First she was neglected and then Roxy was no longer wanted

Spread the love

At the Carson Shelter in California, Roxy is not doing well. The 10-year-old German shepherd appears to be overweight, and her nails are so long she now has difficulty walking.


A volunteer at the shelter writes:

“… She is not doing well and feeling so long and confused after her family decided they no longer wanted her… She has no idea why they did this to her, but she looks neglected, her nails are extremely long and it’s affecting her walk…”

Check out Roxy’s video:
