Coat Colour and Length:  Semi haired black and tan (gingery tan)  
Neutered:  spayed

Notes on how the dog reacts to dogs:   WOULD SUIT A DOG FREE HOME  
Notes on how the dog reacts to cats:   WOULD SUIT A CAT FREE HOME  
How the dog reacts to people in general and strangers: Roxy is alittle nervous when people approach her and spook her, she needs an experienced home which can work on building up her confidence, she will be a great companion with the right owners. Roxy is doing so well now in kennels and is growing with confidence, she will need an experienced home which can provide her with plenty of love and patience too.  
How the dog reacts to children / limitations with children:

Our rehoming policy when a dog has been found as a stray is rehoming with children 9-12yrs onwards or preferably with no children. - Roxy has no experience with children.

Grooming experience:

 has been groomed but will be groomed again as her coat was so badly matted, she was ok being groomed.


*End of July 2016, as Roxy's coat was so matted she was clipped away before coming into our kennels, her coat was still in quite a mess, so we decided a full clip off from the neck back was needed, we did this and her coat is looking amazing and growing back very well now, it will be a few months before its looking alot better, and a couple of good moults will be needed but her coat is in such better condition.


Current Location of Dog:


 Now in kennels in South Yorkshire  
Medical History/Current medical issues:

Wormer Due 


Transporting/Riding in a car:  Has a look around what is happening but no pacing, no walking up and down and settles down nicely.  
Assessors Notes:


 write up for Roxy's rescue from today and yesterday, she is such a lovely girl.

Yesterday I walked Roxy for the first time and she was very happy for me to go in her kennel, she made little wimpering noises when she first came out then settled, she had a walk alongside a volunteer (who had walked her previously) and the volunteers dog, Roxy was more interested in wanting to see the volunteer than her dog and in no way did she show any aggression, Roxy did pull on the lead slightly at first but after walking parallel for around 5/10 minutes with the volunteer and her dog she began to settle down and did not take alot of notice.

You have to be quite quick getting out of the kennel when you put her back as Roxy wants to follow you and it is very sad leaving her as she is longing for company.

I walked Roxy for the second time today, again Roxy is more than happy for me to enter her kennel, just outside the kennel was another volunteer and her male partner which Roxy happily greeted although she had never met them before, she also passed another male with no problems.

In the field there was a tractor that was moving quite close to us and Roxy took no notice, she seemed more settled today, there were also two other dogs being walked in the field and Roxy was not interested in them, we went quite close (in safe distance) to the horses and chickens and once again Roxy showed no interest.

Roxy knows her name and when I call it she looks back at me or comes to heel for a stroke, she loved being talked to today and loves a scratch behind the ear and being stroked, she has no issues with this or with having her leads on.

She seems such a lovely girl even though I can see from looking at her she has been very neglected it has not affected her love for people and their company.
