When Sharra contacted Karma Rescue about Roxy, the volunteers warned her about Roxy's fear issues. Instead of being intimidated, Sharra felt more determined. "There are issues I wouldn't feel comfortable taking on, but fear wasn't one of them," Sharra tells The Dodo. "I just knew, in my heart, that we could help her."
Sharra and Glenn set up an initial meeting between Roxy and Kasey in a public park. At this point, Roxy was able to walk on a leash, but she was still pretty skittish. Despite Roxy's fears of the outdoors, the meeting between her and Kasey was successful. Not only did the dogs like each other, but Roxy submitted to Kasey's alpha authority. The Platts went on to coordinate a play date between Kasey and Roxy at their home in Malibu, and introduced Roxy to their cats.
