All About Roscoe
Hello loves—my name is Roscoe! I’m a pretty happy, energetic doodle-“dood” who is 18 months old and weighs a fit 35-pounds. I’m a special boy looking for a special girl to be my companion and guide in life. As you can see, I’m very handsome, with one blue eye and one brown eye. They think that my blue eye attaches me to the herding breeds like Aussies or Old English Sheepdogs. That means I’m very loyal, highly alert to changes around me, and I might not be very welcoming to those outside my circle of family and close friends. I love water and if you mix that with a little dirt, I’m sure to have a good time! I am sweet, gentle, and “selective” with other dogs. I need a slow introduction before I can settle in with them. Once I’m acquainted, let the good times roll! I’m untested with cats. I am pretty good on a leash, but can pull when excited. I do know “sit”, “down” and “stay” and I am potty-trained and crate-trained (for short intervals). Oh! And, I don’t shed! That means grooming maintenance to keep in check!
What you need to know about me: I am lots of fun!! I need a fenced yard, because I love to play. Once I am inside the house, I am pretty chill. I have had complicated interactions with men in my past. No one is sure what happened in my life, but I get a little anxious around new people. I need to know that my person is "large and in charge". My favorite trainer says that I am like those Aussies….I like it when my person is strong and lets me know I’m always safe with her. The good news is, once I trust someone, I am affectionate and sweet. I would prefer that it was just me and trusted circle which probably shouldn’t include kids. My trust is earned with time and consistency. I’ve been taught that you are the boss, but you’re going to have to remind me from time to time. I look to you to keep me safe from the crazy world out there. Behind every rescued dog who is shown patience, understanding and gentle strength, is a person who earned their angel wings!
My ideal person is a woman/women who understands herding dog personality and knows how to continue to be my solid rock so that I can build trust. If she works from home is a bonus, because while I have manageable separation anxiety—your being with me means I can get the training I need to settle in, socialize and thrive. I am muzzle trained….are you? I do well with slow introductions on neutral grounds when meeting new people or dogs. As an alert dog, new meetings might be stressful until I know that I can be safe with you. You’re experienced, so you know all kinds of ways to help me achieve my greatest potential. Give one heart—get back two—that’s the paradox of “I love you!”
