Roxie is the sweetest old gal you'll ever meet! A huge fan of head pets and ear scratches, Roxie also enjoys being the little spoon when cuddled. As part of her weight loss journey, daily walks and runs have been incorporated into her schedule, going for at least four miles every morning.
She loves to run for the first mile and then tires out, so we adjust and switch to a fast-paced walk.

Roxie has acclimated incredibly well to living in a home. While some shyness is expected in the first week in a new place, she can quickly explore her surroundings and let her curiosity guide her. Roxie is also a huge fan of naps and loves to lay under the desk while humans work.

Her personality is absolutely amazing! She is so friendly and loving and understanding. Roxie can be left alone and likely appreciates having the place to herself, as she doesn't touch a thing that is not hers.

Roxie is looking to be the next addition to your home! If you can give her lots of pets, cuddles, and scratches, she is sure to be your best friend. Come meet Roxie!
Come meet your new best friend
