There are families in this world who are called to help special-needs dogs. The thought of taking in a dog, changing his life by giving him tender loving care, and communicating gentleness, changing his entire life—this really speaks to some people. If you are one of those, you might consider working with Roscoe. He arrived as an unsocialized and basically untouchable boy after his owner called to ask for help with him. We know nothing about his breed mix, but in foster care for a month, we can now assess more easily. He accepts being handled gently, massaged and stroked. He has let us know that his head was hurt due to trauma suffered as a puppy.  He occasionally has tremors that we feel are probably related to this previous trauma. We can only speculate what happened to him, but we are very glad he is in different circumstances now. Our thanks to Amanda for spending time with him and letting him know how much he is loved. His foster mom will proceed with recommendations for working with special boys like this. We feel he would be happy in a home with older folks, where he can climb up on the sofa and curl up next to a human when he is ready. His foster mom is happy to share all that she can with anyone who might be interested.
