Rosco2Meet lovable, spirited Rosco! He is being fostered in FL. After reading Rosco’s biography and you meet ALL of his needs, please complete an adoption application on the SLR web site and enter ‘Rosco’ as the handsome, young boy you are interested in. If you have already had your interview, you will be able to speak with the foster mom to ask any other questions you may have.

Rosco3Rosco is 1 year old and weighs 14 lbs. He has natural ears and a docked tail. He is completely black with a beautiful, healthy coat. He is house, leash and crate trained but not a big fan of the latter. Of course he is neutered and up-to-date on all of his shots. Rosco enjoys riding in a car but loves to have a car seat that is high enough so that he can see out the window.

Rosco5When Rosco came into SLR, he was diagnosed with cataracts and diabetes. He had his successful eye surgery for his cataracts and it has literally opened up a whole new world for him. Now that he can see clearly, Rosco has become a thief – he will steal your sandals and socks (but does not chew them) and will take any chew/stuffed toy and claim it as his own. Rosco MUST have another dog to play with. He is very energetic (as he should be for his age) and will play, wrestle with the other dogs in the house and do speed runs until it is time for a nap. The more Rosco exercises, the less insulin he needs. 

Rosco4Rosco is given his insulin shots twice a day – 12 hrs. apart. They are administered soon after eating. He also must have a healthy, mid-day snack. He is on a prescription food. Someone in Rosco’s forever family needs to be home during the day to stay on the correct schedule. He needs a fenced-in-yard to run off his puppy energy and also just loves soaking up the warm FL sunshine. He does well with children 8 years and up. He is extremely lovable and cuddly.

If you meet ALL of Rosco’s needs ~ another playful dog, fenced-in yard, one family member home during the day to administer his insulin at the same time daily and a loving home that will enjoy watching him play and yet cuddle with you, then please complete an adoption application and enter Rosco as the handsome boy you are interested in providing a loving forever home to. If you have already completed an application, please e-mail for additional information.
