Plenty of Pets

Roxy is a young dog who just raised a litter of puppies and is now ready for a home of her own.

She’s about 2-3 years old, playful and good on leash. She doesn't like to get her feet wet or muddy and will only go out in the rain if someone goes with her.

She needs regular exercise, but also loves spending time in a comfy chair, looking out the window soaking up the sun.

She loves cuddles, and quickly flops over for belly rubs.

Roxy barns to let people know when someone is coming. She used to bark at almost everything, but she is gaining confidence and now barks much less

She doesn’t like being alone too long, so she needs a home where someone will be around much of the time. A home where children are 16 or older would be best.
