My story

Rosco is the type of guy that may seem unimpressed when you first meet him. He has "resting sad face" with sweet brown eyes and his shiny black velvet coat. Once you get to know him, you start seeing subtle signs of when he's happy. Like when his ears perk up when he sees his favorite people. He's an excellent walking partner and is the ultimate car rider - he hops right in and will sleep like a baby. Sometimes you can even hear him snoring! Rosco has been in 2 foster homes where we have learned a lot about him. He is house trained! He is cuddly when he trusts you, but we recommend taking that slow as he can be sensitive being touched in certain places. Rosco has some resource guarding tendencies; which means he can be protective over things he loves. This means food, and even furniture. Rosco will need a dog savvy owner who will be patient, give him a routine, and teach him that he doesn't need to guard things, because of this we do think Rosco would be happiest having his family o himself. He is a sweet boy who will repay your patience with unconditional love and devotion.

More about this shelter

We serve the pets and people in Northern Illinois and Southeastern Wisconsin. Our mission is clear: To take responsibility for each and every orphaned, abandoned, abused or neglected dog and cat which reaches our doors; to take them in and shelter them; to provide the best medical and physical care possible for them; to nurture them back to health if need be; and finally to place them into warm, loving, adoptive homes where they can enjoy the lives they deserve.
