Beautiful, athletic, energetic, powerful, loving. These words all describe Rosie.
Rosie has been at the Coastal Humane Society in Brunswick since mid-March, but before that she was in a shelter in Florida.
Shelter living is taking a toll on this girl. She is desperate for a home of her own.
Rosie is a Boxer/Terrier mix, less than a year and a half old, and full of energy.
Rosie has an adorable, quirky behavior that I haven’t seen anything quite like before — when she’s not sure what you want her to do, she does a bizarre somersault/twirl/roll move. It really needs to be caught on video.
This is not the move, but when the move is over she rolls around on her back.
Rosie has something she’d like to get off her chest. Yes, she did happen to be in the New England Patriots locker room on January 18th. And yes, her nickname might be The Deflator.
But she doesn’t see what the big deal is. She’s happy to deflate balls for any team. She finds them much easier to play with that way. She would have helped the Colts out if they had just asked her.
She loves, loves, LOVES to play ball. I didn’t try her with a Frisbee, but I can picture her making spectacular leaps and dives.
Rosie cannot live with cats. And she’s selective with dogs. She wants to be the top dog. She does best with calm, submissive dogs.
She loves kids, though! She was raised in a home with 2 children under 8.
Rosie would make an awesome running or hiking partner, but she is not the type of dog you can hike off leash with.
Rosie is super-athletic, but she’s also a lady. Like most girls, she enjoys a tutu and a crown every now and then.
(She also likes to play ball in a tutu and roll in the dirt in a tutu).
Being cooped up in the shelter is making Rosie more anxious as the days go by. She really needs a place to call home.
Could your home be her home? Wouldn’t you love to see this face every day?
Rosie was part of the “Paws and Stripes” program in Florida where she learned some basic obedience.
It’s a program that teams up jail inmates with shelter dogs and they teach and socialize the dogs.
She could use a refresher course, but mostly she just needs to be tired out and loved. A tired dog is a happy dog. Rosie is also housetrained!If you would love an energetic, fun dog, and you have an active lifestyle that can include her, you should go meet Rosie. Spend some time outside with her at the shelter and you’re sure to fall in love with her. You can reach the shelter at (207) 725-5051.
