Foster a Rescue

Fostering is
  FREE and FUN! 

We not only provide you with everything you need to take care of one of our rescues, but the experience is SO fulfilling. By placing one animal into a foster home, you allow us to save another. We are always in need of foster parents.

Meet Rosco!

Rosco was rescued from the streets of Tijuana on the weekend of 1/23/21 when we had the terrible rains.  He just walked into a business office, which had its door open, and he laid down on the floor seeking refuge. Thankfully the employee was a “dog person” and instead of chasing him out, they allowed him to stay and placed him on Facebook seeking help.  We noticed the post and made arrangements to bring Rosco into our rescue group.  

Rosco is a very sweet and hefty medium sized dog.  He seems great with all humans and is friendly and outgoing.  He is active (buy not crazy) and will need an active human to take him for walks and on hikes.  He enjoys car rides and has done really well in his crate.  Rosco enjoys playing fetch with his toys and will possibly share with other dogs.  He has done well with female dogs and puppies, but since he is not yet neutered, we have not had him around many other male dogs.  He is able to jump high, so a 6-foot fence is absolutely necessary.  Rosco does not enjoy being in the yard alone or for long even with another dog friend.  He will scratch at the door or vocalize, but this behavior does not last long or happen often.  So we think he is not a dog that would do well alone in the yard.  

Rosco would make a great family dog, although he should live in a home without cats (we are not sure about other little furry creatures).  We do not know if he has a prey drive or was just scared/reactive when he saw the cats upon arriving to his new foster home.  Rosco will need to be trained how to be an inside dog, as he has never had a home.  Therefore, he will need house training, potty training, and basic dog training, etc.  He is not a big “leg lifter,” which we are very happy about.  He is an overall pretty easy dog, but he is new to everything and is in what we call the “honeymoon stage.”  This means that potential adopters will need to have time to train him as they get to know him and he becomes more familiar with his new family.

Since Rosco is a brand new ARWOB rescue, he will not be available for adoption until 2/19/21.  This is because he will need to go through quarantine and his neuter surgery.  We will be setting up “meet and greets” with Rosco as soon as Friday, 2/19/21.  We recommend that if you are interested in this handsome guy, to submit an online adoption application at www.arwob.org.  This will get the process started and if your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet for you.  If the meet and greet session goes well, Rosco can be adopted that same day.  Please note that we do not place holds on any of our rescues, therefore please do not apply unless you are available to meet Rosco as soon as 2/19/21.
