Harcourts Team Rescues and Raises Rosco the Cocker Spaniel

The team at Harcourts Marlborough recently said goodbye to temporary resident Rosco the Cocker Spaniel.

Rosco, fondly named by consultant Ross Ayson, joined the Harcourts Marlborough family after being taken in by his foster ‘mum’ consultant Trina Nicholls, who took on the task of raising him.

“When Rosco was born he was the runt of the litter and was rejected by his mother. Trina decided to give him a chance and to hand-rear him. He started life being fed by an eye dropper, which then progressed to a bottle,” office manager Tracey Stratford says.

“Because he needed constant feeding and monitoring, Trina needed to bring him to work each day where he gained a whole lot of aunties and uncles.”

Throughout his time at Harcourts Marlborough, it was discovered Rosco also had a cleft palate, making it harder for him to feed.

With a little teamwork, Rosco was nurtured in a bid to get him up to one kilogram in weight, when he would be heavy enough to undergo an operation to fix the cleft palate, however he is now doing so well that he’s no longer thought to be in need of the operation.

Rosco recently left the comforts of the Harcourts Marlborough office for his new home in Blenheim with a brand new family, and the Harcourts team plans to visit regularly.

We wish Rosco all the best in his new home.

Comments

  1. Rosco is doing super well in his new home. He has a sister dog and three crazy cats as part of his new family. His new nana looks after him during the day teaching him clever things like fetch, while mum and dad are at work. He enjoys daily excursions outside and is now able to venture in and out at his pleasure during these amazing sunny days and loves playing tag with his sister dog on the grass. Yes Rosco has a new family but he will always be a part of the harcourts family with regular visits
