Rosie is now ready for adoption. Here is her foster-mum’s write-up… Rosie is a 3-year-old golden retriever who has come from a breeder. She has made huge progress since arriving 3 weeks ago. She was unsocialised and not used to a home environment or having daily walks. Fast forward 3 weeks and she loves her walks, loves the home life and is generally a happy girl - worlds away from where we began. I have been getting her used to walking on a lead and if in a confined space, off the lead also. She is fine walking but is still quite jumpy/nervous should there be a loud noise if she isn't expecting it. She is very wary of other people/pushchairs and screaming children. Due to me trying to get her used to walks, she hasn't visited any busy parks or public spaces. In the home, she is now very confident in our house. At first she didn't want to socialise. Now she moves from room to room, plays with toys and happily sits in the garden. I am certain that within a few months/a year she will be completely relaxed and like any other dog. Her current bad habits are that she eats like nothing I have ever seen!! We have given her a slow feeder bowl. Her other bad habit is chewing!! Cushions, shoes and really anything that she can 😆 this tends to happen anytime she is left on her own. Her personality is amazing. She is so happy and content here. She will make an amazing companion. She is in foster with another dog and has recently begun to play with him, so having another dog in her forever home would be really nice for Rosie. Rosie would ideally suit a retired/home-working couple, a quiet home and no children/teenage+ due to her nervous nature. A rural/semi-rural location would be perfect for Rosie. Rosie will need to stay local to Derby, Nottingham, Chesterfield or Burton so we can arrange and pay for her to be spayed in line with her last season.
