My foster family says they’ve been having fun watching me “blossom” which, considering my name is Rose, seems appropriate. I have learned some basic skills and manners, mastered stairs, and am pretty good on leash.

I’m quiet and I love to play, especially with toys! I can manage several toys at once, giving them equal play time. When I come out of my large crate/play area in the afternoon, I bring my toys out one at a time. I also found the hidden toy bin and enjoyed giving each toy my individual attention.  In addition to toys, I also love chewies!  I’m a trim 45 pounds too!

I am very gentle with people and dogs I meet on walks because, well, I am a naturally curious and happy girl.  I will need a loving home with patience to continue working with me on basic skills, gentle playing, and sharing toys. My foster mom has intervened a few times when I was playing with the resident dog – she gave me “time outs” so I could remember to play positive games and not bite the resident dog’s ears.  With focused work, I will continue improving very quickly.

As an active 1 year old girl, physical and mental stimulation, as well as emotional bonding, are important to me. I am very sweet and smart and my foster family says I learn “surprisingly” fast.  (I THINK that’s a complement, but I’m not sure. Did they think I’d be slow?) Anyway, I love to give sweet kisses to my humans. My foster family says I will be a wonderful “furever” dog.  With you, I would love to prove them right.
