Likes:
Roxie loved to curl up and be loved. She really asked for nothing more. She did enjoy rides in the car!

Pet-Peeves:
She was such a wonderful girl... there wasn't anything that seemed to bother her.

Favorite Toy:
Roxie didn't really "get" toys. She was offered plenty of them... just never took to playing.

Favorite Food:
Roxie loved any treats she could get!

Arrival Story:
I fell in love with Roxie on petfinder.com the end of December 2003. We finally brought her home with us January 3, 2004. Roxie was heartworm positive when we rescued her. She had been physically abused, and at one point her body had been almost entirely covered in ticks. It remains a source of amazement to me to this day that an animal who had lived such a horrible life was able to love so fully and without expectation.

Bio:
Roxie passed away January 20, 2004, due to complications from her heartworm treatment. We did everything we could to save her and fought for her as long as she continued to fight. Around noon that day, she perked up and wagged her tail while in her kennel at our vet's office (she was under constant vet supervision due to the severity of her complications). They took her outside into the sunshine, brought her back inside, and she curled up in her special blanket that went with her back and forth from the vet's to Animal ER each night. She went to sleep peacefully and woke up at the Rainbow Bridge, where I KNOW she is waiting for us to join her one day. We believe that Roxie was already very sick and that her time here was short to begin with. She simply needed to be loved in this world before moving on to the next. Roxie sent us Sophie, who we adopted about a month after we lost Roxie, to kiss away our tears and save another wonderful dog from a life of abuse and neglect.
