Roxy is a sweet 6 month old Mastiff x girl. She is a beautiful and affectionate puppy who has lovely golden brown eyes that match her golden brown coat.
Roxy adores playing games with adults and children or smooching up for a neck and belly scratch. Roxy is familiar with families with young children – she currently lives with a 1-year-old, 9-year-old and an 11-year-old. She plays wonderfully with the older children who can play tug-o-war with her. She would love a home with someone, whether it be a single person, a couple or family who will spend time walking and playing with her each day as well as taking her on outings.
Roxy is very obedient and just wants to please everyone. She is an eager learner and will sit with on verbal command, with and without treats. She will also sit before getting her dinner or a tasty bone. Her excitable nature means she sometimes forgets to stay after sitting but she is working really hard to master this skill. Roxy is quick to respond to her name and comes cheerfully. Being a puppy, Roxy still attempts to play wrestling games but is quickly working out that her soft toys are more fun. Roxy does have a tendency to have a short bark when strangers are about but because she has quickly learnt how to self soothe, she settles quickly.
Roxy enjoys going out for a walk to explore the world. On her daily walks, Roxy is very comfortable on her lead and happily walks beside her walker and is learning to sit before crossing the road. Roxy is very intrigued by the little insects she finds along the way.
Roxy loves a chat with a neighbouring dog which is entertaining to listen to. With her being a smart girl, she knows when the conversation has finished and runs off to find her rope or favourite chew toys. Roxy is a very social dog and thoroughly enjoys playing at the beach or dog park, making new doggie and human friends wherever she goes.
Roxy will be a wonderful family dog and can’t wait to give her new family lots of love and cuddles.
