At A Glance
Welcome to RAGOM Rosco :) This beautiful boy arrived at his temp foster home in Oakdale today! Rosco is about 70 lbs, seems to be a perfect weight for his frame, has a medium golden colored coat, with slight greying around the eyes and muzzle (cute!!). He came to us from a shelter and was found as a stray who was not claimed. During his time at the shelter they were able to track down some old vet records, so we do know that his name is Rosco, and that he is 7 1/2 years old (will be 8 in June). We know nothing else :( He is now up to date on vaccines thanks to the shelter, and tested negative for heartworm (yay!). He will be neutered and microchipped tomorrow, and then will be all set!
So far... Rosco has met the resident crew (3 GR , and a yorkie) with tail wags! I have learned he is very sweet, has a typical, loving, Golden personality :) He rode well in the car for the transporter on the way here, he was shaking a little bit when he first came into the house... I can imagine this is all very overwhelming for the poor boy. He has since settled in for a nap at my feet :) He is tethered to me for now, as he did lift his leg to mark the coffee table (did someone say neuter tomorrow?!) he responded immediately to my "No" and we went outside and he hasn't had an issue since. (Good boy!) But, we'll keep him nice and close for the night just in case he gets any other ideas :) He responds to the "sit" command and came when he was called back to me from the corner of our fenced in backyard. All in all, he seems to be a very nice older gentleman that will melt your heart and be your best buddy!
I will keep learning all I can about Rosco and report back in the days to come. Think good thoughts for him tomorrow for his surgery!
