VT Dog Rescue

VT Dog Rescue is a non-profit canine rescue focused on saving the Underdog. The sweet dogs who are passed over day after day simply because they are not perfect. Who is an underdog?- older dogs who are wise and love to snuggle- tri-pawed dogs who are happily enjoying life with 3 legs- shy dogs who need a little extra love to help them build confidence - dogs who may limp or have a physical limitation that humans see as a flaw, but they accept with dignity - dogs who are missing an eye and have adapted to navigate their world The Underdogs have, against all odds, retained their ability to be loyal and trusting companions who love us unconditionally. We believe the Underdogs, just like other shelter dogs, deserve to be rescued and placed in loving, responsible homes where they can shine.

Meet Lexie

Lexie and her sisters are well socialized, happy curious and playful pups.  They are young with an estimated date of birth of 1/14/2023 and are expected to reach about 45-50 lbs as adults. They are currently between 12-15 lbs each.  As puppies they are still working on their housebreaking and crate training skills.  They are playing really well with other dogs and enjoy interacting with people.  We highly recommend training classes for all of our dogs to get everyone off to a great start. Training recommendations are available. HIGHLIGHTS: - Friendly   - Well socialized  - Curious - Working on housebreaking skills - Working on crate training skills - Affectionate & Snuggly - Enjoy playing with other dogs  - Up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines - Have not been spayed yet* * Based on current veterinary recommendations, these puppies have not been spayed due to their young age. We do require proof of this procedure at a later date as part of the terms of our Adoption Agreement. Please discuss the correct time for this to be done with your veterinarian. Our adoption fee is $400 which includes age appropriate vaccines (such as Distemper, Bordetella, Parvo, Rabies), worming, micro-chipping, and health exam.
