MEET ROXY 5!! **Please Note: This is a courtesy post for another rescue; different adoption fees/policy apply.
Roxy is a happy, loving girl who loves attention and could be pet all day! She smiles -- so cute.
Roxy loves the park, swimming, and desert walks. She's very friendly and likes people, dogs, and children. She plays fetch and loves tennis balls, toys, and shredding things (put your shoes away!).
Due to Roxy's physical strength and lack of leash training, she needs a strong, active owner who will help her with further training. She knows basic commands (come, no, sit) but she often ignores them if she is distracted.
Roxy is beginning to understand "stay, heel, no bark, and stop" but needs additional training. Roxy has a tendency to happily bark as people walk by, and we are currently working on that. She responds very well to positive reinforcement, such as "Good girl, no bark!" as she very much wants to please.
Roxy may display protective reactions around the home area and is a good watchdog. She has learned a lot in short period of time, wants to be where you are and is a good friend and companion!
Due to obesity, Roxy 5 requires strict diet, thyroid medication, and exercise daily.
