Roxy is a special girl who came to us as part of a cruelty investigation.  Extremely nervous when she first arrived, she struggled to trust new people and was wary of handling. She had a poorly tummy too for which she has had tests and treatment for, along with her sore joints.

Now, eight months later, this delightful dog is now ready to start a new life chapter in a secure and happy home with a loving new owner - we just need to help her to find one! Although she's still unsure of new people, once she trusts and loves you, she is an affectionate and loving little girl.

Roxy loves to play and have fun, although she loves toys a little too much so we have to be very selective with her playthings or they last about five seconds! She is now happy to have a gentle groom too, especially if paired with a tasty goody or two.

She doesn't mind being around other dogs but she is very worried and wary around loud, really lively dogs.  Roxy much prefers a gentle sniff and potter with a like minded soul who isn't demanding anything of her.  We are looking for a home where Roxy can be the only dog for the moment so she can settle, bond with her new owners and have support and help her worries and fears without having to be concerned about sharing her family or resources.

Roxy is looking for an experienced and understanding dog home where any children are older teens and who have plenty of time to help our girl settle and overcome her worries and issues related to her past.  Her tummy and joint issues are now well managed but she will require lifelong medication to keep her happy and well.

Could you offer Roxy a bright and happy future?

Why I'm special

I've been in RSPCA care since October 2017 and even though I've been in kennels a while, I have blossomed here and have finally got a waggy tail and a big smile on my face.  My old life was so scary, I spent my time really unhappy and frightened and humans were the scariest things.  Now though, I know not all people are like that, the staff here have taught me new skills, I have fun and cuddles every day and now I look forward to seeing my carers as I love them dearly.  Due to my past, it takes me a little longer to trust, but once I do you have a best friend for life - I promise! I'm already a mature miss and I have never felt the care and security of a loving home, could you help me to find one now?
