Roxy, a Rottweiler mix, is barely one year old and already she has learned that bad things can happen to good dogs. She and her canine sidekick Ruby lost both their family and their home in early January when their owners were evicted. The dogs were left on the empty property for several days. Finally they were taken to the Montgomery County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on January 9th. Roxy and Ruby had always been outside dogs, but that did not protect them from the hardship of being kenneled in a facility that only had an outside area for impounded dogs. Furthermore, there was no way for the bonded pair to be kenneled together. Within a day the girls were shutting down from exposure, stress and depression.
