Roxy had been through more than any dog ever should. She had a TVT (small cancerous growth) and it looked so bad that her owners called Sidewalk Specials to euthanize her.
When rescuers picked her up, she was bleeding very badly and looked awful.
But they knew they couldn’t put her to sleep because they had faith that Roxy could still live a happy life, especially when they saw her wag her tail.
That tail wag proved to rescuers that she still had a whole lot of fight left in her!
Luckily, her TVT was curable, so they decided to start chemotherapy sessions.
Roxy was very depressed, which is understandable since her family just dumped her there.
She was left confused and lonely, but little did she know, things were about to get so much better.
As Roxy was going through treatments and healing, she lived with a foster. Her spirits got a little brighter each day.
Now, months later, Roxy has finished her chemo and has been cleared of cancer!
But that’s not even the best part. Roxy was also adopted into a loving forever home!
Now she gets to run around and play with her new doggy siblings and experience what it’s like to truly be a dog and be loved the way she should.
Roxy now has a second chance at life because Sidewalk Specials refused to give up on her.
Her story is a testament to the fight that some dogs have within.
Roxy may be small, but she has a huge heart and a great will to live! She has proven that– and now she is happier than ever!

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.
These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.
When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business.

They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.
This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.
