Young floribunda Rose

I have a young floribunda Rose that I planted out about 10 months ago and is showing new growth. As it is young Rose, should I not prune it until it’s grows a good strong framework 
The photo below is not too clear but the Rose is approximately 2ft high x 18” wide and would be grateful for any advice on this subject

    I cannot see your picture too clearly but this is what I would do right now..
    Prune the 3 main canes back to about 1 foot, so they are roughly the same height.. that's all really..
    Try and keep that Ivy from encroaching, it appears to be making a bee line for your rose, which is not good..
    I've put red lines where I would most likely cut...  best of luck.. feed with rose fertilizer early March..
