The Story of Rosabella – One Year Later

An update on Rosabella – One year later.

Hearts broke around Minnesota last December when Rosabella was abandoned in a city alleyway in a wire dog crate. With not much time left in the frigid temps, she was found by a Ruff Start volunteer and taken to safety. Read her story here.

It’s been nearly a year since that day and Rosabella is living the life she deserves. We recently received this happy update from her adopter.

“After seeing her sad story on the news, I knew I had to reach out to see what I could do to help her. Luckily I was chosen to possibly adopt her. Rosabella was brought to my home for us to meet each other along with my pit mix Lucy. We needed to see how “THE GIRLS” (as they are now known) would get along before the adoption process could start. Lucy and I fell in love with her right away. She is such a sweet girl, so happy and curious about everything. She follows us everywhere. She has definitely grown a lot, she’s healthy and very active. Rose enjoys going for walks in the neighborhood, the dog park, and especially the Dairy Queen for pup cups! Always wanting to go in the car to see where her next adventure takes us. Lucy and her play together and will wrestle until they wear each other out. Then they are off to nap where they snuggle and give each other kisses. Sometimes even with Scotty the cat. 

It has been fun to have Rosabella in my life. She has such a sweet spirit which is amazing considering her background. Now she gets the much-needed love she deserves in her forever home!”

Thanks to our supporters, Rosabella received the medical care needed when she arrived at Ruff Start Rescue. This #GTMD22, please donate in Rosabella’s honor, to ensure we have the needed funds when our next emergency arises.
