Meet Roxie

Meet Roxie!
This wonderful girl came into our lives after a very traumatic car accident. She has been recovering in the care of her foster family, and is now ready to be adopted!!

Roxie is a smaller lady with beautiful blonde features. She is quite possibly the most friendly shepherd ever made. Shes never met a stranger. Although she will say hello to everyone in a room, she seems more drawn to the men around her.
She wants you to know that the 0 on the end of her weight is a formality, shes actually only 6 pounds, and belongs in your lap.

Roxie has a high prey drive. She has done well in her foster home with a cat and small caged pets, but does need to be closely supervised. Anything smaller than her (even small dogs) interests her very much, and she will need to be watched closely.

She has not interacted with many children, but she seems very happy whenever she sees one. Roxie doesnt really know her own strength, though, and could easily knock them over.

While recuperating from her injuries Roxie has learned a few words, but has struggled with leash manners. Such exciting things out in the world!

Roxie will need someone that is has the time to keep her busy and exercised, as well as teach her some confidence and some manners.

Roxie could definitely be a dog that goes everywhere with her people, she just needs a bit of direction and a way to let off some steam.

Now that she has been cleared by her surgeon she has been able to zoom around to her hearts content and her wonderful personality is really starting to shine. Now that shes able to get out some of her energy she is learning words so quickly!
She is loving car rides and interacting with new people!

Her foster family is so excited to see her healed, and cant wait to meet the right people for her!
