Roxy came into rescue from a local shelter where she was owner released with no name and only information that she was good with kids, cats, and other dogs. Roxy is small, about 40 lbs, 21 inches, and recently had puppies. Her tail is docked too short and her dew claws are still on which makes no sense except to say she is pure bred but probably not well bred . She does well off lead and sticks close to her humans but she walked right over birds and seems to have no nose for hunting at all. She jumped the 4 foot fence with ease so she needs a secure yard with a 6 foot fence and to not be left in the yard when no one is home. Roxy is a pretty deep rust color and has a very nice looking face. She loves to sit in your lap and get all your attention. She did not play much with the other dogs and seemed to like the idea of being the only dog. Her foster home came very close to making her "their" dog but decided she needed to be spoiled as an only dog.

Sept 2006: Steve was a local home who had been on the waiting list for some time, looking for a V who would like his older cat. Steve adopted a V girl from a shelter at 9 years old and had the fortune to spend 6 more years with her. He felt that the only way to go was to take on another shelter dog needing a home and of course once you have a V, there is no other breed. Steve reports that all is going great with Roxy, that she loves the big yard and that Steve leaves the french doors open for her. Roxy will have a new name soon as that name is taken by the cat! We are sure that Roxy will be the toast of Logan, hiking the trails and hoping to keep up with the mountain bike.We know Steve will walk softly and carry a big stick to throw so she can chew, chew, chew :)
