Roxanne was lucky enough to be rescued from a dog fighting ring. We can only guess the unfortunate events that occurred in her life prior to coming to us. But even still, she is a very happy, social, and playful girl.

Waiting for a forever home since April 7, 2017

OPTIMISTIC and alert, accepting her life at the New Hampshire Humane Society; this is Roxanne, Staffordshire Terrier aged just two years old.

Roxanne has never actually enjoyed the comforts of a home, she came from New Jersey, and travelled to New Hampshire.  Roxanne had been living at a sister shelter in the Granite State, and perhaps that well documented, ugly and true concept of the 'Black Dog Syndrome' is at play, there was no interest from the adopting public.  So, she came to us in the hopes a new location might help her find a forever home.

Roxanne does have some requirements, - she must be the only dog in your household, and would do best living with adults, since she has had zero experience with children.  We would love to find a committed, permanent home for her with savvy dog owners who are energetic, great pack leaders, understand the exercise needs of this sturdy girl, but can give her a secure, safe environment to blossom. Perhaps watching that Netflix documentary- The Champions – would be a good homework assignment for those who are interested.
