This delightful beauty with the dazzling smile is Lexi! She's a 3 year old Pit Bull Terrier who's spayed, current on her vaccinations, microchipped and house trained & crate trained. She's not a fan of the crate, she'd rather be with her people, so we'll be sending an escape proof crate with her. She doesn't have proper dog manners, which could get her into trouble with other dogs, so she prefers dogs who are the same size as she is with a good temperament. She gets along great with kids but we'd prefer she go to a home with older kids unless she's constantly supervised as she doesn't realize how strong she is. She hasn't met any cats yet but is great at finding mice & chasing them away! Lexi was overweight and had heartworms when we rescued her from Animal Control, just days before she was to be euthanized. She's lost weight, went through heartworm treatment and is thriving in her Foster Home!
If you're looking for a dog who is incredibly sweet & affectionate, Lexi is your girl! She's a big cuddle bug who gives the biggest, sweetest kisses and has no problem jumping in laps to be close to someone, even though she's a little bigger than most laps! This beautiful lady is one of those dogs who is happy being around her people! She loves hanging out with her Foster Mom, she spent the summer helping her tend the garden by sniffing all the vegetables to make sure they were there. She was rewarded with treats such as tomatoes & butternut squash afterwards, which she loves. This sweetie also bonded nicely with her Foster Parents' 6 year old daughter and they're always playing or snuggling together. When the little girl leaves, this silly girl whines at the door for her, missing her already. It's the sweetest thing! Lexi sleeps in her crate at night but would love to sleep in a bed with her people, or at least a dog bed near them. She enjoys attention, especially belly rubs & scratches and has no problem flipping on her back to give you her tummy! Once you see the big smile you get, you'll want to give her plenty of attention! She's a gorgeous girl, her smile is very contagious and she has the most kissable face! She's full of personality and makes some very funny faces which will have you laughing!
Lexi is a very playful girl whose favorite toys are balls and she loves playing fetch although she needs to work on returning them. She's a fun girl to be with and she has a blast playing with her Foster Family's daughter and their Labrador Retriever. We would love it if her Forever Home has a privacy fence or that her playtime is monitored as she really doesn't like being alone. When it's time to relax, Lexi likes to chew on bones, especially the yummy ones from the Farmers Market!
A quick learner, Lexi is smart and listens well. She knows basic commands such as Sit, Stay & Down and is pretty well-trained. She does need work on meeting other dogs, as she's unintentionally rude to them, which could start trouble. She loves going for walks and does well on the leash until she sees people, then she pulls because all she can think of is being petted! She enjoys car rides and going to public places, where she's pretty well-behaved!
Lexi can't wait to find a Forever Home where she can spend time cuddling with her people, playing with balls and getting many belly rubs! She'll bring a lot of happiness with her, many kisses and you'll get a lot of those gorgeous smiles, which will brighten your day!
