This week’s urgent appeal is for Roxy. This lovely griffon cross has been at the SPA for way too long, since April 2016, in fact. The reason for his arrival at the refuge are the same as for many dogs the world over. Roxy was given as a gift to an elderly couple by their well-meaning children. As Roxy turned out to be far bigger than expected, the couple were unable to walk him, and he was dumped at the SPA when he was almost three years old.
Yes, Roxy is strong on the lead. However an education harness is all that is needed to stop this from being a problem. And apart from his dislike of cats, it is hard to find fault with this lovely griffon cross.
Roxy has good basic training, he is fine with other dogs, both male and female, and he is hugely loyal and affectionate. He looks black, but has brown highlights in his moustache, and is famous for his range of facial expressions.
We love griffons. We love their hairiness, we love their loyalty, we love their gentleness. Roxy deserves a home where someone can appreciate all he has to offer.
Roxy was born in January 2013, and has been at the SPA for just short of two years. He is castrated, microchipped and fully vaccinated. He would be happy to travel to a new home, and we can organise this for you, using a licensed transporter and following obligatory European rules.
Please get in touch if you would like to offer a home to Roxy.
