I was adopted!

Lovely gal Rosetta (Zetta for short!) is a well mannered 5 year old who is friendly with everyone she meets and is looking for a great family to call her own.

This darling girl came to us through no fault of her own when her owners found they were not able to meet her grooming and exercise needs.

Rosetta used to live on a farm and is accustomed to being around a variety of animals.  She is gentle with cats, chickens, goats and other dogs.  She could happily join a family where there are other animals for her to play with.

Due to heavy matting we were unable to save her coat and she had to be clipped short, unfortunately. 

Zetta is spayed and will be brought up to date on core vaccines.  She is in overall good health although at 152 lbs she definitely needs to drop some weight.  She suffered a minor injury to her knee a few years ago but that healed and she has no mobility issues.  On occasion her leg may tremble, we see this frequently with newfs.   She is an active girl who likes to romp around and does well when she has a chance to burn off some steam.

She knows basic commands although sometimes takes her time to respond -- she does things in her own, sweet time!  Her house manners are good and she is an easy going gal.

Her owners told us she does excitedly pull on leash when she sees other dogs in a playful way, but so far her foster family report that she has been great on leash!

She is being fostered in the Midland, ON area.  Her approved adopters will be required ot pick her up in person.  An adoption donation of $500 will apply.
