SCULLY (now Rosie) - 3 years old, 62 lbs, Waxhaw, NC My name used to be Scully but my foster mama calls me Rosie. I am currently being fostered in NC after being surrendered to a kill shelter in December, right before Christmas no less. I'm a boxer pittie mix and am almost three years old. My ideal home would be with an active person/couple as I have lots of energy. If you have a fenced in backyard even better! I love, love, love to run and play but still need to learn to come back to you. Off leash is a no no without a fence. I adore long walks and light hiking. I can probably be trained for longer hikes and to go on a morning run with you! I have allergies to chicken and fleas and am on a special diet and medication presently. My foster mom is transitioning me to a limited ingredient commercial diet. Seems to be working fine and my allergies are in check. I'm am so easy peasy to medicate - you can drop it on top of my food or give it to me rolled in cheese. I LOVE cheese. Really, I do. Oh, I also love organic apples, baby carrots and bananas. My foster mom gives me these as treats. Unfortunately I am not a cat lover so a home with NO CATS is required. I am iffy with other dogs. Some I like. Some I don't. I am the girl boss after all. I would LOVE to be your one and only. I was surrendered from a home with small children, one small dog and two ferrets because the landlord said I had to go. I do have a loud bark. Maybe it was that? I'm shy at first and need a week or two to settle in. And for some reason I am a lap dog. Or, at least I think I should be. I have the most soulful eyes and give lots of kisses. I can shake and am decent on a leash, regular and retractable. A volunteer writes: Scully. Without her Mulder? Looking up for UFO’s? Maybe. Miss Scully started off as scared in her kennel, as this isn’t what she knows. She knows her former family of 2 adults, 2 young children and 2 ferrets, her soft bed, a full food bowl (she’s allergic to chicken), and covers to hide under if there’s a thunder storm. Scully is finally persuaded that I’m a friend, and once out, goes potty (we’re told she’s housetrained), shows me nice leash manners, and then off leash in the back joins me on the bench for some petting. Pleasantly plump, she’s been fed with love, her coat clean and groomed. Scully enjoys treats, taking them gently, gives kisses through the fence at a dog in an adjoining pen, and while still a bit anxious at this upheaval in her life, is making friends and coming out of her shell. We’re told she can be shy with strangers at first, and we’re all strangers, so this is a lot for this beautiful girl to deal with. And she’s dealing just fine, figuring it out step by step. I don’t do change well either, so I get Miss Scully and how brave she’s being. Scully is a proven family girl, and even liked licking the ferrets, so let’s get this little girl into a new home so she can once again have a family to love and take care of. A volunteer updates: That’s my girl! Scully saw me approach, her tail starts to wag and she came forward to be leashed. (She licked the ferrets she lived with, I still love that about her!) She’s figured out the routine, knows that people with leashes are friends ready to take her out for a walk and she’s a happy girl. Off leash, some zoomies, some bounces, some tail wags and a big smile; she’s happy to be out to stretch her legs and go potty. She’s such a beautiful dog, she takes my breath away as I watch her scamper through the pen. She’s ready to be part of a loving family again, and all she needs is for you to meet her and say “she’s the one”, and take her home. You’ll want to, trust me.
