Roxy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Roxy's Story...
Roxy is an energetic happy dog that was born in 2009 and she arrived at Animal Lifeline when her owner passed away and there was no place for Roxy to go. Roxy loves to go on walks and play in the yard. She is currently on a diet as she is a few pounds overweight. Roxy is house trained and kennel trained and is looking for an experienced dog owner to work with her. She has been around other dogs, but would probably do best in a household without dogs, cats or children due to her resource guarding. We encourage anyone looking to adopt Roxy to research resource guarding and what it takes to manage this type of behavior. Roxy will require a house with a fenced in yard--she hasn't done well in smaller apartment like environments--she needs a place to burn off her energy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxy, a Des Moines Alaskan Malamute/Norwegian Elkhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Alaskan Malamute/Norwegian Elkhound for sale in Des Moines, or seeking a Alaskan Malamute/Norwegian Elkhound dog from a breeder in Des Moines.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Des Moines 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 Des Moines 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 Alaskan Malamute/Norwegian Elkhound breeders who help with Alaskan Malamute/Norwegian Elkhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Des Moines paves the way for another one to be saved.
