Pet of the Week


Breed: Rottweiler and Pitbull Mix
Age: 2 Years Old
Weight: 70lbs
Restrictions: No children under 12 (resource guarding). Needs an experienced owner.
Hi All, my name is Roscoe and I’m looking for a new home where I can get plenty of exercise and attention! I’m a very active young guy so I will need lots of activities to do such as long walks, going for runs and hikes, or playing ball. I am very smart and know all my basic commands. I do need a home with no children under the age of 12 because I can get mouthy and I also like to guard my food. I’m also a huge handful so a new family that has experience being patient with large, active breeds would be best. I have lived with dogs previously, but I don’t get along with all of them so I will need to meet any potential dogs prior to being adopted. I also may chase cats and will need to learn that they are not play things in a new home. I hope someone will scoop me up soon!
