The following article is part of an ongoing effort to help homeless dogs in and around Toronto/Hamilton area find suitable and loving homes. Currently, the need is great but the homes are few. Your help is desperately needed.
This little princess is approximately 10 years old and weighs around 15 lbs. Rosita can only see with one eye so you would need to get close to her to call her so she can follow you. According to rescue staff, she walks better without a leash but does so at her own pace. She will stop here and there along the way.
It is important that Rosita not be left unattended, as she is liable to wander off. She needs a calm and relaxing environment, preferably with only adults. It is also vital that a new person in her life is patient and has the time to dedicate to her well being.
Her one eye needs to be cleaned daily. She also needs skin lotion for allergies. Although she is missing many teeth, she can still eat dry food without a problem. Rosita knows to do her business in the back yard and is well behaved when inside the house.
She is house trained, spayed, up-to-date on her routine shots, heartworm tested and micro-chipped. Currently, she is in the care of a rescue organization in Houston, Texas but will be transported to Ontario if the right family awaits her arrival. AL-ONE Dog Rescue will provide a potential owner with daily videos, phone chats and any other information that is needed.
