04/05/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Walking Lex is a must when I am at the care center. I miss him when I am not there….He is a measly chap that is taking a big place in my heart…Lex is a quiet little pooch, waiting very still right in the middle of his blanket, in his kennel, all eyes on the scene around him and on me when I arrive….His den is always clean. He is so house trained. Lex is so ready for his walk and company. He is tiny, dark as night and a bit on the thin side, a contrast with the 3 adult housemates he came in with, all victims of a big fire. Lex was wheezing upon arrival, coughing and could barely open his gentle brown eyes. He let me wipe the secretions blinding his vision. His face was all strained, one of his paws was up…What a good patient he was. Lex is quite obedient, well mannered, sits on command and a bit on the shy, submissive side. He indulges in hugs and caresses and has so much to give back. He loves treats but does not snatch them from my hand. He is curious of other dogs, pulls toward them but not in an unfriendly way. He never misses a chance to nuzzle the puppies (may be his…) housed in the kennel next to his. Lex is very dear, sweet and affectionate. He is at the Manhattan Care Center, recovering from smoke inhalation and hoping to be soon…home where he belongs… Another volunteer writes: Little tiny miny Lex was left behind with mama Shay as their owner who lost her home in a big fire, took back only her much older dogs…Lex is very different from his pack…He is very small to start with and seems to have endured a harder life. Very old scars can be seen on his face only, he is quite thin and hungry, seems house trained, and he goes toward other dogs but crouches to the ground when one is a bit too forward with him. He cowers when I throw a ball. And he is such a good boy, so friendly, welcoming and highly affectionate. What is Lex’s story? Take a guess..or not but mostly, think of giving him a home where he will be safe, cared for and loved. At the end of the road should be a castle..yours.
