ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Nearly a year after 6-year-old rottweiler, Rose, vanished, her owners are hoping for a miracle.
The dog, which is microchipped, was last spotted in November, in a Foothills neighborhood near Tramway and San Rafael Ave.
Cindy Layman said she adopted Rose from the Animal Humane of New Mexico several years ago. She said Rose disappeared while she was supposed to be staying with a friend.
“I was moving, Rose was very nervous, we lost our other dog and she was by herself,” said Layman. “So I thought if I could just get her out of the house get her out of the way, it would just be a calmer situation for her.”
The woman caring for Rose said she ran from the home and into thick brush.
“I call the vets every month, almost all of the vets every month, to see if she's come through their doors,” said Layman. “I check the city shelter site, which is enormous.”
Layman said every attempt has come up unsuccessful.
“She's really all I have,” said Layman. “I don't have any children, I’m not married, and I just, if they would just bring her back to me, it would be no questions asked.”
Until she's reunited, Layman says the search for Rose will continue.
