Personality


She is very sweet and loving, but has some anxiety issues. She will bark at some new people or passing strangers. She is house broken, but will sometimes accidentally pee if too excited (submissive peeing).

She always greets us when we get home and is so happy to see us. She always wants to be close by us and would probably sit on the couch or sleep in the bed if we'd let her.

She tolerates the rough housing my toddler provides, but I worry someday it may be too much for her. I think she'd be best suited for a family with older children.

She hasn't been around other animals besides dogs, but she does like some other dogs. It just depends if they seem threatening to her or not.

We took her to obedience training but have not been able to follow through enough with a lot of the things they taught in the class.

Reason For Rehoming


My fiance and I have crazy work schedules and are feeling like Roxy is not getting the attention she deserves. She is stuck inside a lot while we are either working or sleeping. We also have a toddler who is having trouble with boundary issues and is too rough with her.

If you would like to consider offering Roxy a loving, forever home, please fill out our Request To Meet A Pet form here:

Once received, we will contact you to discuss your request and set up a mutually convenient time to meet Roxy and their owner in their home.

About Cincinnati Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at http://findmypetahome.com

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
