Since being saved from that terrible place, Rose's foster family has showered her with lots of attention and love. She is overcoming her fears. Quite honestly, except for being wary around strangers, she is the model dog that everyone wants. She gives and receives affection, is not demanding, is happy to play or just sit with you, and gets along well with other dogs. She delights to roll around in the grass at the park and show off her beautiful white lighting bolt on her chest.
Rose has always enjoyed walks, but would just “watch” the other dogs play ball. One day she leaped up and joined in the chase. Ever since she has been a daily competitor in fetch. She walks along nicely on leash. Her prey instinct is intact; interested in chasing rabbits, and sniffing out lizards and mice. We’re not sure how she will do around cats. She was not accustomed to much physical activity, but now anticipates her long morning walks and active play. She surprised us with her speed and agility. Initially she was reluctant to get in the car, but now jumps up with no hesitation.
We’ve been working on teaching Rose to stay in a “sit” or “down” position, She is very food motivated which makes training times fun and effective. She is also working on “crawl” and “shake.” She is house and crate trained (though we rarely use it now), and travels well in the car.
At the rescue she paired off with her friend Sophie, and they share the same foster home, where she is at ease with a large, active family. Sophie would miss Rose, but Rose is quite able to adapt to being an “only-dog” and making new dog friends.
Rose does not get on the furniture, and is not destructive in any way. Her favorite place to be is somewhere near you. She will follow you from room to room and settle down by your feet.
Rose is estimated to be 5 yrs old. She is spay, up to date and vaccines, and microchipped
Her adoption donation is $250 which helps our rescue provide food and medical care to all the dogs in our rescue.
