Baxie Memorial

We have some incredibly sad news to share about one of our alumni pups. Sweet Baxie has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge leaving a huge hole in the hearts of her family members.


Her family sent us this notice of her passing:


“It is with a heavy heart that I write to let you know that Baxie went to heaven.


She was one tough little cookie, but in the end, she was ready to go be with her sister Baby J. We can’t thank you and everyone at State enough for all you did for her. We adopted her in 2017 at 8 years old from FBV. She lived to 13.64 years old and had a great life but fought hard for it. She overcame Cushings, cancer, a brain tumor (with radiation) and enumerable UTIs, skin/dermatology and other issues. In the end, her age and the brain tumor caught up with her. We are extremely grateful to have had the honor and privilege of her being part of our family. That was only possible as a result of the great work FBV and all of its volunteers do.


We look forward to being of service to FBV in any way we can. Baxie’s story is a testament to the fact that all that you do is a service that is greatly needed. Please keep up the good work y’all!”


Baxie obviously was very special. Her family loved her so much and gave her an amazing life. We are grateful to them for giving her such a wonderful life. RIP sweet Baxie! You are now running free.
