Update:

She is here! The lovely Lexi arrived last night after an eight hour drive from Chicago to E Tennessee!

Pics coming soon.

She is beautiful. Her prior owner was good enough to provide a brand new hip and elbow X-ray and very comprehensive blood panel--she's in great shape! Lexi will be eight in October, but she behaves and looks like a two year old.

She is a bundle of energy. Even after her long trip, she showed plenty of play drive. We're actually looking for her Off switch.

Lexi's prior owner wanted her to go to an IPO home. So after a week to settle in, we'll take her out to our trainer for a thorough evaluation to see where she is. She hasn't been worked in years. She does have her Bh.

Once we establish a training plan for her, she'll be off to the club!

Lexi's timing could not be better. My WL male just had his hips done and they are very bad, which accounts for the drop in his drive levels. He'll not be able to do IPO, sadly. Which left me without a dog to train till the puppy gets here in January.

Anyway, Lexi's first stop on Monday morning is to meet our vet and then she gets to goof off for a few days before we start training.

Just thought I'd give you the happy ending!

Congratulations, sounds like a nice match. Also, sorry to hear about your boys hips, hope he can be kept comfortable.

This is a great ending - I'm personally very excited for the photos. She sounds wonderful. Very sorry to hear about your male's hips though, it's a shame he can't continue in IPO.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

Lexi continues to do great! It's like she has been here forever, she fits in so well. She has lovely house manners. And, she is a cuddler! My husband is crazy in love with her. The vet was impressed by her intelligence. She said Lexi's X-rays and blood work were all beautiful, she's very healthy, only issue is an ear infection which is now being treated.

Thursday, she meets our trainer for an evaluation to see what we can bring out of her. Let's hope she shows us enough drive for IPO so she can train with the club. Fortunately, we have an excellent trainer who works with K-9s and MWDs, so he knows what he's doing.

I have been wanting to post a pic of Lexi but I admit--I'm stumped. I cannot figure out how to post a pic from my IPad to the board.

What a great ending! Looks like a perfect match!

Now that Lexi is settled in her new home, I moved her thread out of the Rescue section into the follow up forum.
