Roxy is a 10 year old female Lakeland Terrier Cross Patterdale. Roxy came into our care due to a change in her owners cirumstances. When she arrived with us she was unfortunately struggling with some skin issues causing a loss of fur. In spite of this, Roxy has shown to be a very friendly, affectionate girl who is full of life, especially for her age! She’s a typical terrier – loves a good game of fetch and gathering all the tennis balls.
During her time with us, Roxy has not shown any behaviour problems with the kennel staff, however she is reactive towards dogs and her previous owner did advise us she is quite fiesty around them so needs to be kept at a distance when out and about.
Roxy has seen our vet who believes her skin issues are long term allergies which have not been treated – her skin is currently being managed by a combination of steroids and medicated baths. We are hoping to reduce these medications over time as her skin improves and find a treatment which she can continue with long term.
Her future family will need to be committed to monitoring her skin for any changes as well as regular vet appointments to make sure she is comfortable. Roxy has recently had surgery to remove a lump on her abdomen, we are currently awaiting the results from some tests to find out what this lump was.
Roxy is looking for a quiet home with people who are around most of the time as she loves company. She cannot live with other dogs and does not like cats. Roxy may be ok with visiting children as she has been around children aged 8+, however this would be dependant on introductions here at the rescue.
