Roxanne is a very lovable girl who loves people. She loves to give hugs and kisses, cuddle with you on the couch, and get all the attention you can give. She absolutely adores children and would spend all of her time laying on her back so they can use her belly as a pillow if you'd let her! She also has the prettiest smile you've ever seen on a four-legged fluffy pup.
Sadly she is not very good with other dogs (or any other animals) as she is very afraid of them, so she will need to be the only pet in the household and will not be the type of dog who can go to the dog
park. She has been responding well to obedience training and we have been working with her to become less reactive to other dogs. She is easily distracted by treats making the training fun and easy, and we encourage any adopter to continue her training. She wants nothing more than to please her humans.
Roxanne would do best in a household that can spend lots of time with her and have patience with her while she gains confidence learns to feel comfortable in her new surroundings. She behaves as if she was not allowed inside her previous home so she needs someone to make her realize being a part of a family inside a home is a good and safe thing. This will take a little time and effort but if you’ve got lots of love and want some soft thick fur to bury your fingers in, Roxanne would love for you to make her your new baby!
