A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Every rose has its thorn. Except this one. Good luck finding one snag, one spike, even one hair out of place on the perfection that is one year-old Rose. A little chocolate nugget with batty ears and a button nose and tippy-toes topped with cream, Rose is simply delicious. No other word for it, nope. She is a feast for the eyes and a shot to the heart and a salve for whatever ails you. I first meet Rose on fall’s first chilly day and am instantly struck by her calm, sweet demeanor. While her neighbors squeal, squawk, and bark, making their desire for a walk plainly known, Rose only looks up from her stuffy toy and tilts her head slightly, the canine version of a shrug and “okay.” She is just as mild-mannered on leash as we pad to the park staying right ahead of my stride. And once she tends to business and sits politely at my feet for some snacks, we head back to the yard for maybe a photo or two. Or a hundred! Because on top of the rest of Rose’s other-worldly charms is the love of the lens of my camera. Once tucked into her pumpkin sweater – something with which she takes no issue – she gives me right angles, left angles, down, sit, and up! Every one of them cover-girl ready. A kiss from a rose is indeed the sweetest thing and here our candy-coated cutie is no different. Once our photo shoot has ended she climbs up to sit at my side for a snuggle in the crook of my arm. Every rose has its thorn except this one now in full bloom and once you’ve met her you’ll know just what I mean. When you see those white tippy-toes straight up to that sweet button nose you’ll think, “never let go, Rose, never let go.” And don’t worry. She never will. Rose is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Rose is a female black and white medium breed dog that is estimated to be 1 year old. She was brought to us as a stray when she was found tied to a post.
Rose was very loose bodied. When I approached her she came up to me whimpering and with a raised paw. She allowed me to check her for injuries and collar her. She sat down and rubbed against my leg. She readily followed me on a leash but was whimpering the entire time.
My medical notes are…
