**update 11/11/16 Roxie is recovering well from her tail amputation but does still seem to have some nerve issues and will need additional Vet care which will include medications and possibly some accupuncture if needed. We are still accepting applications for her adoption, but to be considered at this point, potential adopters must be prepared for whatever Vet care will be necessary to help her recover, as well as have experience with a dog with these type conditions.
**update 10/26/16 Roxie seems to have had a set back in her tail healing and now has an infection which requires emergency surgery to remove the remainder to her tail...updates to come...
Roxie is a 6 year old, 15# Pug who came to us from a breeding farm. She is super sweet with people but not the best with other dogs. She could potentially live with a small, submissive male dog...otherwise, just people would be best. She had some trauma to her tail and now only has a nubbin. Currently on a grain free diet, her itchy skin is slowly getting better and her coat is starting to come back in. She will need a patient home willing to work with her on training and keep her on a grain free diet.
