Roxy's Story...
Roxy is a happy, fun-loving, energetic 1-year-old, 35-pound Australian Kelpie mix who seeks a new loving home. Roxy is extremely friendly and loves to greet everyone she meets with hugs and kisses. She loves to go for runs and walks. She is very alert and attentive and will be an excellent student in a basic obedience class, where she needs to learn proper walking etiquette as she is currently a bit of a leash-tugger. Roxy is still a puppy, so she is still learning to distinguish between nylabones and slippers. :-) She is housebroken and crate-trained. She is friendly with other dogs when not on leash and is not food or toy possessive. For as much energy as Roxy has, she is also very much a couch potato and would love nothing more than to snuggle up with her new owners on their couch or bed. Roxy just wants to be someone’s best friend and is an absolutley wonderful companion.

Roxy is very healthy, spayed, heartworm tested negative, microchipped, vaccinated for rabies, distemper, parvo, and bordetella, and ready for adoption! To meet and potentially adopt Roxy, please call 224 678 5740 and/or email houndhaven@sbcglobal.net. Roxy's adoption fee of $350 helps support our rescue dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxy, a Jacksonville Australian Kelpie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Kelpie for sale in Jacksonville, or seeking a Australian Kelpie dog from a breeder in Jacksonville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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 Australian Kelpie breeders who help with Australian Kelpie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jacksonville paves the way for another one to be saved.
