Rosie is a 9 month old Basset Retriever pup. We adopted her from her original owners when they were moving an couldn't keep the puppies anymore. She was 6 months old and house broken, but we never had the chance to see her as a little pup. At that time she was just a little larger than mom, and she now weighs in at about 44lbs.
We live in a small apartment, and were looking for a dog who would want to go for a run down the beach, or a long walk around the bog, but we didn’t want a big dog to take over the whole apartment. Luckily we found Rosie!
She has the playfulness of her dad (the golden) and loves to fetch a tennis ball all day, and at times the activity level of her mom( the basset) just wanting to sleep on the lawn in the sun all afternoon. She loves her play time, and if you aren’t paying attention she will crash into your ankles with the ferocity of an elephant, and roll onto her back hinting that she wants her belly rubbed.
Training has been a challenge, she has chewed four leashes and one harness, but she will always come running and sit right down for a cookie. We look forward to having many joyful years with Rosie keeping us on our feet!
