Thanks to all of the support Lexi has received over the past 36 hours we can now very happily say
'You did it!!!'
Enough money has been raised for Lexi to have her operations. All of us here at LRK cannot quite believe the overwhelming generosity from so many people who have given to Lexis appeal and helped to spread her story.
We will keep everybody updated on Lexis' progress as she goes through her operations over the coming weeks. Please check this page and our Facebook page to keep following her story.
Thank you all again, it couldn't happen without you all.
Lexi found her forever home 12.1.2016 where she can recover in comfort after her operations
Lexi was brought to us in November via a local council. Unfortunately Lexi has been very badly treated in her life so far and was in a very poorly state when she reached us. As soon as Lexi came to Lincolnshire Rescue Kennels she was taken straight to The Veterinary Hospital and under went a consultation with the vet, Lexi was then given medications to treat her immediate health problems.
However Lexi is now in desperate need of an x-ray and two operations to bring her back to good health, this as you can imagine is going to be an expensive process and Lexi will need a lot of extra care during the weeks before, during and after her surgeries.
Some of Lexi's health conditions
Overbred - Lexi has been overbred, basically used as a puppy machine and had her last litter this year aged nine. Due to this her teats are so saggy and hang so low they swing when she walks. A further consequence of this is that she is riddled with internal mamory tumours (one has even broken through the skin).
Skin conditions – when Lexi arrived she was crawling with fleas , and covered in bald patches and dead skin.
Severe ear infections – As the ear infections have been left untreated her ear canal has closed up to just a tiny hole.
Claws so long, they grew into her feet. This has left poor Lexi with a deformed and painfull toe, also the bottom of her paws were so sore and swollen she could barely walk and it was hard to see her pads.
Despite all this Lexi is very loving and trusting of humans , which is amazing considering what she’s been through , she deserves some love .
Lexi is a fantastic dog. We would love to be able to get her the treatment she needs and once she has recovered would love to find her the loving home she really needs and truly deserves.
Many thanks for taking the time to read about Lexi and for donating and spreading her story.
