Gypsy Rose

#880 Gypsy Rose, Female, One Year Old

Gypsy may seem like a strange name for a dog who really just wants to stay in one wonderful loving forever home. But my name is a nod to my past as I was a traveling dog who was left behind in a hotel parking lot when my owner abandoned me. Don’t be sad, I was rescued and now I have a warm soft bed, a full tummy and kind hands! The only thing missing is my furever family!
I am a 1 year old border collie mix. And I am just the sweetest girl! I am spayed, heartworm negative and weigh about 50 lbs and the vet said I am healthy. I was super scared when i first got rescued, but now I am getting more confident every day! I absolutely love kids (older) and females are my favorite as I am still learning how to trust strangers.
I love tiny safe spaces so you often can find me napping under the bed, behind the sofa or under my foster moms desk. I am potty trained and learned how to use a bell to go outside. Did I mention how very smart I am?
I am crate trained, especially when i get treats, chewies, kongs, bully sticks or antlers! I love, i mean LOVE water and enjoy playtime in a pool, sprinkler, lake or river. Got your bikini ready?!
I was really starving before i got rescued, so I am very treat motivated and I just LOVE dinner time! Im still learning the difference between food and non-food items so my foster mom says I need close supervision around shoes, toys, rocks, plants and anything at ground level. But I am slowly learning that I dont have to eat that stuff just to not feel hungry because now I get plenty of healthy food every day!
I am a quiet girl and never bark inside the house. But I do love to squeak my squeaky toys! Do you know how fabulous toys are? They are my favorite, especially ones i can de-stuff. It makes it look like snow and i am just soooo proud of myself that i can make it snow inside!
I really hope my furever family likes to snuggle on the sofa. Because it makes me feel so loved, warm and cozy. Its ok if they have other dogs or a cat because I know that our hearts can expand to love one another and blood isnt what makes you family.  So I’d be sweet to a doggie or kitty sibling.
I really am a great dog and promise to be loyal and give plenty of kisses. If you are ready for a forever friend, i’m your girl!
