What's it like to be happily middle-aged? Let Rosie show you. She has enough energy to enjoy daily adventures, but her mellowness will remind you that her puppy days are well behind her. We know the feeling.
Rosie loves to get in some exercise with a good play session in the yard, and she enjoys her daily walks. She's even game for a jog. But she likes to take life fairly easy in the home with plenty of time for sleeping and lazing around. She's been living with an APA! foster family who loves her friendly, fun, and affectionate nature. But they have also found Rosie to be independent, and not in need constant attention. She's been well behaved when left alone in the home.
Rosie knows her basic commands, and her foster is teaching her some new ones. She's generally indifferent to other dogs, and may be willing to share a home with a well-paired mate.
Rosie takes a few days to get comfortable to new environments, but once she's settled in she has proven to be a home-ready dog who will make a great companion. She'll probably be able to make a smooth transition to her new home, but don't forget that APA's behavioral team will be available to help with any questions that may arise. And once we have been able to find the right family for Rosie, we will have space to take another dog into our program!
