12/05/16 15:13 BASIC INFO Roxy A1098791 is a 5 year old Shih/Tzu Mix. She was bought from a breeder 3 years ago. The main reason for surrender is that the owner is sick and cannot properly care for her. Roxy does not have any apparent health concerns. She was last seen by a Veterinarian when she was fixed about 2 years ago. SOCIALIZATION Roxy is shy around strangers for a few minutes and then warms up to them. Roxy has not lived with young children, but when young children visited the home, she was tolerant of them. Roxy plays exhuberantly with the owner. She has never bitten or scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR Roxy does not have any behavior issues. Roxy allows you to take away her food bowl, water bowl, or toy away. She allows you to bathe her. She is not bothered if disturbed out of her sleep. If an unfamiliar approaches the doorway, she barks. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Roxy is best described as friendly, affectionate and playful. She has a high activity level. Roxy follows you around at home. She likes to play with socks. Roxy enjoys running around to play. She sleeps on a doggy mat. She is fed Gourmet Brand dry food.
