After seeing her pups off mum Rosie needs a home

Evesham Editorial 31st Aug, 2018   0

A RALLYING call has gone out to Evesham dog lovers who may be able to offer a loving mum a home after the four-legged friend watched her seven healthy pups head off to their forever homes

Two-year-old lurcher Rosie arrived at the Dogs Trust Evesham’s Wickhamford centre in May after being found as a heavily pregnant stray. She was placed in temporary foster care through the charity’s Home From Home scheme and gave birth to four boys and three girls just days later.

Dedicated foster carers looked after the pups until they eight weeks old, helping to socialise them and prepare them for their forever homes. After being the perfect mum to the leggy litter, she then had to say a fond farewell as one by one they left with their new owners.

Her pups are now settled with their new families, but staff said Rosie hasn’t had a single family ask about her since she was put up for rehoming earlier this month. Staff have loved getting to know her, and now all they want is for her to find her special someone too.

Sarah Galvin, Home From Home co-ordinator at Dogs Trust Evesham, said: “Rosie did an amazing job as a mum. It was a large litter and of course she’d been through a huge change to her life just days before giving birth, so we are all so proud of how she coped.

“She is a wonderful dog with lots of love to give who’d make a perfect pet. She can be a little nervous of new people and situations and doesn’t like to be left alone so would need a family who are around for the majority of the day.

“She is living with another dog in her foster home, so could live with another dog providing they mix well during initial introductions. We know all her pups are now happy in their new homes, and that’s all we want for her too. She really deserves it.”

Now her time is no longer taken up being a full-time mum, Rosie enjoys zooming around in the garden followed by an afternoon snooze. She could live with children over the age of eight who can give her time to herself if she needs it.
