These photographic portraits of Roxy are being offered to benefit the children of fallen U.S. Marine’s with the proceeds going to educational foundations supporting our Military Families.
The inspiration for this series of photographs is derived from a picture of 1Lt Joshua L. Booth, U.S.M.C. (K.I.A. 10.17.06, Al Anbar, Iraq), taken at the Korean War Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The German Shepherd Dog in this portrait is 1Lt Booth’s family dog named Roxy, from Hawaii, where Josh and his family were based at Kanehoe Bay Marine Corps Base. After Joshua’s passing, rather than leaving Roxy behind, the family brought her home to the mainland where she continues to be a beloved family member. K9 Roxy is now an operational Search and Rescue (SAR) canine and part of a K9 SAR team in Virginia. She serves as a living affirmation of Josh’s life, and like Josh, she lives and works to serve others.
