Meet Rosie. This poor girl barely looks like a dog. When you first look at Rosie's furless, pink skin; long snout; misaligned jaw and teeth; and severely disabled legs; you'll find it hard to believe that she is even a dog; it's startling, even a bit disturbing. You may even question, like I did, if she is even real.
But as I came to find out, Rosie is very real, a product of backyard breeding and animal hoarding. Rosie's story will break your heart but also give you hope. Rosie was one of 20 dogs pulled by rescuers from a house in Woodland Hills, California, but she is by far the worst of the group. All the puppies rescued were some form of sibling or half-sibling to Rosie.
After being rescued, Rosie was taken to her rescuers home, Cinnamon Muhlbauer, who said, “She is an absolutely gorgeous girl who just needs a little TLC. Well, maybe a lot of TLC." Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I believe she is beautiful. What do you think? Rosie is one-of-a-kind; she’s a beauty, full of love, intelligence, and an incredible will to live.
