Rose could blossom into a playful lady
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 when 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 rehoming centre in Harvil Road, Harefield, said: “Rose pulled on all our heart strings when she arrived at the rehoming 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.”
