See Answer to Question 341616.
We viewed your photos and There are several factors that may be affecting the plant. Factors includes virus, possible herbicide damage, thrips, and/or possible rose rosette disease. We cannot say for sure. You will have to look for this. See the attached links.
There are several virus that can affect roses.
Herbicide damage - It is possible that this may be herbicide damage especially if something was sprayed on the shrubs or nearby.
Rose rosette is a disease caused by a virus. Leaves are usually red and excessive pliable thorns, etc. If this is the case, all you can do is remove the plants. It infects the roots but not the soil. However, the vector, eriophyid mites, may introduce the virus to new plants.
At this point, you may want to take cuttings from healthy growth. Take six inch cuttings and root in soilless mixture.
At this point, all you can do is prune back hard to healthy tissue. Keep watered.
Monitor the new growth to see if it is healthy.
