Meet Rose. A rather nervous little pooch who has transformed the lives of her adoptive parents. Rose suffered quite spectacularly at the hands of the humans she encountered before ending up at a shelter and as such she has required a huge amount of patience to bring her out of her shell.
Rose’s Mom was grieving the sudden death of her 12 year old Yorkie when she adopted her, and she told me that having Rose as a new and constant companion eased her sadness and helped her come to terms with her loss.
(I’ve had a few rescue dog parents tell me that they adopted the dog that they really needed at the time, not necessarily the one they went looking for).
Rose has discovered that some humans are nice and now enjoys living in the lap of luxury with two doggy siblings and two humans to sleep under the covers with every night.
Rose was adopted from Wetnose – www.wetnose.org.za
