Shelter Dog Sunday - Lexie
Every Sunday we run a special feature on a rescue dog looking for a loving home. This week, the spotlight is on Lexie - an ex-racing Greyhound with a lot to offer to a new family.
Battersea and Cats Home is the well-known backdrop of ITV's Paul O'Grady - For The Love Of but what you see on the show is only a fraction of the work that the shelter do. Battersea takes on over 9000 cats and a year, including Lexie, an ex-racing Greyhound looking for his forever family.
Age: 2 Years 1 Months
Lovely Lexie is very unique, with her beautiful black coat and little white spots all over!
She is an ex-racing Greyhound which is very clear when she catches sight of something moving! She will need owners who understand what ex-racers are like and are prepared to help her adjust to her new life in a home.
Lexie has a scatty, fun personality waiting to emerge but does find new environments overwhelming. Her new family will need to give her some time to settle and gain confidence.
If you think you can offer Lexie a home please call Battersea Dogs & Cats Home on 0843 509 4444 or contact them by email at [email protected] for more information.
