About Rosie:            

Holly Schmeiser, of Concord, was mesmerized by Rosie’s eyes and her story when she adopted the dog last month from the American Pit Bull Foundation. The Herald Weekly previously reported that Rosie wandered into Kathy Madison’s yard in July 2013 looking malnourished, injured from cuts and in the early stages of pregnancy. Madison took Rosie to an animal hospital and started a Facebook page, dubbed Saving Rosie, to raise money for treatment. Rosie and her new companion, Tucker, will walk in the Charlotte St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 15.
