ROXY – 12119
Safe - 11-28-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Roxy. My animal id is #12119. I am a desexed female gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 08-Nov-2017.
Roxy is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease complex which is contagious to other dogs. Roxy will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. She should go to an experienced home with no young children that can manage her energy level and possible management with resource guarding.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Foxy Roxy! And is she ever! She sits on her bed, paws crossed in front of her, such a ladylike position. A quick woof when I approach, and when I open her door, her tail wags as she comes forward to be leashed. Foxy Roxy is stunning, her coat gleams, her weight is perfectly round for her size, her tail wags; she’s great in every way. Her leash manners could use a bit of improvement as she pulls, so a harness may help. She seems to be housetrained and loves chasing the birds en route. In the park, the wind is blowing leaves and debris all over, and Miss Roxy doesn’t miss a thing; she’s alert, interested and focused on every movement. It’s off leash in the yard where Roxy and I have the best time. She loves toys, and she loves tug, bringing the toy over to me to play. She actually touches my hand with it to encourage me to pick up my end. So cute! Also a master at amusing herself, Roxy runs around the pen twirling the toy in her mouth, stopping occasionally to see what I’m doing. I’m watching you, Roxy, and thinking that some person or family is going to be super lucky to adopt you. Roxy sits when asked, takes treats gently, and if I’m ignoring her and her toy, she puts it in my lap to entice me to play. Foxy Roxy loves to play with other dogs as much as she loves to play with humans, and romps in group with both males and females. Foxy Roxy is waiting to meet you, so come on over to meet our girl. We’ll send her home with a couple of tug toys to get you started, and she’ll show you how the game works. Foxy Lady, Foxy Roxy is waiting. Another volunteer writes: “She’s such a beauty”, exclaimed a passerby, and indeed she is. Her face is expressive and soft, her tail wags, her gorgeously soft brindle coat encases a voluptuous figure. Roxy loves being out for a walk, loves to play with toys and loves to cuddle, purring when you pet her. Her ears frame her face like a ‘fascinator’ (remember them?)…she’s just perfect! Roxy is great with other dogs, and if she’s not in her kennel she might be out back romping with other dogs. Looking for a fun, friendly and loving family, Roxy cordially invites you to stop by and meet her today.
