,,Rosebud didn’t have much time left because she was locked in a cage as winter temperatures continued to drop.” Ruff Start Rescue said on Facebook. The dog was abandoned on a street in Minnesota a few weeks before Christmas. Rosebud was locked in a crate with no way out.
,,Rosebud was found by pure chance after a Ruff Start handler fell into an alley in St. Paul. The thin and emaciated pit bull curled up in a ball and tried to keep warm but lost the battle against the cold. He wrapped himself as tightly as possible to prevent the cold from penetrating the iron shed, but his emaciated body could only protect him to a degree.”
Rosebud was immediately handed over to Breanna Jensen’s foster family. Breanna had planned to take a short break from fostering during the holidays, but she couldn’t do it without Rosebud.
Ruff Start added on Facebook: ,,Aside from the horrible circumstances Rosebud had to live through, she is so loving and indestructible.” A month after her rescue, Rosebud had gained weight, was healthy and in such good spirits that she was offered for adoption.
Then, on January 10, 2022, the great news came.
Rosebud found a home! Azure Davis, founder of Ruff Start Rescue, wrote: ,,The news you’ve all been waiting for? What a difference 30 days can make. She is about to start a new life with her new family and new sister. For those wondering, Rosebud’s rescuer went back to the street to check and there were no other abandoned dogs on the street.”
