Beautiful Lexi is being rehomed as her current owners feel that they cannot give her what she needs in their environment.  Once Lexi gets to know you she likes nothing more than a cuddle and a bit of rough play and she loves to be tucked up in bed, completely covered by a blanket from head to toe!

95% of the time Lexi is a calm, loving dog both inside and outside of the home.  However, she does have the very strong guarding instinct that this breed is known for and will guard her humans and their property if she feels that they or it are being threatened.  This manifests into her going into ‘a zone’ and barking at whatever she feels the threat is, and although she has never bitten anyone or anything, being such a big, strong girl, can make those encounters tricky to handle for both her owners and visitors who come to the home.

So for Lexi we are looking for a very experienced home with someone/people with experience of Lexi’s breed, ideally in a rural area and in a calm environment, where she can live a happy and relaxed life.

To apply for Lexi, please email info@hollyhedge.org.uk stating your current situation & working hours and reasons for wanting to adopt her.  Please note, we will only be able to accept applications that match her needs.  Please also consider if your work hours and situation will still be suitable on a long term basis.  Thank you.
