Meet Roscoe! His foster mom calls him a "gentle cuddle monster. He is a big boy who still thinks he is a lap dog. He loves to snuggle and go on walks in the greenbelt. He doesn't quite understand toys but loves to play with people and dogs! Roscoe is a smart boy who knows basic commands and is motivated by treats (and cuddles). He is up for learning more!

Roscoe lives with two female dogs and a grumpy cat, but they all get along. They all free-roam together when their humans are away and do great. Although Roscoe doesn't live with kids, he has been gentle with those who've visited his foster home.

Roscoe isn't a fan of loud noises and can be a bit of a scaredy cat, I mean dog! But with a little reassurance, Roscoe does just fine. He has opened up a lot since being in his foster home. He has lots of love to give, he likes giving hugs and embraces affection!
Come meet your new best friend
