Rosie came to live at the Potter-Kirk Pug Pavilion All-Stars in April 2002. It all started when Jen of Kentuckiana Pug Rescue asked if my friend Pam and I could help out with a rescue. Would we drive from Evansville, IN, to Madisonville, KY, to pick up a feisty pug girl from the Humane Society? This one-year-old pug would then be available for adoption by some lucky person. Of course, the answer was yes. Pug Rescue was on its way to save the day! Rosie was all over the place at the Humane Society. How would she react to spending some time at my house with my four other pug babies? I would be keeping her overnight until Jen could transport her to Louisville. I was shocked at how quickly everyone started running and playing together when Rosie arrived, especially Molly, my golden retriever and Rosie herself. I always wanted Molly to have a playmate; little did I know that it would be a one-year-old pug girl! Actually Rosie’s original name was Molly, too. I swear that Molly and Rosie are twins, but wearing different outfits! In this short amount of time, I also saw a bond forming between Pam and the energetic youngster. Needless to say, Rosie had found her forever home… she was meant to be a part of the Potter-Kirk Pug Pavilion All-Stars! Shortly after we decided to adopt Rosie, she was diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, a deterioration of the femoral head (hip joint). This disorder can be serious and sometimes requires surgery, but Rosie is now a “terrible two,” and so far, it hasn’t slowed her down a bit!
