This cute boxer-mix puppy is Lexie, who is about 5 months old.
It’s a little hard to believe that she’s that young, because she acts so grown-up for her age. She’s a little tall, too.
You can see a hint of the puppy goofiness here.
Lexie is very food motivated and one of the most attentive dogs I’ve met. When we walked, she would look back and sit immediately if we made any eye contact. There were times when I had to really reassure her that it was fine for her to walk on.
The fact that she is so food motivated makes her very endearing, because she really wants to please you.
It will also make her training fun, because she enjoys the treats and likes to figure out what it is that you want her to do. Her eyebrows furrow a bit, too.
I didn’t get to play with Lexie, but she loves to play with her toys.
I’m sure Lexie is still attentive when she plays with her toys, though I suspect she is also more relaxed.
Doesn’t Lexie look so proud here?
Lexie also gets along with other dogs and would be a very fun second canine companion.
All I can say is whoever adopts Lexie will be very lucky- she’ll be so much fun and easy to train.
If you are interested in her, please come visit Lexie in Kennel 17. For more information on Lexie, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
