My name is Rozzie and I was brought to DogtownSA after a major tragedy in my life when my then loving family were taken away from me in a fatal motor vehicle accident. Arriving at DogtownSA I had no idea of what to expect and was very nervous and apprehensive of what the future might hold for me and how I was going to get over this tragic event in my life. At first I was teamed up with a lovely old fellow called Drex who had also had his own fair share of bad luck and in fact only had 3 legs. He soon warmed to me and in spite of his slight incapacity, we spent many hours romping around our garden. He, along with the humans at DogtownSA, helped me get over my grief. Sadly Drex, due to his age and ill health, also crossed the Rainbow Bridge and I was left alone again. Luckily for me this was very short lived as the DogtownSA family soon found me a new friend named Zeus and together we have invigorating walks with the caregivers and volunteers. Unfortunately I am still learning that pulling is not a desirable behavior while walking but with all the lovely smells and things to see it is quite difficult to contain my excitement. I am sure with their good instruction I am receiving, I will soon be happily trotting along at my walker’s side. My dream is to once again live in a forever home with a family on which I can lavish all my love and show them the new found skills I have learnt at DogtownSA. If they have any other fur babies, preferably a nice young man, I will gladly fit in.
