And now a few words from me:
Hello my name is Rosie and I’m a spunky, fun girl. I love to run around and get lots of exercise. Because I’m very small, sometimes I feel the need to assert my authority with other dogs and I can be bossy. You see, I like other dogs but I was never taught to play nicely with them or share my toys. Despite these issues I love being with my humans, so I’m never too far away from them. When you call my name you can be sure I’ll come running. And I’ll be sure to alert you to any strangers. Would you like to meet me for a cuddle?
And now a few words from my foster family:
Rosie is tiny in stature and a Chiweenie through and through. She loves people, and although she can be a little apprehensive at first, she is sure to warm up very quickly, hoping for affection and kisses. She exhibits resource-guarding behaviour with toys and treats. She would do best as an only dog because of her dominant character, or with a dog who has just the right temperament. Rosie enjoys playing catch and will play for hours. At first she would pull when walking on a lead but she’s doing much better. She is very clean in the house, and will do her business outside or on a pee pad. Rosie needs to be crate-trained and in an enclosure when her humans are out. She must not be allowed on the big bed. Her new owners must be committed to providing her with boundaries, structure, routine and exercise, and only then, cuddles. A family with older respectful kids only would be best, and definitely no cats.
