LocationShelburne, VT

Roscoe is 6 years old (approx. DOB 1-23-14) but now that he is here we think he is much younger, male, 45 lbs., vetted, is or will be neutered, and micro-chipped. Roscoe is great with everyone! Cats, dogs, humans…………..a DNA test on this special boy would be so fun! We think he is absolutely precious! He has a unique look and so much character!

From his Vermont foster: “We’ve been calling him “Eddie”.  At first it was a silly nickname, because with his under-bite and long tongue and unique proportions, we thought he looked like Eddie, the hyena, from the Lion King 😊. He is a very sweet boy. And he tries very hard to be good (most of the time). He’s a tad stubborn sometimes, but responds if you hold eye contact. We don’t think there is anyway he is 6! He acts like a big clumsy puppy who hasn’t quite figured out how his body works. He is so funny. I wonder if they looked at his teeth. We would guess him to be between one and two. He can sit and is learning lie down, down, stay and come! And he is starting to respond to “Eddie”. He does not have an aggressive bone in his body and has no interest in the cats. He’s playful with Charlie and toys and we’ve been taking him on long walks and runs so he can get good exercise. And this is the best part… He SMILES. When he is happy he has a big open mouthed tongue out grin. He looks scary at first, because of his under-bite, but it becomes clear pretty quickly that he is a big lovable oaf. He doesn’t know boundaries yet, but we are working on it.”

Stay tuned for more information as Roscoe is a new rescue!
