Meet Rose! This beautiful girl is truly just a sweetheart with people! She is roughly 7 months old and currently around 45-50 pounds. She looks to be a lab/black mouth cur/pit mix. Rose was found with her sister, Lily, abandoned in rural Ephrata alongside a county road. We aren't sure what her story is, but she likely witnessed her sister being victimized by a larger dog or possibly a coyote, as Lily had scabbed-over canine bite marks all over her neck when rescued. Initially, both girls were terrified of other dogs but warmed up to confident and well-socialized adult dogs once they felt safe. However, Rose still has significant fear anxiety around other dogs and can become very aggressive towards dogs (fear reactive) when scared and put in area that she cannot retreat from. **She has NEVER been aggressive towards adults or children, even when scared. ** She has shown NO fear reaction towards adults or children at all. ** Cats are an unknown. She has been exposed while crated, with no obvious aggression. However, open access to cats has not been tested, as we do not know what a feline fear response would elicit from her. Rose definitely thinks she is the boss when it comes to her sister and they have been separated. She does great with confident, well-mannered dog(s) that will welcome her into their pack and show her stability. In fact, she is kenneled with two canine foster aunties who she absolutely adores. However, for adoption purposes, this would be tough to determine a fit such as this. Rose has started getting some training techniques to help reduce her fear response, however, this is a process that will take time and consistency. For this reason, the best fit for Rose will likely be a home where she is the only pet, as well as a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time. She is not at a point where she can be taken for walks in public areas, and dog parks are an absolute 'no' for her. Even submissive, non-aggressive dogs can trigger her fear anxiety. BUT...this girl LOVES people - males, females, kids. Very smart, very loving, and a quick learner. She is working on leash training, knows her name, is learning the word 'no,' is curious, and gives the best hugs. This little treasure needs a family to grow up with. She is an active breed and will need room to exercise, companionship and mental stimulation to be at her best and happiest.
