Facts about Rose

  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Rose and another dog were surrendered by someone who didn't take the best care of them. They were not allowed inside the house so weathered frigid and scorching days together as best they could.

Rose is friendly and smart and is around 2 1/2 years old. She doesn't seem to want other animals around so needs to be the only pet. She weighs just under 40 lbs.

Rose is healthy but has a case of heartworms which we'll see her through. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from her. They are curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. Rose is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows she's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.
