Hey guys! My name is Roscoe and I am a 5 year old, male Chi-Terrier mix, and all neutered already. I am about 17 lbs, but they say I need to go on a diet and workout schedule. Hmmphh! I was relinquished by my owner to actually give me a better life away from my two doggie siblings who were bullying me. I am completely bathroom trained and have excellent leash manners! I still have some anxiety, but we are working on it.

My foster family loves to call me Roscoe the Rascal, because I am such a fun-loving boy! Even though my doggie siblings bullied me, I am very friendly and enjoy running around dog parks making new pals. I like walks and jogs, but can chill at home with cuddles. I do love every new person I meet. I am just a lil shadow following my people. I am fiercely loyal and protective and have protected my family from many mail-people, delivery people, strangers who surely mean murder. Just kidding! I do have anxiety and do great around calm, easy going people and all dogs. I would do best in an adults-only home, but respectful teens would be fine.

I cannot wait to go to my furever home where I can settle down finally and shed all my anxiety. I have so much love in my heart just waiting to be shared. I will be a great walking, hiking buddy once my leash training is sorted. Another good dog will help me build confidence, but if I have to be an only dog, I can have playdates and be cool. I would love an active all-adults family and lots of attention. If you think we are meant to be, let’s meet up!

My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
