Roxy 2017

Happy New Year everyone! My resolution this year is to find my forever home. I have been working hard on my training and my foster family has gotten to know more about me. I require a special home with lots of patience, love and dedication to continue my training. I need lots of positive reinforcement and encouragement to help me feel less anxious. I want to be part of the pack but I need a strong pack leader who will not let me be the boss. I like when my routine is the same and I get to spend time with my people. I love my doggie friends and prefer male dogs as my company. I would also do well as an only dog where I can be center of attention. I have mastered sit and I am highly food motivated so that helps with my training. I love to run and play and my foster family catches me doing zoomies all around the back yard.
