Roxie (formerly Biscuit) will melt your heart! She greets everyone with a sniff and a smile and is a friendly and playful girl. She has learned basic commands, and is house trained. She sleeps in a crate with the door open but does not like to be crated. We take long walks and she loves to run in the yard and enjoys evening walks with the neighborhood kids. She has lots of personality, may steal a sock or a hat when she wants attention. She is affectionate, loves belly rubs and she spends her days sleeping nearby in between walks. She is good with our cat and likes to play with other dogs. While she does get along with other dogs on play dates, she would do best as an only dog.
Although she can be energetic, she can also be low-key. She likes to sleep in and during the day hangs on the couch or in her crate. She prefers to be with people but is ok to be alone for several hours. We have stopped crating and she just sleeps on the couch until we get home. Around 9pm, she retires to her crate and sleeps there with the door open until till morning.
Roxie is one of those dogs that has “a person”. She bonds easily to women and while she is friendly to others, she favors her person. She looks for them when they leave the room and will jump and lick enthusiastically when they return. Wanting all the attention, she may even get protective. For these reasons, Roxie will likely do best with a single-owner or a couple willing to both share in the care and training. Training and agility classes would be great fun with her!
Roxie was found as a stray in July 2019 before making her way to SoCo rescue. In April 2020, she spent a short time in foster and then was adopted. Although the family fell in love with her, she was not a good match them. She got overly bonded with her mom and lost interest in other family members. At times she and the other dog did not get along. Her foster family was happy to have her back and they have been working on reinforcing good behaviors. One of the advantages of having been in multiple homes is now we know what she needs to thrive!
She is spayed, up to date on all vaccines. She completed heart worm treatment October 2020. She has been fully vetted, de-wormed and on monthly preventatives.
