Rosemary (whose friends call her Melly) was excited to learn she is more than half a year old now! Look at that chest absolutely puffed out with pride.

She has been working hard in her foster home to learn strangers are not dangerous and that she can play with other dogs. Adoption events are hard for her as they are filled with strangers and dogs which both scare her (until they aren't strangers anymore - she loves her people with her whole heart!).

Rosemary needs her forever home to understand:
* she is a BIG puppy who is still learning manners (up to 60 lbs now)
* she needs a fenced in yard to ensure strangers or unknown dogs/cats do not enter her space without her parent's permission
* she barks loudly when she is scared to try to scare the things that are scaring her and force them to give her space. She can also bark for attention if she has not gotten enough exercise
* she needs patient adopters willing to do EXTREMELY slow introductions to other dogs (on average it takes her 2-4 weeks completely separated to warm up to other dogs and she should not be rushed)
* she needs her dog friends to be tolerant of rough play after they do meet
* she doesn't like the sight of cats, so she shouldn't live with them
