Roxy is an adorable 4 year-old pitbull mix, who like many pitties, has not been dealt the best hand in life. Her last owner tied her to a tree and nearly starved her to death. Upon rescue, she weighed a mere 26lbs and her first few bowel movements were pure dirt. She currently weighs 38 pounds and we are estimating her healthy weight to be around 40 - 45 pounds. She is a short, stocky girl and she has a calm, sweet nature. Roxy is looking for someone who wants to make her a permanent family member. She has been failed by humans one too many times, and her next home simply must be the last.

She loves to be around her people whether it is laying at your feet while you’re cooking or snuggling on the couch. She is being fostered with two young children and three other female dogs.

Below are Roxy’s highlights and things to know.
