    My family and I visited Rosie last Saturday. I have been to see her a few times on my own but this is the first time I brought the whole family and this was my daughters first trip to the animal shelter. She loved seeing all the dogs especially Rosie. Rosie to her was a hyper big Sasha I think. Anyway everytime I see Rosie I am baffled as to why she is still there. The shelter mentioned something about the economy and people just aren't adopting right now. Which is odd because the economy didn't stop the lab puppy, or the bull mastiff puppy, or the 2 hound puppies, or the whole litter of schnauzer pups from all being adopted in less than a week. What it comes down to is she is not a puppy. She is still very much a puppy but adult size.

    The shelter is pretty protective of her and do want just the right home for her. I think they want her to have a home with a fenced in yard though they said that that might change if the right owners come along without a fenced in yard. They feel she needs an owner that can devote a lot of time to her and her training. She is a very good dog but has had little training and is very much a puppy in an adult dogs body. I think they might be looking for a single person or a couple with no kids or grown kids that would have all the time and commitment to devote for her. Not that they wouldn't adopt to a family with kids becausr no doubt she will be fantastic with kids. They just want her in a home that is willing and can commit the time she needs them to.

    Rosie's adoption with definately be on a case by case basis. As you can see above. There is no way to be sure of what her perfect fit is and the shelter has a right to be choosy with her. They have had her most of her life. PERSONALLY, I feel Rosie needs to be with an experienced dog owner and particularly an owner very familiar and experienced with the APBT breed. If you can help her please help. All you have to do is get the word out.

    If you would like more info on Rosie please feel free to PM me. She has lived in that shelter long enough she deserves to finally go home.

    I had the opportunity to spend some real quality time with Rosie this weekend. She is a real spitfire that one. The time I spent with her one on one gave me a better idea as to what she needs as far as training and what kind of owner she needs. In my personal opinion (and my opinion in no way reflects the opinion of the shelter I am sure) Rosie needs a home with a young or older stronger man who is unattached or an older couple with grown kids or a younger couple not planning on starting a family right now. and has the time, energy, and patience to give this dog the training she needs. She needs a strong leader, someone who won't back down. This is a very strong dog and she is very strong willed. Most of all she is a puppy in an adult dogs body. At this point I'm going to say no kids under 14 or 15. I think she will be great with kids once she is trained. But right now she is too strong and hyper. She knocked me down way to easy and she proceded to pin down the ad ttendent that was assisting with our visit and cover herr with kisses so definately no small kids until she is trained . Rosie needs to be with an experienced pit bull owner. I'm afraid Rosies only best chance is to get into a foster home. She needs consistency and the shelter admits they can't give that to her. I fear without a foster home that can give her a routine and consiistent training Rosie will NEVER be adopted.

    Wish I had good news to report. But sweet Rosie is still sitting in that shelter in a cage waiting for her forever home. She has been there longer than any other dog there. Infact she has been there most of her life now. I pray every day she finds a home but I'm losing hope.

    I think it's time for everyone to pray for Rosie to find a home now, God knows what she needs.

    you have got to be kidding me this poor girl is STILL at the shelter after this long??? SBTLOVE can you send me some info on this girl, I work with a few rescues here in East TN. Le

    Info sent. She is going on two years at the shelter. No one is interested in her. And the limited shelters that I am involved with, are too full and don't have enough funding to take her. The rescue I got my dog from which would have been a great option for her was an all foster based program. Unfortunuately when I came to them about pulling Rosie, they are already stretched to thin. Too many dogs and not enough fosters and not enough funding. :( My heart is breaking over Rosie.

    Ugh 2 years?! That is so sad.. poor girl. :no2: I hope she finds a home soon. :(

    Afraid so. At this point I guess just making sure she stays out there. And if anyone on PBC is interested in her info and location and may be able to help. PM me. There has got to be a rescue or someone out there is this world that would be able to help this sweet girl. I'm not sure why I'm so intent on helping this dog other than we really connected, I'm her friend now. And as her friend I can't let her down.

    Hey SBTlove I have someone interested in fostering her to at least get your out of the shelter but its here in knoxville, tn. Its a potential foster to adopt home they just want to help get her out and work on training with her if its possible to do this.
