Lexi is a beautiful nine- month old, female, spayed GSD.  She came into the program from a shelter with her sister Lady.  Lexi was taken into the shelter with a broken leg that had regrown out of place.  GSRNE brought her to Tufts for an evaluation and then surgery to repair her leg.

She is being fostered in a home with two adults and two other female dogs.  The foster home worked with Lexi tirelessly during her healing process.

She is a very happy girl with lots of energy.  When she first arrived in the foster home, she wasn’t allowed to play much because she was recovering from orthopedic surgery on her front leg and it took about eight weeks to heal.  She had to learn some games like playing with puzzles since she had limited mobility.

She loves toys and her tennis ball is the most favorite toy.  She likes to carry her ball in her mouth most of the time even when she is going to the bathroom.  She will also play with her stuffed animals too.  She also likes to get into the car and go for rides.  She loves to run and frolic now that her leg has healed and the vet’s said she can be a puppy/dog; go on walks and run in the yard.

She is crate trained and potty trained.  She still needs some work on her leash walking, but is making good progress.

She definitely wants to please the foster parents and is very focused on them.

If you are committed to going to dog training and can handle a large, very active pup, this is the dog for you!
