02-08-2019 Roxy is a 5 year old female Rottweiler who has come to us from a breeder.  She is quite a confident and brave girl who loves affection.  She is a chilled out and happy dog who walks on a lead and could be an only dog in the right home as we think she could possibly have live in a home at some time.  She may need house training but we don't think it would take her long to learn this is she does.

04-10-19 UPDATE

Roxy has been in foster for about six weeks, she's settled in well and lives alongside three dogs (big/small male/female)
She's very affectionate once she trusts you and loves to cuddle up during the evening either with myself or another dog, she eats alongside my dogs without any issues and gets very excited at the sight of her food bowl. Roxy can be left for a couple of hours but i do have to make sure anything chewable is out of reach as she will take it upon herself to reshape things to her liking ie shoes and slippers are her favorite items.
She loves going for a lead walk and has been social with other dogs whilst out, she does pull at times so will need ongoing training in this area. Roxy would be more than happy living with other dogs providing they will allow her to share their space.
Due to her being lame Roxy has had x rays done, they show she has an old crucitate problem in her right knee plus both her hips are in poor condition, both are managed by daily painkillers, it was not suggested any operations at this time, but please bear in mind this could change in the future plus would also not be insurable. Roxy is by far the biggest lap dog I've had the privilege to foster.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
