It is very much a day of mixed emotions. When we got Roxie a month ago we were happy to have gotten Jac a friend but, as the weeks went by, it became obvious that the people we got her from had lied to us.
A big clue was them blocking my wife on the Pets4Homes website the day after we picked her up. They were supposed to be sending us the medical and vaccination records but obviously couldn't be bothered or there was something they didn't want us to know. In any event, it meant having to get all of her vaccinations done again as we had no information on what she'd already had.
Roxie was described as being brilliant with other dogs but, as time went on, it became apparent that this wasn't the case. She would be very jealous if Jac was getting any attention and constantly barge him out of the way or go for him.
So, we have had to say goodbye and have given her to another family to love.
When she was getting all the attention, Roxie could be a lovely dog but it seems she needs to be in a single dog household where she is the focus. It just wasn't fair on her or Jac to try to force the issue.
We didn't take anything for her, recouping the money we spent wasn't a priority. We just wanted her to be in a home where she could thrive. Hopefully that can now happen.
