This is Roscoe, and we adopted him into
our family in August. The story with him was that he was in a
shelter getting ready to be put down since it was full, and they
fortunately contacted KPR. Marla, his foster mom, nursed him back to
health. He had fleas, which he is allergic to, so he had some skin
problems due to that, and also had kennel cough from the shelter.
I was searching for another pug weeks before Roscoe's picture was
KPR's website, and had filled out an adoption application. I had a
had recently passed away, and I knew when he was gone that I had to
another little puggie to fill that empty void and sadness I felt
loss. I checked KPR's website regularly in the weeks when I was
find out more about adoption, and one day when I checked it there
Roscoe's picture. He was so cute! I immediately got excited and said
"that's my dog"! Little did I know at the time that Amy was already
considering him for my family to adopt.
I was so excited about meeting Roscoe
and adopting him before I knew
anything about him. Then I contacted Marla, his foster mommy, to get
more info on him. She described his as very sweet, but a very active
hyper little boy. We agreed to meet within the week. Then I started
second thoughts....I had totally convinced myself that he may be too
and active for Waydon, my son, who wasn't even 2 years old yet.
Roscoe came from the shelter they didn't have much information on
families that had him before, so they were unsure if he had been
little kids. I called Marla back and told her that I had changed my
about adopting him. I was so bummed about the decision since I had
ready to get him. She told me that he was really a sweetie and she
thought that he would suite us just fine. She asked me if I would
consider meeting him, so I could get a feel of his personality, then
When I saw that little guy coming toward me, I just couldn't say no.
ended up taking him that night and I'll have to admit it was a
in the beginning. I had my guard up because I wasn't sure how him
son would get along. But actually to my surprise they hit it off
well!! Waydon says that Roscoe is so cute, and gives him hugs and
everyday! Roscoe tolerates his "toddler behavior" very well! When we
outside Roscoe never leaves Waydon's side. I didn't know if I could
another dog as much as my sweet pug who has passed, but having
Roscoe has assured me that I can!
I'm so glad that I didn't give up on
adopting Roscoe! I almost missed out
on him. I found out that Roscoe had 2 families before he was sent to
shelter and he is only 2 years old. I just couldn't figure out why
these families didn't want to keep him.....but now I think I
because he was meant to be with me!
I want to thank Marla and Amy, both whom helped me with the adoption
process! Thank you ladies so very much! KPR is so great to these
little pugs. I hope all of them find their forever homes!
