Meet Rosco

Yesterday Jess drove down to Washington to pick up this gorgeous guy.
He is a 3 yr old purebred Beauceron whose family could no longer keep him. For a dog who had been put up for sale on Craigslist then taken into rescue for a few weeks then driven for 5 hours with strangers...he was amazingly calm when I met him. He is reportedly good with kids, cats and other dogs - Jess got a good catch :) He was just neutered a few days ago so I thought Abby would get all flirty with him. She started to when she met him but then seemed to realize something wasn't quite right and ignored him instead. Ryan was put off by the residual "I'm full of hormones and I'd like to deeply sniffff and lick you" and kept giving him the full flashy smile and growl. I'm sure it won't be long before they all love each other. Rosco is also really into toys and playing fetch and was showing already last night how he sits politely waiting for his toy to be thrown. Somebody did a good job raising this guy.

Jess is working on a new of the top choices is Ruckus. I think it suits him!

*blush* Oops, you were never supposed to join hug-a-bull forum! I did give you credit though, and did you see that one of the girls recognized your dogs? I forgot to tell you that :-)

I did see that! I was in one of her classes at school. Small world!
