Rescue of the Year - LEXIE

Lexie was hit by a car near Chattanooga, TN and brought to a shelter. They think it was a Lexus that hit her, thus her name Lexie. Michael Shirley and his wife, Amy, (a vet) took her into the rescue. Doc Shirley discovered that Lexie had a cancerous tumor on one of her mammary glands which turned out to be mammary carcinoma, a very malignant form of cancer. Dr. Shirley was able to get in there and remove the tumor quickly.

A year and a half later Lexie seems to be cancer free. Now she gets to spend her days going hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains and curling up with me at night. We take weekly trips to the Three Dog Bakery too for some tasty goodness. Lexie loves anything peanut butter! She is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I'm extremely thankful for her.
