3½ year old Roxie is now available for rehoming. She is neutered and microchipped but is not vaccinated. She is staying with her current owners until she can be adopted and they will bring her to us for any viewings.
Roxie is a gorgeous little girl who was with us briefly last year (then called Beau) but due to a change in the circumstances of her owners she needs to find a new home. The previous owner describes Roxie as “the most wonderful dog.”
A summary of the sort of home for Roxie is:
No dogs or cats
No children in the home under the age of 10
An active home, Roxie has a lot of energy so good long brisk walks, plenty of play
Only short periods left alone, e.g. shopping trips. She will not suit a home where people are at work.
Roxie can be reactive to dogs on walk, by jumping and being occasionally vocal
Roxie needs an active home, where she will get plenty of exercise and play. We are particularly keen on an active home, and owners who we believe will best give Roxie the activities and exercise she needs as a young and energetic dog.
Roxie does not like dogs or cats, and therefore we are looking for a home without dogs or cats. She loves her walks but is not keen on meeting other dogs, and may react to other dogs by lunging towards them. This does not happen with all dogs, but you need to be aware that she is not keen on meeting them.
Roxie is good with children, but she has not lived with children before. Therefore for homes with children (or regularly visiting children) the youngest child would need to be 10 years and above.
She is a real people-dog, and loves to snuggle up on the sofa. She is not keen on being left alone, and therefore we are prioritising homes that have someone at home most of the day – not leaving her to go for periods of work. Ideally shopping trip lengths of time alone would be best for her.
Roxie enjoys playing, particularly with rope toys, tug of war or “find it” but doesn’t play fetch.
Every evening before bed Roxie loves to have a Dentastik.
In the car Roxie prefers to sit in the front (with a harness), otherwise she is a moaning passenger in the back. She is not much of a keen traveller but has not been travel sick.
Meeting new people Roxie can get quite excited and jump up, but if you ignore her she will calm down. She has not lived with children but her previous owner says she “is fine when she meets them.”
Roxie is described by her previous owner as “a fabulous dog and companion, all she wants is to be in company of her owners and have lots of fuss,” and “a very characterful dog who loves the affection of people. She has a lot of love to give, and loves to give it back.”
Roxie is currently fed chicken flavour Symply Food. She loves chicken and cheese as high reward treats
