Some of us fall in love with certain breeds and stick to that beloved breed when adopting, which is how Roscoe lucked out finding his new dad!
A perfect match: Roscoe and Larry, his new dad
Adopting the same breed has the advantage of knowing their characteristics so well. We “get” them. Who better to understand border collie/black lab mix Roscoe than new dad Larry, who’s had two previous border collies?
We’re happy that Roscoe has been adopted into an ideal home — a farm like Amy knew would suit high-energy Roscoe best, with a new dad experienced with border collies. This is what we strive for, to match each dog with the most suitable family and home.
Roscoe is five years old with an incredible amount of energy who likes to keep busy and needs a lot of daily exercise.
In foster care with BCFS he’s impressed us with agility, fly ball, barn hunting, hiking, camping and swimming, and with his bravery!
Burning all that abundant energy off during the day lets Roscoe relax so he’s a good sleeper at night, with the bonus of being crate-trained.
Even super-active dogs need some downtime
Roscoe’s an obedient boy who’s had professional training by Scott Conway, and has amazing recall. This handsome boy is superb on a leash, which he’ll be kept on until he’s acclimated to his new home and knows his boundaries.
He’s such a great dog and we’re so pleased he’ll be a wonderful companion for Larry, after losing his last rescue border collie to cancer recently. We hope Roscoe’s affection and energetic presence bring his new dad joy for years to come.
Happy boy Roscoe on his way home with Larry
We knew Roscoe is a keeper and are thrilled he’s found his perfect forever home. Happy trails, Roscoe!
