Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Poodle (Standard) / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 54 lbs - he could easily gain another 10 lbs and would be more solid
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 10/23/2020
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Roscoe was abandoned when his owner moved and forgot to take him with him
Special Needs: We were told Roscoe is a labradoodle. He doesn't look like your traditional labradoodle, but is definitely some sort of doodle. Roscoe does shed.
What kind of home would be best for me: Roscoe is a large young dog who's had very little in terms of socialization and training. He spent way too much time in a crate and is looking for a home with lots of space and energy where he can run and play. Roscoe wants to be with people. He's been left alone way too much. His ideal home is with a younger, active couple that is home during the day (work from home, early retirees). He needs lots of physical activity and plenty of mental stimulation. Roscoe is not well suited for a home with children under 12. He needs space to come to you and doesn't like people to just approach him. Roscoe is not hypoallergenic. He does shed.
What is my personality like: Roscoe is a very sweet dog with a lot to give to his forever family! He arrived in rescue after being abandoned by his former owners who kept him in a crate almost all the time. The person who found him knew he needed more than she could offer and reached out to rescue for help. Roscoe can be a bit head shy and nervous when he first meets you, but give him time to approach you and you'll have a full tail wag and a big happy boy. He will bond hard to his family and will want to be by their side like Velcro.
Roscoe does good with just about everything. He likes to play with other dogs and he has been around dogs big and small - and he really prefers small dogs as his buddies. He mainly wants to play with people. Roscoe is a fairly well mannered dog but could use work in some aspects of mannerism such as not jumping up to get his food. He likes to try and go toward things that interest him… mainly other people…. And can pull on a leash in those scenarios (this is an easy fix that even just using the right harness can help manage). He is clean in his crate and will usually go in a crate on cue, but if there is another dog out that he wants to play with he will vocalize his wants. He also seems to like blankets better than beds. Roscoe knows basic commands.
Roscoe is a true companion in the sense that he really just wants to interact and spend time with his people. He wants to enjoy going on walks, runs, hikes, and other adventures with his family. Roscoe is looking for an active home that can give him the attention he deserves!
How do I act when I first meet new people: A little timid, but friendly
Tips and Tidbits: We were told that Roscoe was one year old when he was surrendered to rescue. We don't have much history other than that. We celebrate his birthday as 10/23/2020.
An interesting note - Roscoe seems to take a long time to warm up to thin women. With those of us more in the normal or full figured group, he's loving and sweet.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
