Why hello – Roxxy here, yes with two xx ;) I’m Roxxy and foxy! I’m 3-4 year old Terrier/Chihuahua mix and about 10 pounds, maybe 11 pounds? What, it’s the holidays, no judging…I’m a homebody – people, food and treats are my favorite things in the whole wide world! I’m in my element with the holidays upon us; cuddling, laps and love.

I’m a little shy at first with new people but once I trust you all I want is to snuggle and warm your lap. I was brought into the Martinez shelter by a Good Samaritan and quickly became a staff favorite. Initially I was very timid but I’ve come a long way since being in my foster home over the last year and blossomed into quite the Chi butterfly. I learned to play with toys and walk on a leash just to name a few! I’m being fostered with a doggy pack of pups that range from 7 to 40 lbs; I get along great with all of them. I’d love to have a fur sibling in my forever home, but being the only Chi also sounds nice (wink wink).

Here’s a little more about me from my foster mom; she’s so great!
Roxxy is mostly focused on her person[s] & loves to cuddle for hours. Roxxy has an adorable habit of sometimes curling up like a pill bug if she is unsure about something & wants to be picked up to be told that everything is OK. Roxxy will tolerate a crate, but her happiness is being in your lap. She is well house-trained to a home where she has to the yard. She is still unsure taking walks & seems to find her most comfort being a homebody.

All I need is a lap and love! If I sound like the girl for you, let’s meet I’m not getting any younger!

*I’m a Grateful Dog/Power of Chi partnership pup, which means both rescues are working hard to find my forever home. Therefore, you may hear from either organization.
