We are Roxie’s Pet Sitting
Meet Rick & Monica Kizziar
Rick and Monica were fortunate to find each other in the summer of 2014 and wed the following summer in the same exact spot they saw each other for the first time. Rick and Monica have a blended family of 5 children and 8 grandchildren plus countless granddoggos and grandkitties. They share their home in Rowlett, TX with their four dogs: Scarlett (Wirehaired Dachshund), Simon (Papillon), Spencer (Shorkie) and Zeus (Chiweenie). With Monica having been heavily involved in pet rescue over many years, and Rick and Monica having started a pet rehoming and fostering organization in 2015 it made perfect sense for them to enhance their passion of working with animals by launching their own pet sitting and dog walking organization of which they lovingly named in memory of their pet Boxer, Roxie, that earned her heavenly wings in November 2015.

Lindsey is the reason for the namesake of our business. Lindsey is the youngest daughter of the founders and it was Roxie, her dog that passed away 8 months prior to the business launch. Rick and Monica asked for Lindsey’s blessing to name the business after her beloved dog and now, here we are, growing by leaps and bounds keeping Roxie’s memory close to our heart each and every day. Lindsey has been with the business since inception, coming on full time after her high school graduation in 2018. She hard working and takes the utmost pride in our family business and caring deeply for each of the pets in her care. In her words, she shares the following, “I am a Halloween baby. My dog is my heart and he’s a Papillon named Simon. My boyfriend and I also adopted a American Bulldog that, at only 9 months old, you could tell he was a bait dog or got in many tangos with another not-so-friendly dog. We are so happy we found him; or did he find us? I enjoy art and learning about the brain functions of humans and animals. I have social anxiety which I am working through with the help of my mom & my boyfriend (Tony). My dog, Simon, is a registered ESA which brings me great comfort when I need him close by. I love nature and I want to explore the world with Tony who also desires to travel. In regards of my job, I love animals with a passion. I believe they are the sweetest things to walk the Earth. Every animal has a heart, mind, and a soul which is a beautiful thing. Recently I’ve been on a journey of self-discovery and have found that I want to pursue veganism in the near future. I have strong feelings for every creature and believe I can be a voice for them.” Lindsey services a large area: Garland, Heath, Mesquite, Rowlett, Rockwall, and parts of Sachse and Sunnyvale.
Lynn is a new addition to TeamRoxies (2020) and we are so glad she joined us. She is a phenomenal pet care provider to our clients in Forney. She was born and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania. She and her husband, Josh, moved to Texas in the summer of 2013. Lynn is a momma to two adorable toddlers, and a furmomma to their dog, Shadow (Border/Terrier mix,) and rabbit, Fluffernutter (Rex/Lionshead mix.) She is also a professional baker/cake decorator (Bake My Day Baking) working out of their home so she can be at home with her littles. Lynn tells us (which we can totally see) that she is the type of person at a party who, instead of socializing a ton, is probably sitting on the floor with the host’s pet. Those are exactly the type of pet care givers we want on staff. She also tells us that her husband, who owns a remodeling business, knows that if they ever find themselves with a ton of extra money, he is building her a habitat to house a multitude of animals. YES! We love this. In her words, “I am looking forward to getting to love on and care for your furbabies!”
Michelle is another of our great 2020 additions to TeamRoxies. She shares her home in Forney with her husband Terry and their beloved Yorkie, Sparky. They are a proud Lolly & Pop to two granddaughters and two granddoggos. In one way or another she has trained, groomed, photographed, fostered and adopted dogs, cats, lizards, fish and horses. So much an avid pet lover that when her husband loses her when they are out and about he always knows to go to where there is a dog or cat or other animals and he will soon find his wife nearby. Michelle proudly serves the Forney area.
Regina Bohannon is a Texas Native, and grew up in Garland. She discovered a love for animals, dogs in particular, after she got her first dog, a Sheltie, as an adult. Shortly thereafter she left her office job to return to college and earned a degree in Veterinary Technology. Since then she’s worked in many different veterinary settings including emergency and critical care. Joining our Team in Jan. 2020, we are super excited to have her on our staff as she contributes not only her passion for animals but her medical and behavioral knowledge of them as well to our pet clients. Regina now resides in Rowlett with her wife, Karen and their 4 dogs and a very silly Umbrella Cockatoo. Regina happily services our Rowlett, Garland, Rockwall and Sachse areas.
Your pets are our priority
