A volunteer writes (as told by Rosie): What’s that you say? You’re looking for a fun loving, active, smart and affectionate puppy? Well, hey! You’ve found her! I was watching a person walk by my kennel and let her know I would really like to be chosen next for a walk (I pawed at the door), and she’s smart too and knew that’s what I meant. Whew! I needed to go! Volunteer took me to the park and laughed at me telling me how adorably bouncy and puppy like I am…But, when it came time to take some pictures I sat pretty just like she asked. Told you I’m smart. I also like treats which I know how to take gently, and they came with the sit, so hey…..I can do this! I have a French manicure on all four paws, my coat is clean and white, my weight perfect for my size, and I’m social and fun. I also love playing with soft toys and can amuse myself for a long time. I won’t guard it either if you want to play tug with me. Volunteer laughed at me and called me an ‘energizer bunny’…..I’m not sure what that means but I went along with it and wagged my tail. When I see other dogs I wag my tail at them. I just like everybody!! I’m really hoping to find a new home with a person who wants an active, loving, fun and smart puppy by their side. That’s me, Rosie, so come meet me today.
Another volunteer writes: Rosie is an 8 month old girl with white fur and brindle markings and the sweetest eyes. Rosie is a happy girl, a good walker, and joy to be around. Add to that the sweetest little heart and soul, and you have yourself a new best friend!
