Roxxy is likely a Jack Russell Terrier Mix. She was born around July 2006. She weighs 12 lbs.
If you are you looking for a running partner or a dog with which to do lure coursing or earth dog competitions, Roxxy may be the dog for you! She needs lots and lots of exercise. Then more exercise and lots and lots of training and guidance (to which she is quite responsive).
Roxxy is very independent with (did I mention this already?) an extremely high activity level. She lacks K9 to K9 social skills. She’s scrappy, yappy and rude. She only manages to stay out of trouble with the most easy going, best socialized or biggest dogs. Dog parks will not be on the radar screen for her anytime in the near or far future. Harnessing her boundless enthusiasm and high play drive into something more then reactive energy will be both the challenge and the reward.
While very dog savvy cats appear to be able to manage her behavior towards them, a kitty-free home would be best.
Roxxy is crate trained.
Training contract required.
Note: Roxxy will not be shown at all pet fairs. Please let us know if you are interested in meeting her so we are sure to bring her on that date.

Nike Animal Rescue Foundation
The Nike Animal Rescue Foundation (NARF) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization founded in 1985 in San Jose, California. NARF is dedicated to protecting dogs and cats. We strive to eliminate animal overpopulation through spay and neuter programs and public education. Our volunteers rescue and shelter cats and dogs in need. We provide medical care and locate quality, permanent homes for these animals. We are also a NO KILL shelter. The animals are fostered in our volunteer’s home; allowing us to give adopters a more complete background about their personality and how they get along with other animals, children, etc.

We serve the San Jose Bay Area and have frequent local pet fairs to provide opportunities to meet our cats and dogs in need of their forever homes.
First, decide on the kind of dog or cat you want (large, small, active, older, puppy, kitten, long hair, short hair, etc.) and find a few pets that fit your criteria on our web site.
Then either contact the foster home directly or visit us at our weekly pet fairs.
Next a NARF representative will conduct an interview to make sure that the pet of your choice is a good match.
The donation for dogs ranges from $200 – $300, and $120 for cats. This donation covers the cost of spaying or neutering, vaccinations, and microchipping. In some cases, a training contract may be required for our dogs with an additional deposit.
