Reaction to New People: Rosie is shy but curious to new people and will sniff and lick them.
Kid Friendly: Rosie has been around several kids now and has done pretty well. With her skittishness she would do best around kids 7 and older.
Training: Rosie knows her name, sit, and walks well on a leash (she still gets a little shy about a leash being put on her though).
Grooming Needs: Rosie has a standard husky coat which will require frequent thorough brushing. You should aim for at least once a week, and more when she is blowing her coat, typically twice a year.
Fence: Rosie is a flight risk due to her past, therefore a fence will be required for her.
Solo or Siblings: Rosie follows the lead of her foster siblings, and will need that guidance in her forever home.
From the Foster: Rosie is a very sweet gal! She came to us when her owner unexpectedly passed away. She lived outside so she learned how to be an indoor dog, but now loves it, especially her favorite spot on the couch. She loves being tucked close to her toys, blankets and in her kennel. She is very timid and is usually on alert. Rosie will need lots of time to adjust to change when she goes to her forever home. With lots of love, training and patience we are sure she will be an amazing dog! Rosie is going to strive best in a home with another dog to help show her the ropes of dog life and a fenced in yard to keep her safe as she is a flight risk. Both are requirements for Rosie.
