LexiLexi is a 2 year old Pit/Bulldog mix who is deaf. The Yonkers Animal Shelter asked SNK9 for help with Lexi, who was surrendered to them in March of 2010, for no particular reason.

Looking back, the shelter staff think that Lexi was surrendered because she is deaf, a “detail” which was never disclosed to them and took quite a while to find out.

Lexi is smart and will learn command signals as other dogs with her condition have. She likes to play with other dogs and loves being around humans. Lexi has a blanket in her run and takes good care of her things, never destroying anything. She also loves stuffed toys.

If you think you might be the one to give Lexi a chance and some love, please contact us and we will provide a trainer who specializes in working with deaf dogs to get you started.
