Roxy needs to warm up to new folks but once she gets to know you, she will want to sit on your lap like a little dog. Once she feels safe and comfortable, she will start to play by tossing her stuffy toy into the air.
She loves to sleep on the bed with you if you'll let her. If not, just give her an old comforter and she'll make it into a cozy nest.
Roxy loves walks and is wonderful on a leash. She loves to run and explore, but deep down is an inside couch potato. She's happy to entertain herself by chewing on cow hooves and deer antlers from the Tractor Supply store.
Roxy loves to be rubbed, either on her tummy, or face. However, she might have arthritis on her back end and hind legs and prefers no or gentle touch there. When she paws you, it means she loves it and please keep petting!
Roxy LOVES TO GO FOR CAR RIDES! She also likes to play with other dogs, but she also likes to make sure everyone knows she is in charge. She doesn't care for dog parks -- too many dogs, too much chaos.
Roxy is potty-trained and does a dance/barks when she needs to 'go' potty, then barks/howls when she's ready to come in. She does NOT like thunderstorms and will stick by her people for comfort.
Roxy is s loyal gal who needs an adopter(s) who's equally loving and loyal.
