Video by Patty Stocker

Roxy is a 12-year-old, female, pit bull mix available now for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society. Described by shelter staff as sweet and mild-mannered, Roxy is full of life and full of energy despite her age.

“She’s a wonderfully sweet girl,” said Crystal Arnott, the shelter’s Marketing and Fundraising Manager. “She loves people; she loves to be around people. Her favorite thing to do is roll around on her back and show you her belly and of course, get a few good belly rubs. We love having her here at the shelter.”¬† Arnott also mentioned¬† that Roxy likes car rides.

Roxy will do well in a home with older children and mellow dogs. Adoptions at the Lowell Humane Society are by appointment only. Interested adopters can contact the Lowell Humane Society at 978-452-7781 to set up an appointment to meet Roxy or visit their website at for more information.
