Lexi is the most loving and affectionate GSD our rescue has had the pleasure of taking in. She absolutely adores her people, or any people for that matter. Lexi has lived with infants and been exposed to children of all ages, though she occasionally needs a reminder to not jump up. Lexi is on the small side for her breed in height and weight and is working on gaining a little bit more weight but is doing great with 3-4 small meals per day. True to her breed, Lexi loves to work, she enjoys running, walking, training, and anything that will keep her mind working. Lexi has lived in homes with other dogs before, however we will require an only dog home for this sweet girl as she is very dominant and will snap if things don't go her way with another dog. Lexi is the perfect hiking, fishing and road trip buddy and would love an active person or family that is able to exercise her on leash and not at the dog park. Lexi walks wonderfully on leash with her training tool and is doing amazing at ignoring other distractions (cats, dogs, cars ) witminimal reminders.
Lexi is crate trained and will run in for meals but doesn't really care for her peanut butter kong or fancy treats. Kibble seems to be the way to this little girls heart. She is perfectly quiet in her crate as long as you don't slam the door too hard when you leave but settles quickly either way. Lexi has always lived outdoors prior to coming into care, so we do recommend she continue her crate training in her forever home to ensure her busy mind doesn't get her into trouble while your away! Lexi loves chasing after her ball and sneaks up on it the way you'd expect a cat to! Speaking of cats! Lexi has very high prey drive, so though she may act like one, living with one would not be safe. Lexi loves the water and hasn't yet showed any interest in swimming, will wade knee deep and lay down while foster mom and dad fish or catch some sun. If Lexi sounds like the adventure buddy you've been missing, please send us an application and let us know why your home would be the best fit!
