She ate 7 corncobs and was sick as a dog - but pup recovered

Posted 12:07 p.m. Thursday

— A dog who rooted through the trash from a family dinner and ate seven corncobs is recovering after a charity raised money for surgery.

The dog is Roxy, a purebred boxer who lives in Virginia Beach.

The Virginian-Pilot newspaper (http://bit.ly/2cokEnF ) reports that Roxy threw-up six of the corncobs. An X-ray revealed the seventh after the dog's owner took her to an animal hospital.

The owner was upset and says she almost had Roxy euthanized because she couldn't afford the $5,000 surgery bill. A national pet charity, Frankie's Friends, agreed to help and within less than 24 hours raised the money.
