About roxy

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I recently moved to Colorado last August (2015) from Texas, where I was an adoption counselor and Adoption/Volunteer Coordinator at a no-kill animal shelter for three years.

I am currently working at a service dog organization in Henderson, Colorado and live in Lakewood. Prior to my current job, I have worked with dogs at groomers, doggie daycares, and dog boarding facilities. As well as pet sat anf fostered dogs of all ages for the past four years.

I have a large female golden retriever who loves every dog she's ever met and she loves cats as well! I adopted a cat right before moving out here, but do't worry--she thinks she's a dog. I have fostered dogs for the past four years and recently "Foster-failed" with my first Colorado foster dog named SHenzie. She is shy around people but LOVES other dogs!

No dog size is too much or too small for me! I love meeting any new furry friends that come my way. I work at my job Monday-Friday from 7am-3pm and I am more than able to keep dogs overnight. On weekends, my roommate and I typically take our dogs hiking with us or go to dog-friendly places. My roommate has a male, 5 yr old Shih Tzu. My roommate is gone a lot with her dog so usually it is just myself, my two dogs, and my cat in my apartment.

About my yard
I live in an apartment, so do not have a private yard, but my complex has a beautiful lake behind it with walking trails that I walk my dogs on every day.

My experience administering medication
From all of my experience both with pets of my own as well as working with animals for so long, I know how to vaccinate animals, as well as take out sutures and take blood if needed. I also know how to check to see if an animal is hydrated or not and can administer medication orally or any way needed.

Our 14 month Whoodle puppy AND 13 year old Rescue Poodle stayed with Roxy and her roommates for 10 days. We were completely pleased with the level of care, the pictures every day, the fun that our little guys obviously had. They came home relaxed and happy. We would highly recommend this host to anyone who needs a reliable and caring 'home away from home' for their little ones!

Roxy took such great care of my dog! It was my dog's first time being boarded, and Roxy made her feel part of her family.
