My story

My story

In August 2023, when the specialist from Pack visited the Wugu Animal Shelter for assessment, Rose's unique temperament caught the attention of the evaluator. While other dogs were barking in alert, Rose was patiently waiting in her cage. This allowed her to pass the evaluation and enter Pack Prep School. Rose's paws had previously been injured, with the middle two toes missing, letting her constantly throw the "ROCK!!" gesture, resembling a rock star.

Upon arriving at the facility, Rose exuded a full-fledged celebrity aura. For some reason, other dogs seemed to enjoy playing with her. Due to her intelligence and obedience, Rose quickly learned basic commands and has adapted well to her foster family. Everyone praises her adaptability! This sweet and gentle dog is eagerly waiting for someone to give her the opportunity to become the best family member.

Rose

Personality

Rose has a Western-style coat and physique. She possesses a gentle and delicate personality, appearing introverted and shy. Her interactions with people take time to develop, and she tends to be nervous, especially when outdoors. However, she noticeably feels more comfortable indoors. Rose is cautious and quiet, exploring her surroundings upon entering a new indoor environment. Eventually, she finds a safe place to rest. If approached gently, she readily accepts pets, and she quickly gets along well with other dogs.

To foster a closer bond with Rose, it's important to take the initiative. Actively pet and cuddle her, frequently call her name, and soon enough, Rose will become increasingly friendly. The reserved Rose looks forward to meeting a gentle soul like yours, and in return, you'll gain an adorable and warm little companion.

Low High
Foster Family Says

As Rose grows closer to us, her adorable side begins to emerge. She joyfully greets you when you open the door, and sometimes, as you pass by, she stands up to sneakily lick your hand. When she's happy, she may stand up for a moment or come over to see what you're doing, then shyly return to her spot. However, whenever we move around, she promptly stands up, happily paying attention to our activities.

Medical History

My health has been checked:

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Microchipped
  • Vaccinated
  • Regular Worming Treatment

Her right front paw has experienced an injury, resulting in the loss of the middle two toes. However, there are no other medical issues.
My Behavior

My Behavior

Rose tends to be cautious and wary when first introduced to unfamiliar people. Loud movements or noises can easily make her nervous, leading to behaviors like tail-tucking, fleeing, or whimpering. When initially petting her, it's important to be gentle, and with time and familiarity, she becomes more accepting of sudden touches.
