Tuesdays are always good days because we get to help find a home for pets at the Tri County Humane Society. We talked to Kate this morning and this week's adoptable pet is a great and obviously happy dog named Roxas. Meet Roxas
Roxas was adopted and returned two years later due to the resident dog not getting along with Roxas. Roxas has met dogs and done well with them as long as they respected his boundaries. Has met cats and doesn't mind them and will tend to leave them alone.
Would do better in a home with older children as he tends to not realize his size and knock over younger kids. A meet and greet is required with resident dogs to make sure it's a good fit. He is a friendly and energetic boy looking for his new home! He does have separation anxiety in his previous home, and would do best in a home with humans who will be around often and have plenty of patience to help him overcome his fear.

His previous owners said he does fine when not kenneled while they are gone but would sometimes dig through the garbage can. But if he was kenneled he would try and breakout and destroy his toys and blankets that were in his kennel. Is quite vocal when being kenneled. A Thundershirt has seemed to help him calm down in some situations as well as medication from the vet.
He was very sweet upon intake and enjoyed ear scratches. He is a playful pup loves playing fetch, even by himself. He enjoys being loved on and will "talk" to get your attention. Would benefit from having a variety of puzzle toys to keep his active mind busy.
His previous owners said he likes to cuddle with his people on the couch. Would also benefit from daily walks to help tire him out ~~He does, however, pull on the leash, so we recommend using and Emily Weiss Walkie (available in our Re-Tail Shoppe!) His previous owners said he enjoyed frequent trips to the dog park and got along well with the other dogs there.
This sweet boy has plenty of puppy energy and could use some training classes to teach him some manners For information on safe and effective training techniques, ask a staff member at the front desk.
He has been very social with people, and seems to especially enjoy belly rubs. Thank you to Dr. Jennifer Melling for neutering Roxas.
