PLEASE CONSIDER THIS SWEET BOY TO ADD YOUR HOME!!!
Roscoe is a very sweet and gentle older Treeing Walker hound around 7 years of age and weighing about 60 pounds. He has a very sad face, but that’s just the way he was born….with his sweet hound dog face!! He also has long soft luscious hound dog ears that are made for petting! He was found in rural MO. after being hit by a car. As a result of being hit, Roscoe had to have his back left hind leg amputated. He had his leg amputated shortly before coming into rescue in January, 2017 and has learned how to navigate without his leg very well. He walks well on a leash but short walks are best due to his amputation. Roscoe had to have some teeth extracted also, so he’s not really into nylabones or other chew toys.
Roscoe would prefer a quieter home. He is fine with children. He gets along with other dogs and cats. Roscoe is an independent, easy going fella, and he would be comfortable being the only dog but seems to enjoy being around his foster dog siblings. He will follow and bark at them while they play, so it may be good for him to have some other canines around to give him confidence. Roscoe’s favorite things are treats, lying in the sun, treats, head and neck rubs, treats, howling at sirens and more treats. I think Roscoe feels most comfortable outside as he was probably an outdoor dog, but he definitely loves to be inside to sleep at night or if it’s cold out.
Roscoe is potty trained but his foster home has a doggy door, so he would need time to establish a new routine if his new home does not have one. Roscoe loves his crate and feels very safe in it. He used to sleep in his crate every night, but is now venturing out and will sleep on a blanket in the living room. The door is open to the crate, and he has access to the rest of the house, but he feels comfortable there and will spend quite a bit of time in there. Roscoe is still very timid and learning that he can trust people. Over the six months he has been in foster care, he has connected well with his foster family and has come out of shell. He will need some time and patience to trust when he goes to his new home. Roscoe is definitely one of the sweetest and gentle hounds his foster family has ever fostered.
Roscoe can also be trusted to not be crated while left at home alone. He is not destructive and just relaxes.
Roscoe is current on vaccinations, been heartworm tested and tested negative and is on heartworm prevention. He is neutered and micro chipped.
