From the Foster: Hi - my name is Lexi. I'm a sweet little girl - who loves to be pet and give kisses. I get along well with other dogs - my best friend at my foster home is a little chihuahua - we love to run, wrestle and nap together. My foster home has cats but I ignore them. I am potty trained on a schedule - I'm not great at giving signals. I DO NOT like cold weather and will sit outside pretending I don't have to go but I really do . . . my foster mom puts a coat on me to help keep me warm.
I came from a hording situation so lots of things are new to me. I cannot walk on a leash - if you put one on me I tip over to my back. At my foster house I have a fenced in area where I can go potty and run around - it would be good if my new home had something similar. I also don't do well in a kennel - but I do fantastic in a gated area. I don't bark much - I usually join in when my foster siblings are letting mom know someone is at the door - otherwise, I'm quiet. I'm on the shy side and it takes me a little bit to warm up to new people - but once I do, I will keep bugging you to pet me!
I'm not sure how I react to little kids - I haven't met any. My foster mom thinks I will be fine though. I LOVE blankets and cushy beds - and I hoard toys (but I share)! I'm not too comfortable laying on furniture - it feels weird to me (at my foster home being on the furniture is okay).
My foster mom says I would not be good as an only dog. It would be nice to have another dog to show me the ropes, who's not overly dominant and would like to play with me. I need a family that will be patient with me as I continue to discover who I really am. My foster mom says I'm a wonderful girl and will make someone or family very happy. I have lots of love I need to share!
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
