Roxy, pit bull terrier mix
Roxy is an adorable female pit bull terrier mix being kept at Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center.
Roxy has already been spayed.
Notes from Roxy's caretakers:
Roxy is still adjusting to this big place called a shelter, so her behavior here is a little quiet and reserved. Once she's in her new home, she may relax immediately and become much more social, or she may need a little more time and patience while she comes out of her shell at her own pace.
