Won't you adopt this young dog who appreciates rhymes? (Cleveland APL Pet of the Week)

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Animal Protective League has teamed up with Cleveland 19's Chief Meteorologist Jason Nicholas to find a home for one special dog or cat every Tuesday.

Watch the segment in the 4 p.m. show every Tuesday on Cleveland 19 News and like the Cleveland 19 News Facebook page for live videos with the pet.

Today the APL is bringing Roxie, a sweet and active 1-year-old Lab mix. She was found running around as a stray and the APL said they don't know much about her history.

Here's a quote from the rhyme-loving dog (provided by the APL):

"I'm Roxie and I have a whole lotta moxie! I love people of all sizes and I'll show you by giving lots of kisses. I'm a young and happy pup who will need some training, but give me a chance and make me a part of your family. I'm worth it!"

1729 Willey Ave.
Cleveland, Ohio  44113

Monday-Friday: 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday: Noon to 4 p.m.

The shelter is closed on New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

Did you know dog droppings can impact our groundwater, streams, and lake? When it rains, bacteria from doggie doo can soak into groundwater, or be carried by rainwater to storm sewers which carry the flow to nearby streams. In both cases, the water is not treated at a wastewater treatment plant, and that's not good for the environment.
