How do I look after my bath and brushing?? This is Rosie (or Rosebud – as I call her) – she can be skittish at times but she is as loyal and sweet as they come. She is part shepherd and something else. We adopted her from a kennel when she was 4 months and have had her 12 years. Her previous owners wanted her to be put down because they could not afford minor surgery on her paw. The vet did the surgery and kept her in the kennel. We lost our black lab to seizures around the same time and agreed to take her in. So glad we did.
