Lexi the Happy Boston

Subscribe in a reader

I had the privilege of meeting Lexi the Boston Terrier with her owner and rescuer Wendy. Lexi is a 10 year old, who was rescued by Wendy almost 4 years ago.

Lexi the Boston

Wendy connected with Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue through a friend who knew about the rescue. Lexi was found as a stray, and then “shelter pulled”. Midwest works with animal control agencies to place Boston’s in the Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue community.

Midwest is different from rescue’s like The League for Animal Welfare and SPCA Cincinnati because all dogs are kept in foster homes until they are adopted. The foster homes are the personal homes of volunteers for the rescue. It’s a great way to help Boston’s get healthy and adoptable.

Lexi is tons of fun, with endless energy. “I can’t express to you what a great dog Lexi is. When I first got Lexi you could tell something wrong, but she was a happy dog. She had problems socializing at first, but that only took about 4 weeks”, Wendy said. “Now Lexi is everyone’s favorite. When my nieces come and stay over, Lexi always sleeps with them.”

Fun Lovin' Lexi

Not only did Wendy adopt through Midwest, she has become a volunteer. She helps with processing adoption applications, and has helped place Boston’s with friends.

Lexi is the ultimate success story. After being found as a stray, she is passing on her new found happiness to others. Lexi is a Paw Pal with VITAS Hospice’s Paw Pal Program. Wendy (who works for VITAS Hospice) takes Lexi into hospice centers to play with hospice patients. “All of the patients love Lexi because she’s so well behaved and loves to be petted,” Wendy said. For more information on becoming a Paw Pal please contact Jill Grissom 513. 742.6310
