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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
