Roscoe came into SNAFU Rescue after being purchased from a rehoming ad on craigslist in order to ensure he found the best home possible as his forever home! 


Roscoe has been a wonderful little foster dog, his foster family reports!  Initially, Roscoe was a little timid when he first came to his foster home but has since has made great improvement! He seems to be really settling in and adjusting more and more as time passes. He loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home and they play for hours! The only thing that stops him is if he sees that a lap has become available. He loves to snuggle as hard as he plays! He is young so still has a lot of puppy ornery- ness that he's ready to share! He does well with children under supervision (he is very young and while he is usually gentle, he is still learning all appropriate social aspects of a pet home, so as with any dog, should always be supervised when he is around kids, to make sure he is kept safe). 


Roscoe is currently still working on potty training but has been doing amazingly well, aside from the occasional marking. He was recently neutered and the marking does seem to be slowly susiding with time. A regular and consistent schedule will help with him continued potty training in his new home. Patience, persistence and consistency MUST be given to him and will be the best tools for helping him succeed in his forever home. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training. He has also done great with crate training. He is learning to not whine while crated, but has been doing better with that as time passes. For his safety, we recommend that he keep a similar crating schedule when his humans are away from the home and/or he is left unsupervised so he is safe and secure while no one is home. He does not know danger and must be protected when his humans are not able to supervise him.


Medically, Roscoe is in good health. Roscoe has no other known health issues. He has been neutered, HW tested, has been updated on Vaccinations/dewormings, and has been given a clean bill of health by our veterinarian! 


Roscoe would do well in almost any type of home but since he is still working on potty training a house will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style  dwelling). He seems to do fine with stairs and we do not feel they would be an issue for him to manage. We also think he'd love to go work with his new family if they wanted to take him with them to the office. If not, he's completely happy sleeping the day away in his kennel as long as he has a nylabone or two to chew on and his people can arrange a mid day potty break for him!      


If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Roscoe please fill out an adoption application for him today!

NOTE: Please note that it may be at LEAST a 3-4 week *minimum* before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application.  We typically give a week for a "grace period" for new applications to come in on any newly available dog in order to give everyone a fair chance to submit an application.  After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc.  :-)  Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another.  We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete.   That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-) 

IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter.  In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)

ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply!  While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.  If, for any reason, and adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
