Can you name this plant

I wonder if you can help me, I had a rose in the garden and the plant pictured below started growing from the same plant and the rose died off and this grew in its place. I heard it could be Rosa multiflora but I am still learning and cannot identify, many thanks
Whatever it is, it must've been used as rootstock for your original variety.
Very pretty (not a fan of cultivated roses, but wild ones have their place) but vigorous to say the least - I've seen them grow 20 feet up a tree!
Edit: I think spinosissima might be pricklier (just looked it up)
