Pets of the Week October 1, 2018

The name Roxie sounds like it belongs to someone fun, playful, and carefree, and this time is no exception. Roxie is a sweet, good-natured pup with a heart of gold and a boatload of energy. She loves long walks and is quite the lady on-leash, so she’s hoping she’ll find someone who will take her on lots of outdoor adventures. Once she’s played herself out, this 10-month-old black and tan Shepherd mix desires nothing more than to have her belly rubbed and to get as many cuddles as she possibly can. Roxie is one of those truly special dogs that once you meet her, you want her in your life forever.

With a name like Tux, you might get the impression this kitty thinks of herself as an aristo-“cat,” but that is not the case, as she prefers the simple things in life, such as snuggling in her bed or enjoying the affections of her favorite people. She shows her appreciation for these quiet pleasures with a purr you can hear across the room. She’s a little over a year old, with a lovely black and white coat that includes a mask-like pattern on her face reminiscent of the Phantom of the Opera. Tux likes other cats, so she should be delighted to have other feline friends. Come meet sweet Tux today.
