Welcome to the ONU Family

As you all know, Boo went back to 4Paws for Ability to get additional training. When she went back, we got a new puppy named Rossco. Rossco is a six-month-old golden-lab. He comes from the Mascots litter. He has eleven siblings and his parents are River Tam and Bodi. Rossco is adorable. It was heartbreaking to give Boo back, but having Rossco helps. He was at Ohio Northern for about a week as a temporary puppy while Saber was getting spayed. He is now a permanent ONU pup. Rossco has a big personality. He loves to snuggle and he loves people. We went to Ada Elementary last Thursday to have kids read to the puppies, and he did great! I enjoyed being around the kids. He kept wanting to climb into their laps, sniff their books, or lick their toes. Rossco also really loves to snuggle. My co-handlers and I are always seen petting him and having him lay with us when we are in our rooms. Rossco is known as the puppy who doesn't walk on campus, but we are starting to fix that. Treats are very helpful during this process. Rossco is smart and he is starting to learn what to do. He'll be my summer project since he will be my summer foster. We will have to learn how to hold commands and learn some new ones. I'm very excited to work with him and I hope he thinks the same. All I can say is 'Welcome to the ONU family, Rossco'!

  1. Rossco is absolutely adorable! I still laugh when I think of him not wanting to walk. I am going to miss seeing the 4 Paws pups over the summer. They are all so cute and bring such a positive light to Ohio Northern. Thanks for all that you do! Keep up the great work!
