Rosie is 4 months old and is probably a hound/cattle dog mix. Life started out pretty rough for Rosie. She just showed up at the Haven starving. Of course, they fattened up her belly and got her up to date on her shots and so forth. Now she's ready for her forever family.
When I began this project, I was a big newbie to rescues. Over the last few months, I've learned a lot. One thing I never thought much about was painting puppies. I mean puppies are so cute, why would they be stuck at a rescue?
I didn't realize how often the rescue end up with a pregnant dog, then of course they end up with lots of puppies to care for. Sometimes like with Wags, the mama dies and the rescue is there to care for them. Rescues take in unwanted puppies when owners aren't responsible with their dogs.
If you are thinking about getting a dog, Haven of the Ozarks has all kinds of choices from puppies to senior dogs. And if you're not near the Ozarks, I hope you'll make your local rescue the first stop in your search.
