Roscoe Square

Want to start off the new year with an energetic, fun loving boy?  I was turned into a shelter because I had too much energy.  Well, that’s what us 1 year old boys are full of – energy!  Training and exercise are great cures for a silly boy like me.

I have come a long way while in foster care.  My foster dad took me to this fun place where I got to learn all kinds of new things.  He called it training.  Class was a challenge because there were too many fun things to smell and see.  But, at home, I am really learning my manners.  I am mellow and well behaved but I still need some work when people come to visit.  I am just so excited that I can’t help myself and I jump to get a little closer to greet my new friends.  I am just such a happy boy and love everyone that I meet, but I settle down quickly.

I love playing with all of my toys, but my favorite is my tennis ball.  I also love going with foster dad for car rides.  I like adventures.  Another one of my favorite activities is running around outside in the yard.  I don’t get bothered by the cold weather at all.  When it comes time to settle down, I am ready to snuggle up next to you on the couch for a good belly rub.  I am also good in my crate.  Sometimes I go in there all by myself to sleep.

I am a friendly and sweet boy, but still need some work to tame the youngster inside of me.  I would love to go to training with you so we can learn fun things together.  Will you be my lucky forever family?
