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 is a beautiful soul. She is looking for a foster carer or sponsor. Can you help?

We need a compassionate person to give Roxy the care and cuddles she needs for the remainder of her life.

Roxy Fabricio is 6.5 kgs and 16 years old.  She has been surrendered as her person could no longer care for her, and had not been able to properly for some time.  We are working through her list of health conditions including terrible ears and a grade 4 dental, most of her teeth needing to be removed.

She has had her first grooming session as it’s been a long, long time since she had been done.  She was matted to the skin on her underbelly, in her armpits and inside all four of her legs.  That alone would have made movement uncomfortable or hurt whenever she moved.

She had a large sore on her head checked by the vet and under all her hair were similar sores all over her body, most likely infected hair follicles or similar.   Fortunately she has already been put on antibiotics for her ears and teeth.

With her fringe not over her eyes she will see a little better although her advanced cataracts mean she has low vision.

Her nails are terrible, very talon like, and too difficult to do on the day but still such an improvement and she must be so much more comfortable.

Roxy is a sweetheart of a dog and very resilient, loves her cuddles. Roxy showed signs of serious cognitive decline when she first arrived but already she has improved immeasurably. She has not had much interaction for some time.  We are confident a good diet, pain killers, 4cyte and antibiotics will help her still further.

Are you the angel Roxy has been waiting for?

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.
