Female American Staffordshire mix

Roxie is a sweet American Staffordshire mix who was found starving on the streets. Thanks to some residents of a nursing home, she was fed, but that was not a situation that could continue. 

After being passed along to a number of people who wanted to help but were not able to keep her, she entered foster care with her current caretakers. Roxie is good with dogs of all ages and sizes and shares her foster home with 5 other dogs ranging from young to 13 yrs old and weighing in at 15 lbs to 70 lbs.  Roxie even meets the further challenge of living with one of the small dogs who is blind and has spinal injuries. However, she is exuberant and strong, even for the pint-sized package that she is. Therefore, we would recommend a home with older children, only because she might unintentionally knock a smaller child down in greeting them.
Roxie has lots of energy and would be a great playmate for a medium to large dog, and she would be a great jogging partner.

She has been curious and accepting of the cat in her foster home, who will nuzzle Roxie as she passes by.  Roxie's foster parents supervise such encounters, and would recommend same for others at this point.

Roxie is house trained and is learning basic obedience.

Roxie is current on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and has tested heartworm negative. She is current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative. 

If you are interested in Roxie, please fill out a  Dog Adoption Application

Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).

**Local adoptions preferred (within 1-2 hrs of the Greater New Orleans area), but please contact us if you live outside of this area, as exceptions are sometimes made on an individual basis depending on the dog or circumstances. We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.

About Pet Adoption Services, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Pet Adoption Services, Inc. is a non-profit all breed cat and dog rescue organization in New Orleans. Supported by over 20 volunteer members, Pet Adoption Services was founded in 1996, although some of our members have been involved in rescue for over 20 years. Our mission is to secure loving permanent homes for homeless, abandoned or abused cats and dogs of all breeds. While awaiting adoption, our animals live in the homes of one of our foster parents. During this time the animals receive any necessary veterinary care, including but not limited to, vaccinations, spaying or neutering and heartworm treatment. Our experienced foster parents continually assess each pet's personality and temperament allowing us to place adoptable cats and dogs in just the right permanent home. Pet Adoption Services participates in adoption days during which time, potential adopters get the opportunity to meet and spend time with the animals in a "real life" situation.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Because each of our rescues lives in the home of one of our fosterparents, arrangements will be made for the adopter to meet the pet in which they are interested. Also, PAS holds a monthly adoption day at the Petsmart on Veterans Blvd in Metairie.

Our Adoption Process...

The average adoption fee for dogs is $150, though some adoption fees may be occasionally lower or a bit higher. All animals offered for adoption are spayed or neutered, heartworm negative or undergoing treatment, up to date on vaccinations, treated for intestinal parasites, and microchipped. In addition to completing an adoption contract, potential adopters should be prepared to agree to a veterinarian reference check and home visit. A valid drivers license or state I.D. card is required. This simple yet thorough screening process allows us to place the right animal in your committed, loving home.
