Good luck on your new family member. I hope everything works out for you. It is so great that you are taking her in and giving her a second chance.

Hi there, Just reading this thread for the first time today, it sounds as though Rosie has won the Lotto and your family too. And you where totally correct about her picking up on your sons calm energy and yours as well ( the apple does not fall far from the tree). Please post some pic's of Rosie she sounds like a real sweetheart. Teaching recall consistency and patience are key, keep working with her it will come.

A dog's heat cycle can last three weeks to a month - make sure she doesn't have any 'visitors'. Spaying is not usually done during a heat cycle as it can be a little more risky for the dog. Suggest you contact your vet for advice on when to spay.



It is not the destination but the journey that matters. Thank you Charlie, for the journey, it was truly amazing!
Miss you so much, every day.

Hi there
Back from the vet Rosie is in good health ,a little under weight but nothing to be concerned about , a good thing really as we intend on getting her spayed , one thing I need advice on is at feeding time she just tends to graze ,never eats the lot , is always returning to her food she gets 2 walks a day but is quite content to sleep all the time ....
Any ideas ?
