This lovely lass is 10 year Roxy who arrived with us in October 2014. She is vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. We were asked to take Roxy in as an emergency case as her owner was unable to keep her. We were told she can be very protective in the home. Not used to children but good with large dogs.
Roxy came in a very scared overweight girl. She had back muscle wastage due to lack of exercise. Over the course of her time in kennels Roxy has undergone a total transformation in both appearance and character. She is now looking absolutely stunning! Roxy greets people she knows and trusts with a smile and a very waggy tail. She hasn’t been fazed by horses, donkeys or chickens but is a definite no to cats and care must be taken around small yappy dogs. Roxy really loves to play ball especially boomer ball. However she has no possession issues either of toys or food.
Roxy could potentially be protective in a home environment (but that’s a GSD trait). This can be managed by adopting simple safe strategies for introducing new people to the home. Whilst she is good with other large dogs out and about, she needs to be the only dog in the home. This girl has really come so far you would not believe she has learnt to trust and to live again.
The gorgeous Roxy had a wonderful life with Auntie Jan and Uncle Chris but has now gone over Rainbow Bridge as her back end finally decided it was enough.
