My name is Rosco. I was rescued from the Bandera County Pound several years ago. The inmates took care of me at the old facility. They played with me and taught me to be a good boy. When they got full, they called AD4Y Rescue and asked them to save me and here I am.

You see I don't like change too much. I became very withdrawn when I left my friends at the jail. I had alot more room to run and play and frankly I did everything I could to stay away from the girls. I trusted Ms. Pat, but no one else was going to touch this bad boy. But they wouldn't give up.

Over the last 30 days they have been telling me they are going to get me adopted one way or the other. They told me I have to start being a good boy with strangers and letting new people meet me. I wasn't going to do it, but Ms. Pat made me play with Ms. Kim. Did you know she keeps yummy stuff in her pocket? I tried to resist, but did I mention it was yummy?

The next thing you know Ms. Kim was taking me on walks and introducing me to new things. You know what? Change really isn't all that bad. I have to admit I love the attention. I am still a little skittish of new people but I am learning to trust people. I even went to the beauty shop and had them cut my hair. It's normally a lot longer.

I love to go on walks, it is truly my favorite thing or is it’s a toss up. I even walk off leash at the ranch!  When I warm up to you I am just a big love bug. I give Ms. Kim kisses all the time. I like to chase a ball but I am getting older so I usually just chew on it when I catch it.  I have lived in a kennel now for awhile so I would need to be house trained again, but I am sure I can catch on fast, because I am super smart. I am doing great around other dogs too. I know that I can finally trust. I need to lose a little weight. I am slowing down but a nice orthopedic bed by you would be awesome.  So iff you have lots of time and patience to help me adjust I will be your best friend for life! 

If you would like to apply for me please go to and fill out a Companion Pet Application. If you want to help sponsor me, you can donate here. Your donations make sure other dogs like me have a chance at a new life, even if we are slow to adapt.
