Roxy 2017

Hi I’m Roxy.  I am a sweet girl who is about 2 to 3 years old.  I have beautiful round coal black eyes and velvety white fur. Before my life with BRBR I did not receive a lot of attention or any training.  Simply put, I spent most of my life in my crate.  When I was let out I was so excited I didn’t really know how to act so I got in trouble a lot.  I am now part of my foster family and I am working really hard on learning manners and improving my social skills.  I am also learning I can’t go potty in the house and how to walk on a leash.  When I got here I had no idea what toys were.  I thought my foster mom’s shoes and slippers where the best chew toys ever but now I know I have my very own toys like tug ropes, nyla bones and peanut butter stuffed bones!  Who knew how great these things are?! I also have other dogs and kids to play with here.  I really like the kids but I need to be reminded of my manners when I play with them and would do best in a home with teenagers or older.  I love to burn off energy by running zummies in the back yard with my doggies friends.   I need a home with lots of patience, love and kindness.  I must have an experienced pack leader who will continue to help me learn how to be the best boxer girl ever and devote time and energy to my training and socialization.  I promise I will keep working hard and learning new things so I am ready when my furever family comes along.  Until then, paws & kisses, Roxy.
