OLD DOG SCHEME:
The Dog Aid Society’s Old Dog Scheme covers dogs re-homed at 8 years old or above. This means that the Society will cover costs for veterinary care for the dog for the remainder of their life within reason. We do not cover costs for routine treatments such as vaccinations, worming and flea treatment. If the dog requires special dietary food we will contribute 50% of the cost.
This will alleviate the worry of the financial implications taking an older dog into your home. Older dogs make great pets! Why not consider an older dog?
Roxie is a lovely older girl looking for an active, loving new home through no fault of her own.
Roxie loves to be made a fuss of, and really enjoys being brushed or having her chin scratched. Roxie is a very loyal Collie and will stay by your side. She can be quite timid and nervous so Roxie would benefit from her new owners having Border Collie experience. But once she gets to know a person or a dog, she has a great attentive nature. She loves going on long walks and is good on and off the lead, although she may pull. Roxie would love a secure garden to play ball with as she is very good at fetching.and loves the attention. Roxie has never lived with children so we recommend that she could live with teenagers.
Roxie is fully house trained and is able to be left in the house for some time, if necessary. She is not destructive. Roxie can bark at unfamiliar sounds, but this is usually only one bark. She is very scared of thunder and fireworks and will hide under furniture when she hears them. Roxie is okay at the vets, if a bit wary. When other dogs approach her, she can be timid and will back away from them. Roxie is also okay travelling in a car and can jump into the back by herself.
Roxie would love a new home that would take her on good walks and give her company during the day. She will need her new owner to have Border Collie experience and someone who will be patient with her timid behaviour, in the knowledge that she has so much love and loyalty to give.
