I'm looking for a new home...

About Roxy

Lab Cross
2 to 5 Years


Roxy is sweet and friendly girl but there's a really insecure little soul among that boisterous exterior. She has had a few homes in the past, and is really looking for a home with people who will help to give her back some routine. She loves to play and adores some tasty titbits, and this is a great way of helping her build up some confidence. She loves to take her toys to her bed and sit gazing at them adoringly!

Type of home needed

Roxy doesn't seem to have experienced much in life and she does get a little worried in new situations. She does enjoy the company of other dogs when she's on her lead, but when off she can be worried by fast movements. She'll be better as the only dog in the home for now, so that she can find her feet again. Like all dogs, Roxy should be left alone when eating - she eats very quickly and can snatch treats so watch those fingers! Her ideal home would be a rural or quiet environment with children aged 14 and up.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Roxy, who is based at Merseyside. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you will receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
