Breed: Rottweiler mix
Age: 3 yrs
If you are looking for an extremely well-mannered buddy to hang out with you, then look no further, Roxy is here! She is about 3-4 years old, weighs about 65 pounds and is a compact little package. She was brought to the rescue due to her owner not being able to afford her vet treatment for an infection which the rescue funded and fixed. She is as healthy as ever now with no allergies or other ailments. Her mix is unknown, but she may have Rottie or Dobie in her due to the markings. She has quite the luxurious coat! Roxy enjoys hanging out while you are working and will always find a nice spot to lay down and chill. She also loves walks, runs and playing ball. She has energy when you need it, but turns it off when you want her to settle down. She is very well mannered and never jumps on you. She has had no accidents in our home and appears to be housebroken. She listens well to our commands and is great off leash. She could use some refinement on her commands such as sit and down, but she is a very quick study. She can be shy if she thinks she is in trouble, but she will come to you if you stay calm and friendly. She is excellent in a crate, kennel or loose in a yard. She has not shown any destructiveness. She also has no separation anxiety and waits quietly for you to return. Roxy has done very well living with our family and we have found her an easy foster dog on all accounts. She has no food or bone aggression with humans and is excellent for a bath or a car ride. She is a great traveling partner. She has done well with our four dogs showing no aggression, food issues, dominance, etc. She is very comfortable with dogs who she has been able to get to know for a few months. Though, when she meets new dogs, she clearly is not all that interested even when they try to get her to play. She can be a bit nervous when first meeting a new dog, but it is obvious that she is not giving off bad vibes because the other dogs want to interact with her. She is just a bit standoffish which I think one of my boys thinks she is playing “hard to get.” She would do best in a household with dogs who are social and who appreciate a dog not trying to bug them (who just want to be a hang-out buddy) or a home with no other dogs. She is not the type of dog to enjoy a dog park experience – just too stressful and not her cup of tea. She has been excellent with our two cats – both indoors and outdoors – no chasing whatsoever. She is not overly interested in them and she has shown no prey drive. In fact, she even gave up her food bowl when once of cats unexpectedly came up to her while she was eating. She has done very well with our two mini donkeys – even if they were a bit too interested in her. She would make an excellent dog for a person who has horses or other farm animals. I don’t see Roxy with children under the age of 10 – she gets a bit nervous with too much attention and may not play with them as much as they might want. I think she needs a more centered/confident person who can make her feel at ease. She is comfortable with either men or women, though she can be a bit shy at first greeting. She can be somewhat intimidating with her black fur and markings – but don’t let that fool you – she is a love bug. Roxy would be a great first-time dog for someone - she could live in an apartment, condo, house, large or small property. I guess I should just say that she could live just about anywhere. She is an all-around great dog and will make her next family extremely happy.
