Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
A volunteer writes: Roscoe might be a little wary around new people, but give him a moment or two to warm up and there's no denying this old man is a GEM! Despite hitting the double digits, he's still full of spunk: he pulls on leash and bounds after tennis balls like a youngster. He is very treat-motivated and seems very housebroken. His previous owner tells us he is well behaved when left alone, liked to follow his people around the house, and was relaxed and respectful around the other resident dogs (his mom and sister). Although he can be a little anxious in the shelter environment (this isn't where he belongs, after all!) it's clear that Roscoe has SO much love to give. He head butts my hands for attention (like a cat!), initiates lap-time (and seems very comforted by it), and in general is very attentive. Whenever I take him out, I get the sense that he is of course happy to relieve himself and expend some energy, but most of all, happy to be doing something together! He would love to welcome you home from work, let you make him steak on the weekends, and be your best friend...come check him out at Brooklyn ACC!
