Roscoe generally walks well on leash. His back legs are sensitive/ some pain and he will growl, occasionally, if his back legs are rubbed . He is more comfortable with females, warms slowly to males and is wary of unknown males approaching on walks and may vocalize his displeasure. He loves chewing bones, chasing squirrels and laying on the couch. Because of his sensitive back legs, Roscoe needs an adult only home (or dog-savvy older children). He seems interested in other dogs but has a hard time coping with excitement, just needs a little work.
Roscoe is a fun-loving, older male dog, about 15 years old, but with the heart of a puppy. He loves getting his booty rubs and going for walks. He follows basic commands including wait, come, sit, lay down, and stop. His foster mom is working on having him respond to “look at me” on walks, as a replacement behavior instead of barking at other dogs.
Roscoe could probably live with another mellow dog. We think a cat-free home would be the best for Mr. Roscoe.
