Dog Rescue Stories: Rosie Turned Her Mom Into a ‘Crazy Dog Lady’

Proper POW positivelywoof_belowtitle

By Jarissa Aquinde, Positively Woof Rescue and Adoption Story EditorIn late January, Rosie’s forever parents were exploring their new suburb when they stumbled across Animal Welfare League Queensland. They decided to go in and say hi to all the cats and dogs. When they entered the kennel, all the dogs began jumping and barking.. all but one! Rosie sat quietly and gave them her biggest smile! Her mom wasn’t a ‘dog person’ but she melted her mom’s heart! They snapped a picture of Rosie and left to continue exploring their new area. Rosie’s mom’s heart was heavy and she felt like crying, which was extremely out of character for her.Rosie was all her forever parents talked about that afternoon and the next day at breakfast, Rosie’s mom caught her dad looking at the picture of her. They decided to visit again and they ended up signing papers to foster her for three weeks while they considered adoption.Rosie’s humans quickly fell in love and her mom was constantly snapping photos when she had the idea of creating an Instagram account for her (@ring_around_miss_rosie). Shortly after, they went back to the AWLQ and formally adopted Rosie. The AWLQ’s support didn’t end once they took Rosie to her forever home – the AWLQ are more than happy to give her parents advice regarding her behavior and training techniques, so she can become a confident and happy dog.Unfortunately, Rosie’s parents don’t know much about her history, as she came into the Animal Welfare League through the pound. She would often cower when people would make sudden movements, so they suspect that she may have had a violent past. She suffers from separation anxiety and cries when she can’t see her mom and dad. They’ve been helping her through it and she’s come a long way! Other than that, Rosie is a very happy girl! She loves to play in the yard, go for walks, explore new places, snuggle on the couch and EATING! She’ll chew anything and everything! She actually ate through air-conditioning cables the day before her parents adopted her, which coincided with a heatwave across Queensland!Most of Rosie’s parents friends are still in shock that they now have a furbaby, but she flipped a switch in her forever mom and turned her into a crazy dog lady! She’s brought so much laughter and happiness into their lives and they couldn’t imagine life without her.
