Let’s just forget the past and only do good things every day.
We found Roxx completely neglected, tired and tied up to a telephone cable in the garden. She was so confused that she was mutilating her own tail. Her owners just stood there and just looked at her. There was no love nor compassion, just something “lying in the way”.
One volunteer that used to drive by wasn’t seeing her anymore and went to investigate. She found her in the back of the garden. Her owners basically did not want her anymore. Don’t, think: just take her and go away.
The vet found out that Roxx was suffering from ticks disease and anemia. She was malnourished, dehydrated and couldn’t walk anymore. Apart from that she had many puppies before, of which the last born dead puppies were just thrown away like garbage. We took her to her foster with the proper medication for a new start.
Roxx got increasingly better with enough rest, love, attention and medicine. There was of course fear for the new environment at first. People touching you, a tv nearby and food 3 times a day. Things she never experienced before. But her curiousness helped her overcome the fear and after 2 weeks she would show much more of herself and allow to be loved.
As a foster one can experience such a beautiful process. Eyes that change literally from hollow spaces to glowing eyes. Ear that are straight up again. The first wiggle. Going outside for the first time, to the sea, have fun! And the first visit to a behavior course to learn basic commands.
A fantastic journey to find a place where she can actually feel alive and receive love and attention. For Roxx life has turned around 180 degrees and this is the only thing we wish for more of her kind. Please register as a foster and experience this wonderful and appreciative process so we can write more success stories such as Roxx’s!
Rescue Paws can certainly use your help to make this possible for other dogs as well. Will you help us to help them? Your donation can make a difference.
