Breeds: Pit Bull Terrier, Crossbreed
This handsome senior is Roscoe. He is one of a few dogs that has resided with one of our southern trainers, Desiree, for quite some time. Despite having some issues that make him a bit less adoptable, this guy still deserve a home where he is loved and his needs can be met. And having a trainer as a foster mom is a huge plus!!!
Roscoe is a very special to her. He was found weighing 38 lbs (about half of what he should have weighed) and needed assistance walking due to his body condition. He also had heavy heartworm, but has shown zero complications after treatment. After months and months of TLC, he is now a confident, outgoing, loving, playful (you wouldn’t know he was a senior) boy.
He’s great with all people, but would get under foot with children. In all his years he has yet to realize he should bounce less around the small two legged. As big and goofy as he is, he’s actually pretty sensitive, god forbid he stubs his toe!) When you reach down to pet him, he’ll tuck himself into this tiny little ball like you’re murdering him- but that’s just how he prefers to be scratched. Typical BBM zoomies included at no extra charge- yep all 4 left feet of em.
He likes to play ball and tug, great in the car, fine in the crate, would need supervision early on in a new environment to prevent marking. He’s not been destructive with toys, but will chew out of boredom. However, he takes very well to correction (NO!) and understands quickly.
Roscoe would be just fine as an only dog, as long as you give him lots of love and some exercise he will be your best friend.
