Roxie - Pending's Story...
Approximate age / weight: 7yrs old/70lbs (but definitely needs to lose about 10lbs)

Good With Cats: Unknown

Crate Trained: Yes

Walks Nicely On A Leash: Yes, but pulls when excited

Knows Basic Commands: Yes

Energy Level (Couch Potato, Moderate or High): Couch Potato/Moderate - Roxie needs to be kept active and lose weight.

Arrival story: Roxie was an owner surrender to an animal shelter when her owner lost his home. It was very difficult for him to surrender her, but he knew he could not care for her and could no longer provide her with food and shelter. The staff fell in love with Roxie and put out a plea to save her. WT stepped in to give this girl a new lease on life! Although she lived her life in an outside kennel this smart girl knew what she needed to do with her second chance at life.....Roxie has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained.

Personality: Roxie is finally recovered from having knee surgery (she had a torn ACL) and is ready for her forever home. Roxie is overweight due to lack of exercise and also has an under-active thyroid. She is taking medications twice a day to help this. Roxie is a very affectionate dog who loves people and gets along great with other dogs. She enjoys playing in the yard, chewing on bones, and cuddling. Roxie listens well and knows her basic commands such as sit and down.

Forever home: Roxie is a laid back gal who will fit well into most situations. She will need to be kept active and get exercise to help her lose weight and keep it off. Roxie is looking for a family to call her own who will shower her with love and hugs and kisses.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxie - Pending, a Northville Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Northville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Northville.

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