Roxy was adopted as a small puppy by a family that didn't have time for her. She was tied up in the back yard and left to entertain herself. Poor nutrition led to a terrible case of demodex mange. Poor baby Roxy lost all of her hair.
She came to AARF Houston just in time. She was given a nutrious diet, lots of love and proper medication for her condition. Roxy is now a young lady with a full coat of beautiful Brown and white hair.
Roxy loves all of her foster brothers and sisters and plays well with even our 6 week old foster. She loves to run, loves her walks and especially her car rides. She tolerates being in a crate when necessary, but would prefer being by your side doing what ever important task you are doing.
Roxy can be an only dog, although she would prefer having a friend to keep her company while you are at work.
Roxy has a genetic problem with her back legs. She has just undergone Bi-lateral FHO surgery, which means her hip bones never fit in the Pelvis joint. She is recovering from sugery and getting stronger every day.
As soon as she is strong and her muscles strong enough to hold her, Roxy will undergo another surgery to fix her knees. She is a great dog, and is doing well with Physical Therapy. There is no reason to doubt that once she has the next surgery she won't be as good as any other dog. She deserves a great home - is it with you?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this dog. You can apply online by clicking on Application . Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events. Thank you for considering a rescue!
The adoption fee includes vet check, vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a $10.99 fee to Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. There is a $50 deposit on all puppies that have not been fixed yet. Once you provide us with proof of spay/neuter and rabies, you will receive your deposit back or we can send you a receipt to deduct from your taxes as a donation. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others. If you would like more info about this dog, send an email or call the Contact Person.
AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation, no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
