Arrival Story: We adopted Roxy from a shelter when she was 1 1/2 years old. Her previous owner had died and she had been in the shelter for 3 months. She has been the smartest, best behaved dog I've ever had fromt he moment she came home. She has all the best qualities of pit bulls and labs!
Bio: She was in the shelter cage with another dog, so I asked the shelter worker if she was good with other dogs. He laughed and said, "As long as she can be the boss." That describes her perfectly. She is submissive to people, though she definitely knows what she wants and tries to convince you to do it.... but she's never submissive to other dogs, big or small, male or female. As long as she's the boss she's happy and sweet. :) Fortunately, we recently adopted a male dog who adores her and is so gentle and sweet in disposition that he wants nothing more than to make her happy and be allowed to cuddle with her. They are a perfect match. (He's twice her size, but hides behind her when he thinks there is danger....)
