Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Rosie. She is, we believe, an Anatolian Shepherd mix. She weighs 45lbs and most likely will get to 50lbs when fully grown. She has a short-med length soft fur coat. Rosie was found with her brother roaming, having been dumped by her adopters. This girl is extremely sweet and gentle. Though she is in the adolescent stage, she is very well behaved. She is housebroken and paper trained. She should be crated at this stage when the family is not home as she is in the chewing stage. She is one of the lucky ones, who gets to sleep on her foster parent's bed. Rosie was recently adopted but a few days later needed to be returned as the resident dog played far to rough for her. He would bite her leg and tail and cry. She loves playing with other socialized dogs but not overbearing ones. In the beginning, she chased the resident cat but was fine with the cat on day 2. Rosie is a big eater and is still on puppy food for another month. She is fed 1 1/4 cups twice daily. She loves all kinds of toys and will play with them for long periods. She should be in a large size crate at this point. This gal is very affectionate and gentle with all people. Rosie gives lots of gentle kisses. She loves children, but remember, she is still a child herself. Children 6 and up would be ideal. Rosie rides very well in the car and is knows how to sit on command. She will need more work on walks as she came from a very rural area but with a body harness and the fact she is food motivated will make the process much easier. The ideal home for Rosie is one where there are family members available to her most of the time. Another well-socialized dog would be great. She is a bit shy at the beginning so a home that isn't too active with children running about would be best. Rosie is spayed, fully vaccinated, 4DX tested negative. A fully fenced yard and a history of compliance are mandatory to apply for our Rosie.
