Meet Adoptable Rosie!
Rosie is a 7-8 month old, female, 40lb, Shepard X Husky. Rosie first came to us from Northern Saskatchewan and she was a very sick dog suffering from extreme mange covering her whole body,
and bad secondary infections on top of that. The reality at that time was she may not make it. We rushed her to Waves Animal Hospital where she spent three days in critical condition getting the best care. Thankfully, she survived and was then able to be released into special foster care. Since then she has been improving slowly day by day, and her personality was starting to form and show, and what a sweet one it’s been. I mean, how could you not fall in love with this super sweet girl that has come back from such suffering to start her life of love for the first time. Rosie means so much to so many and is an inspiration to us to never give up.
Info from her foster Mom: Rosie is a true survivor. She first came to me as a very scared and sick pup. For the first few days, she barely had the strength to stand up for meals. Over the last 6 weeks, she has healed, both physically and emotionally. She is very trusting of most people, but can be wary of young children and other dogs. She has never been aggressive, but will let another dog know if they have gotten too close and she’s a bit nervous. She is learning her basic commands, and is very quick to lear new things. She walks well on a leash. Although she can be frightened of loud noises, heavy doors, and sudden movements, but she is getting better all the time, day by day, walk by walk. She takes treats gently and loves a good belly rub! Rosie would do best starting off in a household that can give her patience, love and the exercise she needs. She has become a very energetic pup that needs to be walked a lot. Her ideal home to start would either not have any other dogs, or would have a very gentle dog that can go slow with her and give her space until she becomes more confident with them. We are unsure how she would do in a household with young children, as she is startled by them outside, so perhaps at this time she would be most comfortable with no children in her home. She will ongoing socializing and training as any dog does, and will need someone who is able to give her the mental exercise she needs, as she gets bored easily and demands attention. Rosie has come a long way since she was first rescued! Rosie is a gentle, sassy girl who is quick to love!
