"I didn't care about the bike; I just cared about Roxie," Stalter said. She then went to their local vet clinic and alerted the staff, who told Stalter to post Roxie on the Straydar Facebook page where lost dogs in the area are posted. After leaving the vet, Stalter jumped on Facebook from her car in the parking lot to post Roxie's photo. As she continued to search Facebook, she saw someone had posted MCACC's intake photo of Roxie: Somehow her elderly dog had ended up at the local pound.
Later, Stalter found out that Roxie had wandered down the street and onto a neighbor's front lawn. The neighbor, an animal lover herself, was just about to run some errands when she saw Roxie.
"She pees and stands there and looks at me, so I walked up to her," the woman, who asked not to be named, told The Dodo. She noticed the dog was gentle, loving and old. "At that moment I had a choice of what to do."
Since the dog had no collar, the woman, who was running out to do errands, brought Roxie to MCACC east, as she had been told to take found dogs there. "She was with me in my truck maybe 20 minutes, having the time of her life back there." The woman took video so she could post to Petfinder and similar sites. "I was concerned as she had a thing on her neck. She did not seem in distress to me at all."
