Rocking her tri-colour coat is Roxi who, between the age of 10 and 12 months, remains a puppy at heart: mischievous and playful, curious and headstrong. She’s also extremely sweet, very bright and a fast learner provided her lessons come with cookies! Not fond of her pen when left there after meals and still somewhat mouthy when trying to get her foster mom’s attention, she’s a paws-itive work in progress. Now for radiant Roxi to thrive, she’s best suited to an experienced home without cats or young children, committed to her ongoing training – including obedience classes – and to keeping her active and well loved fur-ever.

Note from the foster home:

She’s about 60 lbs

Roxy is longing for a fun-loving, active family. As a young (1 yr old), healthy girl, she is still learning some manners, such as not jumping up at people when she wants to say hi, and nipping at their hands for attention.  She is very sweet with all people, though too excitable for very small children.  She is very playful & good with all dogs.  However, she does like to pester small zippy dogs.  She is walking on leash in a much more relaxed manner, but can’t be trusted off leash without further training.  We recommend a household with no cats, no small dogs, a fenced yard (6ft high; she can jump over a 4 ft one when motivated) and someone willing to continue with her paw-sitive training.

Roxy has come a long way with her behaviour.  She is a smart girl and is learning some manners.  She will still take a person who can be a good leader, because she can be stubborn.  If she has been properly exercised, (a good 45-60 min walk or 30 run), she will rest at home by herself without concern.    She does also seem to suffer with some separation anxiety so would do best in a home where someone is home more or has the flexibility to work with her to start and getting her used to being left alone.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
