Rosie is a tiny dancer princess, who loves to snuggle, and shows the self-assurance of her breed. Rosie would love to live with her best friend – you – so you can do everything and go everywhere together. She wants to be included in your life and, luckily, she doesn’t mind if you have other friends too, human or canine. Rosie will happily sleep in her own bed, beside yours; and she won’t bother you until you’re ready to wake up and then she’ll jump up to greet you and the day!
Having lived with multiple small dogs throughout her life, Rosie is confident and at ease with her canine pals. She may be a miniature alpha dog, as she is showing herself to be calmly assertive in her foster home. Rosie is keen on being with her people everywhere around the house but is always happy for others to tag along. She nominally sleeps in her bed in her carer’s bedroom, but has been known to negotiate a change of places with her doggy foster-sibling so she ends up in her carer’s bed.
While she has been well-loved in her past, Rosie’s physical health needs some attention, including some weight gain and dental work, which she will soon undergo. It is not clear whether Rosie is formally house trained, but she is picking up well on household routines and will soon adapt provided she is given sufficient outdoor access. Rosie has no formal training, but like most poodles she is a smart cookie and – with treat training and engagement with her people – is well-placed to learn new skills.
Rosie will do well in a home with kind humans and with one or more doggy pals who are comfortable with her taking the lead. Modest daily exercise and plenty of time with her people will make Rosie a happy girl. You will fall in love with Rosie – her foster carer certainly has!
