This beautiful girl is Roxy.  She is a pure-bred Chocolate Labrador and is about 5 years old.  She is still learning about the good parts of life.  You see, she was kept in a very small pen, as a breeding dog for most of her life.  She is so grateful now to be out and about and receiving affection and plenty of food.  Roxy is still quite 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 housetraining 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, so as a result she takes treats too eagerly and needs more training and practice at taking them politely.  Because of this, 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.  Roxy 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.  HHS.  PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or
