Based on false allegations from a neighbor, the family was forced to turn Rosco over for impoundment and what started out as a typical 10-day 'Dangerous Dog Hold', has turned into a court battle to 'Save Rosco'. Incidents reported include a dog that did not match Rosco's description and also an incident date that Rosco was in another town under the care of a relative while the family was on vacation. The complainant has failed to show for 2 court dates and the judge has granted continuances both times. With an impending threat that Rosco could be euthanized, his family has rallied to fundraise for legal representation at each court date. As the judge grants the continuances, Rosco deteriorates in his kennel at CACC, first battling Kennel Cough, an neck sore (possibly from being restrained to administer medication for Kennel Cough and also urine burns on his paws. In addition his nails have not been trimmed during his 73 days (as of June 3, 2015) of confinement. Promises were made by CACC staff and then retracted. The court dates have been continued to June 9, 2015. Meanwhile, Rosco sits and waits in a small jail-like cell. He can't understand why his family has to leave him there after each weekly visit session available to them. Meanwhile, his family scrambles to fundraise for legal representation, struggles to raise awareness to the public as to what is going on at CACC and above all stay strong and committed to their fight to Save Rosco.
