Roxie is looking for a VERY special home. Roxie came to us from a property where she had never had human contact before. So, Roxie is quite nervous of people. She has been in a foster home for a month now and has been making good strides with her confidence, but still doesn’t quite understand the human touch.
Roxie MUST go to a home with a dog social dog that can help boost her confidence and show her this world isn’t as scary as she may think. Roxie will need a fully fenced, secured yard that she can have fun playing around in as she still doesn’t understand walking on a leash yet. Roxie needs very patient, dog-savvy people to sweep her off her feet and show her the wonderful life of a dog! Roxie MUST go to an adult only home please. Roxie’s favourite thing to do is snuggle up with all her foster doggy siblings, they truly help her feel relaxed.
Roxie has so much potential, she just needs a human and doggy sibling(s) that promise to be patient with her. We know that in the right home and an understanding hooman, Roxie will thrive!
