|German Shepherd||Large||Female||6 years|
This poor lass is 6 year Roxy. She is now vaccinated and 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 has been on a ‘special diet’ and a gentle exercise routine to build up her muscles. She is now looking absolutely stunning and while she has a couple more lbs. to lose, don’t we all?
Roxy now looks forward to her kennel breaks with our volunteers with a smile and a very waggy tail. She has enjoyed going to the local café and pub and even manages to have a little tipple now and again as a treat for being so good.
So far 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.
While Roxy enjoys her weekend outings and tries at every juncture to prove how wonderful she is by walking well on the lead and sitting when asked etc., she is now getting very impatient for a family to call her own. She is getting very reluctant to go back in her kennel and just lies down and looks up with loving eyes that say ‘Noooo please take me home’ it is absolutely heart wrenching.
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.
This girl has really come so far you would not believe she has learnt to trust and to live again. She has so much love to give and is more than ready to go to her forever home. Will you be the family that give her the chance to love you? You will not be disappointed…
