Lexi is a beautiful, spayed 10 year old female Dalmatian who is very sweet and sociable! CCDAL was contacted two weeks before Christmas by a local rescue in West Virginia to see if we could help her because she was tied outside with another dog after her family did not want her anymore. It was getting very cold at night and everyone was concerned about her. When she arrived in rescue, it was apparent that she was thin (see first picture). She was taken to the vet immediately where we found out she had a very bad urinary tract infection, an intestinal parasite (whipworms) which was making her anemic, and she tested positive for Lyme Disease. After two weeks of antibiotics, her urinary tract infection is gone and she feels so much better. She is finishing her second round of deworming and has another two weeks of antibiotics for the Lyme Disease, then she will be fully healthy. She is also working on gaining 5-6 pounds and muscle mass as well (see second picture).

Lexi fit right in with her foster family and made herself right at home! She is being fostered in a family that has an 11 year old son and 5 other dogs (Mira and Axel who are on CCDAL's home page, Tank and Sadie who are on CCDAL's adopted dogs page, and a Collie Mix named Fawn). Lexi enjoys being with everyone. She is a "leaner" who loves to snuggle and will soak up all the pats and love you can give. She enjoys a soft bed or sofa to lie on, and will put her head in your lap. She walks well on a leash and went on a very long family walk right before Christmas and loved it. She is not destructive and is house trained.

Even though she is older, she does not act it! She plays with all the toys and tennis balls and runs around with the other dogs. Lexi thoroughly enjoyed the holidays when her foster family had a house full of company and two additional dogs - she went from person to person for affection and attention and received many presents including a new bed.

Lexi is spayed, up to date on all her shots, heartworm negative and on preventative, on flea and tick preventative, and her blood panel did not reveal any problems. If you are interested in adopting her, please fill out an application. If you would like to donate towards her care, please follow the instructions on the donation page of the CCDAL website.
