Age: 4 years
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
This is the heartbreaking plea (and picture) we received from a South Carolina shelter back in August: "Sweet Roxy was an owner surrender after she was bred over and over again. She is about 5 years old and a small Staffy mix. She has never known a day of love or appreciation. Lets change that!! She is quiet and precious and kind. Very dog friendly and is small at about 30 Lbs. PLEASE help me get her off the euthanasia log." As soon as we saw her picture and heard her story, HART committed to take this girl (and her 2 adorable mix breed pups Roy and Robby) and the shelter people rejoiced as Roxy was their "favorite dog" (out of many dozens!) It is hard to pick favorites when all shelters are full of wonderful and precious dogs and cats (and other animals too!) but we understand why of all the dogs there, Roxy was a shelter favorite. She loves people and dogs and, just as the shelter said: "Roxy is Precious and Kind!"
