4/26/15: It seems Roxy has approximately three Facebook photo/threads but this one seems to be the most current and she seems to be still alive although very much CODE RED! She has about $250 in pledges. Please act very quickly if you can save her.

Hello Rescues,
Our dear, sweet Roxy was vetted a few days ago.  She is now spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on shots, but heartworm positive! 
 We are not giving up on her! Any rescue willing to pull her or any other heartworm positive dog will receive a free two-week supply of doxycycline to make up for the added cost of heartworm treatment.
Even if you cannot pull her, please share her far and wide.  She has so much love to give.  See her video at the Helping Animals at Gwinnett County Animal Shelter Facebook page!
Interested rescues please reply to this email at  (

I have worked with Roxie many times!
girl is not only super beautiful, but has the greatest personality to match. I have brought her outside to a bonding pen 3
times & it's so hard to put her back!
She has been at the shelter since the middle of February, but has the calmest temperament. Even though she is a larger dog, she has never pulled on the leash.
She gets super excited to be around anyone. She loves to be right next to you and just enjoys being out in the sun.
She would even sit on my lap & just enjoy being pet.
She sits for treats & takes them gently from your hand as well. I can't even picture a dog with a better personality.
I have had one family come in the pen to interact with her while I was outside. The kids were under 10 &
she was tremendous with them. She didn't jump & just remained calm.
She would be the perfect dog for a family looking for a dog that is calm & SUPER loving/sweet!
I really don't understand why she has been so overlooked!"
