Lexi is a sporty gal at heart whose maturity puts her at a solid medium pace. She loves to go on walks, run through the shallow water, play with toys and pretend like she can still catch a squirrel. But she will do all of these for a perfectly reasonable amount of time before she's pooped and ready for a nap. Two or three fifteen minute walks a day wear her out nicely.

Lexi is house-trained and polite in the home. She knows sit, lay down, paw and catch. She won't get on the furniture, except when she's left home alone, and the only spot she wants is the one on the couch that you occupy. She's just keeping it warm for you until you return. And if you leave a bone for her while you're gone, she always waits until you're back and sitting by her side before she'll chew on it. When you get home from work, she likes to celebrate your return by bringing you ALL of her toys. Squeaky toys are her favorite, probably because they are what she imagines a squirrel would be like if she could catch one. And at bedtime, she surrounds herself with all of her toys before falling asleep.

Lexi is grateful to be in a cozy bed on the floor of your bedroom at night and loves that you understand her need to be outside as soon as the sun rises, so she can wake up the squirrels. She will give you gentle kisses on your hands in the morning to let you know it's time to go. Lexi can be shy with new people, but once she trusts you, there's nothing she loves more than being scratched behind the years.

Loving, low key and low maintenance, Lexi will be so happy just to be a part of your life. Come meet this sweet girl!
