Adding one of these sprightly characters to your family brings you laughter and the best kind of companionship.



This is Princess Roxy! She is a little, light brindle sweetheart, with the biggest, most beautiful brown eyes to prove it! Roxy will be 4 years old in July. She still has her puppy playfulness.  Roxy loves to play fetch with the ball or a stick, but will tease you with them, as she won't give them up! She comes back to you with them and then turns and runs with it! Roxy loves her daily walks to the beach with her foster sister, but would rather just watch her sister play in the water, as a princess cannot get her feet wet.
        It took about 4 days for Roxy to get used to her foster sister Coco, but now they have become best friends. Roxy knows her place and she minds her manners and always waits her turn. She definitely lets you know if she isn't happy about it though, as she has the most priceless facial expressions that just melts your heart away. When her foster Mama is cuddling with Coco, Roxy sits back and watches and gives the saddest , head down, eyes up look with a little bit of whining, just to let us know that she feels left out and wants her turn for some loving, it kills me every time. Roxy truly does have a lot of  character. 
       Roxy does not have to be crated, as she is a real princess and will never make a mess in the house. She is so well behaved, that she sits for her treats and always waits her turn for everything. You just can't help, but to fall in love with her! 
       Roxy has met a few strangers ( no children yet) and lets out a few barks, but then she remembers her manners. She won't jump on you, but she will give kisses!  Car rides and wind in her fur are a favourite past time of hers! Where you go Roxy goes!! Roxy always tries for shotgun, but her foster sister usually wins. The one thing Roxy won't let her foster sister get away with, is sharing her toys!! Roxy is learning to share though.
       Who needs an alarm clock every morning, when you have a sweetheart to wake you up!!! Every morning between 7am-8am, Roxy comes to the side of my bed and puts her head on the edge and speaks to me gently, wagging her stubby tail. She says '' Please get up, I really need to go outside, now!! ''Roxy never misses a beat!! This little girl is going to make someone deserving, a very happy fur parent!! Roxy deserves a palace, full of love and appreciation for all the love and loyalty she has to give back!!!
