This is an amazing story about Roxy who went from near death to 9 months of rehab to finding a new forever home for Christmas! Roxy was abandoned in a home when her family up and left her. They were being evicted and chose to leave her behind, the landlord did not want Roxy and did nothing to help her, the neighbors would feed Roxy through a hole in the fence. One of the rescues we work with in Texas "Rescue Lane" pulled Roxy from the horror she was living, Roxy was skin and bones. After months of nourshiment Roxy found a new home however after 3 months Roxy's behavior changed in a bad way. Rescue Lane had to take her back but was in need of an immediate foster with experience with behavior and medical conditions in dogs and that's where we come in. We got Roxy transported from Texas up to one of our experienced Board members in West Virginia. Once we got Roxy we found out she was double dosed with flea, tick and heartworm prevention which filled Roxy full of toxins causing the behavioral turn. We also leanred she was heartworm positive. Our Board member Tim worked with Roxy for 9 months detoxing her and working with her behavior around people and other dogs and cats. He took her to her vet appointments, through the process Roxy improved and her behavior changed and her health improved she became a healthy happy dog and was cleared by the vet and ready for her new forever home. Roxy was transported back to Texas to Rescue Lane where they found her a new forever home and family, Roxy was adopted at Christmas 2019. Sometimes it takes time and team work to save a life but every second is worth it! We are so happy and proud of Roxy! Thank you Tim for all you did for Roxy!
