Rosie is a sweet,  about 5-year-old chihuahua mix and weighs 9.5 pounds.  The vet that did her dental says her teeth look like she may be younger.   She came to Marden’s Ark Dog Tales as a very shy and skittish stray.  Since then, Rosie has opened right up and wants to give everyone all her love!

Rosie is a little hesitant on a leash but she’s improving. She is mostly house trained and only has accidents if she isn’t let out when it’s time to wake up in the morning.  Therefore, she would do best on a schedule. She is also crate trained.  Rosie does well with other small dogs but, she hasn’t been around many other sizes of dogs. She can be reactive when she becomes scared or startled so she would do best in a home without small children. She may require some patience if she becomes startled, but she’s worth it.

Rosie absolutely loves people and getting attention! She will make sure you keep petting her by nudging your hand non-stop. Her tail never seems to stop wagging and she always has a smile on her face when she’s around people. She has quite the personality and likes to army crawl across the floor. You’re guaranteed to get a good laugh in when you’re around Rosie. She doesn’t seem to have much interest in dog toys aside from chew sticks and does not bark much unless another dog in the house is barking. She would make a great addition to a family and can’t wait to meet her forever home.

Rosie is up to date on all vaccines, heartworm preventative, and flea preventative. She is spayed and microchipped.
