Lexi came to GRRMF when her previous family could no longer care for her. She was a little out of sorts during her first couple of days but has settled in and is now enjoying exploring her new foster home.

Lexi loves to be outside! She likes to chase all the birds out of the yard to show them who’s boss. She enjoys playing fetch but sometimes prefers to hang on to the ball. Lexi is also an aspiring soccer star! She likes to play soccer by pushing the ball around with her nose and batting it with her paws. She’ll even manage to play with the ball while carrying a second toy around in her mouth.

Her foster mom filled up her pink pool with water and lo and behold – this girl loves the water!  Lexi couldn’t get enough pool time with her floating toys and was thrilled to be given the change to cool off and have her own private swimming session.

This gorgeous girl enjoys napping outside but also loves to lie down at your feet when she’s indoors. She’ll gladly settle in on the floor under your desk or table to be near you. She’s independent and is happy to play and entertain herself, but likes to be close to you too. She loves to have her ears and belly rubbed!

Lexi is one smart cookie and already knows several commands. She has learned “sit”, “stay”, “come”, “no”, and “down”. Her foster mom is teaching her how to walk on a leash and respond to the “heel” command, and is also working to teach her how to greet new friends without jumping. Lexi is not just housebroken — she’s also trained to ring a bell hanging on the door when she needs to go outside!

This sweet girl has the softest fur! You won’t be able to resist giving her tons of belly rubs and lots of love!
