Clover, a 7-year-old corgi-Lab mix, is also shy. She was rescued from the home of a hoarder, and, like Roscoe, doesn't have much experience with humans caring for her. Although the staff at Ramapo-Bergen usually pairs introverted dogs with more social ones, they saw that Roscoe and Clover gravitated toward each other right away.
"When Roscoe met Clover, it was love at first sight. When they gaze at each other with their big dark eyes, it will melt your heart," the shelter posted on Facebook. "They are inseparable."
Roscoe and Clover's doggie love story made headlines in January, and the staff at Ramapo-Bergen thought the publicity would help the two find a forever home. Although the shelter has gotten calls from interested families, none have been the right match for Clover and Roscoe.
"After all that coverage we were all like these two dogs are going to finally get their home," Ramapo-Bergen lead trainer Jayne O'Connor told The Record. "We're devastated we haven't been able to find a proper home for these two wonderful and playful dogs."
For now, Roscoe and Clover are safe, and they're happy to have each other. But now that these two have found canine love, they deserve to know what it's like to be loved by a human, too. The rescuers at Ramapo-Bergen are waiting for a gentle, experienced female dog lover who will keep these two together.
"The best [engagement] gift of all would be a forever home for the pair," the shelter posted.
