The Cruelty Never Ends – Roxy

8/13/14 – Roxyw:NancyJ8:12:14 I know that most of us just don’t get it. As much as it is important for us to help our rescue friends so that they can help us with placement, we feel equally obligated to help those individual rescuers who see a a situation and take action. Here is the story of Roxy (I’ve left out the graphic photos). We couldn’t say no and we are only hoping that we have a successful fundraiser on Thursday, August 14 at the BlackFinn. I hope we’ve made a slight difference in her life: ~ diana

“Last Wednesday Roxy was in a backyard with her fursibling and the 2 dogs got in a fight. They made Roxy stay outside in the dirty yard chained to a fence until I found out about her and went to try and help her. I had a couple of antibiotics that I gave her and started networking her to get her some help. A nice woman stepped up and offered to keep her until Monday, but on Friday, Dr. Good from the Dearborn Family Pet Care did a home check and took her back to the clinic. She said that her legs were swelling up from laying in the dirt and they were getting infected and she had a fever. She wanted to be able to clean the wounds and get antibiotics in her asap. So Dr Good took her with her. I talked to the doctor yesterday and she said that Roxy had a few wounds on her head that were still bleeding some, so she still wanted to keep her a few more days. She said Roxy is a smart, loving, wonderful dog. Says if she didn’t have cats, that she would even keep her. She gave Roxy a heartworm test and we just found out this morning that she is positive. I am heartbroken for this sweet baby. Her pos owners couldn’t even take care of her the right way and give her heartworm meds. They were just going to drop her off in the parking lot of a grocery store or the parking lot of the Eastpointe Police Department and let her loose. How can people be such a———???? I am begging for help. I truly hate asking, but I don’t want to leave this sweetheart with heartworm or anything else they will affect her life. She deserves a chance to live. We are still networking her to find her a foster/forever home and hopefully will have some good news soon.” ~ Nancy

  1. Hi, I’m a friend of Lisa Brownfield and saw the original story about Roxy. I donated some money to her care and just wanted to know how she’s doing? thanks so much for your kindness to a needy animal.
    Regards,

    • Deanne, I’m sorry if I didn’t reply to your question. Roxy was with an individual rescuer who contacted 4 Paws 1 Heart for help. I’m still getting used to operating our website and thought comments were directed to my e-mail. I will try to follow up on her. Thanks, diana
