Martin County Pet of the Week - Week of June 4, 2021

Lexi

Lexi is a super sweet, people loving 2-and-a-half year old German Shepherd.

Her favorite activities are playing and running. She knows several basic commands such as “sit” and has lived with children in the past.

What makes Lexi unique is that she has a medical condition called Megaesophagus.

Due to this condition, Lexi has to eat upright in a special chair (called a Bailey’s Chair) and maintain a very strict feeding schedule.

She doesn’t let this stop her from acting like a regular dog!

Lexi has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite; it is hard not to fall in love with this adorable lady.

If this special needs pup sounds like she may be the one for you, please call the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast (HSTC) at (772) 223-8822 to schedule an appointment. They're located at 4100 SW Leighton Farm Ave in Palm City.
