The day Roscoe came into GABR from a shelter was a life-saving moment for this sweet
boy. Rescued as a stray, 6 year old Roscoe had a dangerously high level of infestation of
parasites, was anemic, severely malnourished and infested with fleas. His vet said that she
had never seen a worse infestation of parasites in her many years of vetting. In addition,
his ears have irregular jagged edges from being severely bitten.
Surprisingly, he was heart worm negative! He is being treated for the parasites, and being
built up nutritionally so that he can safely have the neutering and dental he needs to get
ready for his adoptive home.
In spite of all his physical neglect and abuse, he has the sweetest, most loving personality
ever! With not an aggressive bone in his body, he gets along with other dogs and seeks
out their company. He'll sniff and then ignore the cat. He also loves and seeks out
attention from children, adults and even strangers. Roscoe loves to be cuddled and to sit in
His foster home is working on house training issues and it's coming along nicely. He has
been on his own for awhile and will need a fenced in yard with a companion dog, and would
love to have children who will understand he needs lots of belly and ear rubs.
He is simply adorable, and will soon be ready for his forever home. He won’t last long! To
know him is to love him!
