Shar Pei - Young - Female
Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotsPrefers No CatsPrefers No Dogs

Roxy is approximately 1 1/2 yrs and 30-35 lbs. She’s very affectionate and loves attention! Roxy is slowly learning that other dogs might be ok and cool to hang around, but she’s not there yet. In her young life, she likely hadn’t met other dogs or received much training, so we’re currently seeking a home where she can be the one and only in your home! If you’re looking for a playmate for a current dog, Roxy likely isn’t the right match. If you’re a home that loves to have one dog at a time, then Roxy could very well be the one!
She is high energy, but totally melts when given head/face/chin scratches and belly/chest/side rubs. Roxy would do well being with an individual or active family that allows her time to exercise on a regular basis. Roxy is so adorable and young. Her best years are yet to come!. She has done so well two of our younger volunteers ages 7 and 10, but we’re recommending a home with children 10 yrs and older because Roxy occasionally jumps for attention. In her first home, she was raised with a toddler, however, this gal has been passed along a few times before arriving with us a stray. We just want to find some stability for her, in a forever home where she can receive the one-on-one time she deserves.

For adoption inquiries, please contact Kelly, our Adoption Coordinator, at or inquire directly via Petfinder. We are a volunteer-based humane society; please be patient with our response time to your inquiries. We are not able to assess dogs with cats since we are a small, rural shelter set up for dog intake only. We may be able to provide an opinion on how a dog may get along with cats, but behavior in your home is unknown until they would be properly introduced under supervision. For inquiries regarding a dog’s behavior with small children, the majority of our shelter dogs are unclaimed strays & we have limited or no history. We always recommend a meet and greet with our dogs available for adoption.

Taylor County is rescue friendly! If you are a rescue, please contact our Rescue Coordinator, Diana, at
