PLEASE NOTE THAT WE WILL ONLY RESPOND TO THOSE APPLICANTS WHO MATCH ALL OF OUR FIRM REQUIREMENTS (see below). THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!

LEXI IS BOTH INDEPENDENT AND SHY

Lexi is 6 lbs. and 6 months old. Seized with the 13 dogs from a backyard breeder Lexi has not been socialized with humans. She is curious, and likes to explore and especially loves to roughhouse with her mates. Lexi comes for treats but still won’t let us pick her up easily or handle her for too long. It’s all on her terms and slowly but surely she will come round as her curiosity overrides her fears.

Lexi will need a family experienced with small timid dogs and 100% needs to be adopted with one of her mates or to a home with one or more energetic, small breed dogs. Harbouring many of the characteristics of a puppy mill dog, Lexi could be a flight risk and needs an experienced (with fearful dogs) and patient family who will allow her the time it will take to become more confident. A real puppy, she is a chewer and will need a supply of healthy chew toys, where she comes from everything was fair game—wood, plants, paper, garbage…

Lexi is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.

FIRM REQUIREMENTS: Experience with timid dogs. No condos or apartments, children 14+, a securely fenced yard, swimming pools only if fenced separately, someone home a good part of the day. Trixie must be adopted together with another small dog or more in the home. A cat OK if used to dogs.
