Roxi was found abandoned as a small pup in a family’s backyard. When no one claimed her from animal control, they decided to adopt her. As a puppy, she had a bad case of mange, and was nearly hairless. Her original rescuers needed to find a new home for Roxi because their young son became allergic to her. It seems her skin issues were contributing to his asthma. They were heartbroken to have to part with her, but relieved to have the opportunity for her come and stay with us at the Sanctuary. Roxi is very sweet, but still has puppy energy even though she is approaching two years old now. She is smart and knows her basic commands.
