About Roscoe

Adoption Fee: $35
Border Collie / Lab
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Roscoe is a very sweet dog with lots of personality. We have had him since he was 12 weeks old and he has traveled all over with us. It breaks our hearts to have to look for a new home for him, but unfortunately he has not adapted well to a baby being in the home. After a year of trying everything we can think of, he is still very jealous and becomes very anxious/growly around her. Nothing has happened, but it is a very stressful situation that hasn't improved over time. Roscoe very much carries the Border Collie traits. He is very sweet, loyal, smart, and has lots of energy. He knows quite a few commands, does well off leash, and learns quickly; he is highly food motivated. He is used to getting out to exercise twice a day (walks, fetch, hikes, etc.). He is not a dog you can just take to the dog park and let run around or just stick in the back yard. He is smart and will get bored easily. I would recommend an experienced dog owner as border collies are energetic and have their quirks. In general, Roscoe keeps to himself when other dogs are around and likes to be left alone. He likes some dogs and doesn't like others and he makes that pretty easy to tell. He is not a fan of puppies or certain dog breeds (can be explained further if interested). He will let other dogs know if he doesn't want them in his space. He would do best in a single dog home (though not necessary as he gets along great with some dogs), without small children, and someone willing to meet his exercise needs. It is really hard to write this and think he will no longer be a part of our family as he has been for so long. We will want to meet in person for a greeting/screening with him and any other dogs. He has all needed supplies/toys/food.Roscoe is neutered and up to date on his shots, though he is due again soon.
