This happy and bubbly young lady is Lexi, a 3 1/2 year old pretty pittie that is dreaming of a fabulous home of her own. Lexi came to us in September of 2015 when she was found tied to a pole, abandoned outside of a school with another dog. Lexi had a severe condition with her eyes that needed immediate care so she underwent surgery to correct entropion immediately. Although Lexi is feeling great these days and is healthy and happy, she lost some of her vision due to her eyes not being treated sooner. She gets around perfectly fine though and nothing stops this perky pup from enjoying herself! Lexi and the dog that she was found with did not see eye to eye on some things so they do not need to be adopted together, but she does get along well with most dogs but will need a home with no cats. She loves people of all ages and has no shyness about her at all. She wiggles her whole body when she meets you and is happy to go out for a walk with you or play a game of fetch. Lexi is very well behaved and is polite and lady like. She would love a home with a nice yard to romp and roam in and a family to goof around with and love her. Lexi has been waiting for a long time for her special someone to come along and would love you forever if you welcomed her into your life. File#25407 9/2/15
