LebTown features a different Lebanon County pet each Friday to help us enter the weekend with the best vibes possible.

This week, meet Roxxie!

Roxxie is a shih tzu-poodle mix.

“We added her to our family in 2007,” says Deborah Elliott, of Lebanon. “Although she’s 15-1/2 years old now, these pictures were taken of her during her prime, and this is how I want everyone to know her.”

Roxxie, Deborah says, “is and has always been a spoiled little princess, and she is trained just enough to be our buddy. We spelled her name “R-O-X-X-I-E” because the Xs stand for kisses, which she gives in abundance.

“With an elderly dog, we take things day by day with her, but every day is a gift, and we are truly blessed and fortunate to have her.”

If you see Roxxie, be sure to give her an extra pat on the head!
