We acquired Roxy at nine months after she had been rescued from an extremely abusive situation. She is 19 months old now and is adjusting to life. Her injuries were all about the face, jaw misaligned and her tongue is partially paralyzed. She is a sweetheart and very smart. For all she went through, she has been very forgiving of humankind. She loves her Bernese Mountain dog sister, Stella, whom she torments on a daily basis. She has learned a few commands already and has become a very special part of our family.
