Meet Roscoe, the Chihuahua Mix, a resilient and loving canine who has come a long way in just a few short months.Background:On July 10th, Roscoe, previously known as Spot, found himself in a kennel, overwhelmed by fear and confusion. Despite the good people providing him with food and toys, he struggled to trust them.Foster Journey:On September 2nd, Roscoe embarked on a journey of transformation. He left the shelter and moved to a foster home, where a single, dedicated female caregiver focused on helping him feel safe and rebuild trust. During this time, he received a new name, Roscoe, which he now responds to.Progress and Adventures:Roscoe quickly adapted to a leash and found joy in going on walks.He relished being picked up, snuggled, and kissed, while also displaying his playful side through activities like playing with toys and doing "zoomies" around the house.In the past three weeks, Roscoe has thrived and shown his fun, playful, and quirky personality.He participated in the Paws on the Trail Walk event for Arnell Humane Society, demonstrating excellent behavior around people and other dogs.Roscoe made friends with other small male and female dogs.He met the neighbor and allowed her to pet him, as well as playfully interacted with her small female dog.Roscoe had an adventurous car ride to a coffee shop, initially trembling but quickly adapting to the environment without being bothered by typical coffee shop sounds.During this outing, he reunited with a friend from the shelter, ran up to her, accepted treats, and sat on her lap.Afterward, Roscoe had a meet and greet with a large male dog, showing reactivity initially, but with patience and training, he improved his behavior.Current Status:In the five weeks that Roscoe has been in foster care, he has blossomed and grown more comfortable. However, he is still working on house-training, although he has shown progress by holding his potty overnight and sometimes during the day while the foster is at work.Roscoe's journey is one of resilience, trust-building, and growth. He's ready to find a loving forever home where he can continue to thrive with the support and care of a dedicated owner.
