RosieVi the Shy is a puppy mill survivor;
she spent nine years as a breeder bitch,
which means she could have had 17 litters before she came into CRUSA
as part of THE SENIOR SQUAD Rescue Mission in October 2006.
When she came to us, we thought she would maybe live a year or two
and we determined to make the end of her life better than the beginning.
She has now lived with us for nine years;
her birthday is 5/10/97; her Gotcha Day is 11/5/06.
You can read her story HERE and see how there was "nobody home"
when we first got her. (She was with us for 2.5 years before
she would take food from my hand.)
We would like to thank Dr. Carlisle & staff of Kenosha Animal Hospital
and Dr. Parks & staff of The Vet Clinic of Palm Harbor
for their continuing care of Princess Rosie;
Jean Rozinski & Peggy Knupke for keeping her looking beautiful;
AND ALL THOSE WHO VOTED FOR HER!
