Reston Pets of the Week: Rosco and Casey

Becky's Pet Care

Reston Now’s first Reston Pet of the Week is actually two pets, mixed breeds Rosco and Casey.

Here is what owner Rachel says about her dogs:

Rosco and Casey are adopted brothers who have been living in Reston for a few years now. Rosco is a 7-year-old mix consisting primarily of Boxer and Pitbull. Casey is a 5-year-old Border Collie, Brittney mix. Rosco was given to me as a puppy and Casey was adopted from the Prince William County Animal Shelter when he was 2.

Rosco is an avid ball chaser, and his favorite place to do that is at the Baron Cameron Off Leash Dog Park. When we get to the park he picks out a ball and that becomes his favorite ball. You can try tossing different balls for him to chase, but he won’t go after any other ball.

When he is at home he prefers to play with his stuffed toys and try and get his dad to play catch inside. Even though he is a well behaved dog for the most part, he has known to be a little mischievous when he is bored. Rosco has even figured out how to unscrew the lid from the food storage container so he can have a snack in the middle of the day.

Casey is an attention seeker. If you have your hand on your lap, he has been known to stick his head underneath your hand and move his head up and down until you pet him. He is very clever. Casey also loves being outdoors and can’t understand why he is not allowed to go play with all of the woodland creatures when we are on a walk. Casey also enjoys being at the dog park and won’t hesitate to go up to all of the humans he knows for some affection. That always happens after he does a “mad dash” around the park a few times.

Even though these boys are completely different breeds, one of the many things they have in common is that they love to sleep. Rosco will lay down next to me and stick his nose underneath my arm and be asleep almost immediately, while Casey prefers either to curl up right behind the legs of my fiancé, or sleep on his back. These two are quite a pair, and our lives would not be as interesting without them!
