Fu­ture look­ing rosy now for aban­doned Staffie

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

WHEN three-year-old Stafford­shire bull ter­rier Rose was found cold and ema­ci­ated in a gar­den, her fu­ture looked bleak.

The blue Staffie had been aban­doned by her own­ers in east London while they went on hol­i­day.

For­tu­nately, she was found by a lo­cal dog war­den and taken to Dogs Trust Hare­field, where the team named her Rose to re­flect her ‘beau­ti­ful na­ture’.

The char­ity says she is grow­ing in con­fi­dence after her or­deal and has be­come a hit with the staff, who are nurs­ing her back to health.

They are now look­ing for some­one to adopt the adorable mutt.

Emma Tay­lor, as­sis­tant man­ager at the re-hom­ing cen­tre in Harvil Road, Hare­field, said: “Rose pulled on all our heart strings when she ar­rived at the re-hom­ing cen­tre and we’re cer­tain that she’ll have the same ef­fect on po­ten­tial adopters.

“She is a re­ally friendly girl who came to us a bit wary, but is com­ing out of her shell slowly but surely.

“She would love a new fam­ily that can of­fer her a fel­low ca­nine friend to show her the ropes and help her set­tle into her new home.

“After all the re­cent drama, Rose is look­ing for a calm but ac­tive home with own­ers that can keep her on her toes but re­spect her need for her own space.

“While not the big­gest fan of play­time, we feel that sadly this is most likely be­cause she hasn’t had a play­mate be­fore.

“So if her new own­ers are will­ing to test the wa­ter we feel there is the po­ten­tial that they might still have a play­ful lady on their hands.

“In the right home we are sure that Rose will ‘blos­som’ into a great ad­di­tion to any lucky fam­ily.”
