This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped.
We would like to introduce you to a sweet, shy girl who is waiting to open up and blossom into a confident companion with the help of your love. Meet Rosie! Rosie appears to be a Shepherd mix around 2 years old. She is a sweet girl who can be timid when first meeting new people, but with love, patience and time, she bonds quickly and will become your loving side-kick. We do not know why, but Rosie is very afraid of kids, so she can only go to a home with no kids or one with children over 12. She is submissive with other dogs and takes very well to the smaller ones between 20-30 pounds. She seems to have something of a prey drive and has not lived with cats before, so we would recommend a home with no cats and no small fluffy dogs. She is currently making good progress with house training and walks well on the leash. Rosie does not like crates and will not go in one. Her new family must be okay with her having free roam of the house. In her southern foster home, Rosie has been non-destructive when left home alone and loose. She has recently found her voice and likes to bark when she is excited, so apartment living may not be for her. Rosie would love to have a fenced-in yard to run and play in, but if not available she will need other ways of getting enough off-leash play and exercise. Rosie will blossom in the right home and with the right guidance; basic training in a group class environment will be essential for Miss Rosie, as it will help her learn manners and commands, as well as build her confidence. Rosie's previous family had a change of household circumstances, so they surrendered her to a shelter. Rosie is waiting for her new fur-ever family to come along so they can start a new life together. Don't keep this great girl waiting too long, please fill out an application and get ready to bring Rosie home!
