Roxie is a sweet, loving mini Australian Shepherd who is in need of a new home. Her owner recently entered a nursing home and the owner’s family cannot care for another dog. Roxie is 8 years young, overweight at 45 pounds, and she has a very nice red tri coat that was shaved but is now growing in nicely! Roxie is housebroken, crate-trained, and she knows her basic obedience commands. She walks nicely on leash and loves to ride in the car.
Roxie loves people! She grew up in a home with a quiet elderly couple but she does enjoy people of all ages. Roxie is a very Velcro, medium energy girl who wants to be with her people – she loves attention and is a great snuggler. She enjoys daily walks, exploring her yard and hanging out with her humans on the couch! Roxie is not a real fan of other dogs. She will tolerate them if she must, but Roxie is used to being the only dog in her life! Roxie chases cats, mostly to play, but her play style with cats is too rough for most.
The ideal home for Roxie is one she can share with happy, affectionate adults who are looking for a happy, affectionate (and somewhat overweight) doggy companion. A fenced yard would allow her to explore with ease, regular modest exercise would help with her waistline, and she would love to be the only dog! Children over the age of 12 would be fine with her, but cats should be avoided. Roxie currently lives in Knoxville, TN. If you are interested in adopting her, please contact her owner directly at email@example.com.
