Roxy is an 8-month old Cavalier, who is being fostered in Newport, South Wales. She is a typical playful 8 months old puppy that is excited all the time and loves life. Roxy is a very quick learner and has learned to sit and wait for her treats just like her foster brother and sister.
Health Issues – Roxy has misshaped kidneys so her new family will need to immediately seek treatment for any water infections.
Out and about – She walks very well on the lead and enjoys being outside. She’s very inquisitive and will greet everyone she sees be it human or dog.
People – Roxy loves her humans but gets scared if you raise your voice and can be submissive if you shout. She is very loving likes to touching you or lying on your lap. Roxy loves children and will cuddle with children given the opportunity. She is the most loving girl that will jump up on her foster mum’s lap and put her face on her face and close her eyes waiting to be smoothed and loved. She loves cuddling with her foster mum and laying on her lap in the evenings.
Dogs – Roxy loves to play and needs a young playful brother or sister to burn off her energy. She can be quite persistent when she wants to play and can annoy a dog that is very laid back and doesn’t have her energy as she will keep goading them over and over, so a confident playful dog would be best as they can still put her in her place if needed.
Cats – She is fine with both cats and rabbits just a little bit inquisitive at times.
In the home – Her manners around food are not brilliant and she will steal. She is fine to be left for short periods. Roxy displays typical puppy behaviour and will chew things lying around. She will steal socks, pegs etc and will eat anything lying on the floor. Her toilet training is pretty much sorted and she loves nothing more than being out the garden, running up and down chasing anyone that wants to play with her. Roxy does not like it in a crate and will make a racket if put in one. She currently sleeps on the settee downstairs on her own and is quite happy with that as she usually passes out about 930pm and will give you a lovely wake up call early in the morning by barking telling you it’s now time to play.
Type of home – A home with a young confident playful brother or sister (possibly another cavalier as she has thrived in a foster home full of cavaliers) that can help burn her energy as she is happy playing exploring and having fun. She loves going on adventures walking and seeing the big world we live in.
