3/09/2009: LOOK AT ME NOW UPDATE!
2/28/08 - Roxy has been adopted!!
The latest from Roxy's foster mom:
"Roxy celebrated her first birthday this December. She is such a good girl. She still gets very excited when she meets people and does jump up to greet them. We are still working on that. That aside, I canít say anything negative about this adorable little girl.
Roxy loves everyone she meets (dogs and people). As I am writing this, she is cuddled up on the couch sleeping with Fiona (another NBR dog that I am watching while her foster mom is on a business trip). Roxy's intestinal problems have disappeared. Her diet consists of Timberwolf Black Forest kibble and Total Biotics. This diet will need to be followed by her adoptive home.
Roxy is a pup with unlimited energy that she needs to burn off. One of her favorite things to do is run around the field acting like a little kangaroo. Roxy has many boxer pals and loves to play with them. Our girl loves walks and cuddling with people or other dogs.
My son visited me over Christmas vacation and Roxy fell in love with him. She followed him wherever he went and loved the attention. Over the Christmas break, I boxer-sat for Tanner....she is a senior dog like my Enya. When Roxy got a little too excited with her, Tanner let her know. Roxy stopped immediately. She will take directions from other dogs.
Roxy has also had the pleasure of meeting Hutch (another NBR dog). What a little flirt she is! They were between gates, however, Roxy was so taken with him that she took out all the toys and started showing off. She would not let him out of her sight. When we took them outside on leashes she acted so silly and I guess Hutch was taken with her too since he was very submissive towards her.
This adorable little girl will do well alone or with other dogs and needs a family with a fence that can give her the exercise that she needs."
Recent update from Roxy's foster mom.
"Roxy is home and healed from her spay surgery. She spent this week hitting the beach and hiking with some of her boxer friends. Despite her lack of exposure to the world as a puppy, she has no fear in trying things out full force.
Over the weekend our little athlete swam, and dunked herself a few times in excitement while playing in the lakes on our hikes. Roxy loves every animal she meets and loves to play, play, play but she also understands senior canines donít always want to do the same.
Roxy is very curious of the household cat but not in any way aggressive. She just loves to follow him around and poke her muzzle on the cat. This sweet little girl has the biggest boxer brown eyes we have ever seen and is truly a doll."
ROXYÖcute cute cute!!!
Roxy is a happy, adorable, 8 month puppy despite her unfortunate start in life. She has spent her life in a crate at a pet shop without a family to love but you would never know it. The pet shop planned on killing Roxy because she had giardia which is a treatable intestinal parasite. Luckily she came to our rescue program instead. She has been placed on medication to treat the giardia and is doing well.
Roxy is very sweet, affectionate and playful, and loves everyone she meets. You canít help but fall in love with her big beautiful brown eyes. She is well behaved in the house and not at all destructive, only plays with her toys. She is good on a leash and would make a great hiking partner. She would also do best with another canine companion.
Roxy rides well in the car and is a polite house guest when she goes to visit. She is a quick learner and we are reinforcing a few basic commands. We are also working on house-training and she only has an occasional accident. She has an appointment this week to be spayed and will be ready for adoption after she recovers from her surgery.
Roxy canít wait to find her forever home and make up for lost time.
