Sweet little Rosie has only known life in a Greek shelter, no love, walks, just her sister Olive to keep her company. Life was very sad and she did not know the kindness of humans.
Rosie and her sister arrived in the UK a few days ago and what a difference in them both. They are in separate foster homes but with other dogs, and are blossoming. Tails wagging, loving their new lives.
Rosie was the shyer but has adapted really well, but her new family will need to give her a few weeks to adapt and settle.
She has only known life on the streets and in a shelter, so her new family will need to be prepared for the hard work of of introducing her to her new surroundings - basic training, toilet, walking, getting used to noises and living in a home.
With the right boundaries and guidance she will easily adjust and make a great family pet. We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and hard work required.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ADOPT IMMEDIATELY PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REPLY.
SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES WILL BE IN PLACE TO ALLOW MEETING/ADOPTIONS.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dog's name: Rosie
Where does Rosie sleep at night?
Rosie has the run of downstairs during the night with my other 2 dogs. She has a comfy bed under the dining table and that is where she likes to sleep.
How is Rosie with current pets?
Rosie has been great with my 2. She liked them immediately and loves to play with them.
Is Rosie clean indoors?
We’ve had a couple of accidents indoors but she is slowly learning that the garden is for toilet. She will need some extra training and patience.
Can Rosie be left alone?
Yes, Rosie has been left for half an hour and wasn’t even bothered. I’m not sure she noticed I was gone!
Is Rosie out on walks?
Yes, twice a day.
How does Rosie walk on the lead?
Rosie is being walked on a harness. She is slowly getting used to it. She does a funny buckaroo thing when she wants to run and play but is restricted by the length of the lead. But generally, she is very good and doesn’t pull too much.
Has Rosie met with other dogs?
Yes, she is a bit nervous at first but is very inquisitive. She has slowly made friends and had a sniff with them but not yet ready to play with them.
How is Rosie with humans?
Rosie is very timid with strangers but her curious nature does take over. Its taken her some time to get used to the humans in the house. She arrived here very scared having not had a lot of human contact but we have been able to gain her trust fairly quickly. She will need a bit of time and patience so she can learn to trust people.
Have you noticed if Rosie is afraid of any particular things?
She has been afraid of the traffic but is overcoming that with each walk. She definitely doesn’t like the hoover.
Any other useful information ?
Rosie has the sweetest nature, she is a lovely girl. She has so much love to give and has the best waggiest tail I have ever seen. Her new owners will need to be patient with her as she is very timid.
