Introducing Roscoe

You caught us! Yes, our walk contained five fluffy tails, so our secret is out. We take great pride in introducing Roscoe to you.

Introducing Roscoe!

Introducing Roscoe! (And, yes, that right eye is a parti-eye.)

After losing our two senior members a mere twelve days apart, we had a long debate here at Chez Herd about what to do next. If we added, we needed someone who could fit in easily with the current pack dynamics, including a fussy Little Prince.

Yes, now you have seen both sides.

Yes, now you have seen both sides.

We went back to our friends at Southern Siberian Rescue, the same place that guided Landon to us. Roscoe has been with them for several months after being surrendered to an animal shelter. We know virtually nothing about his past life and suspect that he got into the system simply for being an exuberant teenager. He’s probably now roughly 3 years old, beyond that crazy teenage stage but still young and energetic.

He has met everyone and is slowly earning privileges around the house while going on lots of walks to burn energy. The most interesting thing to watch has been a budding friendship from an unlikely pair.

    I and my tribe would like to extend our joy to the hu-mans for the love of their new member Roscoe. I would like to remind him that is is covered by the current doguments in place with the Sibe Tribe and will be able to avail himself of full representation should the need arise.

    Word, not work.

  15. Marty on November 20, 2018 at 10:51 am

    I am looking for the right work. He looks regal. Like when you look at a male lion. Very studly. I am glad you brought him home. I look forward to his happiness returning. He looks sad. But he has the perfect home to bring light to his life. Thank you.

  16. Juno's mom on November 20, 2018 at 10:44 am

    After reading his bio on Southern Siberian, it looks like he’ll be a great fit. And he’s a New Leash on Life graduate. Great program! It’ll be interesting to see how he and Typhoon’s relationship evolve.

  17. Carolyn on November 20, 2018 at 10:41 am

    Really wasn’t sure you would add more – 4 is a handful when all are young! (Yes Ms. Cheoah, you are Forever Young). This is great that Rosco and Ty have paired up. So cool! Roscoe seems pretty regal. Pics deceiving? 🙂
