About Alexis

Alexis is the best of both worlds! This energetic, tail wagging, happy-go-lucky girl has the energy of a puppy, matched with the calm, snuggling behaviours of an older dog. She does mouth hands gently and jump up when excited, but settles down well. An easy fix for her new family to train! 

Ongoing training is a must for this young one! Housetraining is coming along and she's enjoying the other dogs in her foster home. She does well and learns from them. She’s submissive and is good with boundaries.

Initially hesitant at first with meeting new people, but once she’s comfortable, she’s full of kisses.

A person or family that’s willing to put in the time to train Alexis will have a wonderful companion!

Why We Love Fostering

  • I love animals and believe they all deserve a chance at love and having a happy home. Fostering has been my biggest reward in life.  Often seeing these dogs go from shy, frightened, unsure, abused, and/or neglected, to the most loving, happy, and grateful family members. People always ask how I do it, but how can I not? Is it hard to let go?  Of course, it is. But it’s not about me – it’s about getting these dogs into furever homes. When I see updates from adopters, nothing makes me happier. I trust Pets Alive to get these homes for my fosters, and when they leave me, sure I miss them, but it means I can take another one into my home. In all, I have fostered roughly 53 dogs.  That’s 53 souls that otherwise, may not be alive today.
