In March 2012 I was living with my boyfriend and a dog we had rescued 9 months before that. I had been bugging my boyfriend to let me get a dog of my own because everyday he would take our dog to work with him leaving me all alone at home all day. He kept saying no so I finally stopped asking. On my way home from work one day I found this sweet looking way too skinny dog walking in the fields. I parked my car and started calling for her. She weighed nothing so I scooped her up and put her in my car with ease. On my drive home I started freaking out because I knew my boyfriend would not let me keep her but I knew if she stayed with us for a little while he would fall in love with her as well. When we got home I told him that I was going to give her to my parents, their dog had passed away. I took her to the vet the next day to make sure she didn't have a chip and that nobody was looking for her. My luck nobody was!! She had been abused though she has a scar on her side and a big one on her neck where she had been burned so bad that hair won't grow back in those spots. She is part boxer and part American bulldog so she should have weighed more then 50 pounds but she only weighed 42 pounds. She had heart worms, tape worms, and had recently had puppies. I knew in my heart I would always be her mom so I wrote a check and had her heart worm taken care of. A few days before my parents came to town my boyfriend said fine you can keep her, but no more animals! Almost year and a half later she is 75 pounds and is so healthy! She is and will always be a part of my family! Roxie fits into my household so well and adjusted so well!
