Arrival Story:
My husband wanted a dog in the worst way so off to the pound (after three years of talking about it) All the dogs were barking and the noise too much! I went outside to see the back of the cages and there was Roxie sleeping in the sun on her back - got to love that she is a sun worshipper! She came with a whole list of problems which included mange, a bad back leg, a nip in the ear from a cage mate yet in spite of all her physical ailments, she still had the capacity to love humans! (even after her first owner abused her, and tied her in a garage). When she finally escaped and went on the lam until she was starving and picked up by animal control said previous owner gave up the rights to a remarkable dog. She loved everybody and loved life. She was a regular at DOGMANS free USC classes and won the Sporty Shelter Dog of 2008. After her television appearance, Roxie finally got her own home with a spacious backyard for her to sun and roam after having to endure a 12 week closing living in a hotel. She was killed on valentines 2011. We left her in that ocked backyard for one hour and came home to find her in a pool of blood. We miss her terribly. She was the best friend anyone could ever have. We were so lucky to have her in our family

Bio:
Roxie was "home" for a five years and she blossomed into the most beautiful, sweet and affectionate dog. Her leg has almost completly recovered, she no longer fears belts , brooms or sticks, but we still have not been able to get her near a garage. She was "dog Pals' and had a tremendous empathy towards other strays and the animal cruelty we discovered in our new neighborhood. She loved to travel and criss-crossed the US a few times. She was an ambassador for her breed and a treasure to her family.Dewey the smelliest Old English bulldog/pittie mix who adored her, grieves for her loss as well.

Dear Doggies

My roxie is gone for two years now. I still miss her but Im so grateful for her training. She taught me to see and feed too skinny dogs behind gates. To sing to the ones that look terrified. She gave me Petey who she first saw with the section 8 thugs who moved across the street from the house we bought for her.

She would have been seven this month, would have her leg held out? Dewey her cohort in crime is on his last legs, living on pain pills.. Its hard to let him go but hes eleven so every day is massage for him Roxie. You taught me how to do it perfect for you, now the Doo Bear, the doggie you scalped, bossed around and loved is getting all your massages. You dont need them in heaven.

Yesterday Petey stared in my eyes and then took his foot like you used to and guided me to pet his chest. His was warm, yours was always freakishly cold, remember we teased you about it? Oh my little doggie, I see you everywhere and would do anything for one more moment. but thats not life. SoOOO were spreadin the love around baby girl... in your name.

teachin tennis in your name.
helping other doggies.... in your name.

your were the best friend I could have ever hoped for. Thanks for all the lessons in life.

Roxie left us almost two years ago. We recently found a treasure trove of video of our girl which made us cry and laugh all at the same time.

WE finally sold the house. Roxie saved two dogs from south central which are now adjusting quite nicely to life in Hollywood. Tiring? yes, its hard without the yard but they are safe. Petey the boxer she saved from a chain continues to unpack his suitcase of PTSD.

We think of her often and hope that all of you will say a prayer for those parents who are lucky enough to be able to hug their babies tonight.
