Roxie lives in southern New England with a family who rescued and fostered her about six years ago for a rescue organization.  They were “foster failures” and decided to keep her because she had “some issues.”  Roxie had spent most of her life in a crate with very little human interaction and if there was any, it was probably abusive.   She is now 10 years old, weighs about 9 lbs, is in good health, spayed, up to date on vaccinations and loves to cuddle.  She is also comfortable staying in her crate when needed and is reliable on commands such as come and sit.  Currently she lives in a neighborhood without sidewalks so she doesn’t go for many walks; however, when she does she walks nicely on a leash.  She has no experience with cats and seems to be okay around other dogs although she likes to get her way. 

Her family is in the process of adopting children and in the course of the social worker’s home study, it was determined that Roxie would need to be rehomed since she  has been known to snap and is food aggressive.   Her family is upset about her having to be rehomed and we want to help them find the right home for Roxie.  She would do best in a female adult home. She loves her male owner but is not comfortable around other men.  The family can not proceed with the adoption process until Roxie has found a new home.  If you are interested in making Roxie a part of your family, please contact Affenpincher Rescue of America  This email address is being protected from spambots.
