Adoptable Pet Spotlight: Meet Roxy

Today’s PetMeds adoptable pet spotlight is on Roxy, a very sweet Jack Russell/Foxhound mix located in Lighthouse Point, Florida:

Roxy is a Jack Russell/Foxhound mix located in south Florida.

I am a female Jack Russell/Foxhound mix. My family moved away and left me with a bowl of food in the back yard and then packed up and moved.  I was found under a wooden patio deck with my empty bowl and was very frightened. I then went to the Animal Shelter for two weeks until my friends at SOS 4 Paws rescued me and gave me a second chance.  I have been abused in the past as I do  lie down to the ground when you come up to pet me.

My foster mom and dad picked me up on 4/25/12 and brought me home. I am already spayed, have all my shots, all my pet meds, heartworm negative, and I have a microchip. I am very healthy. I like car rides and I appear to be housebroken. I love to be rubbed and when you stop I push your hand with my nose to tell you I want more. I love to roll over and be rubbed and move around with pure joy. I am very non-aggressive and get along with my new foster brother and sister canines and the cats that have come in my path and I don’t even pay attention to them. I love my walks. After one day of being with my foster family, they can tell that I am going to be a very loyal and calm companion. They took me to a friend’s house and while everyone was talking I just lay down and went to sleep until it was time to go.  I am very happy and would love to have a loving home of my own. I will have my paws crossed and hope that you will call.
