Adopted: Roxy, a 4 month old Black Female Labrador, has found her forever home.
Here is a Bio from her foster family……..
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY BEFORE REQUESTING TO MEET CONNER, MISSY OR ROXY.
Roxy has been diagnosed with Canine Oral Papillomas.. It's common in puppies, whose immune systems aren't fully developed, and spread through saliva. Puppies like to lick!
While Roxy will naturally recover from the virus, it will take up to 8 weeks for her immune system to be completely free of it. There are no symptoms, and no medication to give, puppies simply grow out of it.
While not contagious to people, the virus is contagious to other dogs. We strongly suggest, if your home already has a dog(s), do not request to meet Roxy. She has to be kept from other dogs until the virus has run it's course, and as we don't know when she was introduced to it, it should be 8 weeks.
Please make sure you've read up on Canine Oral Papillomas and speak with your vet before submitting a Meet Request for Roxy.
"Roxy is simply a little bundle of love. While she can be timid at first, she wants to snuggle and cuddle with humans. She's happy to lay with you, in between puppy play time, and take naps. Roxy is learning to adjust to a kennel, and while not thrilled to go, she quickly settles down. Roxy is doing great on potty training, quick to learn, and is close to sleeping through the night. As Roxy is still a puppy, she's incredibly mouthy, curious and likes to run and play, and will need a strong leader to teach her through the puppy stages of life. Roxy is with her sister Missy, and loves to play. As we have to have them separated entirely, we cannot say how she is with other dogs at this point. Roxy will need a family experienced with young, energetic Labs and committed to providing her with structure, boundaries and training. Roxy will make a great companion, as she loves people."
