And now a few words from me:
Rose and I are very happy in our foster home. We love to cuddle on top of the bed with our foster family, but they won’t let us in the bed! There are lots of good smells in the garden, like squirrels and chipmunks. We chase each other around and around in the garden. This is how Rose gets her exercise. I go for a walk almost every day but Rose does not like the leash so she stays home and waits for me. When we are good we get treats! Are you looking for darling duo? We’d love to meet you!
And now a few words from my foster family:
Rose and Leila are a beautiful, lovable pair. They stay fairly close to one another. They are both well trained, but Rose likes to test the boundaries from time to time. She responds well to consistent training. Rose does have some anxiety issues, which is typically when she has accidents. Being very calm with her helps a great deal. When she first came to me she refused to be leashed. However she has responded well to leash training and will continue to improve if her adoptive family is willing to continue with the training. These two sweet girls have lots of love to give and will make a fabulous addition to a loving family!
