Roscoe alias Checkers is in need of another home!

Remember our Dog Park Arroyo Mutt, Checkers alias Roscoe?

I just learned this from an ad on Craig's list posted January 29th:

Remember the dog rescued from the park December 16 2009, that I helped find a home for? Well, I got a call today (I was listed as emergency backup) that his owner is in the hospital, indefinitely. Now, again, I must find a home for this dog -- someone who can care for him. Anyway, Roscoe (formerly "Checkers") is about the sweetest, most mellow creature you will meet. He is a submissive male, and as a result, my male alpha Jack goes after him aggressively, so I cannot foster him until his owner is well, or until another home is found -- perhaps yours! I am boarding him at my vet until I find someone to take him in. He has all his medical needs addressed, but he needs a place to be! Please, please, pass this along. This is a mellow blue Heeler, about 6 years old, totally behaved and house-trained -- and loves kids. He is love, love, love!

I must find him a home, or temporary foster, asap. Thanks!~ Amy (702) 622-4622

okay... thanks. When I looked at the post initially, the paragraph of explanation was not showing... hope this guy can find a good home or foster... poor guy. I have three and just can't take on another... but will put out the word to my friends... bless you for taking him back in.

I don't know more then this post says which I took off Craig's list. It says the new owner got hospitalized indefinitely and this sweet creature needs a new home. From everything we know he is a very nice guy. Sure hope a place will be found, please pass it on!
