In a new environment, Roxanne is the "play police". If other dogs get too rowdy she will try to shut things down. After a week of living with young dogs she has given up some of her policing duties and only barks at them when they romp a bit too close to her. Otherwise she loves other dogs of all sizes and likes to curl up with them for nap time. Roxanne has no prior experience with cats but when she saw one across a room she growled at it. We are not sure if she can safely go to a home with cats but can test her further for an approved applicant.
Roxanne has excellent house manners. She is solidly potty trained and does fine in a crate overnight. She likes soft toys and will hoard them in her bed. Roxanne does not seem to know any commands and is a little scared of walking on leash. She does best if she is walked with a harness and other pups. Roxanne would do just fine living in an apartment as long as her people were willing to help her learn that leashes are ok. She would transition best into an adult only home with other dogs in it. She would be a perfect companion for a retired person.
