Rose has been unavailable to take applications because Ms. Rose had eight puppies and needed to stick around to take care of them. All eight have flown the coop, and she is ready to find her fur-ever home.
While she waits patiently for her new family to fill out an inquiry, she will have an appointment to be spayed. She is up to date with all of her vaccinations. She still needs to put on a couple of pounds. Taking care of all those puppies takes a lot out of those mama dogs.
If you ask me to describe Rose, I can do it with one word: joy. She is a very happy girl and loves to run and play with her foster fur-sister. Rose is quite social and loves to be petted. She is just a little shy when she first meets someone, but very quickly come to get pets and some lovin’.
When I say “run,” you need to picture in your mind the image of a gazelle. That is what she acts like, with those skinny legs and the small body leaping and bouncing across the yard. She also leaps sideways. She will be standing still and leap to the side. It's the strangest thing I have ever seen in one of my fosters.
Rose was a breeder girl, and we are working through housetraining. In all honesty, it was not my number 1 focus with the puppies in the house. Rose will not soil the area she is in, such as a penned area, but if given free roam of the house, she will pee at night.
With the puppies, she was not kenneled as I had her and the puppies in a large kennel area. I will be getting her used to going into a kennel this next week.
Rose needs another dog as an example of how to be, and really, she needs a playmate. When left to herself, she gets bored and is not really all that interested in chewing bones or toys. Now, leave the toy on the floor and let her play keep away with another pup, and she is entertained for hours.
She recently learned that if she jumps on the patio table, she can get a better view of the yard. We are working on deterring her from that activity.
She is learning to come when she hears her name and for a whistle. I do allow my pups to jump on the couch and bed, so she will want to do that in her fur-ever home.
She needs work on walking on a leash. We are starting to do more of that now that I can focus on her and her alone.
Rose is very loving and she will be a great companion to both her humans and fur-family.
