Poor Lexie. She came to us very thin and with severe heartworms. Her eyes were the saddest that we had ever seen. Her treatment was risky and even gave her a seizure, but she survived. We all fell in love with her and she was the official "office dog" for a while. It was going to take a very special family to adopt her and we thought that we had found it. Unfortunately, we were wrong and the family kept her a short time and gave her away (even though this is against our policy). She escaped from her new owner and was found roaming the highway in Alabama limping and with bloody paws. The new owner opted not to even claim her. We have her back now, but she is depressed and would do better in a foster home (she prefers to be inside and is terrified of thunder storms - and the refuge is next to the reservation, where bombs are always going off). She has been through so much. If you can help Lexie, please call Laurie at 850-685-0288. Her link is:
