Rosie was found abandoned at about one month old in the local town. It was immediately clear that she been hit by a car and had a broken leg. She was absolutely petrified and in such agony.
When Rosie was first rescued she was very fearful and nervous. The local shelter gave her lots of solo attention and cuddles to try and overcome this. She is still fairly timid around new people but once she trusts you she can be very friendly and playful.
Rosie loves being cuddled, given treats and playing with toys. She really latches on to people she trusts and enjoys playing with other dogs. She can be slightly reactive towards new, larger dogs due to nervousness but with reassurance she settles again.
Understandably, due to Rosie’s surgery on her leg, she does not enjoy going to the vets. She has not reacted aggressively to the vet, instead she becomes very nervous and shy. Through lots of positive association and reassurance Rosie should hopefully be able to overcome this fear in time.
The leg that Rosie broke is slightly stiff so any prospective adopters should be aware that this may cause her an issue in old age. Despite this, Rosie has lots of energy and enjoys her walks, she plays like any normal puppy would.
She is a sensitive soul that would enjoy a quiet home and would therefore be best suited to a rural environment
Rosie will be ready to travel from early September.
