Our son and family have recently adopted a gorgeous rescue dog, and we met her for the first time when we went to visit last week. Roxy is an adorable three-month old, black and white English Pointer.
She’s such a sweet little puppy, and everyone wants to make a fuss of her. She just laps up all the affection showered upon her.
It is said that Pointers are habitual “couch potatoes” who enjoy relaxing on the family’s chairs or sofas, and Roxy is no exception to the rule. In the evenings, she loves to snuggle up next to the family. She’s going to be a big dog when she grows up; just look at the size of those paws!
She’s shows a great interest in what’s going on around her, and doesn’t like to be left out of anything.
Although she’s such a friendly and happy little dog, she can sometimes look rather serious, and has the most soulful eyes.
She’s very energetic, and a few days ago, several rather large holes mysteriously appeared in the lawn. She enjoys exploring the garden, but I think what she loves most of all, is being inside the house with the family, which is apparently a natural part of this breed’s desire to feel part of the pack. Grooming her isn’t at all time-consuming, as her coat is very short, so just a quick rub with a soft brush is all that’s needed. I’m sure that she’s going to have a very happy life with the three grandchildren to play with.
I hope you’ve enjoyed meeting Roxy as much as I did. To see more bloggers’ pet pics, just click on the badge below.

Roxy is soooo cute – love her sweet eyes. ♥
Thanks so much, Sunshine. She’s adorable. 🙂
Wow, by the time you leave she will be SO familiar with the modelling scene!
Yes, she may even get to go on some photo shoots herself. 🙂
ed ecco anche la mia quota di risate!!
and here’s my share of laughter!
I’m so glad. 😀
What a cutie!
Thanks, Tilly. 🙂
Quite the cute lady 😉
Yes she is. 🙂
What a sweet expression Roxy has I can see he will be loved.
She really does have a very sweet little face. I’m sure that before too long, it will be a much bigger face. 🙂
Yes I was looking at her feet, they say dogs grow into their feet…
Yes they do. We were once adopted by a Doberman puppy who just wandered into our house. She was tiny, but had big feet. She definitely grew into them. 🙂
Thanks, Connie. She really is. 🙂
He knows that he is loved! I really do wonder if dogs are not the more advanced species!!
She is very happy with her new home. I think that the way dogs are able to show so much unconditional love, proves that they are far superior to humans.
Her eyes are very expressive …. it’s nice to see that more people are going to rescue centers for their pets. There are many that have so much love to share.
Sweet puppy ….
Yes they are, Issy. I think that many people are favouring the animal rescue centres these days. 🙂
What a beautiful little face and all the more special being a rescue dog. 🙂
Thanks, LuAnn. 🙂
What a gorgeous little dog ! … And i´m sure that her eyes can melt hearts everywhere … Her breed is going to be big and its a real challenge to have a dog like this, but mostly its fun and they give so much love and joy back … I can´t imagine a life without a dog // Maria 🙂
I’m sure you’re right about the challenge, Maria. It’s lovely to see how much our son and his children love her. 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous – I wish more people would ‘adopt’ a rescue animal.
Thanks so much. Yes, it’s definitely the way to go, if one wants a pet. 🙂
what a gorgeous pup! wishing them all many happy years together 🙂
Thanks so much, Christine. 🙂
What a cute pupster and great photos! Sounds like she picked a good home and family. With 3 kids, she’s going to get all of the attention and exercise she wants. Perfect!
Thanks, John. Yes, she’ll have a very happy life with the family. 🙂
She is adorable..
… she thought it was a big fox terrior, but I had to “dis a pointer!’ 🙂
😀 Thanks for the smiles, Col.
Rescue dogs are the best kind. 😉
Yes they are. Thanks, Gemma. 🙂
What a lovely puppy, she looks quite at home and I am sure she is going to give your family a lot of pleasure.
Thanks, Linda. Yes, I’m sure you’re right. 🙂
What a nice addition to your family! 🙂
Thanks, RoSy. 🙂
Nice little doggy ! But my – beautiful! 🙂
look what writes- just his – above the nose!
😀 Looks like a heart!
She is adorable!
Thanks, Marion. 🙂
Ilike this post! my friend have nice day with love maxima
Thanks so much, Stefan.
She’s cute and I’m sure she’s the perfect addition to the family.
Thanks, Gilly. 🙂
She’s lovely Sylvia. Lucky to get an English Pointer pup as a rescue dog I’d imagine. I’d imagine she will be quite boisterous and the holes in the lawn do not surprise me but that’s all part of the fun of raising a puppy isn’t it? 😉
Yes, I remember that my Doberman used to do the same, as well as nipping the heads off the agapanthus as soon as they bloomed. 🙂
What a doll baby!!!
Roxy is … a true heart-warmer. So cute … so joy that she has come to a good and lovable home.
Yes she is, Viveka. I’m sure she’ll be very happy. 🙂
She looks like she has come home. *smile
She’s beautiful. I love pointers — such gentle natures. One of my neighbours breeds and shows them. Her puppy that she’s kept from a recent litter got awarded runner-up as “best puppy in show” recently at a championship event.
Well done to your neighbour! Yes, Roxy is very affectionate, and we all love her to bits. 🙂
What a lovely pup AD .
Family life will suit her well by looks of it … plenty of company, walks and a place to call her own .. The Sofa 🙂
Hahaha. Yes, the sofa is fine for now, but I’m not sure if there’ll be room for anyone else, when she’s fully grown. Same goes for the bed. 🙂
She is. 🙂
So cute. Your description of Roxy fits with our own Thunder. They both look so affectionate and playful (and serious, too). 🙂
Thanks, Imelda. I love the name you’ve given to your dog. 🙂
What a LOVELY puppy. I can see she is a bird hunting dog, and that will probably mean you could get a handful sometimes. I know all about digging. Had to protect my garden from my maniac the first year, but he learned. Energetic, yes. My dog like some brain challanges when we are not running too much. Like finding and fetching, love this too…
Thanks, Bente. Yes, having a dog like this comes with many responsibilities, and I’m sure that training it properly is quite time-consuming, but well worth the effort.
What a lovely happy looking dog… sure gonna enjoy life there it seems…
Thanks, bulldog. I think life has just become more interesting for all concerned. 😀
She is lovely and so adorable… Blessing her. Thank you dear AD, love, nia
Thanks so much, Nia. 🙂 xx
She looks so totally adorable, ad! I love those paws. Thank you for sharing and taking part 🙂
Thanks for the lovely challenge, Michelle. Hugs to you. 🙂
She certainly looks like she’s part of the family. Its lovely to see she’s being so well cared for.
Thanks, Michelle. 🙂
I love it when a dog is saved and loved by his/her saviours!
A very happy ending. 🙂
What a splendid, happy, contented pup Roxy looks…but on the chairs? A difinite no no in our house.
We all..dogs and humans…came to an agreement..I won, t sleep in your bed if you don, t sleep on my chair..works well most of the time.
Happy life Roxy doxy xxxxxx
Thanks, Patrecia. Well, I’m sure that there’s more discipline in your house. It does take some effort, but it’s well worth it in the end.
What a lovely post! Absolutely love dogs – took me a long time to be a dog person, I was always a “cat person” now I love everything about them and think that Roxy is absolutely adorable! Sure she will have a long and happy life.
Take care and regards
Thanks so much, Gail. She is so adorable. 🙂
Sweet looking pup and if possible they must take the pup so socialisation classes, both for pup’s good and their good
Yes, you’re right, newsy. I hope they find the time in their busy schedule, as it’s really important.
Awwwwww, she is adorable!!!!!!!! 🙂
Delighted to meet your Roxy although I do have slight reservations about Pointers! We inherited a pure bred German pointer. A hunter brought her over on a hunting trip and then abandoned her (?). She ate the washing off the line, consumed bags of raw potatoes at any opportunity and would frequently get stuck between the burglar bars in her efforts to invade the house. There was a happy ending – TL’s sister adopted her and they lived happily ever after 🙂
Oh my goodness! This isn’t a German Pointer. Our son wanted one, but got an English Pointer instead. Hopefully the English are better behaved than the Germans. 😀
Had to laugh at this one….. of course the English are better behaved than the Germans!!! 😀
Goes without saying! 🙂
