The adjective most people use when talking about this gentle girl is “sweet.”  She goes up to most new people calmly, with her tail wagging, and once she has been given a pat or two, she doesn’t push for more attention.  Her foster Mom tells us, “She likes to sit real close to me and have me pat her when I’m sitting at the corner of the sofa watching TV.  Eventually, she’ll go on her dog bed for the night.”

Lexus has a collection of tennis balls, and they are kept in a basket in the living room until she picks them out, one at a time, and lies down with them all around her.  She has other tennis balls that are supposed to stay outside, but Lexus will try to take one into the house with her when play time is over.  She knows the command, “drop it,” though, and will do so just before going through the door.  Once inside, she runs to pick up one of her inside tennis balls and is quite proud of herself.

After 7 years with her family, Lexus lost her home due to a divorce and foreclosure.  She had to stay in the almost-empty house by herself while her owner was contacting acquaintances and shelters to find somewhere for this girl to go.  It was fortunate that GSRNE had a foster home available so Lexus would no longer be alone.  She was very happy to be going for daily walks and having play sessions in the fenced yard; mostly she was happy to be with her foster Mom, who is able to be home most of the time.

Lexus is fine when meeting another dog, but she doesn’t want to interact much.  She has gotten along well with two friendly Labs who visited her foster home.  When one of the dogs picked up a toy, Lexus would watch for the toy to be dropped and then pick it up; but there was no aggression.

A quiet home, with someone there for company, would be ideal for Lexus.  She doesn’t mind staying in a gated area when necessary, but she’d rather not be alone for a full work day.  She likes to stroll, rather than power walk, and 15-30 minutes would be enough to satisfy her.  She loves going for rides in the car and is looking for someone who will enjoy her company as much as she will enjoy theirs.
