My name is Roscoe! I am a 1.5 year old puppy with a tail. I came to BRBR via a shelter in NC.
I am currently living with my foster family in Raleigh, NC. They are really nice people. My foster family really loves me. They constantly remark how cute I am and it’s hard to be mad at me. I share my house with two skin teenagers and two 7 yr old boxers Potter and Lucy. I love them both and they play with me. They have mentored me and showed me the way but I still have my mischievous puppy behavior. I think it is safe to say they tolerate me.
I am a really handsome fella who just happens to have a tail. My tail is always wagging! I am so happy all the time. I am tall and lean and generally small stature for a boxer. My insides are full of springs. I can bound up really high when I get excited. I know I am not supposed to jump on my people but sometimes I forget. When I compete for attention, I jump sometimes. My people don’t allow me on the furniture, but I still try, I am only allowed on the bed and my people let me sleep with them. Sometimes I get a little burst of energy in the middle of the night and I have to go sleep in my crate. My people always try to walk or run me to make sure I am tired. I do well in my crate although it is not my favorite place. I generally have free roam of the house when my people are gone but sometimes I find things to chew on like magazines, packages, books, etc. so my people are putting me in my crate more when they leave for extended periods. I am a puppy, I will outgrown this behavior. It’s all part of being a boxer, it’s is in my genes. I am dog door trained, 100% potty trained, and am EXCELLENT on a leash. Did I mention I totally ignore yard birds ( chickens) and cats. What is not to love about me?
