Lexi is a lov­ing, big, su­per playful dog who is a great com­pan­ion. She’s happy to just re­lax with “her peo­ple” for long pe­ri­ods of time — but is al­ways up for a good tug of war and will chase and re­trieve squeaky toys with glee. Lexi is a 3-year-old, medium-en­ergy dog, who is good with kids but would like to be the only pet in your home. Meet Lexi 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tues­day through Sun­day at the An­i­mal Wel­fare League of Queen Anne’s County in Queen­stown. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 410827-7178 or email adopt@awlqac.org.
