Plenty of Pets     

Roxy is a loving dog who doesn’t understand why no one wants to make her a member of their family.   

When she came into rescue, she and her puppies were sick, but they got the treatment they needed and soon felt better. Roxy raised her pups until they were ready for their own homes and then she was spayed and placed on the adoptable list. She’s been in some foster homes but no one has chosen her to be their own.

She’s a cuddler who loves to give kisses, go for walks and be petted. She’s well behaved in the house and has no food aggression.
A home where she’s the only pet, and there are no small children, would be ideal.
