This is Roxy the Catahoula Leopard Dog. She is going on 9 months old and was a rescue from Orange County Animal Services. Roxy was adopted at 6 weeks old and was found at around 3-4 weeks old by herself, placed in foster care. She was 6 pounds when we got her and she is now around 45 pounds. Roxy is very sweet, full of energy, and loves going to the dog park. She knows several tricks and enjoys learning new tricks. Roxy loves to play with her dachshund brothers and sisters and is also training to be a pet therapy dog. Roxy enjoys taking pictures as well and has her own Facebook: Facebook.com/roxythecatahoula with she has many pictures on Instagram, search #roxythecatahoula.
Roxy would like to be featured to bring recognition to her breed. Catahoulas are the state dog of Louisiana, but are not as common here in Florida.
