All about Rose
This sweet 1-year-old gal is a real catch!  Friendly, well mannered, gentle and lovable as can be, Rose will be the perfect addition to a loving family.

She knows basic commands, walks nicely on leash, has lovely house manners, and is an all-around wonderful gal.  Sure, she has her moments of puppy silliness, but she is eager to please and quick to learn.

Rose gets along with well-mannered dogs and could happily join a home with dogs, cats or other critters.  She is gentle and friendly and such a good girl!  Here she is with her foster sister Peggy (Rose on the left, Peggy on the right.)

Rose came to us when her owners were not able to meet her health needs.  They made the loving decision to surrender her to our program so that we could get to the bottom of her recurring bladder infections and get her on the road to good health.

Rose is currently on medication to clear an infection and we will be having surgery performed to correct her inverted vulva that we suspect might be the cause of the recurring infections.  Once she is healed from the surgery we will monitor to see if that solved the issue, otherwise, she will likely need to be on prescription food to maintain urinary health.  Updates to follow. 

To be considered for adopting a dog through Newf Friends please submit a completed application, which can be found on the CONTACT US/FORMS page. Before completing an application or emailing us with questions, please review our FAQ page.  As outlined on our FAQ page, applicants who do not meet our adoption requirements (ie. no fenced play area, living in an apartment building, having young children, etc.) will not be considered -- please do not email us asking us to make an exception.
