Rose Quartz walks calmly on leash. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Rose Quartz followed the assessor at the end of the leash with a calm and relaxed body language when playing tag. She was not interested in toys.
Finder brought Rose Quartz to our shelter. According to the finder Rose Quartz was very friendly but she kept the dog isolated on her porch for safety reasons. When Rose Quartz entered the shelter she bounded in with a wagging tail pulling finder along. She jumped and put her front paws onto the reception counter with a wagging tail.

A volunteer writes: One of my favorite gemstones known for its soft pink color, its meaning is all about love: “a healer of heartbreak”, “stone of the heart”, “stone of love”, and I can’t think of a better name for this gorgeous girl than this one! Her coat is sleek and lush, and although she’s a bit too thin in my opinion takes treats gently. Rose may be housetrained, ‘going’ as soon as we were out the door, her leash manners are lovely, and her tail wags as I talk to her. Although a little shy at first, Rose loves to be pet, laying her
head in my lap and snuggling close, her tail wagging as we cuddle. When I stop petting her she nudges my hand with her nose and I can hear her quoting something about ‘idle hands’! So sweet and gentle, Rose is alert to the activities on a busy summer morning in the park, ignores all the dogs we pass, and is happy to be close to her person. Rose is in a top kennel and didn’t mind being lifted in and out – as a matter of fact she may have enjoyed the extra cuddle time! She’s a gem (pun intended), hoping to find her way into your heart as her name suggests. Hold her close to your heart and love her happily ever after as she will you.
