Have you been scouring the internet for a young, gorgeous GSD with more drive than an F-350? Do you need a dog whose ball drive is through the roof? Who will work for a ball, even if it's really only ⅓ of the felt that actually makes up a ball, because that's all that's left, but she works for it like it's a Kong sized ball with a squeaker inside? Meet Roxxie!

Roxxie was born May 15, 2017. She is a very high drive working dog who is as smart as they come, has an enormous ball drive, is obedience trained (knows French, German, and English commands), gives off Malinois energy, and is a gorgeous spitfire of a pup. She's happy to chase down balls for hours, is potty trained, crate trained, great on a leash, a superb hiking or running partner, and is looking for someone who understands GSDs with this kind of drive. She didn't appear to have been socialized with other dogs and was very reactive when she came to us, but has learned to be civilized around other dogs and did well in a play-group setting. She needs someone with a low traffic home and working dog/GSD experience who understands dogs who will become overprotective if not given a life of structure.

Roxxie has IBD, so she eats a single protein rabbit kibble (no prescription needed) and does just fine.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
