Story
Hello, my name is Rudy, a sun loving, toy destroying cuddler. My family is growing with little humans, that I just cant seem to get comfortable with. I would do best to be in an adult home with infrequent visits from little ones. I am very smart and my parents have put a lot of time into my training. I have real life training skills such as "place", "lets go", "leave it", recall and when my little doorbell rings I know to go to my crate. I have been e-collared trained and know how to walk on a leash. My favorite activities include playing tug-o-war, running around outside, playing fetch, and napping on my dog bed or couch. I do have some behavioral quirks, so my new family will need to provide me with structure and stability. If you end up being the right fit for me, my family will supply all the tools I currently use, so that we are best set up for success. I really am the perfect boy, but need the controlled energy that adults provide.

Bucky

Australian Shepherd Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)

Male, 4 yrs 2 mos
West Falls, NY

Story
Bucky is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd mix. He is a little joyous ball of energy weighing around 30lbs. He goes very few places without a ball in his mouth, is incredibly athletic, and loves attention from everyone he meets. He is cat neutral, gets along great with all dogs (though dogs that want to reciprocate play will be necessary), crates wonderfully, and is potty trained with a consistent routine! Bucky came from a hoarding case in KY where someone passing themselves off as a rescue had dogs chained outside in deplorable conditions with no shelter, and eventually started dumping dogs to cover their tracks. A long time rescuer saved 60 dogs from the situation, and 2 of them made their way to us up north to search for their forever families with us! Bucky is searching for a home with children over the age of 10 and a fully fenced yard due to his energy level. He does well with dogs of all sizes, but does want to play with them all, so dogs under 20lbs and of toy stature, older dogs, or very dog-shy dogs would not be a good fit. Bucky is accepting applications and is currently available for meet and greets with approved adopters! If you’re interested in adopting him or getting pre-approved for our other dogs, please fill out the adoption application at www.RosebudRescue.com/adopt

Reason (Pending)

Australian Shepherd

Story
Reason is an approx. 11 month old female Australian Shepherd weighing 35lbs. She spent the start of her life living in deplorable conditions at a puppy mill before recently coming into rescue. She is so sweet, very interested in making new friends (dog and people!) and is incredibly treat and praise motivated which should make training a breeze! She LOVES toys and almost always has one with her. She has the typical high energy of an Aussie but also loves a good cuddle session! She understands the concept of going potty outside with a consistent schedule and crates well in a quiet area. Reason’s leash training is a work in progress as she is fearful of pressure from the leash, but has already improved immensely. We will send her off with some tips and tricks to work through this and as with all of our dogs, will be here for training advice throughout and after her adoption. NO cats or small dogs due to her herding instincts, however Reason’s ideal adopter would have another playful dog in the house over 20lbs to keep her company. A fully fenced yard is required at this time due to her energy level and leash training. Reason is accepting applications and is currently available for meet and greets with approved adopters! If you’re interested in adopting her or getting pre-approved for our other dogs, please fill out the adoption application at www.RosebudRescue.com/adopt Please note, Reason is only available on a foster-to-adopt basis until spayed.

Ophelia

American Staffordshire Terrier American Bulldog

Female, 3 yrs 7 mos
West Falls, NY
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details

Story
Ophelia is a very special dog here at Rosebud Rescue and has been with us for over a year while we worked with her, and she is finally ready to find her perfect forever home. Ophelia is 100% deaf and because of this will ONLY be available on a foster-to-adopt basis for a minimum of 3 months to ensure it is the perfect fit. Ophelia is around 3.5 years old and just under 50lbs. She can be a tiny bit shy at first but will smother you in kisses in no time! She loves attention, toys, and playing with other dogs, but will mirror them and match their energy level. She is incredibly smart and knows several hand signals for training commands, and really loves it when you find ways to communicate with her! She is trained to report to you with the flash of a light, so recall from the yard or other side of the room is a breeze. She cannot live with cats or uncaged small animals due to her prey drive. She is crate trained but can be a bit vocal and would rather be confined to a room when left, though she doesn't have a tendency to get into things she shouldn't have. Ophelia has a history of getting overstimulated in new situations, which turned into anxious energy and an unfocused dog. She was recently started on generic Prozac and it has really helped to manage this. It is affordable and easy to administer, a potential adopter would need to keep her on this medication. While adventures outside of the house are still a work in progress, she has made a lot of improvement over the last 2 months or so! She does walk on a gentle leader, but is a VERY strong dog so someone who can handle her weight while out and about and continue working on loose leash walking is a must. We know little about Ophelia's past other than it appears she had many litters of puppies in her short life before she got to us. It is unknown if her missing ear was due to an injury or a failed crop job. She will cower if you move too fast or pick up an object, leading us to believe she wasn't treated very well. She was passed around to a few different owners before she ended up with us after seeing a plea from a good samaritan who took her in but could not keep her long term after seeing her posted on Craigslist for rehoming, with the reason that they couldn't call her in from the yard! Ophelia is looking for a home without young children due to her size and energy level. NO CATS. A fully fenced yard is required, and she thrives in the company of dogs so there must be at least another resident dog in the home. If a very special adopter with no dogs is ready for 2, she has plenty of adoptable friends here as well! Ophelia is accepting applications and is currently available for meet and greets with approved adopters! If you’re interested in adopting her or getting pre-approved for our other dogs, please fill out the adoption application at www.RosebudRescue.com/adopt

Details
Good with dogs, Good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Joplin is an approx. 6 year old, 60lb Border Collie/German Shepherd mix. He is smart, goofy, cuddly, and obviously drop dead gorgeous!! Joplin is cat neutral and LOVES to play with other dogs of all sizes. He walks great on a leash and loves playing with toys, crates well, and is potty trained with a routine. He can be a bit reserved in new situations, but he’s got a ton of spunk and a puppy-like personality! Joplin is one of the 7 dogs who came to us from another rescue after being saved from a hoarding situation in KY where dogs were living chained outside in deplorable conditions and despite his previous treatment, he’s a forgiving soul and has all the love in the world left to give to his new forever family. Joplin is fully vetted and ready for adoption, but you can always try our foster-to-adopt program if you want to make sure he’s the perfect fit for you. If you’re interested in adopting Joplin or getting pre-approved for any of our other dogs, please fill out an adoption application at www.rosebudrescue.com/adopt

Zeke

Rottweiler Mountain Cur

Male, 2 yrs 7 mos
West Falls, NY
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Good with dogs, Not good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Zeke is a drop dead gorgeous mixed breed big boy (Rottie? Cur? Plott Hound? Your guess is as good as ours!) He weighs around 60lbs and is approximately 2-3 years old. He loves to play with other dogs but can get a little overstimulated and plays rough, so his ideal dog playmate would be similar in size and energy level and have the patience to deal with a goofy dog. He can be a bit of a bull in a china shop, but he’s just sooo excited to be on to his next adventure in life! Zeke was saved by another rescue with 60+ other dogs from a hoarding situation in KY and has spent the last few months in boarding, but he’s working very hard on his manners and becoming a gentleman. He will keep himself entertained with toys for hours, is fabulous in the crate, and is potty trained with a consistent routine. He loves walks, but he’s a strong dog and his loose leash walking is a work in progress. Zeke would definitely benefit from a fenced yard, but we won’t rule out an otherwise perfect home that can give him an outlet for his energy in other ways. Due to his size and strength he is looking for a home with no cats, small dogs, or young children. Zeke is fully vetted and ready for adoption, but you can always try our foster-to-adopt program if you want to make sure he’s the perfect fit for you. If you’re interested in adopting Zeke or getting pre-approved for any of our other dogs, please fill out an adoption application at www.rosebudrescue.com/adopt
