Roxy a beautiful brown and black Australian Shepherd mix came from a high kill shelter in the south. Save The Animals Rescue Team II (START II) was called for help in saving her as people saw her natural beauty. Roxy, approximately 1 ½ years old recently came to Englewood where the non-profit, volunteer, no-kill rescue group has been taking care of her and will continue until she is adopted into a loving home.

No one knows exactly what Roxy’s rough start in life was like, but she is shy, does not like cats however, good with other dogs.  Roxy is considered a high energy dog, so a yard would be best for her.  Volunteers noticed she is a bit skittish of men however, once she knows you, she will be your best and loyal friend.  Because of her high energy level, volunteers feel she would be a good family dog with slightly older children.

Roxy is spayed and up to date on all of her routine shots.  Roxy and her friends are up for adoption at START II.  If you are interested in meeting Roxy, please fill out an online application at or call the shelter at 201-797-8861.  Also find us on facebook at
