Rosie's Story...

Meet Rosie

If you think you can give Rosie her forever home, please read about Gentle Jake's screening process and complete an application via our website:

Rosie is a 3-4 year old Coonhound who is a quiet, happy, super sweet girl. Her tail is constantly wagging and she loves absolutely everyone - people, dogs and cats. She is a total lovebug who just wants to please. She is also a very smart girl who leans very quickly. 

She was a bit timid at first, but she is now getting used to people and is appreciating all the love and attention she was clearly deprived of previously.   Rosie enjoys running about with a puppy-ish, carefree abandon and she loves to empty the toy box. She truly enjoys receiving attention and once comfortable with you, she will climb into your lap to receive loving strokes along her ears, and belly rubs.  

Rosie's former life was clearly not a pleasant one --but she's moved beyond her past and is embracing the good life!  She had been found by someone in the community, who carried her into a local shelter as she was too weak and thin to stand/walk on her own. She had suffered from abuse, weighing only 23 lbs. and was literally starving to death; she had difficulty with her rear leg and she was unable to raise her head off the floor. Her examining vet discovered Rosie's neck had previously been broken and healed on its own, forming a calcium deposit. While this in itself does not present an issue for Rosie, it explained why she holds her head the way she does.  

Rosie now enjoys the company of her foster siblings, which includes a few rescue Hounds and cats that keep her company throughout the day. After only a few days after her arrival, with the opportunity for more exercise and play time, she developed more muscle tone and strength. She is now able to get onto the pet couch with ease and is running about in the yard. Her initial fear of loud noises has subsided considerably; while she still does not like them, she is no longer terrifed of them. 

Rosie's foster Mom says: "Of all the dogs I have recently fostered (and there have been some great ones), Rosie is the best yet! What a sweetheart!".  


An adoption donation of $350.00 applies.

Location:  PETERBOROUGH, ON.     With the help of volunteers, transportation to a dog's forever home can possibly be arranged. Don't let distance deter you!         

All of our dogs are fully vetted.    They have been vaccinated, altered, microchipped and heartworm tested and on prevention.      

Pet listings are updated daily. Unless it says otherwise at the top of this bio, this dog is still available for adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosie, a Ontario Bluetick Coonhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bluetick Coonhound for sale in Ontario, or seeking a Bluetick Coonhound dog from a breeder in Ontario.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ontario already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Ontario breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Bluetick Coonhound breeders who help with Bluetick Coonhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ontario paves the way for another one to be saved.
