I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Rosie is a typical dog in many ways. She’s average size. Her breed is nothing special – she could easily be a mix of a dozen dogs. She’s not exceptionally cute – she’s just a humble brown dog, like you’ve seen a hundred times before. In a world full of dogs who need homes, she’s easy to skim past. However, if you take a closer look, you’ll see much more.
Rosie truly, desperately, wants to be special to someone. She wants a home where she can be important – not human-style important, but dog important. She wants to belong.
Right now Rosie is alone in the world, and she senses this. Her soft brown eyes plead with someone to please look at her, pay attention to her, want her. Her every interaction with humans seems to say, “See? I’m a good dog.”
And she is a very, very good dog. Rosie is the kind of dog who’ll worry about you when you’re sad, and snuggle up next to you on the couch when you’re sick. She’ll bark to let you know someone is at the door. She’d be over the moon if you wanted to play with her. In other words, she might not be the smartest dog in the world, but Rosie understands what matters.
Rosie’s not perfect. She plays hard – too hard to put her in a home with cats or tiny children. She is so eager for attention that we’d like her to be the only dog. But these are small flaws, really.
If you weren’t looking carefully, you might just see another dog. If you look harder, and really see her, you’ll see a loyal friend, who’ll love you no matter what and be grateful for every kindness. You’ll see a dog who is waiting for her person so she can give them all of the love in her beautiful, exceptional heart.
