Roswell is a bit shy of strangers, but he got oh so lovey after I spent just about 20 minutes with him. <3 Remember, this is the first time I’ve done anything with him, as he had just arrived. He push his face into my hand for pettings, and when I stopped rubbing his face, he’d push it into my palm again. I can only imagine how sweet he will be once he knows a person well!
He walks very nicely with you. Don’t you just love those droopy-sweet sad hound dog eyes?
He loves belly rubs, and having his face rubbed, and laying beside you all cuddled up against you.
He is pretty low key with other dogs and cats, though is cautious when first meeting them. Once he makes friends with the other dog, he enjoys playing.
He seems worried about being harmed when first meeting a person, but has never offered anything but submission when approached. He is very gentle. His foster family had nothing but good to say about him too: They say he enjoys playing with other dogs, and is playful and curious once he’s comfortable. They also say he is a faithful companion and will be missed by all who know him. (And I concur!)
