A note from Roxy''s foster mom:
Roxy is doing much better. She still hates the crate, but she has calmed down when she sees the cat through the baby gate- she no longer has to be crated at night. She gets to run around the dog room. She is comfortable with our older dog, Sophia, we haven''t introduced her to anyone else yet; because it appears that she did not have good interactions with pups in the past and is a little scared of new dogs. We continue to make her a little more comfortable each day. She loves water and we are constantly filling the water bowl in her crate and the dog room one. She adores my six year old son and constantly wants attention or at the very least wants to be in the same room as her humans. She is a relaxed girl that would be good in a quieter household that has time to dote on her.
She doesn''t care much for Lucky (our other foster dog) biting her face in play but tolerates him. I would not recommend she live in a house with cats (at least not yet). She loves rawhides and going for walks on a leash. She has gotten better with distractions on a leash, we have a lot of wild rabbits and she now stops and looks but we can walk past them without too much effort. She is potty trained and hasn''t had any accidents in the house or in her crate. We don''t believe she is crate trained because she barks so much in it and tries to fight us going in. It''s getting easier and we''re making progress, but she''s not there yet. She doesn''t appear to be a huge chewer, and doesn''t really play with toys much, just loves head scratches and petting. She also travels well in the car. She will be getting her first bath from us tomorrow-we will let you know how it goes.
