This sweet girl came to us when her previous owners could no longer afford to take care of her. She had a benign tumor which was removed. Lexi has been recovering in foster care, but is ready to find her forever home!
Lexi might be 12 years old, but don't let that scare you! She is in foster with 6 other dogs and can hang with the most playful of the pack! She loves stuffies and will entertain herself throwing them into the air, catching them and shake, shake, shaking them! When it's time to settle down, forget about all of that playfulness. Lexi will sneak into your lap and take over your spot on the couch before you know what is happening.
Lexi is currently being fostered in a home with a young child (7) who she absolutely adores. She is also house trained and great with other dogs of all shapes, sizes, and energy levels.
This dynamite of a dog has received a clean bill of health and is ready to go home. Could that be with you?
This dog is approved for our fospice program. This means that the adoption fee is waived and all medical costs the shelter can provide will be provided at no cost to the adopter for the remainder of this pet's life, including heartworm and flea preventative, vaccinations, mandatory spay/neuter surgery, heartworm test, and microchip.
This dog is currently in a foster home and not at the shelter. For more information, contact jpasfosterEB@gmail.com.
