Meet Lexi! She is a four or five-year-old female yellow Labrador Retriever with an adorable face and sweet disposition to match! Lexi was surrendered to WCLRR when her family had a new baby and realized they couldn’t give her the time and attention she deserved.
Lexi loves people and dogs. Her foster describes her as “the easiest foster ever!” Lexi quickly settled in with her foster family, which includes two labs and two small dogs. She loves to play with the other dogs but will also entertain herself, running with a toy in her mouth and tossing it up to catch it!
Lexi enjoys all toys, but her new family should avoid giving her soft toys as she will remove the stuffing from them to get the squeaker out.
Lexi is crate trained and housetrained and has not had an accident in her foster home. Lexi sleeps quietly through the night on a dog bed in her foster’s bedroom. In the morning, Lexi patiently waits to go outside and get her breakfast with the other dogs.
Lexi knows “sit,” and she is learning “stay” and “down.” Unfortunately, Lexi does not have good leash manners. She is a large, strong dog, and her new family will need to work with her on walking nicely on a leash.
Lexi is well-behaved but sometimes jumps up on people when excited. This is another area where her new family can help her learn to be calm around people. Lexi hasn’t tried to counter surf, but she is a tall dog, and her new family should ensure that counters are clear of dangerous items such as medicines.
Lexi’s ideal home would be an individual, couple, or family. Lexi’s foster has left her alone for short periods, but Lexi would do well in a home where someone is around most of the time. She has lived with children and would be fine in a home with older children.
Lexi is a sweet, easy dog that needs some basic training. She would be fine as an only dog with people who will spend time with her playing and going on adventures. She does well with other dogs and would enjoy a home with one or more dogs for companionship.
Lexi is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
