If they were giving out prizes for cuteness, guess who would have won first place? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Rosie, a 2 years old Chihuahua mix from Des Moines, Iowa. This beautiful petite gal is spayed and vaccinated and ready to go to her furever home. Owing to her ruff past, she’d do best in a quiet, adult-only home where she would be the only pet in the family.

Rosie’s Tale

When Rosie came to the rescue, she had such severe skin infection that her whole body was covered in sores and open wounds. Luckily, with a lot of love and the right medical care, Rosie managed to make a complete recovery- and she’s now completely healthy and ready for adoption.

While a sweet and affectionate pooch, Rosie is initially shy and can be very fearful, especially when meeting new men. However, once she relaxes and gets to know you a bit, she turns into a true cuddle bug that loves nothing more than to be by your side at all times. On the other hand getting treats is a close second to getting your attention, so if you want her to warm up to you, you know what to do! Rosie can be a bit possessive with her toys, food, and humans, so she might not be too thrilled with the idea of sharing her new home with another pet. She is fine with other dogs that have a similar temperament, but would prefer to be the only fur child in an adult-only family.

If you have the patience to win over this lovely little pooch, you’ll earn a friend for life. In case Rosie stole your heart and you think you can offer what she needs, contact Animal Rescue League of Iowa for more information on how to adopt her
