UPDATE ON LEXI, THE BULLET DOG
(And thank you Channels 6 & 7 for your consistent coverage...)
I met Lexi today --- Day #2 in Vet care. She is doing great. Happy, friendly and wiggly. She is being anesthetized DAILY so her bandages and cast can be changed and is responding quite well overall. She appears to be housebroken - but because she is living in a kennel it's hard to regulate her potty breaks. When she does have an accident, she is remorseful. She is a leaner.. and wants to give lots of kisses. Very people friendly.
We are learning that because she was likely a "YARD DOG", she barks and growls at other dogs when she meets them -- as a defense/protective mechanism. Because of her health issues and where she is living it is difficult to asses her further or to begin to alter that behavior. .
She will be spayed in the next couple days -
That said - for NOW, we are seeking a foster or adoptive home where Lexi can be the only dog. Once she gets acclimated in a home environment, we will have a better opportunity to re-educate her on how to behave. She is a PUPPY - and can easily be retrained. To FOSTER/ADOPT: email for an application: email@example.com -- to DONATE: look on the upper right side of this page for the secure PayPal link, or go to our DONATE page to see other ways to donate.
And thanks for your support and concern.
