Miss Roxy (or the Cindi Crawford of Corsos as her friends call her!!) has been very busy winning hearts!! Roxy has joined the pack in a new foster home and is doing amazingly. It has been discovered that Roxy LOVES to swim! She is an incredibly smart young lady, who knows how to open windows and get herself some fresh air! Roxy absolutely adores other dogs and would love a playmate who can keep up with her as she sprints around the yard. Roxy walks nicely on a leash however when she meets another dog she immediately thinks its time to play, so we are still working on polite introductions. Her foster mom has started teaching her some upper level obedience/rally commands and she is picking them up with ease. She is incredibly eager to please and loves to have a job! Roxy has also made great improvements with men, and as long as she is allowed to approach on her own terms, has shown that she can actually enjoy hanging out with the boys! This beautiful girl is a little over 2 years old now and would love a forever home with a doggy playmate to call her own. Someone who would consider doing higher level obedience or Rally classes with Roxy would be a huge plus as this girl loves to learn new things!
UPDATE 3/24/17: Roxy wanted to share these gorgeous pics courtesy of her fabulous foster family!
Update 1-19-2017: Roxy is making great progress in her foster home. We have learned so much more about her and will share it all here. When Roxy arrived in her foster home, she was terrified of her foster Dad. She would avoid him and eventually would run to her foster Mom for “safety” and then growl at her foster Dad. But, that has all gone away! Sadly, we learned that Roxy’s original owner (before the person who surrendered her to us) was NOT nice to her at all :-(. Thus, her reaction to men. Roxy is doing better and better with men and her foster parents continue to work on it with her (by making the men that meet her, the most wonderful people ever!) However, when she goes to her new family, they will need to continue this work. But, at her young age, she WILL get better and better until men don’t phase her at all. Roxy loves her foster dog siblings (2 Cane Corsos and a boston terrier). Roxy is house trained and doing well with commands.
Roxy is a 1.5 year old Cane Corso that was owned surrendered to us. She lived in a house with kids, so a household with kids 12+ is recommended. Roxy is dog friendly, but has not been tested with small dogs yet. Her previous owner says she trained her,”she now knows sit , down , come here ( semi-listens) , stand ( on her hind legs if you have a treat) , right paw , left paw , high five , and leave it. ”
Roxy will be up to date on vaccinations & microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Roxy, please fill out an adoption application.
