Meet Rosko

You may recall us posting Rosko's story a short time ago. Rosko’s story is what rescuing is all about...

Rosko was found by a good samaritan in a completely neglected state. Rosko was living in his own feces and urine and had not seen the outdoors in years. Home for Good Dog Rescue didn't hesitate for a moment when they received the call. In no time at all, he was in the care of the loving HFG staff. Upon intake it was immediately evident Rosko had not received a bath in years, he reeked of smoke and his nails were overgrown, curling into his paw pads. Rosko was also suffering from a double ear infection as well as skin infections all over his body. And because of his confinement to the house and poor diet, Rosko came in over 20 pounds overweight.

Rosko was welcomed with open arms by HFG, receiving the VIP treatment he so deserved. Despite all the neglect he suffered, Rosko is the kindest, most loyal and forgiving dog. This gentle soul absolutely adores everyone he meets. He is a one- dog welcome wagon, smiling and tail wagging, greeting anyone and everyone. Rosko also adores attention. He is quick to snuggle up next to you for some back scratches or to roll over for some well-deserved belly rubs.

Rosko will seamlessly fit into any home. This sweet boy is calm and quiet in the home. He loves lounging on his dog bed for snoozes and snuggling on the couch with his people. Rosko also enjoys romping around a fenced-in yard with his canine friends or going for long walks on the leash. Bonuses: Rosko is housebroken, he sleeps through the night without making a peep, walks beautifully on the leash, and enjoys riding in the car. He is the perfect adventure partner!

Rosko has truly been given a second chance and now he cannot wait to find his forever home where he will be showered with all the love and attention he so truly deserves.

Rosko is a 5-year-old Chocolate Lab/Terrier mix and is AVAILABLE for adoption. He currently weighs 73 pounds but has plenty of weight to lose. Apply to adopt this sweet, loyal, and forgiving boy by visiting! ???

Rosko is neutered, up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, and microchipped.
