Rose's mom says: Rose is a 9-month old Whippet. I found her in a shelter in rural Ireland in November 2005. She had a broken rear femur and dislocated hip, and had never seen dog food before. She remained in Ireland and received treatment and nourishment until she was well enough to make the trip, arriving at JFK on February 8, 2006. She now lives in the East Village and loves city life!
