Roxie spent seven years in a crate, before finding her forever home.
Roxie spent seven years inside a crate and was used for breeding before she came to our Avondale shelter. Older dogs often have a harder time finding homes; especially black, older dogs. But as luck would have it, a wonderful family—the Allgoods— walked through the shelter doors, chose this special girl and gave her an amazing home to live out her days in. Her adopted mother Jennifer said, “It was such a privilege to watch her go from the scared girl... to the confident girl she became who loved her life. When she first came home, she always walked with her head down. Seven years later, she had her head held high!”
Roxie recently passed on, and the Allgoods sent a generous donation in her memory to help other dogs. Their story is a powerful reminder of how rewarding it can be to adopt an older dog and to give them all the love, safety and comfort they so deserve.
LifeLine’s mission is to save every healthy and treatable animal and give them the best chance of finding a new home. Help us find homes for dogs like Roxie by donating much needed cages and kennels to transport them to rescues and new homes or make a donation for their care.
