This is Rosie, D-O-B 2/24/06, out of Sugar and Buckshot. She is
an exceptional little girl. I will give you an idea of her
Her daddy Mike Seiberling passed away with Cancer last month.
She is in IL with family at this time. Her home had been in WI.
She was Mike's only heeler and at home pet. He lived in an
apartment for a time and then moved to a house. She has been
socialized with a large network of family and friends. Mike was
a very out going, happy go-lucky man. He was a nurse and had a
true spirit of gentleness and caring for others.
Mike's brother and sister-in-law have Rosie at this time.
They are in their seventies, still farm, but want to travel.
They have their own little brood of small dogs. Rosie does fine
with the other pets. She does fine with all people she has met.
She did not live in a home with children or cats. From what I
have heard of her though, she seems to be well socialized around
all people of all ages and has not shown aggression toward cats.
The cat issue is an open window. If she has not lived with a
cat, she might not care for one now once she has settled in.
(Indoor cats.) Who knows. Why put her or your if you are a cat
person through that. I only want a home that will work out. No
trials if possible.
She is housebroken, spayed and her shots are current. She has
been a well loved and well cared for little girl. We want to
thank Mike's family for taking such good care of her in
this transition of life for them as well as her. Mike is a man
that will be greatly missed by his family and of course Rosie as
well. She needs a family that will take time with her and allow
her to settle in. A month has passed and from what I have heard,
my thoughts are, I believe she would be more than willing to
settle in with "her" person at this time. She has been grieving
and is lonely for "her" companion.
Rosie made the transition fine into their home. She was not a
regular visitor to their home and has done well with them and
their pets. They have described her as a "good little dog" and
"a sweet little dog". After a month, the family does not see bad
habits or bad behavior. In the beginning it was more confusion
As I stated earlier, I really do not want to start out with
someone that wants to "see if it works out." I do not do that
with my pups. Mike left specific instructions for the family to
contact me and to their credit they have taken much time to see
she is well cared for. I will be the contact person with Rosie.
I am open to a family, yet I think she would be exceptional for
that single person to dote on her and for her to dote on them.
This is a free adoption as all of my older dogs are. Free to
find a right home, not free as in, we can't afford one, shots,
I have re-homed five of my pups since the 90's. Each has been
a perfect match. That is what we want for Rosie. Not many
heelers of this age come along like Rosie. She should not have a
hard time finding the right home. My contact info is listed on
our Home page. Right now, a phone call would be the best.
870-231-5216. Our computer has been down. For those of you that
follow my pups, please include her in your thoughts and prayers
for the right home. I will keep you all posted.
