found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Roxy is great with other dogs, and on the submissive side. She's presently living with two other dogs, and loves going to the dog park and running around with new dogs there. She did great w/ the five dogs she met at GSRSV's facility. Roxy is also fine with cats. She likes to chase them playfully if they will allow it, but is absolutely non-aggressive towards them. Roxy is on the small side for a purebred GSD, weighing approx 55 lbs at present.
Roxy is housetrained and well-mannered inside the house. She definitely prefers being inside to outside. She sits on commands and likely knows some other commands. She does pull strongly on leash with a traditional collar, but does not pull when walked with a pinch collar. She probably just needs a little more on-leash training. Off-leash, she has excellent recall. Roxy does like to rear up on her hind legs to get more at face-level with her person, but she does not place her paws against the person like most dogs do. She likes to go for car rides, and is calm in the vehicle.
Roxy wandered onto her guardian's property on Dec 5, and all efforts to find her owner were unsuccessful. Roxy was very thin and had bad ear infections, but a vet treated those and they have completely cleared up. Becky, Roxy's guardian, already has two dogs so couldn't keep her, but didn't want to bring Roxy to the shelter because she knew that could be a dead-end. Instead, she contacted GSRSV for placement assistance.
GSRSV has evaluated Roxy and is placing her as "Program Dog." This means that GSRSV is placing Roxy through its adoption program while her guardian continues to care for her. Her adoption fee is $275, which includes an additional charge of $25 over and above the normal $250 adoption fee for a microchip.
