Roxy at A horse show watching the horses warm up.

Roxy has got a job to do!

I got Roxy on a small farm in Iowa. I wasn't looking for a dog but one look a her and i was hooked. I thought about her for 2 weeks before i traveled an hour and a half in the dark to pick up my puppy. We have been inseparable since. At an early age I got her started in the sport Flyball. We were on the Hawkeye Hustlers team in Cedar Rapids. She retired early as well due to complications with her back leg. Besides her obsession with the tennis ball, Roxy loves to go to the farm and hang out with her mom and the horses. Roxy has a magnetic personality, It doesn't matter who you are but if you can throw a stick/ ball/ frisbee you have a friend for life. Her attitude is she is always looking for a job weather it be retrieving a ball or helping mom move the horses from one place to the other.
