FOSTER FAMILY COMMENTS: We suspect that Rosie is a Beagle/Fox hound mix. She does well with everyone she meets and loves being loved. Her favorite thing is to get belly rubs. She has done very well with her foster brother (Biscuit - a Corgie mix) and sister (Sky - Black Lab mix) since day one and loves playing with them. We do not know if she gets along with cats but could be cat tested. She is housebroken but still needs work with basic commands. Training has not been our priority with the birth of her puppies. Rosie is heartworm positive and will begin treatment as soon as all her puppies have been weaned. Timing of her adoption trial will depend upon her treatment schedule. She is expected to make a full recovery and is eager to begin the next phase of her life. Rosie will make an amazing addition to any family. Our whole family has fallen in love with her and you will too.
EVERY DOG HAS A STORY: Rosie was pulled from a rural shelter and when she was taken for her first vet appointment, it was discovered that she was pregnant! She thrived in her foster home and was given the best care possible. She gave birth to 8 healthy puppies. She has been a wonderful Mother. Look at the photo with her whole family:-) She is now looking for her forever home.
