Meet Rosey (20230316-01)

Foster Comments:
Rosey is a very smart dog who is EXTREMELY food motivated. This makes learning tricks very easy! She has learned: sit, stay, lay down, spin, shake, pray. Also if you drop food on the floor, she will wait and give you eye contact and wait for you to say ‘okay’ before eating it. Her favourite foods: bananas, cheese, blueberries, ANY DOG TREATS, frozen strawberries, frozen peas, peanut butter. She loves having treats or PB put in her Kong and then frozen.
Rosey loves to be outside playing a good game of fetch, tug of war, popping bubbles or just to run in an enclosed space. She enjoys have a job to do (such as fetch) and gets enjoyment out of completing her job. Her recall is getting better, but isn't consistent yet. She is crate trained and sleeps in her crate or on her favourite chair at night. She does enjoy sleeping on the bed too, but can be a bed hog.
Rosey can be a nervous dog and would do best in a quieter household with no young children. She doesn't like loud noises or sudden movements, or strange sounds (like crying) however is fine with fireworks and thunderstorms. When she gets scared, she can jump or bark and sometimes when she gets excited she can nip. She would benefit from an adopter who has a consistent environment/routine and has experience with reactive dogs. Her new family will need to continue her training and she responds to a bubbly yet firm personality,
