A Staff member writes :
Lexi was surrendered because her family is moving and cannot take her with them. She previously lived with three children and it was reported that she got along with them well. In her previous home, Lexi was playful and sweet, nervous around strangers, but warmed up after a quick introduction period. Since being in the shelter, Lexi has been nervous and fearful. She needs a patient home, with an experienced family who will help Lexi become comfortable.

Behavior: New Hope Only
Lexi previously lived with 2 adults, and 3 children. She was reported to get along with children and the owner stated Lexi needs a slow approach from strangers. The owner also mentioned that Lexi is housebroken and paper trained. During SAFER Lexi was extremely fearful and would not approach the assessor, so a slow approach was attempted, which resulted in a strong discomfort for Lexi, and she barked and bared teeth at the assessor while attempting to exit the room. Due to this response and safety concerns no handling items were attempted and only resources and dog-do were tested at this time. She was not interested in any of the resource items or approaching the helper dog, and repeatedly attempted to exit the room. Placement with a New Hope partner is recommended so that the behaviors seen during SAFER can be more fully explored as well as a behavior modification work before adoption into a permanent home.
Food: Inconclusive, dog is not eating.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Rawhide: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog, and attempts to exit.
