ROSIE AB#18-135 – F, 1 1/2 Years

Foster dog name: Rosie

Gender: Female

Age: About 1 1/2

Size/Weight: 30 lbs

Color: Irish Setter Red w/ white chest, back paws, and tail tip

Breed: Shelter said Irish Setter mix, but she is small and probably has some heeler in her heritage

Good with Children: Best with older or no children

Good with Dogs: Rosie gets along with the three resident dogs and foster dog

Good with Cats: Unknown, but probably not a good idea since she chases rabbits in the yard

House trained: Yes

Crate trained: Yes

Leash trained: Working on it. She will come with a harness.

Behavior:  Rosie is both independent and attentive. She is aware of where her humans are and generally likes to be in the same room and will occasionally jump on the couch to be near us. When she gets nervous about things, she will retreat to our bed and sleep.

Activity Level: She is playful and will run outside and even chase one of the resident dogs occasionally. Indoors she enjoys a dog bed, couch, or human bed. She does get animated at feeding time and will spin and dance!

Fence:  Yes, fence is required. She gets the zoomies and runs wide open. She enjoys scoping out the yard and checking on her surroundings. She has been known to chase the rabbits that get inside the fence and will dig where they escape.

Medical History: Rosie is spayed, current on vaccinations, on heartworm preventative, wears a seresto collar for fleas and ticks, and microchipped.

Foster Comments: Rosie can be best described as a cat in dog clothing. She enjoys being outside checking out the world and is very animated at feeding time, but she chooses when she wants to be with you on the couch or in her safe spot - the master bedroom bed. Rosie will need a calm, patient, and understanding home that will work with her on building confidence. A round of positive reinforcement obedience class would probably do wonders. Rosie probably wouldn’t be the best walking buddy because she is fearful of new things and surroundings. With TLC and patience, she will make someone a great buddy. We can see she wants to do things, but her fears prevent her. Another confident dog in her life would be a plus so she can continue to learn that life is good and how to be a dog.
