It was tough, though, to pick out a puppy without getting to see him in person. We asked for many pics and some video as well as asked a TON of questions. We really liked the idea of getting an older puppy that had already been through puppy boot camp (mostly potty trained, crate trained, leash trained, and socialized with other pets and kids) which made it a little easier to choose a pup since they are older and already have personalities. But it was still not easy. I was so nervous we were going to get a tweaker but in the end we got an absolutely amazing 4 month old puppy with the cutest little kinky tail ever.
The boys leading Roscoe out to his "potty spot". He was trained on cedar shavings so we were instructed to pick where we want him to go to the bathroom and train him to go there every time.
Day 1 and already in love.
Max always wants to brush him.
Sam loves to always be with him. Thankfully Roscoe doesn't mind his personal space being invaded.
Here are some pics of Roscoe with our neighbor and half brother, Copper. They both have the same dad, Chili Pepper (a full blooded red poodle). Copper's mom is a full Golden Retriever and Roscoe's mom, Double Delight, is half Golden, half Lab. It will be interesting to see how Roscoe turns out since Copper looked almost identical to him when he was little. Apparently his hair did not get curly until he was about 6 months old.
