Hey everyone, I was hoping that someone might be able to help me identify this small spiky plant I found growing next to my front door.
I thought it was possibly a type of rose but I wasn't quite sure.
Thanks!

Not a rose, I don't think. Maybe a raspberry or relative? What's your location?

if that's what I think it is it's going to be a tree very soon. I have two. they are pretty and you can easily trim them into fun shapes but if you turn your back for a second they will get huge.

Why not a rose? Looks like a "wild"rose to me.

It very well could be a rose but it's hard to tell for sure at this stage. Hence the hesitation.

Another question, what is growing around that looks like this? That would help narrow things down.

I do not know of any rose with that shaped thorns or leaves in groups of nine... However I have no useful suggestions.

It looks familiar to me but I'm not coming up with anything. There are roses with nine leaflets and very spiny stems, Rosa spinosissima is one:
