I love trips in the car

Gorgeous looking Rosie is great with most dogs but is happiest when with her people. She is more than happy to socialise and hang out with you at your local cafe. Rosie has beautiful manners and will never beg for a share of your food. Rosie loves travelling in the car so if you are active and fun loving this inquisitive girl will make a wonderful companion for those day trips and adventures.
Although Rosie is quite a strong girl she is also very gentle and sweet with the people she loves. She can be frightened and wary of men that she does not know and likes to keep her distance from them. Her new family will be adult just due to the fact she may accidentally bump a child as she is an enthusiastic and affectionate dog.
Rosie walks well on the lead although a Halti is very useful, sits on command and will happily return to her bed when asked. Unfortunately she does not have that strong instinct that only allows one thought in her head so may never have great recall. She also unfortunately has a high prey drive so does need secure fencing as she will try to find possums and birds.
Her new family will ideally be around most of the time, and will be feline free. She would also not be suited on a property with stock as she may be tempted to chase.
Rosie is an amazing girl. Is she the one for you?
Please note: our dogs are not available for interstate adoption. We also do not adopt to people under the age of 25 years.

Victorian Dog Rescue offers the services of our trainer free for six weeks if needed for any settling in issues.
All dogs that come into the care of Victorian Dog Rescue are tested for heart worm.
Victorian Dog Rescue has a six-week full refund policy and a lifetime takeback guarantee that includes 50 per cent of the adoption fee refunded.
We are a community fostercare network, not a shelter, and our dogs and cats are cared for in private homes. Note that we are very careful where we rehome our dogs and cats and we have an intensive process. If you want a quick turnaround we are not the group for you. If you seem like a good match for the dog of your choice we will organise a telephone chat, a meet and greet and a property check. We offer a six-week full refund, free assistance for six weeks for any issues, and a lifetime takeback policy with a fifty percent refund of the adoption fee, and of course an invitation to our adopters’ Christmas party.
We care for our dogs and cats and we want you to as well. We know that genuine applicants have no trouble with this process and understand that if we refuse you a dog or cat, it is because you are not the best match for that pet.
Our commitment to the dogs and cats in our care is total and we treat each one as if we are passing on a family pet. This may not suit you so we point out that there are equally great dogs and cats available in pounds, shelters and with other rescue groups.
