"Hi Minnesota friends, my name is Rosie and I am a stray from Chicago. I’m approximately 5 years old and fully potty-trained.
My foster mom would say I am a very loving and affectionate pup, I love being in the presence of her and I’m always curious as to where she goes throughout the house. I love to be petted, brushed and just sitting on your lap. I do not like riding in the car, it makes me a bit nervous (perhaps because it is new to me.) I enjoy walking on a leash and am very attentive; I also like to meet and greet new people and dogs I encounter along the way. I can be a bit tense around a lot of noise and small children. I am very content laying on my blankets and soft pillow. Toys are a bit new for me and I am learning to play with them. My foster mom says I “oink” and she laughs at me, saying “it is so cute”. I am a companion dog and enjoy being with people, I get a bit bored when I am by myself."
My adoption fee, including MN state taxes, is $375.46. I'm available to adopt within a 50 mile radius of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/Saint Paul.
If you'd like to meet me, please attend NorthStar's Nice To Meet Tzu adoption events, held the second Sunday of each month from 12-2pm at the Edina Chuck & Don's (I'm sorry, I'm not available for private meet and greets, please check our Events calendar the day before to see if I'm attending.)
