You’ll Be Smitten with This Roxy Lady!

Serious sweetness alert!!!!!! Meet Roxy, an incredibly popular senior girl at the Pima Animal Care Center in Tucson. Shelter staff there describe her as cute, compact, gentle, and easygoing. They also add that this sweet senior steals hearts everywhere she goes, and every volunteer is smitten with her.

While they can’t say enough good things about her, neither can volunteers who visit with and walk her. Here’s what they have said about this little lady of a certain age:

“I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Roxy! She is so cute and so incredibly sweet. I make a point to spend time with her anytime I’m at PACC, and she is always so grateful for some attention and affection. I often take her to a play yard where she hops right up on the bench beside me for cuddles. She gives sweet kisses and is just a total doll. Someone will be so lucky to have this little lady in their life!”

“Instantly smitten with this darling girl! Sweet, sensitive, mellow, quiet, and eager for affection. She’s an easy-going gal who’s a little bit shy at first but warms up easily with kind and gentle people. She’s simple to leash up and is a really good walker. And don’t let her age fool you. She has plenty of pep in her step and just the right amount of energy. She’s also smart and when offered treats, she’ll show you that she knows how to sit and stay.”
