Lexi was a Feared little 4month old German Shepherd mix who I adopted, She was scared of everything The first year she (her & I )spent working on all her fears after that she was the most loving sweetest dog ever. my husband always said she was the most well behaved & easiest dog to walk out her & our other two. She even gave blood to the Canadian Animal Blood Bank in our home city Calgary Alberta. I miss her every day she passed away at 81/2 years old of bloat.( Not what happened to me, However My message to all spend as much time with them as you can, even when you are tired from work & don't feel like it take them for that walk cause if you do not you could come home energized the next night & they may be sick & not be able to take them. Love Them & Send lots of time with them cause you never know if it will be your last.
