Foster Update 6/20/2019:
I am a 3rd year veterinary student at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine and I have been fostering Lexi for the past month. She has been such a joy to have around, and seeing her face light up when I come home after a long day is easily the best part of my day. Lexi just recently finished receiving radiation for a soft tissue sarcoma on her leg, and she has an excellent prognosis! She is not on any medications currently, other than an anti-anxiety medication she takes during thunderstorms, as she is not a fan of them. Lexi is very much a people pleaser and absolutely loves cuddles, belly rubs, and long walks around town. She has the golden personality, with a smile to match and she loves meeting new people. Her favorite game to play is tug of war. She is 100% potty trained and does well in her kennel during the day. Because she doesn’t like other dogs taking attention away from her, she would do best as being the only dog in the house.  She is fine to meet dogs and walk with them and hang outside.   Miss Lexi has been through a lot this past year, and she has remained strong throughout her battles. She really deserves a happy ending.”

Medical Update 3/26/2019
Lexi is currently at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State University for her radiation treatment.  She will begin them today.  She has already become a favorite of the vet students as they report that she is a total love.  She will be there until her treatments are completed which could be 3 weeks.   We will keep this page updated and her special 4th year student will send pictures and we will share on this page.

Medical Update 2/19/2019
Lexi’s lump was a low grade cancer.  Doctor was able to remove the mass; however, because of the location preferred margins were not possible. Lexi is only 3 years old, and with her cancer involving her front leg, our doctors have recommended radiation, which will give her a 95% chance of no recurrence. Without the radiation treatments, her odds of reoccurance are not as good. Our only option for these treatments is at the vet school at Mississippi State University.  We will begin those once she has healed from the surgery.

Medical Update 1/24/2019
Lexi had a lump removed from her leg this week and is doing just great.  She will have a 2 week recovery and then she will be ready to go.

Intake Report 1/11/2019:
This beautiful girl was a stray in a rural Tennessee County. Someone found her and turned her in to the local animal shelter on January 4.  After waiting the allotted time, with no one coming to claim her, we were contacted.  Our intake team member and her 2 year old son went to meet her. She’s a sweet happy go lucky dog, who seems to love everyone. She gets along great with dogs as long as they don’t rush her, loves kids, and seems to be glad to be where ever she is.  She has a true golden personality, even though her coat is of another color.  It’s thick and gorgeous but matted with cockle burs and dirty.  She always has a smile on her face and her teeth are in decent shape.  She’s going to be a gem of a dog for some lucky family.
