Meet Roxy

Roxy was rescued under Duty of Care whilst the Pound tried to find her owners. As no one came forward, Roxy was transferred to DCH care. Roxy initially presented with a flea/skin infection which has come along way, and has exposed nerve roots in some teeth, 5 which will have to be removed. Roxy is a quiet girl and is okay with and without company, prefers to sleep on the end of a bed or curled up on a comfy circular bed.
Roxy is not a playful girl but does set a good pace when walking on a lead, preferring a collar to a harness. Roxy is non-reactive to other dogs and walks well.
Very occasionally, as with most small dogs, her trachea 'sticks', causing a strange choking sound, however it fixes itself after a few seconds.
Roxy has had a successful meet and greet and is likely to get adopted after her stitches are removed after surgery. If, however, the trial period is unsuccessful, the 'On Hold' stamp will be removed and Roxy will be looking for another furever home.

Roxy was adopted on 13 July 2020 after 4 weeks in foster care
