Does anyone recognize this rose, please?

Hi. This rose was one of the few plants left in our new home. It was in terrible shape last year but it really grew very fast since then! 

In  fact, it just can't seem to support itself anymore, even with the help of the Bamboo canes. (Can you tell I'm a novice yet?)

I was hoping someone could tell me what kind of rose it is, so I can do my research and learn about it. Thanks

    Mme Alfred Carriere perhaps?

    I wondered about that, but the blooms look a little on the big side for that one. Roses do tend to look a bit floppy for the first three years according to @Marlorena so it may just be a case of waiting. If it is a climber, then it's in the wrong place and needs to be grown about 2 ft out from the fence. If you want to move it, then wait till the winter when it's dormant.  Hopefully somebody will recognize it. 
    P.S  Possibly it's Margaret Merrill or a rose called Happy Birthday.

    I have an idea what it is... I wonder if the member can show us a photo of a bloom fully open but fresh, not gone over, and full frontal,  not from side on...
    Blooms this time of year are often untypical... smaller and less full... but the foliage, sparse thorns and growth habit give a lot away... thanks...
