From the Foster:

Roscoe is a sweet, easy little guy. The one thing to know is that while he loves being around his people and gives kisses and wags, he doesn’t like being touched and handled very much. He will happily sit right next to you and “snuggle” for a bit, but if you pet him in the wrong spot he’ll yap and bark. So if you’re looking for a dog who wants to be lavished with attention, Roscoe is not the dog for you.

We are working with Roscoe on his manners while his people are eating, as he’s quite vocal about wanting what we’re having. A verbal reminder “hush, this is not for you” usually does the trick.

Other than those two instances, Roscoe is a quiet, easy-going dog who likes to nap on the couch, is good on a leash, and seems to like everyone he meets. He has good energy for a senior, and easily and quickly accepted our dog as his roomie.

He’s a great dog for someone who wants a little company, but doesn’t mind an independent pal.
