Why Choose me?
Roxy was found running loose with a broken chain around her neck. It is illegal in Athens to keep a dog on a chain, and not much fun for the dog as you can imagine, so it’s no wonder Roxy made a brake for it when her chain broke. Somewhere along the way Roxy got a small gash on her side – it isn’t big, and looks clean and fresh, so it looks like it will heal well. Roxy is a still barely more than a puppy, so whenever she sees another dog she gets happy and wiggly and sends out ‘Lets play’ vibes. When we had her out, Gus Gus was in the next run and she tried to entice him to play with some bows and wiggles. Roxy needs a home that will keep her safe and happy, and unchained.
