Lexie's New Collar

Lexie is an 8 week old purebred smooth coated Collie puppy that I am fostering through Collie Rescue of Greater IL. Here is her bio from CRGI...

Strange things happen when you see a puppy for the first time. Your eyebrows wrinkle together & upwards, a big smile stretches across your face, your shoulders go down and your hands stretch out. An involuntary 'Ohhhhh! Look at the baby!' raises up from your heart and escapes your lips and your can't wait to pick that little bundle up and snorgle her neck.

Lexi is a puppy who carries a Level 10 Cuteness Alert - so be prepared for all of the above when you see her. We'll even warn you about the possibility of a Level 11 knee-melt and maybe even a Level 12 Cuddle Attack - this is one little girl who will wiggle her way straight into your arms and your heart.

Now, Lexi is NOT a fluffy ball of fur, and never will be. She is a smooth collie, and is one of the prettiest we've ever seen. She is an elegant little girl who will blossom into a sleek, lovely aristocrat of the collie world. Smoothies have beautiful movement, are very smart and extremely affectionate - and people who have them are often hooked for life! Add the fact that her lovely tri-coat will gleam like ebony and require much less maintenance than a rough, and well, what more could you ask?

Lexi's days are busy doing puppy stuff - playing with toys, learning about housebreaking, and walking on a leash, so your summer will be filled with fun as you guide her through her growing months. Every day will be exciting as you watch her grow and learn, and she will have a special place in your heart forever - puppies are like that! We strongly recommend that Lexi attend Puppy School when she is old enough - not only for the bonding it will produce between you, or the education she needs to be a canine good citizen, but because Lexi is blind in one eye. Lexi's left retina was detached at birth, so she doesn't know any other way to see, but training class will help her be confident of your guidance, and help her learn to move freely through life. Lexi's right eye is normal, and you'd have to watch closely to notice that she sees from only one eye, but you should be aware that sometimes she might be surprised by movements on her left.

Puppies are always little jewels in the Collie Rescue treasure chest, and Lexi is certainly one of our sparkling best. A bundle of darling in the beginning, and an elegant lady to share your life - we envy the family who adopts our little Lexi - will it be you?
