the plant is about 3 years old. a small bush has grown about 2 feet from the original bush. Is this a sucker? can I dig it up and transplant it?

Knock Out roses are grafted so anything below the graft on the main stem should be removed. It's possible a shoot came up from the root a short distance from the plant. If so, you would be growing the rootstock if you keep it, not the desirable cultivar, or top growth.
