Finding Rosie: Looking for a Christmas Miracle in Portland OR
We are looking for Rosie she was adopted from the Oregon Humane Society on Columbia
Blvd. on May 2,2015 We got Rosie in January of 2014 as an 8 week old puppy for our then 8
year old son Ben. Ben attended puppy training classes with her and practiced everyday. He
brushed her,fed and cleaned up after her. They were inseparable. We found out some time
later that Rosie is partially blind. To that Ben said"She just needs me more" someone told him
he was Rosie's "Guardian Angel" and he took that very seriously. When we got Rosie it was a
very difficult time for Ben. His dog we had since before he was born just passed away, his
father was battling cancer and then his grandmother died. 6 months later his father lost his
job. All very traumatic events leaving Ben feeling very uncertain. Rosie was a constant source
of comfort and happiness. Then in March 2015 another female dog we had started attacking
Rosie. We tried for 2 months to sort things out,but the attacks continued and were getting
more severe and dangerous for everyone. Unfortunately none of the rescue agencies would
take our other female dog. So it was either euthanize the other dog or re-home Rosie. We had
to act quickly to save Rosie. So,we regretfully surrendered her to the Oregon Humane Society.
It was the worst decision I've made as a parent. Since that time Ben has been diagnosed with
anxiety. He has a constant air of sadness about him that wasn't there before re-homing Rosie.
He used to want to pet every dog he seen. Being without Rosie has changed something in
him. Giving her up has broken his heart and his worry over not knowing what happened to her
or where she is is causing him tremendous stress and anxiety. We know her new family loves
her and wouldn't want to give her up,but if Ben could just see her and know she's happy and
safe it would go a long way to healing his heart and mind. Please help Ben. Rosie is a tan and
white Australian shepherd mix. She is partially blind. If you have Rosie or know where she is
please contact us. Any help would be appreciated beyond words. Please forward this to
everyone you know. Please make copies and hang up at your veterinarians office,local dog
park,pet store,coffee shop and anywhere else you can think of. Losing Rosie has devastated
Ben. He used to emit this bright light. That light left with Rosie. There is nothing Ben wants
more for Christmas than to have Rosie back in his life in some way even if it's just to know
she's safe and loved. Please help heal my child's heart this holiday season.
