I do not understand people at all sometimes. What would make you take your family dog and just trade her in like she meant nothing?
Roxy is an 11-year old dog who had a home. For the past 10 years, she had lived with a family who adopted her from the Orange County Animal Shelter in Orlando, Florida when she was just a puppy.
