Roxy is a boxer/terrier cross that weighs about 45 pounds and is approximately 10 years old. Unfortunately, in the last few years, Roxy has been bounced around a bit causing her to become slightly fearful with new experiences. This being said, she is looking for her forever home with people who will love her to the moon and back!

Roxy would do best in a home without any other animals. She was not socialized properly very well when she was young so doesn’t understand “dog language.” She has a lot to learn before she should be allowed to interact with other dogs – even when supervised. She is also too interested in cats, so she should not live in a home with cats either.

Don’t let this scare you away though because Roxy has some absolutely amazing qualities as well. She LOVES LOVES LOVES kids. She loves kids more than anything else in the world! Her favorite pastime is cuddling with the 7 year olds in her foster home, she would do that all day if she could. She can be a little shy with new people, because she wasn’t socialized as a puppy, but if she is given a little time to warm up – she will be your best friend! She does wag her tail and is polite to strangers but is also cautious until she has warmed up to them. Due to her shy nature, she would not do very well in a large group setting with people she didn’t know.

Roxy is house trained and can hold it for a minimum of 8 hours. She is also reliably crate trained. Her crate is her safe place; she will often lay in her crate voluntarily. When her people come home and let her out of the kennel – she is very excited and happy, it is like she can’t believe you are home! She also eats while in her crate because she gets a bit shy and doesn’t like to eat in front of people. Her foster mom just puts her food in her kennel and leaves her alone for a little bit.

Roxy also does well on walks. She currently has a martingale collar and is very polite on leash – not pulling much at all. Car rides are one of her favorite things, she sits quietly and looks out the window, and she rarely leaves the back seat. Once she has seen enough, she will curl up in the seat and fall quietly asleep. She can get a little timid when getting out of the car in a strange place, until she is comfortable – she may be a bit skittish.

Roxy is an amazing dog, she does have some quirks but she is definitely worth every single moment you put into her!  She deserves to be loved and cared for as a member of a family and to feel safe, because she hasn’t experienced that except for her time spent with Grey Face Rescue. Are you the person that will take the time to work with her to slowly help her realize the world is a fun place outside of her home?

About Grey Face Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Grey Face Rescue & Retirement focuses on dogs age 7 and older. We accept all seniors into our rescue and hospice care. We don't discriminate against specific breeds, medical conditions, behaviors or history – we believe all senior dogs deserve a second chance. Our volunteers work tirelessly to match each of our seniors with a specific foster for their continued care. We also seek special and educated adopters to give our seniors their forever homes. We're a 100% volunteer-run organization and rely heavily on our dedicated volunteers and fosters to help keep our organization humming, as well as on generous support and donations from the community.

Our Adoption Process...

Grey Face Rescue’s goal is to place our foster dogs into loving homes and families. We take special care to match the right home with the right dog, ensuring a lifetime of love for both the pet and the adopter. To ensure the best matches are made, we have a process that has been proven effective in determining the best homes for our animals. Our adoption process may seem time consuming or unnecessarily complicated, but please understand that we have our dogs’ best interests at heart. We strive to find the best homes possible for our dogs, as well as find the right dog for you and your lifestyle.

Please understand that our organization is completely run by unpaid volunteers, who dedicate their free time to help the dogs. The entire adoption process takes time; we are unwilling to sacrifice being thorough when the dog’s future is at stake. We thank you for your time and patience throughout our adoption process.

Fill Out Adoption Application

If you're interested in adopting one of our dogs, let us know! Fill out an adoption application so we understand more about you and your lifestyle, training beliefs and background with animals.

Application Review

Our application volunteers will do an initial screening on your application to determine if all necessary information was provided. If not, we will contact you to either fill out another application or to provide additional information.


If you rent your home, we will contact your landlord to make sure you are approved to have a dog in your home. We also ask about any breed or size limitations.

If your landlord does not allow for a dog in your home, your application will be denied at this point.

If you are adopting a bully breed, we will contact your insurance company to ensure there are no breed restrictions within your policy.

Veterinary Reference Contacted

Our volunteers will contact your veterinary reference(s) to determine if all your current pets are spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations. If you don’t have any current pets, we will ask about the veterinary care that your previous pets received. If you have never owned a pet, we skip this step.

If your veterinary reference(s) cannot verify the spay/neuter and vaccination status of current or previous pets, processing of your application will stopp until you can provide this information.

Applicant Interview

A Grey Face Rescue volunteer will contact you via phone to get to know you better and ask any questions they may have.

Meet & Greet

Our organization does not have a shelter where you can visit the dogs. Our seniors are all living in foster homes. We do NOT arrange meetings between interested individuals and our fosters until an applicant has been approved via the adoption process.

Once approved, a volunteer (usually the foster) will contact you about scheduling a time to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. This meeting may occur at the foster’s residence or your home.

Please know, just because you are approved as a potential adopter, this does NOT mean you are guaranteed a particular dog. Some dogs receive many applications, and so we may allow multiple applicants to meet with the dog before we choose the home that is the best fit for the animal. If a volunteer involved in the meeting between you and the dog does not feel you are a good fit for that animal, you may be denied adoption for that particular dog. However, you may be allowed to adopt another dog.


If you have decided on a dog that you would like to adopt, and we agree it is a good fit, you will be required to sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption donation fee and spay/neuter deposit, if necessary. At that time, you become the dog's owner.
PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!

We will then provide:

A couple of cups of the dog food the dog has been eating.
A Grey Face Adoption tag
All medical and vet documents
A copy of the contract
A transition packet to help in the transition process, a letter from the dog's foster giving you more in-depth information about the dog's likes, dislikes, behaviors, etc.
Any specific toys or blankets the dog has become fond of while in the foster's home.

We have a two-week refund period, meaning if you decide the dog is not a good fit for your family and you return him/her within two weeks, we will return your adoption donation to you. The adoption fee will be deposited upon receipt and refunded only if the adopted dog is returned within this two-week timeframe (or any prior agreed-upon extension of the refund period).

If at any time you are having issues with the dog, please email or call your contact person and inform us. A volunteer will be in touch with you ASAP.

Post Adoption Follow-Up Visit

Our adoption contract allows one of our volunteers or a representative the ability to perform a follow-up visit. We may require such a visit if we feel that the terms of the adoption contract are not being met. Grey Face Rescue is committed to the life, health and well-being of every dog we place for the remainder of that dog’s life. Should the adoption not work out or if you need to rehome the dog, we require, by contract, that the dog be returned to us. Please notify your rep ASAP if this applies to you.
