She loves to receive all the pets and rubs you have to offer! Roxy’s favorite time of the day is snack time! Cheese and ham are her favorites.
Why did they come to Wise? Roxy’s owner unfortunately passed away and family members contacted WISE for help. Roxy has been adjusting well and receiving the best care! She is excited to find her forever home to spend her golden years with.
