*** Lexie is located in Georgia*** Lexie is a lovely eight year old longhair red girl whose tail never stops wagging. She came to DRNA obese weighing 17 pounds which resulted in her having back problems. She is now down to less than 13 pounds which is a good weight for her . She will always be unsteady on her back legs but has full control of her bladder & bowels & is totally housebroken. She has severe flea allergies, was allowed to get fleas that caused sores & hair loss. Her foster home has six Dachshunds & she does great with the other Doxies. Lexie will whine & cry when put into a new situation & she can’t see her human. This behavior comes from her past life because she did not get any care or attention. She has a very high prey drive & will need a secure fenced yard (no electric or invisible fences) to keep her safe. No pools or doggie doors. She loves to eat as all Doxies do but her adopter must understand that she cannot gain a lot of weight because that would be dangerous for her back. She is heartworm negative, current on all vaccines and spayed and is ready for a new forever home. She does need a small dog buddy or two in the home that don't engage in rough play. We are seeking a local adoption for Lexie in the Atlanta/Greenville Georgia area to facilitate a home visit and to make it easier for the adopter to meet/adopt Lexie and to avoid a long car ride.
