A Gift for your donation
If you donate $25 or more, you get a 2.75" x 3.5" ornament of Roxie (with hanging ribbon), painted on 140lb archival watercolor paper by illustrator and artist Lisa Nelson. She will write your preferred message on the back.
At checkout, we offer to either hang it on The Phinney's Angels Tree until the end of January 2021, or mail it now to you or anyone you would like. The ornaments hung on the tree are laminated. Visit the Phinney's Angels Tree at The Pierce Park at 17 Weston Rd, Lincoln, MA.
The shelter was pretty sure they’d see Roxie again and again. She is such a beauty, but so hyper, it would take a very special person to love a very special dog. But Roxie stole Brendan’s heart even before they met. He knew he loved her just by hearing about her on the phone.
Named after the character made famous in Broadway’s Chicago, Roxie danced her way into a Boston apartment complex ready to bark at every elevator sound or the passing person on the hallway. But Brendan was so determined, he trained his flamboyant best friend until she became the playful, perfect pup he imagined her to be.
Now, the pair visits every neighbors’ doors with a smile and a wag, and Roxie greets both people and pets with friendly wiggles. And, at the end of the day, Roxie is always there for Brendan when he needs her to cuddle, nuzzle, love, and calm.
Roxie, who is probably 8, has received help from Phinney’s since she was adopted by Brendan, who had other Boston Terriers on the program before. What’s most beautiful to see about their relationship is that Brendan never doubted this would work out, no matter how energetic and therefore challenging Roxie was. And because of this absolute trust and faith, today their mutual dedication is one of a kind.
Help Roxie continue to be happy and safe with Brendan
