Rosie went to her potential new family a week ago Saturday after she was released from crate rest. Her new family spent a week with her to ensure things were going to work out with the current crew. We are happy to report that things worked out great and Rosie has a new family to call her own.
So let me introduce to you our newest family member.
Rosie "Smiley" Jeakins
Adopted March 7, 2013
Rosie and Bella the first night here
Who goes there
After about 4 days here
Yep, I have found my home
We just were not sure how Bella would do with a new one being added to the pack as she has some reservations with other dogs when she meets them in public. Well she had that same reaction when she meet Rosie for the first time, but we worked through it and we are happy to report that she know initiates play with her and things are going good with everyone. Of course, when you adopt one from a shelter or rescue sometimes not all the traits of the dog are disclosed, not because the rescue choose not to but the owner that surrendered them failed to disclose Rosie's fear for men. It is taking a little longer for Rosie to warm up to the hubby then we had thought. Of course, he doesn't give up easy and each day gets a little bit better with her accepting him as not a "threat" to her. She growls a little when he is around but he does not stop him from petting her. We have noticed her fear of him is a little more when he has a ball cap on. She has not showed aggression or ever attempted to bite him, just a snarl growl and he has decided it is her way of saying "hello" to him.
We look forward to sharing more Rosie stories with you as she is just beginning to come out of her shell.
