Meet Rose. Not all of our rescues are from puppy mills or backyard breeders. Rose is from a show breeder and has champion bloodlines. Despite this, Rose has not led a happy and pampered life. Her first owner broke the contract with her breeder by giving her away when they no longer could care for her. When the second owner had no time for her, they gave her away once again. Her third owner put her up for sale on an online classified site, because they were in an apartment and could not have her barking anymore. This is where her breeder discovered her. The breeder contacted BRQ because they had no room to take her back in themselves.
We were told that Rose has mild separation anxiety (totally normal for a young dog that has been moved three times in 2 years!) and was good with other dogs. Luckily we had a new foster home ready to take her in. When we got Rose in we discovered that she had been *severely* neglected. Our vet was appalled at how skinny she is, her nails are way overgrown and some were even split right up into her toes because no one had cared to keep them trimmed. The next thing we discovered is that Rose is actually not good with other dogs - this really put us in a difficult position because our only available foster home already has two dogs. After her evaluation with our canine behaviourists, Rose will be looking for a foster home with no other pets. Rose has not only been physically neglected but she is also a very nervous girl and needs to learn to trust humans again. Therefore we are also looking for a foster home with no young children, a foster home that has time to devote to rehabilitating Rose with the support of our professional positive reinforcement dog trainers.
