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?
