This is Roxy. Roxy is ready for a fresh start and a
new life. In the past, Roxy has had many litters.
She only knew abuse, loneliness and neglect.
She was rescued in September 2016. She was
mostly skin and bones at that time. Her teeth were
deteriorated from eating gritty food off the ground.
You can see Roxy's transformation below. You can
see that she has filled out and is now happy.
Roxy is a sweet
dog. We estimate that she is about 6 - 7 years old.
She is smart and friendly. Roxy likes other dogs but
would also do well as an only dog.

We would like to send a big thank you to Neighbors Newspaper and Diane
Simones for featuring our pets in their newspaper.
For many years, Diane has been providing RFSC with a place in their paper to spotlight our pets for adoption. Her caring and generosity has contributed to many happy adoptions.
Thank you Diane! We appreciate you very much.
