    In the meantime, Roxy really needs to get out of there. I am not going to elaborate but she is going to just get messed up if she keeps living like this. The sooner the better.

    We have a possible home... if we can get her to SC. I don't think the owner is real happy about how far it is.

    That's "funny." When we're out hiking with the dogs, it's always Gidget that the kids want to pet first before Grimm (maybe because when Grimm sits down, he towers over them.)

    It's too bad Gidget is finicky about female dogs. They'd be a matched set.

    I'm thinking about bringing her to my house today and getting her clean, she smells like crap and my hands turn black from touching her... And just giving her some free time. If I do I will try to get some better pics.

    Nothing new to update. The owners found someone who was another complete idiot.. She made an appointment to come see Roxy and never did, then wouldn't answer or return calls..

    Well, I'm pretty sad to say Roxy will be spending her Christmas in a cage.. I'd hoped she would have a family by now.

    I so wish Gidget wasn't so finicky about other females :( I was hoping Roxy would have a home for Christmas.

    Roxy's weird with all other dogs right now anyway, especially females.. She's turning on and her family does not know how to handle it. Five months in a crate is not doing her any favors in the behavior department. She is also so under-exercised that she over does it when she DOES get good exercise (like with me) and starts limping on her repaired leg.. It's just a mess, the whole situation is.

    how is she with other females, and where is she now?

    Other females are a no-go completely. She's even started reacting to the male she's always lived with.. so I say NO other dogs, unless you are ready to break up a fight (after a very careful intro) or can keep them separated completely.

    Right now she is in Hampton, Virginia. She's lived outside, on a chainspot, and inside (though she needs to be reminded of house training).

    aw, geez, what a shame. i have 2 females and three males now- my males don't care about any other dogs, but one of my females can get a little snotty- housebreaking isn't a problem, but i'd rather not break up fights except occassionally.
    i suppose my foster/adopt days are over, all that's worked for us in the last few years is young pups that the adults can train.

    besides, Dally thinks every pup is HER pup.

    Roxy takes no bull from other dogs. If the male she gets hot with wasn't a wimp and stood up to her it would be on. The only thing she likes about other females is getting to bite them. She is a lovebug but she just needs to be managed with other dogs...

    This is so sad. Keeping my fingers crossed that she finds a good home! Also poisoned it is very very very nice of you what you have been doing for this dog!

    This still breaks my heart..she's just so cute, I didn't even get a chance to pet her in person. I wish she'd tolerate/play with males. She needs out, or I hate to say it but her being PTS would be better than being with them. What a waste of a wonderful dog.

    With supervision she does well with their male, but they think it's funny when she mounts him and growls, she's not corrected for it until she starts to get very serious, then they freak out and yell then put her in the crate... She's only started up with the males in the home since she's been living out of the crate. The pent up frustration and energy can certainly be contributing to it.. but she is a bulldog and I trust her to act like one.

    I was upset that they did not at least let YOU hang out with her before/after the fiasco of an intro, or leave her in the car and meet you first... Btw, would that car in your avatar be the one that was 'too small' for you to possibly have two dogs in? LOL if it is.. sheesh the way they described it I expected you to have a BMW Z3 or something..

    LOL Nooo, I was driving my Taurus at the time, the SUV is my avatar is the new beastie lol. but even still, a Ford Taurus is a 5 passenger car LOL I feel so terrible for her. What a hellhole.

    Well I am going to do my best to get her to my place for a while tomorrow, get her clean and happy.. At least when she goes back to hers in the evening they will have company and she can have some kind of mental stimulation, even if it's through the cage.
