This is Roxanne and she is a sweetie! She is a 3-year-old border collie mix from Kentucky. She came to Minnesota covered in ticks, but has recovered nicely. And you should see her pretty teeth — she loves to chew her bones and you can see it in her pearly whites!
Roxy adores people and she loves to play! Right now she gets two walks a day or a trip to the dog park, and that activity keeps her super happy.
But for as much as she likes the rough and tumble outside, she’s a big snuggler and couch potato inside. She gets along well with cats, kids and dogs, so she’s an easy one to bring into your home. For adoption information, look here!
About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here.
