Roxie after her Spa Day
Roxie is 2 months old and one of the smartest dogs we've ever had. She can already speak for her treats and her potty training has gone very well, not so for her brother Simon. They have been a Godsend for our 19 year old Jack Russel-Schnauser mix, Rusty. We thought we were going to have to put him down but since they've arrived he has done a 180 and is now playing with them and showing them the ropes. Every morning when he comes downstairs Roxie is there with kisses for him and they all eat together with no growling or crowding and every once in a while Roxie will cuddle up with Rusty on his bed by the window and he will allow her to stay. Roxie and her brother Simon have been the best dogs we've had since Rusty, they never chew on shoes or furniture like their siblings. They do however chew on each other. Roxie will hide behind the wall and pounce on Simon like a cat when he walks by and then he will pin her down and the chase will begin! When she's ready to sleep she will sratch on my leg to be picked up on the couch and drift off to dreamland and more often than not you can hear her little barks while dreaming.
