Lexie showed up at a house in a rural area about three-weeks-ago. She was starving, emaciated, and had large sores on her back. The people there fed her and kept her for a while, but are not able to give her a permanent home. Lexie has obviously been through a rough time in the past. She still has a fearful look and will lie down when approached with a leash. She does walk along on a leash well and jumped right into the car of her foster family. Her back has healed, leaving large scars. Her legs have scars from being tangled in a chain. She is still thin, but is gaining weight steadily. She has been treated for intestinal parasites. Lexie is about two-years-old. She needs a loving home where she can learn that people are kind and not cruel. Do you have that special home for Lexie? Please contact the shelter by e-mail only, since Lexie is in a foster home and not at the shelter.
