rosieHey everyone!  My name is Rosie and I was adopted from the APS of Durham back in 2005.  I had a rough start in my new home.  I had been abused and neglected by my first family so I had some adjusting to do, but all I needed was some love, a little training, and some patience, while I learned what it meant to be safe in my forever home.  Now I’m a very social girl.  I love to have my belly rubbed, playing with my sister, and snuggling under the blankets.  I love life and am very protective of my family because they are so good to me.  My friends at the APS took very good care of me while I waited for my adoption.  I am so grateful for all they did for me.  Every belly rub and cookie I get is because they cared enough to take care of me.  Thanks everybody for helping me start my new life!
