Meet Miss Lexi!! 

I don't think I'm a barn animal!!

Lexi's looking for something she never had...

Aaaah Yes!!  That's it!! Inside and on a comfy bed!!

Will you fulfill my dreams??  I hope so!!

Lexi is a sweet 11 year-old girl who was surrendered to rescue after having lived her entire life outside. For a while she lived out on a farm where she slept in a barn with the ducks and geese. There must have been other dogs around as clearly she’s had several litters of puppies. When he moved to the city he continued to keep her outside but she was placed on a chain attached to her collar. She was so thin her collar kept slipping off causing the neighbors to complain which ultimately is why she was given to rescue. When she got to her foster home, she had diarrhea from every type of worm a dog could get and she was infested with fleas. She was heartworm negative which is a blessing for this thin little girl. Lexi is terrified of stairs and perplexed by the foster mom’s hardwood floors. She’s met the resident male Doberman and has let him know with a soft growl that she doesn’t want to be bothered. He is respecting her space but remains close by as though trying to win her over. She’s a little unsteady on her feet but right now it’s a hard to know if it’s from fear or arthritis. X-rays didn’t show any major issues.
