Facts about Roxy
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
I am already spayed.
Hey there! Roxy here! Don't you just hate it when your family moves away and leaves you behind?! Me too. My last family moved to an area that doesn't like dogs like me, so I was dropped off here at the shelter so that I could find a new home. Hopefully my next family will be a permanent one. At 46 lbs, I'm the perfect size. I'm active and like to go for long walks or runs. I really love to chase squirrels, so would probably do best in a home that doesn't have other small animals. Think you'd like to meet me and see if I could be a good fit for your family? Stop by the shelter and visit! I'd love to find a new home soon!
