Gary lost his job of 7 years when the economy went bad, and has not been able to find another permanent job yet. Gary received an eviction notice 2/10/11, and all the cats and 2 dogs at his house were surrendered to us to find new homes.
Posted 4/5/11, and pictures taken 3/6/11. Lex is very sweet, but can be skittish of new people. He use to be afraid to come near me, but in a short time has become very loveable with me. Lex and his sibling were puppies at a Wal-Mart parking lot when Gary and Penny took them. The owners couldn't find a home for them, and were just going to leave them in the parking lot.
D.O.B.: ? 2003 or 2004
Weight: about 50 pounds
$80.00 adoption fee will pay for his neuter and vaccinations. We cannot do his neuter at this time due to him having heartworms. He was never given heartworm prevention until he came here. He is too hyper to give the heartworm treatment to, so we are keeping him on prevention for awhile in hopes he can be neutered later on. If he were to be sedated for surgery, it could kill him.
