Roxy is a 12 month old Labrador x and is currently on foster in Caerphilly, South Wales.

The Roxy Fact File

Dog status: Good
Cat status: Good but excitable
Child status: Unsure around small children, can be rehomed with children aged 10 years plus
House training: Good in the day, reluctant to have her last wee in the garden as the poor thing is scared of the dark!
Home alone: Good for a few hours
Basic training: Sit, down, stay, paw, no, - very clever and biddable

Roxy is such a sweet natured and loving dog. She came to us from the pound so we have no past history for her. She is a Labrador cross, possibly with staffie. She has moved in to a foster home and is now living with another dog, cats and rabbits.

At home she can be bossy with the other female dog that she lives with. She may be best as rehomed as a single dog or with male companions to reduce any rivalry. She has been good with dogs she has met out on her walks.
Roxy is living with cats and has had a couple of moments where she has become over excited and chased. However, on the whole she has been good with them. She could be rehomed with cats that are used to living with dogs.

Roxy is house trained in the daytime but can sometimes have accidents at night. When it becomes dark she can become nervy outdoors and does not want to go in to the garden last thing at night, even with human company she wants to wait by the back door to go back in again. This could be a sign she has been shut out at night in a previous home or could be an underlying anxiety. She will need time to settle and will need careful work to help her to grow in confidence in the garden. Any accidents in the house cannot be punished as she is a nervy girl and any punishment will make her feel more worried.

Roxy has been left for up to 3 hours by her foster family and has been good while she has been on her own. She has learnt the basics and walks nicely on the lead out on her walks. She is very car sick and this is something that will need to be worked on. This will need to be considered when potential owners consider rehoming her if there will be a long journey to her new home as she will be a bit out of sorts when she arrives until her feet are back on solid ground!

Roxy has shown some nerves around fast moving and noisy children. ideally she will find a new home without children but could be rehomed with older children who are used to dogs and can help her to learn to trust.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family. Hope Rescue rehomes throughout the UK. A Pre-Home Interest Form can be downloaded from www.hoperescue.org.uk and should be returned to dogs@hoperescue.org.uk

Here’s Roxy just woke up from a snooze
She is more confident every day and a pleasure to have around

Roxy is a loving, handsome and willing dog, she has perfect recall, walks well on the lead, knows sit, paw, down, and learning more every day. She will be an affectionate and loyal dog for her forever home and will make someone very happy
She's come on in leaps & bounds since we first got her. She still raises her hackles a fair bit, but it's fear, not aggression, and she's learned to play nicely with Betty, and even with Jackson the cat!
Considering she was terrified of cats and had obviously never played with another dog when she first came here, this is great progress.
She also walks to heel nicely and her recall is very good - as good as Betty's and she's had months of training classes!
All in all, a lovely little dog - just don't leave her alone in the kitchen with a cake!

Roxy is doing so well in her foster home, she is now a very easy dog to manage and has picked up training very quickly and as she has grown in confidence, all issues have melted away. Roxy is now an obedient, loving dog, keen to please and a joy to have around.
