adjust. UPDATE: This dog is SOOO good and easy. He eats well, sleeps well, walks nicely, and gets along with everybody. Today he went to the vet for a check up. He sat nicely in the front seat of the car. Everyone at the office commented on how cute he is. He was nice and calm even when the other dogs there were barking like crazy. The staff was impressed with how good he was during his exam. When we got home he let me clean his ears. He also has a fun side. He is playing more as he becomes comfortable with his surroundings. When invited, he will jump on the couch for a belly rub or to snuggle. Obedience training is going well. He is making good progress with sit, give paw, and come. He does not go out of open doors until invited to do so. UPDATE: Roscoe continues to impress! His wonderful behavior has earned free roam of the house when we are home. He has not disappionted. Not a single accident or any type of negative behavior. He peacefully coexists with the other dogs. He likes to run around and wrestle with my younger dog. He likes to be with people and snuggle. When he wants some quiet time he will go into his crate which has a nice soft bed in it. He sleeps in his crate 8 hours at night and waits quietly to be let out in the morning. UPDATE: Roscoe spent a nice weekend in the country. He did great on the 2 hour car trip-sitting quietly or napping.He adjusted quickly to his surroundings and continued his wonderful in home behavior. He calmly watched the deer and turkeys from the window. He slept out of his crate in his dog bed. He walked nicely on the leash. Even though there were many new great scents to take in he did not get overexcited. He got a bath outside which he did not seem to mind at all. The only thing that he did not like was the riding mower which he initially barked at. If you are interested in seeing additional photos, please friend Sheryl's Den on Facebook.
