Meet Rose

Add to favourites

Rose is a very special girl. She came to us as a stray that was in need of some serious help. She had no ID for us to trace and she was never claimed by anyone. She arrived in our care with a very bad skin condition. She had scratched herself raw in places that and she was terribly uncomfortable.

We had Rose vetted right away to get her some relief from the intense itchiness she was suffering from. The vets realized right away that she had been suffering from allergies that weren’t address for a long time, causing a major secondary skin infection.

Since receiving medical attention, Rose’s skin and coat have hugely improved, revealing her vibrant and playful personality. She delights in engaging with toys and enthusiastically participates in games of tug-of-war with our staff, albeit sometimes with a bit too much gusto, leading to occasional toy destruction. She also loves our outdoor baby pool on a hot day! Her splishing and splashing will provide you endless entertainment

While Rose has encountered many dogs during her time with us and generally tolerates their presence, she may react defensively if approached aggressively. Her compatibility with cats remains unknown, but her inclination to chase may suggest a less-than-ideal match.

To manage her allergies, Rose is currently on a fish based diet and requires ongoing medication (Cytopoint monthly injections) prescribed by our veterinarians. We are hopeful that her allergies and skin condition can be managed with less medication overtime now that she is back on track. Despite these needs, Rose’s affectionate nature and lively spirit make her a cherished companion for the right family willing to provide her with the care and attention she deserves.
