Rosie, dog or magpie?
Large Female Greyhound Dog
You would be forgiven for thinking Rosie is a magpie disguised as a dog. With her glossy black and white splashed fur and her tendency to collect items to store in her ‘nest, Rosie is only one beak away from having a true identity crisis.
When she’s not collecting toys and burying them under layers of blankets on her bed, Rosie spends most of the time snoozing the day away or seeking out pats from humans. She’s very relaxed, only experiencing bursts of energy on her two daily walks. The rest of the time she is very low maintenance and takes the concept of ‘chilling’ very seriously.
She does take a bit of time to trust people, but with some patience she opens up to reveal a sensitive heart that will leave a lasting mark on whoever she meets. It is important to take things slowly with Rosie, as she is naturally cautious and alert in new situations. But her time in foster care has shown how quickly she learns to adjust to new situations and we expect her to settle into her new home in no time.
Rosie has a lovely, glossy, black coat with white tipped toes and gentle, inquisitive eyes. She gets along well with other (large) dogs and would like having another companion to live with. She would manage in an only-dog household, but would prefer to live with someone who is often home to keep her company. She’s still learning the rules of dog-playtime but respects boundaries when she knows she’s gotten too excitable. Her one aim in life is to please those around her, and will become quite attached to those who show they care.
Rosie is not cat friendly. No small dog applications please.
