Are you looking for someone to fill your heart with love, and your days with shenanigans? If so, boy have we got the girl for you! Meet Rosie. Rosie is pint-sized in height, but full-sized in love, affection, and mischief-making. Rosie hasn't met a garbage can she can't find some fun in (it's all edible or shreddable!), a toy she can't try to destroy, or a person who can resist her charms. 


 She loves to play with other dogs and is surprisingly fast on very short legs. She plays hard! And weighing in around 45lbs, she is quite sturdy. Rosie loves the resident dogs in her foster home and enjoys the dogs that come to visit. You know what else Rosie does hard? Nap. Play hard, nap hard - that's her mantra. Rosie also loves kids. The kids in her foster home are older (12 & 14) but a 7 and 10 year old come over with some frequency and Rosie loves them, too. At approx 45lbs, she's sturdy and doesn't always seem to realize her size so she may be a little tough on very small kids but not intentionally so.


 If you're looking for a guard dog, we're afraid she's not very intimidating but she is an excellent noisemaker. Is someone walking by? Is the neighbor mowing their lawn? The other dog won't play with her and she wants to play? Bark! Bark! Bark! Rosie always makes sure folks know when something is happening. Her foster parents both work from home and Rosie does a pretty good job of being quiet 90% of the time, but she can't help it if that squirrel decides to walk toward the yard. A dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do.

When her humans are not home, Rosie goes to her crate. It's not her favorite thing ever, but with a nice treat to occupy her time (she likes kongs and stuffed bones) she'll comply. She would much rather her humans give her that time to raid the trash cans, de-stuff some toys, and take a book off the shelf to nibble on but she'll settle for the bone. Her humans are always muttering something about "this is for your safety, Rosie." But she is not so interested in that excuse.


 Rosie is a young, spayed dog. She is housetrained, but can get lazy about it when it's raining and on those days requires reminders to do her business. She has no problem sleeping through the night without incident. Rosie loves a good night of sleep cuddled up to her favorite human! Her bedtime ritual consists of racing up onto the bed, and then climbing on top of her human of choice for some serious snuggles before settling down elsewhere on the bed for some snores. Yes, of course, Rosie snores (pretty softly). 


Rosie is just about the sweetest girl you could ever find. She truly loves her people - and every person she meets - with all of her heart. She loves to cuddle on the couch, on the bed, wherever the people are. She does really well with her routine. She goes out every 2-3 hours and during the day is gated into the room where her foster mom works along with one of the resident dogs. She has no problem with that and behaves well knowing her foster mama is nearby. If foster mama leaves the room though, Rosie takes that chance to see if there's anything she can get to over at the desk because Rosie just can't resist shenanigans. 

She is an excellent companion with a really fun personality, but whoever adopts Rosie has to enjoy a dog with a mischievous streak because that's probably not going to go anywhere! She also requires a family that will let her sleep with them in bed, and have someone home with her most of the day. Your days will be anything but boring, and you'll get more love than you thought possible!

If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application at

Please keep in mind there are many factors to consider when choosing the right match for a dog, so an application cannot guarantee adoption. Nor do we work on a "first come first served" basis, but rather strive to find the best match for the personality of each dog.

As part of our adoption process, references both personal and veterinarian will be checked. Sadie's also requires a home visit before we adopt any of our dogs out; therefore we only adopt to our local WNY region.  Please only apply if you are serious about adopting as placing each foster dog in the best home takes time and effort by our volunteers.
