Roscoe - A824640

Meet Roscoe! This 7 year old was very fearful for his first few months in the shelter, but has come so far. He still takes time to warm up to new friends, but is always happy to play outside his kennel. Roscoe will chase after plushies all day long. He’s looking for a home with an experienced adopter familiar with earning the trust of nervous pup.

@vcanimalservices AMAZING PROGRESS – but Roscoe still needs an adopter after 6 months in shelter. This boy was once so fearful of dogs and people that he spent most of his time in a kennel covered with a blanket to reduce stress. Though he still needs time to warm up to new people, Roscoe is making more and more friends! He’s proving to be playful and loves toys. Though he has struggled with touch, he is even starting to warm up to belly rubs. ?? This plea is for a rescue group or patient individual with no children or pets. Someone who understands that Roscoe is not your average adoption candidate. Befriending Roscoe and building his confidence will be a project. He is a beautiful work-in-progress who needs someone prepared to take on the challenges and joys of helping him become his best self. ??
