Roxy – Up for Adoption

Roxy is a very friendly and playful girl who loves her squeaky balls and a bit of rough play. She is incredibly loving and will muscle in for cuddles at every opportunity. 

Roxy is in foster with another dog and with young children who she is gentle around. She enjoys walking and is very good on the lead, and she enjoys interacting with dogs while she is out. She loves a bath and a pamper, generally she adores any interaction with adults, children and dogs.

Dogs Name: Roxy

Age: 4 years old

Can live with children: Yes

Can live with dogs: Yes

Can live with cats: Untested 

Current location: Midlands

Things to be Aware of:
Roxy has suffered with crystals in her urine in the past so she is on a specific dog food that she will need to continue with. We can advise you on this. 

She can’t go on long walks, but she does enjoy them so two 15-minute walks a day will be fine with a gentle increase

The Ideal Family:
Roxy just loves being around other friendly playful dogs so we feel her new home would be perfect if she had a playmate and people around during the day. She is a dog that really enjoys interaction and whilst we don’t have any concerns with her around children, it is felt she would be better placed with children 2 years and over, just because she will try and get in on cuddles. 

Other comments:
Roxy is a happy girl who just wants to please and be loved. She craves attention and sometimes needs reassurance with gentle words when she is being picked up i.e.to get in the car or bath. 

She is toilet trained but still has the odd accident overnight and is happy to be crated for a maximum of four hours during the day. She travels well so we will consider a new home up to 4 hours form her current location.

Roxy is spayed and vaccinated

If you have any questions, please ask Vicky Hill, Roxy’s foster mum

Roxy’s adoption fee is £350 and will need to be paid in full prior to her going home which will also be subject to a home check.

*** As of April 2019, Geordie Bullies Springboard introduced a small charge to apply to adopt a dog from our charity. *** IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID, YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY AGAIN FOR 12 MONTHS***
How will it work?
We will be charging £5.00 per year for membership to apply for a bulldog with the charity, this will also cover the cost of a home check if required. 
This fee will cover you for one year from the date you apply, you do not pay per application. 
For example, you apply for a dog and pay your £5.00 membership, you have a home check and are not successful for that dog, so you apply again for another dog a few months after, you will not pay another £5.00 assuming your situation is the same.
Please note, there is an exception to the above. If you pay your £5.00 and move within the year and require another home check before you have been successful, there will be a further £5.00 charge to cover volunteer expenses of carrying out a new home check.
Your responsibility as an applicant
When you are applying for a dog, you MUST make sure you meet the adoption criteria and you are 100% sure you are ready to open your heart and home to a rescue dog. Please pay attention to the requirements of the dog, in particular, consider the following. 
• How far the dog can travel in relation to where you live.
• The suitability of the dog should you wish to add to your pack later. Does the dog you are applying to adopt like other dogs? 
• Are there any restrictions with the age of children the dog can be rehomed with? If so, how does this match your family unit?
Prior to completing an application form, you will need to pay the £5.00 fee via PayPal. 
Please put the name of the dog and your name as reference. E.g. Joe Bloggs (your name) / Bella (dogs name). Please make a note of your payment reference number. PLEASE also ensure you select friends and family to avoid fees for the charity, the fees are an extra 30p if you wish to pay goods and services so £5.30 instead of £5.00
When completing the adoption application form, you will be prompted to enter your PayPal reference number and date of payment. If this is not entered, we will not process your application.
