Beautiful Roxy is a 9 year old German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix who is searching for her forever home. She was adopted from us as a young pup but was returned because, sadly, her dad passed away and her mom was unable to care for her. She’s waiting for a home to call her own and, boy, will she make a great addition to your family! She is incredibly friendly, sweet, full of energy and fun to be with! She loves to run and play fetch, knows some commands and is house trained. This girl just LOVES children! She will actually run to them holding her favorite toy to see if they’d like to play with her!

Our stunning Roxy enjoys long walks and walks well on leash. She loves attention and will flourish as the only pet in the household. She’s also content to sit by her person’s side and enjoy the company. Every once in a while she wouldn’t mind a belly scratch.

Roxy is a favorite around the shelter. At times, her eyes are sad because she knows she belongs in a home and can’t understand why she’s being overlooked. Her face literally lights up when she’s shown attention. She can be somewhat reactive when she sees another dog but she can be redirected. She will do best in a home with a fenced yard where she can exercise and play with her family. This wonderful dog will give you a lifetime of unconditional love and is well worth getting to know.

Roxy is spayed, microchipped, heart worm free, and up to date on all vaccines. She is currently in foster. Please fill out the adoption application on our website using a laptop or desktop (no phone or tablet, please) at if you are ready to meet this wonderful dog. Kindly keep in mind that our adoptions are local (NYC area and Long Island).
