Hello.  My name is Roxie!  I’m a purebred Chesapeake Bay Retriever residing with Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in Asheville, NC.


I think I was born in September 2009.

Although I’m a big girl that needs lots of love, I’m sweet and gentle. Don’t worry, I’m completely house trained and won’t chew up your things. 

When I’m called I come immediately and I walk politely when on a leash.  Here they think I would make a great lap dog because I want lots of attention I’m eager to please.

Unfortunately my beautiful smile is sometimes mistaken for a snarl by those who don’t know Chessies. 

I’m a great indoor dog. I’m also a good guard dog.  I alert to any abnormal sounds inside or around the house otherwise I don’t bark.

I want to be an only dog.  I’m not keen on having other dogs at home.  My handlers say: “When the lighting is low during walks she will growl or lurch at other dogs.”  I want a loving family that has no other pets. 

I’m happy to meet and be petted by small children when on a walk.  However, at home I will protect my toys when chewing on them if approached without warning. 

If you are an experienced Chessie person, I’d make you a perfect companion.
