Lexi is a playful, energetic young girl who wound up at a downstate animal control after she kept escaping out the broken screen door, and the owners signed her over after her last pick up. Since Lexi can’t fix a screen door herself, giving her up was the only reasonable option. She was recently adopted and returned for being more work than expected, so Lexi needs someone who is prepared for the antics of a young working breed who has had no structure or training before. She is a loving girl, but she has some anxiety and insecurity from being moved around. She craves consistency and guidance, so she would benefit from immediate positive training. She might also be a candidate for inexpensive anti-anxiety medication, but we need to discuss that with our vet. Lexi doesn’t appear to have any experience on a leash, so she will require a fence (not an e-fence) to provide her with potty and exercise space until she can go on leash walks. She has very little confidence, so she could benefit from another dog to show her the ropes. At only a year old, Lexi has tons of potential to be a wonderful companion, but it will take a little work to get her there. Lexi ignored the loose resident cat when tested, and she seems okay around other dogs, but we always stress SLOW introductions. We have no history of her with kids, but she seems nice enough to be placed with kids 10 and up who know how to act properly with big dogs.
