Brought to the Friends Animal Shelter of Cocke County by Animal Control, he was underweight and his neck was raw from where some one had used a shock collar on him. He was adopted by a family who loved him and cared for him, but they did not have a fenced yard, and he was fond of going off on his own. Roscoe became too strong for them to leash walk, so they surrendered him back to the shelter.
While living with his family, his sibling was a small, sweet, Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix who couldn’t weigh more than 5 pounds. These two were the best of friends and would chase each other through the house and sleep on the sofa, nose to nose, at night.

He just arrived. He rode well in the transport box in my truck, he only fussed when I stopped for intersections, as long as we were moving he was quiet and still. He was eager to meet the other Huskies. Cyrus was unwelcoming at first, which confused Roscoe. They all settled down after a bit.
Roscoe passed his health certification today. He is also a really good boy.
