Roxie is a 3 1/2 yr old Pit Bull Ambassador that has passed the AKC's Canine Good Citizen Program. This girl is what you call rock solid! She gets along great with other dogs and enjoys playgroups in the park, she has manners and is good on a leash. Roxie is the kind of dog you can take to your favorite outdoor café or to an outdoor art show. She is stocky, has spots like a cow and ears that stand up and flop and speak to you. She loves to play in the kiddie pool and enjoys getting baths. She loves to give kisses! She's not so crazy about cats, they make her nervous. Roxie is waiting for her furever home! You may meet her at Hillsborough County Animal Services. Please call 813-597-9529 for more information.
**The A.D.O.P.T. Program selects, screens and then trains Hillsborough County Animal Services (HCAS) shelter dogs in basic obedience, canine socialization and social manners preparing them for their forever home. All dogs that complete the seven week training period are evaluated for the AKC Good Citizen Certificate. Any dogs adopted through the ADOPT program receive support and training, if needed, for the dog's entire life.

The six-year-old girl who was viciously attacked by two pit bulls last week arrived home from the hospital Tuesday afternoon -- the same day the dogs' owner filed a request to get her pets back.
