Rosie is a nine-year-old purebred English Cream Golden. She is spayed. She is now up-to-date on vaccines and microchipped, and weighs 55 pounds. From her papers it looks like she was originally from Europe. She was re-homed from her original US home about four years ago. She then lived with a family that had three children, one of the children has become severely allergic to animals, so she needed to be re-homed yet again.
She came to St. Paul last Friday. I was dog-sitting. She walked into the yard and met the five males in the yard without a single issue. She has since met a female. It's totally clear she is fine with dogs. She's also met the two cats. The older, bigger boy told her to leave him alone. She has. The younger one hasn't quite made her point yet, I think in part because she's not sure what her point is. She loves the three residents and they are all gentle with her so she's hoping Rosie will be too. So far, Rosie has stalked her a bit but not obsessively. I just think she's trying to figure out what this little gray bolt of lightening is.
Rosie had been sleeping in the sun porch at her last home....to keep her away from the allergic child. They also said she should be crated when nobody was home because she'd had some accidents when home alone, so we've been crating her when nobody is home and gating her into the bedroom at night so we can ease her transition into our home. So far, she's been perfect.
We'll update again but from the first five days at my house, it's pretty clear she should be a quick placement. She doesn't seem to have any issues. She can stay alone, she walks well, she rides well in the car, she doesn't seem to mind storms, she doesn't seem to guard anything, she gets along with everyone....all in all, she seems pretty perfect. And have I mentioned....she is DROP-DEAD Gorgeous!
She definitely is fine with other dogs.
I took this photo to show how light Rosie is....
the Golden to her right is a very light golden,
but he looks dark next to her
