- Roxie is Losing her Home and Needs a Temporary Foster
Looking for a foster, or possibly a new home.

Someone is losing their home any day now.  They had 3 dogs, and 2 of the dogs can live with the married daughter.  
Roxie is in the attached picture, and she has no where to go.  She looks like a yellow Lab, but has some Rottie in her 
She has not been spayed, even though her family qualifies for the free vetting from DeKalb Co, they are in such a scramble, that they have not been able to get it done.  
Roxie actually belongs to the adult son, who adopted her with his girlfriend a few years ago.  You know the story; young couple breaks up, go their separate ways, leaving the dog homeless.  Roxie has been living with his parents, who have to be out of their own home in just days.  They are putting all of their things in storage, and will rent a basement apartment or something that is not conductive to a 75 pound dog. 

Roxie does not like little dogs, making this even more complicated. 

The family will take her to a shelter, if they cannot re-home her.  

I'm pushing the family to at least do the paperwork for the free vetting lifeline offers to DeKalb Co residents.  

Can anyone help transport Roxie?  Can anyone help Roxie in any way?  Can she go on a transport?
