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.

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.

Its five months since Roxy arrived in foster, she still remains a very affectionate little lady who loves being with you whether its outside in all weather or curled up on the sofa. Her lead walking is getting much better and she loves saying hello to other dogs and strangers especially those who happen to have treats in their pocket. She loves to be with you when you collect the eggs and is mesmerized by our chickens.
Roxy is still walked on a lead as it restricts her ability to run around and play with other dogs which I have to say she would love to do, but any over exertion during the day does mean she has a limp in the evening, she is still on her daily meds.
Roxy is house-trained and also crate trained when I am unable to supervise her although her chewing is much less than months ago. Over the months we've had a few friends dogs and couple of foster dogs stay and Roxy has been very accepting of them all, even sharing her bed, all in all this little girl has a lot to give to the right person and could live with any size dog as she's done here. She still remains the biggest lap dog I've had the privilege to foster....

Roxy the Rottie is a very unlucky lady who sadly hurt her left knee whilst out walking, she was referred to Langford Vets Bristol for an examination, xrays and an overnight stay - her results showed she had ruptured her cruciate on her left side plus the right knee was also badly damaged.
On Friday the 13th (yes i know 13 is an unlucky number but we had no choice but to go ahead) she had both her cruciates repaired, she had a five days stay in Langford Vets and is now finally back in her foster home to recover..
Roxy's recovering period is six weeks of strict crate rest, toilet breaks on a lead plus the cone of shame. It's going to be a long haul for us all but we are determined to see her through this to give her a pain-free quality of life..
The cost of Roxy's treatment is now £5.500 - we have set up a GoFundMe page or can take donations through Paypal for anyone who would like to help her. Roxy is certainly worth it in our eyes.2pt

Roxy had her double cruiciate operation just over two weeks ago, and so far she is doing well plus she's being a very good patient, we still have four weeks of crate rest and lead trips into the garden to go. Roxy loves her meals and treats, she has also enjoyed some relaxing time in the garden when the sun's been out, her evenings though are spent curled up next to me on her blanket watching TV or snoozing, then its into her crate for the night.
Roxy is a very affectionate little lady so all this close contact with hubby and myself has been right up her street, she's itching to have a runaround and go and check out our chickens again at the bottom of the garden, her spirits are high and despite the life this girl has had to endure before coming into Many Tears Rescue she is such a sweet soul...
Roxy and I would like the THANK everyone for sharing and donating towards her operation we still have a way to go so please keep sharing her page....xx

18-04-20 UPDATE
We are coming up to the six week stage in Roxy's recovery, having spoken to Langford Vets in Bristol they have given us a plan for the next six weeks which includes reducing her meds, no need for the cone of shame anymore, plus whilst still on a lead we will be starting a 4 x a day exercise plan in the garden to strengthen her leg muscles. 
Roxy is still a very good patient who will love the extra time outside walking, she also enjoys being groomed and even tolerates having her nails trimmed.  My own dogs are playing a huge part in keeping her company...
The fundraising is still ongoing, anyone wanting to donate can do so either by "pay pal" or "gofundme" using the details above

18-05-20 UPDATE

Roxy received a lovely gift box full of treats and toys sent via two lovely ladies Jeanette and Liz THANK YOU ladies... as you can see from the video she enjoyed her gift especially the treats, although you would think she's not fed here, she shared her gifts with her friends then had to have a snooze after..
Its now ten weeks since Roxy's operation, the exercise program is going well and she has enjoyed being able to go outside the house, all we need now is to be able to meet up with people and dogs again to build her confidence back up to what it was before her operation..
Roxy's fundraising page is still a long way off its target, if anyone would like to donate please go to the link above or share her page on your social media page.

25-05-20 UPDATE

Roxy is finally available for adoption so form and orderly queue. She has been back to Langford Vets for an examination and Xrays which they are very pleased with, and are happy to sign her off. We will be slowly increasing her exercise, she is also allowed do stairs. Langfords expect her to live a normal life but did suggest she might benefit from some joint supplements in the future.
Roxy would love to live with another calm dog as she adores my three, she doesn't mind what size so long as its happy for her to share a bed. Roxy had also been on the beach after three months, it's a place she adores and also good for people watching. This girl deserves a 5 star home, with someone dedicated to giving her the life she should have had five years ago, she will repay you with her affection and loyalty..  
 

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.

ADOPTION DETAILS

Although ROXY is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £150 to help cover our costs. All 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. 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. 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.

* Many Tears uses Vanguard to vaccinate their dogs.  However, this can sometimes be difficult to source at local vets so if you are adopting a dog or puppy that has only had one vaccination please be aware your vets may require you to start the course from the beginning.

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