Adopt Roxy II a Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - with White Labrador Retriever /
Roxy loves to play ball, fetch, walks, and loving from her persons. She especially loves car rides, whether headed to the park, the veterinarian, or just for the fun of it! Rox was an indoor pet to 2 older people that couldn’t do these things for her due to disabilities, but who loved her with all their hearts.Roxy lived in her original home since the age of eight weeks, where she was both loved and well cared for, though not socialized with little children nor or other dogs. She gets along wonderfully with her foster’s senior dog, but he lacks the energy and spryness Roxy’s playmates will need to keep up with her! She’d be a perfect dog for a single person or a couple that has time to play with her. Though she adores people, her size and enthusiasm can easily knock over smaller or younger kids, so we'd not recommending her to homes with kids under eight years or so. Roxy is completely housetrained and does not destroy things when left alone - but she does not like being outside alone without humans.Roxy needs to be watched around small animals as she doesn’t understand she’s a big girl. Her foster has ferrets she’d like to play with, but that’s a risk not yet taken! Her new owner will need to consistently enforce their house rules. We’ve had good success with training her in our schedule and playing with her so she returns the ball.She is an intelligent, persistent dog who will push the envelope just like a toddler or child. 1 unique thing about Roxy is that she was not accustomed to people sharing attention with 1 another. When she 1st arrived she would bark if I kissed or hugged my husband. We’ve been working on this with her since we know that she wasn’t used to seeing people touching much and worry that she thinks we’re hurting each other. More likely is she just wants the attention from the person that she deems “hers”. She plays soccer in the house with her bones and balls to entertain herself but, hasn’t broken anything. She loves her chew toys and balls very much. And as an added bonus, no 1 gets close to the house without Roxy alerting you to their presence, including other animals.If you feel your home might be the right place for such a good dog - the place to start is with the adoption form found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you promptly to tell you more and to arrange a time to meet!The adoption charge for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.
