Facts about Roxie

  • Breed: Border Collie Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Roxie is a sweetnatured, loving girl who just wants to be loved in return. She is a 4 year old Border Collie mix, a medium-large dog at 59 lbs. She is energetic and still full of puppy spirit. This is a girl who thrives on exercise.. Roxie loves playing fetch, running around the back yard, romping with older children, and especially going on walks. She gets so excited when she sees you pull out the leash!. We think with a little training she could be a very good jogging partner.

Roxie is good in the home. She is house-trained using a doggie door and is comfortable being left alone in a crate. She will just hang out with whoever is home, usually laying within 5 -10 feet of wherever you are. Roxie is protective of family and home and will bark when strangers approach. Something in her history makes her somewhat hesitant around men until she gets to know them. She is good with most people, but tends to shy from men wearing dark hats or hoodies. In her excitement at greeting guests she sometime jumps up, but responds to correction. She is used to being the companion of another dog, and would like to play with the house cat as well, but is too rambunctious

Roxie is smart and her strong desire to please makes her very trainable. She has so much potential. Someone having experience with larger dogs who has the time to work one on one with her will be rewarded by having a sweet, responsive companion. She already sits, lays down, and enters her crate on command. Roxie is looking for her forever person or family. Could that be you?

About Dusty Paws Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteers whose mission is to save abandoned, neglected and/or abused animals by placing them into permanent, safe, stable and caring new homes. All of us have experience with volunteering in shelters and continue to volunteer.

We do not mind driving to do a home visit nor do we mind taking the time to go anywhere to look at a potential needy animal who needs to be saved from any situation, either in a shelter or in a home. We do take owner surrenders and have an owner assist program but most of our animals come from shelters.

We hate to see any animal suffer and this is why we do this.

Our Adoption Process...

Our process to adopt is as follows: An application form is completed and submitted at which time we will contact the applicant within 24 hours and discuss the animal they are interested in and make an appointment to meet or give them the date of the next adoption showcase. The entire family should meet along with any resident animals, if possible. Once that is done and it seems like a good fit, a home visit is required at which time we can leave the animal for a required sleepover period of approximately 10-14 days and a Sleepover Agreement is then signed; if that works out then we can proceed with adoption. Our adoption fee is $300 for dogs, $100 for cats, $350 for puppies under one year of age and $50 is refunded upon receipt of a Certificate of Completion of Training from a certified training facility/trainer for a puppy adoption. At any given time after the adoption, Dusty Paws Rescue will accept back into our program the adopted animal if it doesn't work out.
