All about Roxy
Most dog owners are aware that dog noses are extremely sensitive. This is due to the quantity of olfactory or ‘smell’ receptors in a dog’s nose. Whereas humans have around five million olfactory receptors, dogs have two hundred and twenty million. This makes their noses exponentially more sensitive than a human’s. Most times a dog’s sensitive nose works to our benefit. All kinds of dogs are used as service dogs to help humans find missing people, sniff out explosives, drugs etc. They can smell people coming from quite a distance and alert us to their presence. There are some embarrassing occasions however, when a dog’s nose is just too sensitive from our human perspective. Most notably this occurs when dogs try to sniff humans in their private areas.
This behaviour is a common one in dogs and equally common is the fact that it upsets most dog owners. The reason some dogs sniff at a human’s private parts is the same reason they sniff the private parts of other dogs. We know that when they smell other dogs in this way they can tell the sex, rank (is the dog more dominant or submissive) age and other information about the dog.

My Name is Roxy. I am a super active dog. I'll play with 3 toys at once and you still won't be able to catch me.
I love being with my people!! I also love other animals, big or small I want to play with everyone that I meet. I especially like big dogs 10 times my size, like the neighbors Rotti. My favorite outdoors activity is running, inside the house I like to bury my greenies all over the place.
My dislikes include, kids that can't play nice, being left behind, and having my nails cut.
My favorite toy is my rubber squeaky football.
My best doggie friend is Kokanee, she is a Cataoula Hound X. Me and Kokanee can play for hours.
