Hi! My name is Roxette. I’m a 9-year-old chihuahua-dachshund mix, all 12 pounds of me, and I’m looking
for the perfect family to call my own. I’m a truly sweet girl who has become very fearful through several scary experiences, so I take time and some effort to trust new people. Now I’ve gained a lot more confidence; once I get to know you I can be your best friend for life! I’ve been looking for a home since December 2015. Can you make 2017 the year that I finally find a loving home?

I love to sunbathe in the Summer and snuggle near a warm fire in the Winter. I prioritize being cozy and comfortable above all else. Give me a warm doggie bed or a soft lap, and I’m a happy girl. I could win any napping contest and I also enjoy slow, meandering walks and going on adventures. I’m a joy in the car and I am a quiet and easy-going girl in the house. My foster mom says I’m a low-maintenance girl who is easy to love.

I’m looking for a lifetime companion. It’s okay if you work full-time outside of the home. I don’t mind napping while you are away, as long as I get some kisses when you come home. I enjoy respectful older children and I don’t mind dogs of any size, as long as they respect my space and aren’t too rambunctious. I won’t bat an eyelash at kitties either!
I really love food, which my foster mom said makes training fun. Because I’m a mature girl, I already know the basics such as crate training, house training, and walking nicely on a leash. But now I’m learning all kinds of new tricks like ‘sit’ and ‘touch.’ It’s never too late to learn!

Come check me out, you won’t regret it! I’m available for adoption through Motley Zoo Animal Rescue, and I’m living in Shoreline WA. They are looking for an experienced home that is patient and willing to help me learn to trust. They say I’m worth all the effort and more!
