Rosa, Latin for the flowering shrub, known as a rose, also refers to the color pink. Rosa is also a timeless name, shared by American civil rights activist Rosa Parks. Meet our Rosa, she is a 58lb 3 year-old female Pit-bull. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Rosa is fostered with children ages 8 and above with whom she is very loving. “Delightful,” describes Rosa, as does, affectionate, eager to please, Joyful, playful, and, well-behaved. Rosa knows, “Sit,” and is working on her recall when she is off-leash. Rosa is the only dog in her foster home. Most of her interactions with other dogs, met on walks, have been positive. If you already have a dog and are interested in adopting Rosa, we can arrange for a proper introduction to make sure that Rosa is not only the best match for you, but also for your dog. Rosa is crated when left alone—with a bone if it’s going to be a while. She is housetrained. Rosa walks great wearing a Gentle-leader harness. She is eager to greet other people and dogs on her walks. Rosa is the perfect companion dog—she enjoys walking with her people on leash or off, playing with toys, snuggling in front of the fire, on the couch, on your lap, or under the covers. On a recent off-leash hike in the woods, Rosa happily frolicked in the snow. When they got about a mile and half away they turned back toward the house. Rosa knew the way back and would run ahead a ways, then stop, turn back towards her people and wait for them to catch up to her before starting for home, again. Rosa needs a little time and patience getting used to new experiences, like, riding in the car, or having a bath. But, she is highly trainable, intelligent, and very motivated to please her people. Rosa’s perfect family would enjoy a balanced life that includes a little work (walk) a little play and a whole lot of snuggling.
