Facts about Roxy

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brindle
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
This older girl is a happy, curious gal who has a lot of spunk left and loves to play. . . in many ways like an overgrown puppy. Roxy loves to play fetchd and tug-o-war and enjoys laying in the cool, soft green grass and enjoying the sunshine. Roxy slow to warm with people at first - and does best with one on one encounters- she's unsure about large groups of people and is anxious and fearfull. . .but once she gets to know you - she warms up and you're her friend! She is not used to small/ young children. . . and does better with teens and up. Roxy gives kisses and loves her belly rubs and treats. Roxy is a bit of chicken in many ways - loud bangs...such as firecrackers, gunshots, thunder. . .make her panic! but she's calmed by the presence of a person she knows and feels safe with. Roxy is protective of her foster and reacts (especially at night) when people approach her personnal space/area. She has been around primarily teens & adults. Roxy is NOT toy or food aggressive; however Roxy is a dominant female, and exhibits this behavior at 1st with other dogs - but that has been hit and miss - and with positive firm intervention, repeat exposure and time she settles in - and will eventually not even react to them, even ignore them or want to play with them. . .may take a day, may take 5 days - depends...(if the other dog(s) show aggression however, she will react. Roxy is a cat chaser...
Roxy responds well to "treats" and her verbal cue which is " leave it" and "be good girl". She knows the commands: sit, down, lets go, & off. . . she is housetrained. Roxy would do best with structured and continued socialization with people. Roxy is a dog that would do better with a nice fenced yard to run around and play in cuddle on the couch and watch TV with her person. She really is too overwhelmed with a lot of people and other animals - so she is NOT dog park candidate. At heart, Roxy just wants to be someone's shadow and be with them

About SaveALife DOG Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

I am a very small, independent dog rescue with limited space. . . I have been doing rescue for 15 years. In the past, I have pulled dogs from our local shelter that had failed temperment, or were out of time and at risk to be euthanized. However, with the current economy, I've been running full with dogs which are abandoned and/or owner surrenders.
I started doing rescue by fostering two sibling pups from our local shelter, who'd run out of time...been doing it ever since.
I have only had one foster home in the past,however, for the past several years, I am solo, which severly limits me on the number of dogs I'm able to take in to rescue and care for.
