SPECIAL COVID NOTICE: We realize that many of you are home from work right now and adopting a dog seems like a great idea.

Which, it may be! Or may not. Please think about what your life will be like once things go back to “normal.” Will you have enough time each day to dedicate to a dog, based on the dog’s individual needs? If you are looking for a dog to socialize with kids, other dogs, etc., please do not submit an adoption application, as we do not recommend that for any dog. Nor do we recommend dog parks or dog daycare. Visit the resources section of our website for more info on those topics.

Please note that none of our foster homes have children, so we have no idea how any of our dogs would do living in a home with kids and/or if they would enjoy it.

As for Rosie:

Check out her video:

Rosie is indeed the cutest, squishiest girl you’ll meet. When she first came to our rescue, she was a bit shut down from being in the shelter, but has very quickly settled into her foster home. In fact, her foster parents, who have fostered a ton of dogs over the years, are absolutely head over heals in love with sweet, sweet Rosie the floppy, cuddly, silly, smiley ham.

Rosie needs a quiet home that will be patient with a soft, sensitive dog and will not be pushy with her. When she is provided with this, she is nothing but a love. She is very well behaved, housebroken and great in her crate. She is perfectly content to lounge around the house or yard with you and keep herself busy with her toys.

Rosie, like many young dogs, does require exercise and enjoys going for walks. She can be a bit of an overexcited, giant puppy when she sees other dogs, so her adopter will need to be able-bodied enough to walk a big, strong dog. Since having a proper introduction, she has enjoyed playing with the other dog in her foster home.

Rosie is estimated to be about 3 years old, but really, that’s just a guess. If you are one of those people who “needs” a dog under two years old, then so be it, she can be two. If you are one of those people who “needs” a dog over 5 years old, so be it, she can be 5.5.

Please note that the first step in our process is the adoption application found on our website www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org. Rosie is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated.
