My Pet Pal: Roux
Hi, my name is Roux. Like my namesake I’m known for being saucy. I live with my parents in Niantic. We moved here from Brooklyn, N.Y. and I miss seeing my old friends on the block, so maybe I’ll make a new pet pal while I’m here. I enjoy long walks on the beach, trying new foods, and warning my parents when a stray animal has wandered into our yard. I am pretty stunning so be prepared to have people comment if I’m on your arm. My hobbies include running, sunbathing, and pretending I don’t hear people talking to me. Would love to find some pals who also love dining al fresco as much as I do!
