Duke is a spirited young pup that is full of enthusiasm for life. He’s curious about everything and is trying his best to learn as much about the world as he can. Duke is a big goof and often lets his excitement get the better of him. Since he’s not as small as he thinks he is— he’s a bit of an elephant in a china shop right now, he would be best in a home without small animals or children. Duke can be very awkward in his movements but is starting to grow into his big body. For this reason, we think older kids/teenagers would be okay. Duke is slowly learning that night time is for relaxing and being calm, and is figuring out that laying on the couch and watching TV with the humans (yes, he actually watches the TV) isn’t so bad.
Duke is crate/kennel trained, and is ok sleeping in his kennel through the night. During the day, Duke would prefer someone who is home most of the day so he doesn’t have to be in his kennel more than a couple hours at a time. If left too long, he gets bored and this can lead him to turning to his bed as a chew toy. Duke has a great handle on his basics and has a solid “sit, down, paw/other paw, and high five/other high five” he is working on his recall and leash walking.
Duke is working through some on-leash reactivity, and is learning to sit and wait calmly for humans and canines to walk past. This method seems to be working best currently for Duke and will need continued work. Duke is a little fearful of most men, and quick movements.
Duke will do best in a home where he is an only dog or has a large, tolerant dog as Duke can play rough and still learning from older dogs what is appropriate. Duke is super food motivated, and is easily engaged to try to learn new things. We believe he would excel in nose work activities!
Could you be the home Duke has been waiting for??? He is a big puppy looking for a home that has the time and energy to show him how to be the best boy he can be.

Age: Approx 5 Years old
Breed: Terrier Mix
Sex: Neutered Male

This very small boy arrived at Rosier Days from a scary shelter in Los Angeles. Being a black dog with a leg deformity, we were worried his chances were slim. We scooped him up and we are so incredibly glad we did! He has been a dream.
When Milo was a young pup he suffered from an injury that left him with a broken leg. His leg eventually healed incorrectly which left it deformed and somewhat useless to him. This does not slow him down one bit! He gets along perfectly on his 3 good legs and even uses the fourth to balance once in a while.
Milo is a very shy timid boy and will require an adopter who will give him the time and patience he needs to feel safe and trusting of his humans. Once he warms up to you, the kisses and cuddles are endless and so worth the wait. Milo is incredibly friendly with dogs of all sizes and breeds and we feel he will best succeed in a home with another dog as he is quite dependant on following lead from other dogs.
Milo's favourite things are food, snuggling, giving kisses, running around the house doing what we call his “happy dance”, exploring in the backyard or running around his foster family’s acreage with the other dogs. He also enjoys walks but is still getting used to his harness and leash. We put a little sock on his foot to keep it protected during walks and he doesn’t seem to mind!
Milo is looking for a forever family in Calgary who will give him all the kisses and cuddles he deserves. Being a timid boy, he would prefer a home without small children.
If your home sounds like Milo's dream home and you are interested in meeting him, please fill out an application at
The application must be submitted and reviewed before a meet and greet will be arranged.

SEEKING A FOSTER ANGEL in CALGARY.
Sophie is a 3 year old mixed breed (possibly pug mix) who is about 22 lbs. She appears to have been severely injured at some point of her life. She was left with a break in her spine and other physical ailments. Sophie came into our care with these injuries healed, so there is not much we can do for correcting them. The spinal injury has left her incontinent so she will require a special person to welcome her into their home to let her live out her final days. We are not sure what Sophie’s timeline is, but while she is comfortable we would like her to be able to enjoy life and share her amazing personality with a human companion. Rosier Days will be responsible for all of her vetting, and anything that Sophie may need.
Sophie is a very sweet girl who can be shy with new people, but quickly comes out of her shell. She is great with other dogs, but because of her health should only have light play. We are not sure of how she is with cats, but would probably be okay with proper introductions.
Sophie is a sweet, and well behaved companion. Sophie does have special needs, but these needs are accompanied by a loving and wonderful personality. She will require a caring and patient home to live out her days. We are seeking a home without young children due to her incontinence and injury. Although visiting children should be fine. We will provide diapers, and anything needed for the care of sweet Sophie.
Please complete a foster application at www.rosierdays.com/foster if you would consider giving this loving girl a home. We then can speak in more detail about Sophie.
