Rose may be a little girl, but she's quite the squirrel chaser. Now in foster care, she's interested in everything that's going on and likes to watch for squirrels and romp after them in the backyard.

She's also a very gentle, submissive girl who's also having fun with four doggie housemates, one her size and the others bigger. She's happy to hang out with them outside and on the couch indoors. She'd also like to check on some puppies in the house, but she's under a distemper watch, so she can't do that yet.

Rose also likes meeting new people and is friendly with all ages, getting along well with her foster's 7- and 11-year-old grandsons. This lap dog loves to jump in her foster's lap and get her attention. Then she likes playing with her rope toy in her crate, which she enters with a treat and does well there when her foster is away. And she's completely house-trained.

This easy-going girl is very easy to manage and should fit well in most homes. She does chat some, so may do better in a home than an apartment. Come meet this adorable girl.
