Available Dogs - Rose

Rose listening


It is hard to believe how much I have changed since NRGRR pulled me from a shelter. They found me there with mange and infections on my skin and in my ears. They knew there was a beautiful dog on the inside that would come out with some medicine, medicated baths, and a little time. And look at me now! I guess they saw me with “rose colored glasses.”

I am a “little sweetie” according to my foster mom. I am timid at first, but once I get to know you I love to snuggle up. I am learning that the world is not such a scary place. I started out frightened of the cars coming down the street when we would go for a walk on the sidewalk, but have learned to ignore them (and now I ignore bikes, and scooters and strollers too!). I love going for walks and have a tendency to pull hard on the leash now that I know how much fun they are.  Playing with other dogs and “wrestling” with my foster sister makes me happy.  When a two year-old human came to visit I ran and hid at first, but after a little while I found out that he was okay, even if he was a little noisy. 

I hope my forever family likes to play, and will continue to help me explore the world.
