Name:   Marge Tarboro (Rosie)  
Description:   ~ 6 yrs ~ 40 lbs ~ fostered in Hyattsville, MD ~

Rosie/Marge was recently returned to BRSM. She is heavier than the pictures show. She needs a little time for her mom to get to learn about her. She seems to have some angst at night. And she wakes up afraid. Otherwise, she is a loving girl. Please give us a little time with her.

Here is her previous posting from before she was adopted:
Marge (we have been calling her Rosie due to her beautiful red eyelashes) was rescued from a North Carolina shelter in March. As soon as we got her outside the vet's office she rolled around in the grass to take in belly rubs. She was perfect on the long drive back to Maryland, spending her time looking out the window then falling asleep in the passenger side foot well. We even stopped for a roadside lunch where she enjoyed some treats of her own.

Within a few hours of being home her true personality started to show. She gets along great with her foster sisters and is very good about sharing space and toys. She really is a social dog, taking every opportunity to be with her people. Marge spends most of her day alternating between sniffing around the back yard, laying in on the couch, and cuddling up to humans. On occasion she will get riled up enough to run around with her more active foster sister. However, her favorite thing to do is be around her humans. She is most comfortable sitting next to you while reading a book or watching TV.

Marge is mostly house trained, but does have an accident here and there if you don't keep to a schedule. We are working on finding a routine. She is a VERY QUIET dog and rarely makes a peep besides "purring" when its time to settle into bed. She would love to sleep in a human bed, but she does just fine in her own space. So far we have not seen an ounce of aggression from her, even when food is involved. She seems to do very well with new people, always coming over to greet them and request pets. She has met a few kids on walks and has not had any issues.

Overall, Marge (Rosie) is a medium energy dog that would be a great companion for someone who wants an easy going companion. She is equally happy going for a walk, playing in the yard, or just hanging out on the couch. We believe she would be happy as part of a pack or as a solo dog. For a girl who seems like she had had a tough start to her life, she has a great personality and is as sweet as can be.
