This month’s Adoption Spotlight is for a very special little dog named Roxette who is available for adoption in Redmond, WA through Motley Zoo Animal Rescue.
Roxette is very special to me because I am her foster mom and I love her dearly! This girl has been homeless since December 2015! WHAT!?! WHY!?! Well, part of the reason is that she is a shy girl who struggles with change and she takes time trusting new people.
This 9-year-old senior needs an adopter who is experienced and willing to help her past her fear. But trust me, this diamond in the rough is worth all the effort and more. Earning her trust is like slowly pealing back the petals of a rose and finding a pearl waiting inside.
But don’t take my word for it. Let’s let Roxette explain…
Hi! My name is Roxette. I’m a 9-year-old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix who is looking for the perfect family to call my own. I’m a sweet older girl who takes a little time to trust new people. Will you be patient and take some time to get to know me? Once we become friends, I will be your loyal companion for life!
I love to sunbathe in the Summer and snuggle near a warm fire in the Winter. I prioritize being cozy and comfortable above all else. Give me a warm doggie bed or a warm lap, and I’m a happy girl. I could win any napping contest, even against hibernating bears! I also enjoy slow, meandering walks and going on adventures. I’m a joy in the car and I am a quiet and easy-going girl in the house.
I’m looking for a longtime companion. It’s okay if you work full-time outside of the home. I don’t mind napping while you are away, as long as I get some kisses when you come home. I enjoy respectful older children and I don’t mind other dogs of any size, as long as they respect my space and aren’t too rambunctious. I might be tiny, but if a puppy is being naughty, I will remind them of their manners like any good Grandma would do. I won’t bat an eyelash at kitties either!
I really love food, which my foster mom said makes training really fun. Because I’m a mature girl, I already know the basics such as crate training, house training, and walking nicely on a leash. But now I’m learning all kinds of new tricks like ‘sit’ and ‘touch.’ Soon I will be taking a confidence class for shy dogs too, which will be lots of fun. Maybe you would like to do the class with me? It would help build our bond!
Come check me out, you won’t regret it!
