Pet of the Week February 3, 2021

Hi my name is Roxy and I am livin’ my best life in my foster home. I am currently residing with my foster mom, dad, 3 kids and 2 dogs. My foster mom tells me I’m the smartest girl ever. She’s teaching me the “place” command right now which I am picking up super fast. “Place” means I lay down on something with four borders in a calm state of mind until I am released.

When I’m not training, I enjoy belly rubs and long walks. I walk best on a prong collar and my foster mom can show you how to use one. I like car rides, but only if we go to Dunkin’ to get some whipped cream.

I get structured play time with my two foster siblings. I like to play a bit rough so my new fur sibling needs to be able to hang with my play style. I also enjoy my crate. I don’t whine or make a peep when I’m in there. Give me a Kong stuffed with peanut butter and I’ll be one happy girl. My family will need to continue crate training me because it’s my safe place to relax and decompress.

I would do best in a home that will continue my training, I need an alpha owner. I listen well but sometimes like any dog, I can be a tad bit mischievous. I may not do well in a home with cats because I can be a bit of a cat chaser but I’m working on it. While I like dogs, small dogs may not be a good fit for me since I like to play rough and tumble and don’t want to hurt my future sibling.
