Rosie joined our family in February 2014.
Rosie was originally adopted after a short and unsuccessful racing career (2 starts, but not very interested in racing). She moved from the mainland to Dunalley and lived with 2 elderly dogs, another Greyhound and a Kelpie. Rosie’s playful character got a bit too much for her older siblings and with much regret her owners were forced to put Rosie up for adoption again at the beginning of 2014. She is now the much beloved fur-baby of the Wicks Family, and her hi-jinks and aptitude for ‘counter-surfing’ (Rosie is a natural for surfing treats on the kitchen bench) make her the perfect foil for the trouble her two human sisters get up to!
Rosie can often be found snoozing on her bed at the Taroona hospital, ready to offer moral support to our patients or say ‘Hi’ to our visiting clients. She adores any form of attention and is quick to remind the staff when she has not had her daily quota of snuggles! She is the perfect clinic mascot!
