Rousey came to our shelter in December from Yonkers Animal Shelter, where she had been for over a year. This is an eternity in a city shelter. While there, she was not allowed toys or bedding and she was only brought outside 1-2 times a day by volunteers who loved her very much.
Throughout all of that time and living in those conditions, Rousey never showed anything but love for the people around her. She soaked up any attention and belly rubs she could get and waited, knowing someday soon she would have a better life!
Now that she is at our shelter, she is allowed toys, soft bedding, and she gets out of her kennel run much more often! Life is better for Rousey, but our shelter still is not a home, and that is what she needs and truly deserves. Rousey is very sweet and loves people, but she can be very toy obsessed, after not being allowed any for so long, so we are looking to place her in a home without children. For this reason we also would like to place her as an only pet, although on walks she is very polite when passing other dogs. She seems to possibly be housebroken and she is looking for a loving and understanding home to call her own, preferably somewhere with a comfortable bed to snuggle into!
