Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Roscoe - Ontario's Gentle Giant

Postby GreddysAngel » Fri Jul 20, 2007 3:19 pm

Roscoe is a real "gentle giant" (well not that big, 60 odd lbs) but stunning dark and handsome good looks - he sort of reminds us of a black panther.

He is a mellow guy who loves people and ANY attention you will give him. He wags his tail almost non-stop and leans in to be petted. While he could use some basic obedience to help brush up on his manners he doesn't have any "bad habits" to speak of (okay, he pulls on his leash a bit but c'mon now!)

Roscoe would love a forever home, or even secure foster care as he is in a temporary spot and needs to be moved ASAP!

He is housetrained, VERY good about his crate and QUIET!!!! He doesn't fuss about anything and is a great "back seat driver" for car trips. He does alright with other dogs if introduced slowly and properly.

We could really use some help with this special guy. We took a leap of faith pulling him as he was going to be euthanized in a "not so proper" manner, and now the spot he had feel through . . .we don't regret saving his precious life one bit and just want to give him the time and love he deserves . . .can you help?!

Roscoe with his favorite toy -rabbit. He loves to cuddle it at night in his crate.

I am in Calgary , alta . I was planning to wait for a pibble until I moved after the summer . He is so much reminding me of my Rupe that passed this winter though that I must ask some questions of you . I have a female golden retriever and a boss cat . Is he alright with other animals ? I cannot help but feel that he reminds me of my rupe . Please pm me with anything you can regarding him .
thanks

Happy to report that Roscoe was away for a few days on a trial adoption and the couple has decided that they would like to have him as part of the family :)

The couple is moving shortly, so we are taking Roscoe back until they are settled - expect a few more pictures :)

Happy Adopted Day Roscoe - you big goof. Make us proud!!!
