About Roxy

Roxy is a smooth-coated Chihuahua. She loves to sun bathe. She has never lived with cats but would most likely be fine with them. She is really hoping to go as a pair with her sister Olive. She is friendly with everyone of all ages, humans and animals. Sometimes it just takes her a little bit to warm up to people. She doesn’t show aggression with any toys, food, baths or when asleep. She has a very mild energy level and she really likes to spend some time outside. She does bark at unfamiliar people that approaches the house or yard but usually warms up to everyone in the house just fine. She is completely fine riding in the car. Sometimes she urinates in the house but she is pee pad trained. She is still working on her house breaking without pee pads. She sometimes does tries to bite at the vet especially with needle pokes, otherwise fine.
