Roxie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Roxie's Story...
We were asked if we could take Roxie on because she was heading to the pound, not by any fault of her own. Her family was going through divorce and no one wanted her. She was very scared when we first got her. We could not see her go to the pound as that would be her death wish, the family did not care. Her foster mum got her home and she was just fine with her. She actually is very attached to her foster mum and likes to be around her at all times, even sleeps on the bed. She was just tossed aside as if she was nothing. We were also told she had been to the vets recently, if you can count 2012 as being recent??? She is now current on everything, fixed, heart worm negative and on monthly prevention. What Roxie needs is someone to give her a chance. Once she is with you and knows you she is nothing but a sweet loving dog. She is very loyal. We think she would be better in a home without cats as she is very interested in the cat in her foster home but has never tried to hurt the cat. When told to leave the cat alone she will. Would you take the time to know this beautiful soul? She will give you the love and attention ten fold if so. She is about 4 years old and 30lbs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxie, a Ashburn Shiba Inu/Basenji dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shiba Inu/Basenji for sale in Ashburn, or seeking a Shiba Inu/Basenji dog from a breeder in Ashburn.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ashburn already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Ashburn breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shiba Inu/Basenji breeders who help with Shiba Inu/Basenji rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ashburn paves the way for another one to be saved.
