Roxie is a sweet little Jack Russell Terrier being cared for by Russell Rescue, Inc. volunteer Tracy V. Roxie was rescued from a high kill shelter in Louisiana in April of 2014. Shortly after entering her foster home in the Houston, Texas area, it was discovered that she had heart worms and also Transitional Cell Carcinoma of the bladder. The cancer was inoperable. Little Roxie was given 2 months to live. That was 17 months ago! This little fighter beat the heart worms and the medications the veterinarians gave her for the bladder cancer helped shrink her tumor. She would continue to live out her days with her foster mom. Roxie has a new challenge to face. Around the 1st of October 2015, it was discovered that Roxie has a spot on her chest that didn’t look quite right. After a biopsy, it was confirmed that she has a mast cell tumor on her chest that needs to be removed. It can spread throughout her body if it is not removed. Surgery will remove the tumor and give Roxie a chance to continue living the life that she loves in her wonderful home. Roxie has earned her nick name Spud, The Wonder Dog! She is a fighter and will beat cancer again! If you can find it in your heart to donate to Roxie’s care, it would be greatly appreciated. The funds will be used to pay for her surgery and treatment. All donations are tax deductible to the donor. Thank you!
