About Rosie

Lab / Great Dane
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Rosie is a 65lb, 3 year old 'Pot Cake' dog from Turks & Caicos. We adopted her through North Shore when she was 10 weeks old. She is a very beautiful, shiny, black & white love-able pup, especially when she feels safe with her family. Rosie lives with 2 adults and 6 teens- to young adults (from 14-21). Rosie loves her family (except when they get into her personal space ..eating, or when she is watching out the window and resting). If you enter her personal space, she will growl first and will bite if u keep annoying her. Rosie otherwise loves to cuddle on ur lap, play frisbee, run in the yard, and is super affectionate. She has learned how to stay, sit, wait, and 'leave it.' Rosie is great on a leash and thrives on routine (even creating her own routine). Rosie presents with fear aggression. She is very fearful of other dogs (although has proven successful alongside other dogs in the past), and Is especially fearful of strangers, particularly men. Rosie will express her fear via barking and hair up on her back. She has been taught to 'leave it,' and will sometimes come back to her owner for reassurance (so long as the stranger does not approach the house or her space). For safety of those around her, Rosie is currently training with a remote collar. Rosie has never bit a stranger, but will bark and growl excessively at them (those entering the house). Any noise, or movement (standing up) while a friend is visiting..mostly men or young children), will provoke fear, barking and hair up on back. We have tried all we can to take care of Rosie, as a family. My children love her. However, it has become very difficult to have family over and keep Rosie from getting fearful and aggressive. If Rosie could 'quarantine' with her family, she would be the happiest and affectionate dog. She doesn't like surprises! Rosie would work best with an adult female (maybe a trainer?) who has had experience with fear aggressive dogs. Rosie is good with my husband (the only male who she is submissive to). Unfortunately, my sons have experienced the brunt of her dominance or fear aggression. Due to her fearfulness, Rosie should not be around children.
