Help Get Roxy Better

27555644_1518192865.3985_funddescriptionOur sweet eight year old Doberman, Roxy, was attacked by one of our foster dogs. Gentle and older, Roxy couldn’t defend herself against the attack. She had to be rushed to the vet for emergency surgery to save her life. She lost an ear, has a fractured a leg, over 50 bite wounds, a torn tendon, over 70 surgical staples, drains to fight infections, a feeding tube until she can muster up the strength to eat again. She will be needing multiple surgeries. Our next battle is the infections in hopes she doesn’t also lose her leg as well.
My family continually tries to help dogs in need of homes, and this one took a turn for the worst. They are in need of that help in return to save their own four-legged family member, Roxy. Anything helps to saving our senior pup in the house.
