    Roxy is sooo ready to get out of the shelter!! She bonds strongly with her handler and loves being around you! She’d do best as the only pup in the home, but will give you all the love you need! She’d do best without young children. She reportedly did amazingly on her dog day out!!!

Roxy had a great time on her Dog Day Out of the shelter…she started her day off on a scenic walk around the park, and ended her day sleeping on the couch. She was extremely easy to handle while walking and great in the car. She also did very well with listening to commands that were given to her. What a sweetie!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
