Rose is still waiting for her New Beginning!
Rose is currently in boarding in Billerica, MA and waiting for a foster or an adopter!
Meet ROSE, a very affectionate and playful 11 year old Pit Bull/Lab Mix who is 60 lbs. of love. Rose once belonged to a great family, who sadly, were evicted and Rose found herself homeless and surrendered to a city shelter. A loving foster home stepped up for her, but it is not the right home for Rose, as she and the resident dogs do not get along and we are avidly seeking a new home for this special girl.
Here is what Rose’s current foster mom has to say about her:
“Rose likes to give TONS of kisses and just wants to be your best friend. She is dog selective, and would prefer to be your one and only girl. Rose is very smart and likes to be right by your side, whether it be jogging, swimming, pulling weeds from the garden, or watching TV. Rose ADORES KIDS, and gets so very excited to see the little boy in her foster home get up in the morning and begin the day with activities. Whatever the agenda, Rose thinks it’s a great idea. We’re going for a ride? Great idea! We’re going to take a nap? Great idea! This is a girl who will connect with your heart and soul and really be your very best friend. Please give Rose a chance to have a family of her own to love!”
Rose is up to date on shots and microchipped, housebroken and trained. Rose has a sponsor who is willing to cover her adoption fee and the first three months of food and a wellness vet visit too!

Rose’s shelter information…
***-A volunteer writes: A wise woman once said, ‘it’s hard to be a diamond in a rhinestone world’ but our own down-and-out Diamond is certainly giving it her best shot and boy, does she shine brightly! This amazing senior has so much life and love to offer you’d swear she was a youngster half her age and she comes complete with rave reviews from her former family, forced to surrender her when they were evicted from their home. For 11 loyal years Diamond grew up right alongside her human siblings, a gentle, relaxed and tolerant presence in their lives and a playful and exuberant companion toward all the dogs (large and small) for whom her owner pet-sat. While she (quite understandably) snaps if a cat scratches her, Diamond is chill with feline friends too and and so sweet that she’s even played with mice without harming them! She’s described as smart, obedient and loving, friendly toward strangers, good around elderly people and a real lap dog. We’re told she’s very house trained (doing her business off the curb no less!) and knows commands for ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘drop it’, ‘give paw’ and even a special command of ‘gimme’ to pick up the leash when her owner drops it! Next to socializing with people and eating delicious treats (which she takes nicely from my hand) Diamond’s other great love is the game of fetch and just like everything else in her repertoire she has it down to a fine art. She sits to wait for my throw then dashes and leaps to catch the ball, returning at a run to drop it right by my feet so we can continue the game. If I should dawdle she whines and looks up at me to let me know she’s waiting and the smile on her happy face when I pick that ball up again is absolutely priceless. Diamond is a precious treasure who’d fit into almost any family with ease and she’s more than earned the right to spend her not-so-retiring retirement years surrounded by love. Your chance to make the world a better, brighter place is calling – have you hugged a senior dog today?***
