Roxie's Story...
Beautiful Roxie Needs a New, Loving Family

5-year-old female, medium, black, red and tan German Shepherd
Good with other dogs: Upon proper introduction
Good with children: Unknown
Good with cats: Unknown

Poor Roxie. Due to a change in circumstances, her family of five years could no longer keep her. This girl
is a true sweetheart, but is understandably anxious after losing the family she’s held so precious.
Roxie absolutely loves belly rubs. She will roll right over for a rub anytime you’re near and her foster
reports that she has a very sweet disposition and loves people. She is learning to live with a pack at her
foster home; it appears she hasn’t been around other dogs much. But she’s learning to be respectful of
the pack and fitting in nicely.

Her fosters report that Roxie has some separation anxiety, but they are working with her. They also said
she can be a runner, so a fenced yard with secure gates and door locks is very important. Roxie is
housebroken and crate-trained and really enjoys the security of her crate, so that is a must in her new
home to make her feel safe.

Roxie already knows several commands, including sit, wait, heel and down. She’s a super smart gal. And
with time and love, she should get over her anxiety. Wouldn’t you be anxious if you lost your family?

Roxie is a sweet, loving girl that wants nothing more than to take care of her family and get frequent
belly rubs. Can you help her out?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxie, a Phoenix German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Phoenix breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
