Rosco is a male, four-year old mixed breed dog. We believe he’s a mix of Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Shepard and Bull Mastiff. He has a medium-sized sturdy physic and is in need of some love.
Rosco was found wandering the streets and after his rescuers took one look at him they knew he was coming home. Rosco was fostered for about a year and was never claimed. He is a lover and quickly adapted to being in a home, including sleeping in bed and desiring constant affection. When the foster family was ready to welcome their first child into the home Rosco didn’t seem thrilled with the idea of sharing his parents.
Rosco has been living at Camp for about 3 months, we don’t know anything about his history before he was found wandering the streets but he is vaccinated, neutered and micro-chipped.
What Rosco Needs
Rosco would be the ideal dog for a family with no small children or other dogs. His past has left him hungry for human affection and he would do best as the center of attention, at least until he has re-adjusted to a domesticated life style. Rosco is comfy in his cabin with his toys from home but he misses the one-on-one attention of a family. He is looking for an owner who isn’t afraid to establish dominance and has a lot of time to spend with him. Rosco enjoys being outside but has been known to clear a 5′ fence without any effort and can be leash reactive. A home with a lot of open outdoor space would be ideal.
The more Campers that the summer brings, the more withdrawn Rosco becomes. He is extremely loyal and protective and is looking for a new home with a new family to love and cherish. If you think you could handle this hunk-a-hunk-a burning love as a temporary Foster or a “Fur-ever” family, contact the Detroit Dog Rescue to fill out an application. Consider yourself warned, once you see those eyes in person you’ll be sunk. I once asked Rosco if he was wearing color contacts and he assured me that was his natural eye color. Eat your heart out ladies!
