When Lexy first arrived at her new home she was nervous, shy and riddled with emotional issues from her life of breeding and confinement. Lexy had no idea how to function in a stable home, but despite her challenges, she knew she just wanted to be loved.
"Her wounds did not hold her back. From the very first day she only loved and all she asked was to be loved in return," Mackay said.
Because she'd been kept inside for her entire life, Lexy essentially had to relearn how to be a dog, and how to enjoy everything life has to offer. "We spent many months working with a trainer to help her learn to walk on a leash and understand 'outside,'" Mackay said.
