Roxie- available at Tired Dog Rescue. She’s an 8yr old Shitzu. Can be nippy when startled or touched certain ways. Evidently she had little to no human contact in her past life & she doesn’t know what to do. She’s got dermatitis which is undergoing treatment & is responding well witg new meds. She takes a pill twice daily. She will need frequent grooming since she hates being brushed. She’s overweight at 22lbs but considering she came in at 27lbs that’s awesome. Her girlish figure will be back in no time. But guess what, she won’t pee on your floor. Her potty manners are impeccable. She loves sleeping in a crate & shows her appreciation by snoring like a grown man. She’s great just needs her space & an adopter that is patient & understanding to her specific needs. I wouldn’t recommend a home with small children or dogs that bark a lot. She would do well with older responsible kids with dog handling experience that would understand her boundaries. As for being cat friendly, I have no idea, as long as they don’t get in her face it should be okay. I will be cat testing her soon Roxie tends to bond with one person as of now. She will let you pet her, she gets excited when I come home. She just likes her space & privacy, she’s a mature lady after all. Please read carefully before placing your application at Tired Dog Rescue.
