“When I got the phone call, I told them it wasn’t possible. When she explained to me, she couldn’t even speak, I was very surprised. She was totally incredulous. In fact, I told him it wasn’t possible because my dog was next to me on the couch, then I realized he was talking about Roxy!
Roxy spent that night under the care of Skylor’s Animal Rescue, she received food and a check-up to assess her health, during the evaluation Dawn discovered that Roxy has a breast tumor.
For now, the adorable Shih Tzu is staying with her mother’s friends while they can safely introduce her to her family’s six-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Magdalena excited to have her lover Roxy back, she said:
«She looks good, but she is very thin. For now, we simply don’t know how severe the tumor is. It was such an emotional reunion, I felt that she recognized me when she saw me ».
