Roxie urgently needs a foster home
Why is fostering needed?
I became homeless in April due to domestic violence and my dog Roxie was staying with my son. I am now living and working at tge Grand Canyon and my son gave me short notice that he is moving and cannot take Roxie with him. I am in the process of getting her approved to live here with ne as my emotional support animal. It should only take a few days or a week but then I also need a week for my daughter to be able to drive her here to me. I rescued Roxie 3 yrs ago and she means the world to me. She’s a good girl.
How long is fostering needed for?
A few weeks
Roxie is very affectionate and can be playful but also likes to relax. She loves Sun bathing and going for long walks. She is friendly with other dogs but can be very submissive so I just keep a close eye when she does play with other dogs. She likes chasing balls, stuffed toys, and playing tug. Not a picky eater but likes to graze, I never have to worry about her over-eating. At home she would sleep with me on the bed or if there’s carpet she might sleep on the floor.
The only behavior concerns I have ever had are that she is afraid of unfamiliar men and will back away or growl. With most of the men in my life, once she’s been around them a couple of times she isn’t afraid anymore and wants their attention. When she sees someone go for her leash she gets very excited and will stand on her hind legs and I have accidentally been scratched but nothing major. She will obey the command “sit” she just has to have her little burst of joy first lol. She loves kids and is gentle with the elderly. Overall Roxie is very sweet and loving. The best companion I have ever had and I love her dearly.
