View Full Version : Introducing Roxy

3rd December 2008, 12:06 PM
On Monday we brought home Roxy,a lovely Ruby girl. She's almost 4 years old and has had a pretty rough time :( She was kept outdoors :eek: She is very nervous around people but is beginning to trust us. She has to be fed in her crate as she will growl and bark at Ollie if he comes within 5 feet of her when she has food. She isnt housetrained and so is under constant supervision, with no accidents (or attempts to toilet insides) so far.

Ollie wasnt too sure of her at first but is starting to warm to her. I'm sure they will be great friends in time as she is such a sweet little thing.

Here are some pics, they're not great, I'll post better ones when she has settled a bit more.

Oh she's a little doll! Good on you for giving her a better home. Can't believe they kept her outside.

Can't believe they kept her outside.

The sad thing is they saw nothing wrong with this!!

The poor thing was so dirty and smelly. She loved having a bath, suppose it was a novelty & she was warm. She's going to be groomed on Saturday, so she'll be a new doggie :p

Then the diet begins :eek:

How could they keep her outside?

It is beyond me how people think - I remember seeing one one of the 'Animal cops Houston' programs there was a family that kept a tiny elderley Chihuahua out the back & the poor thing was chained up & only had a vari kennel (no blankets or anything) to sleep in. Thankfully they signed the poor thing over right away & the Police woman who helps them a lot fostered her & they showed her with a little sweater on looking really happy!

She is lovely...love her fluffy "hair-piece":luv:

Why on earth do people get a cavalier (of all dogbreeds !)and keep it outside???So sad :mad:....Roxie is lucky and I´m sure she´ll pay you back with unconditional love in the future:)

Thanks everyone for your lovely comments :)

She is really starting to settle in now, although she still spents most of the time in her crate. She wont even come out to play with Ollie, but I suppose this is all new to her. Her crate is in the kitchen so she is still in the middle of it all even if she is just watching.

She was much brighter this morning when I came downstairs, she was jumping up and wagging her tail, so I'm really happy with her progress.
I even got my first kiss from her this morning :jump:
