TEMPERAMENT: Roxy is a very loving and smart girl who loves her cuddles 
CHILDREN: 10 years plus 
Roxy came to us after a change in her owner’s circumstances. 
Roxy is currently in foster and doing well. She has just been spayed and is recovering nicely. Her foster mum says, “Avoid leaving tissue left around or receipts as she likes to shred them, but she loves treats and can work well with them. She can sit, wait, lie down and turn to voice commands or hand gestures when doing tricks – she’s a gem, a very smart girl. She loves to tug with toys and loves puzzle games but especially loves her Kong and her monkey toy. Going for walks is one of her favourite things and she’s a real snuggle bug. Roxy enjoys her walks and will greet strangers nicely.” 
Her behaviour with other dogs on walks has improved and in open areas at a distance she is excited but not aggressive. When she feels trapped she can show fear-based aggression. She should not be walked in tight spaces near other dogs as she will pull and lunge. 
The only way she will travel well is in a crate with the view obscured. 
Roxy has shown anxiety in kennels with the vet but her foster mum has been working on muzzle training with her. To this end, Roxy was recently taken to the vet for spaying and put on her muzzle with no problems and even had cuddles from the vet. 
Health issues: 
No known issues. 
Ideal home: 
As she has a high prey drive, she cannot be rehomed with any small furries and isn’t keen on hoovers and has to be distracted. A home with children over 10 only as she can be very bouncy when she’s excited and we have no history of her being with young children. She does need a very secure garden, she can jump very high. Like any dog, she will bark at the doorbell or knocks on the door and people walking by. She does have a habit of following you to the toilet and will pinch the toilet roll and run off with it, so preferably a home that has its toilet rolls under lock and key! She needs a family who are happy to walk her as she is energetic but also loves giving cuddles. 
Standard information: 
Roxy is spayed and microchipped. She has started her vaccinations and is due her second jab on 22/07/22 - this will be covered by SSC, if not done before adoption. 
She is currently in foster in Worcester but she can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet her at least twice where she is at the moment. 
There is an adoption donation of £120 for Roxy and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
