Facts about Roxy

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
This beautiful girl is Roxy. She is a pure bred Chocolate Labrador and is about 5 years old. She is solid brown and has short slick hair. She is a smidge overweight now at about 45 lbs. She has a pinkish brown nose and little almond shaped eyes that follow you with much interest and admiration..

She is still learning about the good parts of life. You see, she was kept in a very small pen, as a breeder dog for most of her life. She is so grateful now to be out and about and receiving affection and enough food.

She is still completely lost and uneducated about being indoors. She looks at everything with a questioning expression. She likes to be petted and loved on, very much. She is working on house training and it's going very well. She knows exactly what food and treats are. She went without for so long, that she seems to be worried that they will go away again. She takes treats too eagerly and needs more training and practice at taking them politely. As it is, we don't want her to be with small children, that she could snatch food from. She is good with strangers and kids, other than the food issues. She is good with other dogs and cats too. She is quite comfortable outdoors and enjoys her space in the yard.

She will need a home with room for her to be comfortable outdoors, probably in a fenced yard. She is a little playful but mostly just wants a companion. She will need her new family to understand that even at 5 years old, she is just now learning about so many things. She is spayed and fully vaccinated and ready to have a new adventure in life with a real family of her own.

About Hickman Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission and focus is to benefit the lives of the animals and people in our county by providing for the humane treatment of pets thru foster care, appropriate medical care, rehabilitation of pets, comprehensive adoption coordination, consistent spay/neuter funding programs and public education with a goal of reducing the homeless pet population, irresponsible breeding and the prevention of cruelty and neglect to animals.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Since ALL of our funding is from donations (we are not supported by a government agency), fundraising and a few spay/neuter grants, we always need monetary donations and food and supply donations including straw and bedding material. With winter coming we could really use some more dog houses and tarps (used is welcome). Used crates are also always needed. Pick up can be arranged within a reasonable distance. Thank you for your support.

Our pets are in foster homes with families to help them transition better into YOUR family. Please email our adoption coordinator at for more details.
