A volunteer writes:
Roxy is a lovely, pretty and girly oreo gal with vibrant amber eyes. Her ebony and white dress shines in the sun. She looks so elegant, royal, posing obediently for the pictures. Roxy does not smile but i understand. She had a home just yesterday, played with a young child, another dog, had a master she loved.. She comes with such amazing comments and you might wonder why Roxy was left with us ? Roxy has a large mass growing on her left shoulder and her former owner could not “deal” with it… It is understandable..Maybe another master can attend to it or give Roxy palliative care. She is quite a lively gal, so eager to come out of her kennel, do her business outside and explore the area with a new friend. She sometimes is a little anxious in her den. Talk to her, pet her, give her a treat and she will wag her tail and be all yours. Roxy walks beautifully on the leash. She has only minimal interest in birds and squirrels. She meets peacefully other dogs, big and small, boys and girls. She sits obediently on command and for treats. She loves to be petted and kissed. Roxy has been quite well cared for. Great weight, great coat and mostly sunny personality… Will you consider Roxy for the position of beloved pet? Her mass does not guarantee a very long life but who knows until a veterinarian says so…and even in that case, a shorter life span filled with love might mean an eternity and unforgettable memories. Roxy is waiting for you, her angel, at the Manhattan Care Center.
