Meet adoptable deaf dog Rosie who is looking for a loving forever home.

From her rescue advocate: Rosie was left tied to a pole by her original owners. She was placed in a shelter and then taken in by Halfway There Rescue out of SC, near Charlotte, NC. Rosie was in foster care for several months until adopted in late November ’22. Unfortunately, Rosie and her adoptive family’s other deaf dog are not a good personality match long-term. She is still in home with this family at this time in Asheville NC, but is in need of a safe environment and home for the long-term. She is crate and potty trained. She should be fed separately from other dogs. Rosie loves dogs and playing, but has difficultly reading social cues from other dogs and a difficult time backing down. For this reason, she may not be a good fit for other dogs in home. She often tries to engage in play beyond what another dog is comfortable with, which can create problems, and has in the adopters home leading to the devastating decision to rehome.

Rosie is smart, spunky, mischievous, and so affectionate and loving. She is very high energy and requires nice long walks multiple times a day along with one on one playing attention and/or ample time playing outside, she loves to fetch and run around. A fenced yard for her to roam and play would preferable. Rosie is smart and a fast learner, she knows basic commands including sit, stay, down, no, good girl/yes, come, and shake. She is very treat motivated indoors and is willing to learn new tricks.

Rosie is a funny girl that loves playing tug or fetch and actually hides her bone around the house if given one. She enjoys going for long walks but still needs some work on the leash, waist leashing is recommended for this small but mighty girl. At 38 pounds, Rosie is a great size and has quite a bit of muscle. Rosie is loving and wants to greet everyone she sees. She will kiss you to death if you let her and loves to snuggle up under a blanket with you on the couch.

Rosie would thrive in a home with a yard for easy access to play and burn off energy or in home with active parents willing to go on long walks or runs. She is likely best suited as an only dog as she continues to work on her ability to give other dogs space when necessary. However, Rosie lived with foster’s 2 larger dogs with no issues. That said, a non-reactive dog who can tolerate her energy and play would be required.
