NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Roxy Fabricio was surrendered as her person could no longer care for her, and had not been able to properly for some time. Roxy has responded so well to love, lots of vetwork and meds for her arthritis, and is a joyful girl. She will greet you in the morning with a happy wiggle and a little run around the house. She’s a sweet old soul who seems happiest when around people. She waddles around the house keeping an eye on things and investigating everything. Roxy has formed a nice little bond with the jack russell terrier she shares her foster home with, even grooming him from time to time.
Roxy likes a pat and being near you but isn’t a lap dog and prefers to rest near you rather than be cuddled. Roxy isn’t at all keen on being groomed, most likely because she isn’t used to it. She can also be uneasy in unfamiliar environments. Patience and love will help Roxy feel safer. We have also disccovered Roxy struggles with the heat. With the warmer weather approaching her people will need to be mindful of this. Roxy is house trained and will let you know when she needs to go outside.
Her new home will see her with company for most of the day and potentially another dog for company.
Roxy is a sweetheart of a dog and very resilient. Roxy showed signs of serious cognitive decline when she first arrived but that has past. She had had no interaction for a long long time. Her advanced cataracts mean she has low vision. We are confident this plucky girl will keep bouncing back.
All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
