I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
My name is Lexi and I am a 2 year old pure bred Golden Retriever. My family could not longer care for me so they called AGK for help. When I went to the doctor, they said I had a heart murmur and I needed to see a special doctor. So off I went to UT Vet Hospital so they could figure out what is wrong with me. Turns out I have a level 3 sub aortic stenosis. They gave me medicine to help with my disease and they said I can still run and play. I was REALLY relieved to hear that! I do get tired a little easier than most girls my age, but it does not stop me from romping and stomping with the best of them. I love people, dogs and cats - well cats scare me a little but I just leave them alone. (Good cat strategy I am told). So I am waiting for a special home where I can live a golden life. The doctor said that my heart was in good condition for my disease and with medication I could live at least a couple more years, hopefully longer! I do like to prove people wrong sometimes!
