Not everything in life comes easy. My name is Roscoe, and I am a testament to that fact. Life hasn’t been easy for me at all. I have spent most of my life on the streets in the East End of Houston. I had a few doggy pals, but I never had the opportunity to learn what loving a human feels like. Now that I’m off the streets and safe, I’m happier but still very nervous around people. But please, don’t stop reading there. I know that I’m scared, but I want so badly to learn to trust. I just need that one constant, steady companion who won’t give up on me. I need patience and time, but mostly I just need love and security, something that my life has been totally lacking up until this point. Sure, it’s tempting to take the easy road and adopt a more outgoing dog, but with me, you’ll get so much more. The feeling of being loved by a dog that is learning what companionship feels like for the first time is indescribable. If you have the patience and compassion to allow me a life of happiness finally after all these years of waiting, you will never regret it.
I am low energy and get along great with other dogs, too. I am 4 years old and healthy as can be.
I am heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

Our fosters do something remarkable:
They take in a rescue animal who may have
never experienced love, care and security before
and help that pet get ready
for his or her forever home.
