found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
My name is Roxy. I am a 35 pound, female Bloodhound mix (possibly some Basset in there too?) and just about 4 months old. I was picked up as a stray off the streets of Houston and despite being in very good health and even having a collar on, nobody came looking for me. Luckily, a social media post caught the attention of a Reggie’s Friends volunteer and they came for me and busted me out of the shelter.
My foster mom tells me that I am the happiest dog in the history of dogs. I just bounce and flounce all over the place. She can tell that I was someone’s dog, at least for a little bit, because I love being around people. They are pretty much the best thing ever. I also love to sniff. Everything. And then I sniff it again…full on hound dog! I have never met a stranger and will acclimate very quickly into a new home.
I am still a young pup, so I am very active. I am also very adventurous and like to figure out all kinds of new things. This week I discovered pine cones and carry them around like a long lost treasure…man do they smell yummy! I love to play, I love water, and I am working very hard on my leash training (but I’m not so good at that just yet). I am very good with other dogs; my foster home has little dogs and big dogs and I love them all. I have also met a cat, she was not too much fun, but I was very good and I didn’t bother her. I could be a best friend forever for some little humans.
My ideal family will want to help me grow from a sweet puppy into a well-mannered adult. They will want to take me for adventures and help me learn how awesome life can be. They will be patient and understand that I am still a puppy and still learning things. They will also want to spend lots of time with me and maybe play some tug? I need a family that is patient with training as I’ve never had anybody take the time to teach me about much of anything. So far, I’m pretty good at being happy in my kennel and about 90% potty trained. I just need a little more time.
I will be spayed on June 1st and then could leave for my family 7-10 days after that. I am current on my vaccinations and microchipped. I am available for out of state adoption and my fee is $450, which includes my airline ticket, my travel crate and new comfy bed. If you are interested in adopting me (or me and my sister Harper together), please email my new friends at firstname.lastname@example.org.
