About Knox

Knox was hit by a car prior to arriving at AARCS, and is still recovering from some internal injuries. Luckily, surgery was not required, but she has a few broken ribs that are still in the process of healing.

Meeting her, you would never know she had any injuries! She is so resilient and loving. While Knox may not know it, it is important that her adoptive family ensure she does not over exert herself so her ribs are able to fully heal. This means no rambunctious play or running sessions for some time, though she is cleared for walks. Once Knox has fully recovered, she would love to be with an active family who can satisfy her yearning for adventure.

“Hi, I’m Knox! It’s so great to meet you, can I have pets now, please? So far every human I’ve met has been just great. When I lean against them they always give me nice scritches and tell me how beautiful I am.

I LOVE going for walks! There are so many interesting smells! I get so excited that I forget my foster mom can’t always keep up. She doesn’t seem to get the hint that when I pull on the leash, I want her to go faster, so I’ve decided to compromise with her and am working on not pulling as much. Sometimes I forget when I see a squirrel or a rabbit though. They are just so fun to chase!

I’ve learned that “Leave It” means my foster mom wants to give me a snack though, so I allow the rodents to scamper away while I enjoy my treat. I’m still uncertain around other dogs, and have to remind them to keep their distance if they get too close. I always get something tasty from the snack pack when I see another dog though, so I’m starting to see that they aren’t as intimidating as I initially thought. I’d still rather be the only animal in your home though. Trust me, I give enough love that you won’t need another dog as long as I’m around.

When I’m at home, I love to just relax by your side. If I’m honest, I have severe FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), so when my foster mom leaves the house, I keep trying to remind her that she forgot to take me with her by giving a good loud shout. I don’t know if she’s hard of hearing or what, but once I realize she’s not coming back for me, I settle down and wait patiently for her to return. I like to keep the place pretty tidy, so you don’t have to worry about me getting into anything, or having an accident. I would do best in a detached home with minimal steps as I heal and start to feel better.

I’m just a mature lady, waiting for her perfect family to snuggle up with.” – xo, Knox
