Rosie needs a caretaker or foster! Won't you consider helping her get a new start?
ROSIE is currently in boarding due to a lack of qualified fosters. She is a beautiful and petite bi-color GSD with plenty of youngster pep and pizazz! Rosie is a staff favorite at her boarding facility because she is an absolute dream to walk and in general is just a well behaved girl! Sweet, Smart, Strong, responsive to training, loves attention, and needs boundaries. She's looking for an active family to give her (a) a good life, and (b) the training and rules she needs.
BACKGROUND Rosie was left at a shelter by her owners. Her age indicates she was a Christmas puppy in 2019.
TEMPERAMENT / BEHAVIOR
Rosie is a staff favorite here at the boarding facility because she is an absolute dream to walk and in general is just a well-behaved girl! She was experiencing some kennel stress when she first got here, and from time to time gets a bit antsy and does spin in her run. However, the staff have noticed a big decrease in her kennel stress with and increase in really long walks everyday plus their other regular outings.
She knows basic commands: sit, down, and shake. And she walks in a PERFECT heel! She gets a little excited when she sees squirrels getting close but corrects easily with just a gentle leash tug or even just asking her to keep walking verbally.
She mostly keeps her run clean and only has a pee accident every once in a while, but it is few and far between that she has an accident now that she knows her schedule. She rides well in a car and is not destructive. She keeps her dog bed intact and chews on only her toys in her run. She does great for bathing and even lets staff blow dry her. She also is calm and well behaved for nail trims.
Rosie does well with other dogs as long as they are properly introduced and they don't come at her with too much energy right off the bat. She needs a moment to warm up but once she does, she enjoys playing. She likes to be the boss and does best with male playmates who let her be in charge and can take correction as she doesn't like when dogs jump all over her and she will let them know if they are being too much. She has done well with females as long as they are fairly mellow and give her space. She has met two small male dogs, both under 20 lbs. She did great with them; she sniffed them and pretty much went and did her own thing.
She is polite when meeting new people, she will let people pet her but she does not always show a ton of interest right away until she gets to know you a bit. But on the bright side to her being a little aloof she does not jump up on anyone or do any of those rude behaviors. She is very loving and affectionate once she builds trust.
MEDICAL Up-to-date on all vaccines, has a current rabies tag, is neutered/spayed and has been microchipped. Has no known medical issues.
