Lexie is a young mastiff/bulldog mix who is nearly 90lbs and can make grown men cry with her farts. One end is drool, the other is gas. The middle is usually wiggling with joy at the attention of any human. She is currently in eastern PA, and we adopt throughout the New England area. Lexie is with Red Hook Dog Rescue, a small NYC rescue that focuses on special-needs dogs.Lexie’s favorite thing to do is roll on her back for bellyrubs… and then toot her contentment. Because what you really need when you’re bending down close to rub her belly is a weapons-grade air biscuit launched into your face in thanks.
Lexie loves, loves all people — truly she has never met a stranger. She plays a little rough for small kids, so we’d rather see her in a home with 12 and up. She will chase small critters so cannot be in a home with cats or small dogs. How fast can a dog with three legs run, you might think? FAST ENOUGH. Oh, yes, about the three legs thing. Lexie is indeed a tripod. It does not bother her in the slightest. She is healthy, spayed, up to date on shots, is housetrained and has basic obedience training.
Lexie would like a big (65+) male dog as a buddy/playmate, though… so those of you with big naughty boxers that need more exercise so they’ll stop eating mattresses and sheetrock out of boredom, consider Lexie!
She also has a full training scholarship so although she has basic obedience, her new owners would get free sessions with a good trainer local to them! We would LOVE to find Lexie a home in time for Christmas, either foster or adoptive.
Good yogurt (plain) helps tremendously with dog farts. Start with small amounts and make sure the yogurt has active cultures. Brands like Chobani are best. Best of luck
She is so cute but about the gas check to see if she has corn in her food my mastiff mix at 5 months could clear a room once I changed his food it stopped completely
She sounds PERFECT for our family….but sadly is just TOO far away.
Does she need to be placed with another dog or can she be solo (at first)?
Whoops, hi, Steve, I replied elsewhere rather than direct to you. Lexie can definitely be a solo dog! Please contact Red Hook Dog Rescue for an adoption application: harithspi at gmail dot com
Lexie is adorable and your description is a scream! No sugar-coating here, no sir-ee-bob!
About the farts, my rescue Matilda’s farts could burn eyebrows off, and she’s barley 30 lbs.. So I switched her to a different food (It’s California Naturals Kangaroo & Red Lentil – yes, Kangaroo, it took me a minute to process it too) and it cleared the farts right up.
All human eyebrows now remain intact in my house, thanks to a corn-free diet for Matilda.
Best wishes for a fur-ever home for Lexie!
*barely* NOT *barley* ha ha ha
Best dog bio ever.
Hi Steve! She could be a solo dog at first! NO small dogs or cats for her though as she chases them. Contact Red Hook Dog Rescue for an application: harithspi at gmail dot com !
^^Agree^^ Best dog bio ever! In our house it turned out that chicken in the kibble was the culprit. Switched to salmon or lamb kibble and the fumes cleared. DEF check into food allergies!! Please, something so simple should not keep her from finding a great home.
How do we find about Lexie? We would love to give her a “forever” home. Have a fenced in acre. She would be a in and out house dog, farts and all. Cougar
