Being fragile and being a drama queen aren’t traits that are usually associated with Pitbulls. The first characteristics that come to mind are stability, brute strength, and of course — playfulness. And Rosie, well, she’s kind of an exception.
Rosie’s front legs are deformed, which means she can’t stand up on her own and that she’s anything but stable physically. It also means she’s not able to maximize her brute strength — if she even has that. But playfulness is definitely up there in her list like it is with most other dogs, and she doesn’t need to stand or walk to demonstrate it.
More than anything though is that she’s fragile and a total drama queen. The lack of functionality in her front legs leaves her vulnerable to all sorts of things, and she must never be left alone for long periods. Her being a drama queen, on the other hand, is completely optional, and her family loves it when she acts like one.
Their story started when Rosie was brought in by a stranger to the animal clinic that Jeremy was working at, only 15 minutes before they closed shop. She’d been wrapped in blankets and according to the person who brought her, she was found in an alley, alone, and with her legs already in that state. Jeremy and the poor creature instantly bonded with each other and the latter opted to adopt her.
It certainly didn’t hurt that Jeremy was a pet lover, to begin with. When he brought Rosie home, he thought it would be a challenge to convince her to get along with the family’s other pets. But her transition and early days with weren’t much of a struggle at all.
Wherever Jeremy went, he brought Rosie with him. And not just because she couldn’t walk either. He was her favorite person in the world and there was just now way she’d let herself be left behind if Jeremy had someplace to be.
And Jeremy was more than happy to oblige.
