MEET LEXI-- (Check out her video)
Yes - this is the dog who was SHOT in the leg and left for dead in Hollywood, FL. A Good Sam saw her and brought her to the hospital and Grateful Paws was asked to step up and try to help raise funds for her vet bill--AND-- find her a new forever home.
SHE IS DOING GREAT! She is in a foster home with a couple other bully breeds and is happy, sweet and trying very hard to be better socialized. But she does like to play rough!
She is now about a year old, still a puppy, playful and very people friendly. A basic obedience class with a trainer would be helpful... We believe she had been a 'yard dog', so she is learning how to greet new dogs. Her leg has totally healed and she doesn't even walk with a limp! They saved her leg without surgery - with daily sedation and frequent bandage and cast changes.
And we are looking for an ADOPTIVE home for her. Her ideal home would be where she could be the only dog - and with an physically active family who can tire her out.
Because of her life as a yard-dog prior to coming into our care, she had not been socialized with other dogs as she should have been, so she is re-active when meeting other dogs. We are working on it that behavior - but for now, an only dog home would be best.
If interested in adopting/fostering, please email for an application: firstname.lastname@example.org
An adoption fee of $150 will apply.
NOTE: Adoption fees are applied towards the vet bill: Exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip. There is rarely anything left over, but if that happens, the monies get applied to the next or previous pet - who may have had to have an x-ray, be groomed or have a dental.
