Hi there, my name is Roscoe and if you don’t mind me hijacking your screen, then I would like to tell you a bit more about myself. I originally come for a township where the family who were looking after me, couldnt anymore and I had nowhere to go. So somebody called somebody who knew somebody at Dogtown and before you could say “ROSCOE” I was safe at Dogtown. Now all I need is a forever family who can love me and take me home with them!

So I have this interesting / complex personality in that sometimes I am super friendly and puppy-ish and I like to bounce around and be around people, and in the same breath sometimes I am really a bit grumpy and prefer my own company. I think many humans are like that, come to think of it. This has been the problem with me finding a forever family 🙁

All I would need is a dog-savvy family who will give me what I need, when I need it. I am very good at letting my humans know what mood I am in so as long as we can communicate, I will be a happy boy and I think in a home environment my “mood-changes” might even disappear all together. All I need is somebody who is willing to get to know me and give me a chance.

I think its safe to say a home with older kids would be best. I am a pretty social dog so I dont mind having a doggy sibling or 2. I am just not sure of cats…

Please give me a chance, I want to be the dog I know I can be, I just need somebody who is willing to give me what I need. Could that be you?
