My name is Xena J. After the warrior princess and the lady who found me and saved my life. Last year Julie found me wandering on a country road. I was nasty, flea bitten, starving and my nails and teeth were ground down like you would expect for a dog who had been in a wire cage on concrete. She took me to the vet to see if I had a microchip—and I did! But my old family never bothered to update their information, so no one could contact them. I am probably better off.
Julie and her family cleaned me up, had me get all my shots and posted me everywhere they could think of, but still no one came. So after a year of looking and 20 pounds of much needed weight later, they decided it was time to join rescue. They had several dogs of their own and I knew it was never going to be my permanent home.
I am four years old and now weigh 54 pounds. While my body looks pure bulldog, my nose not so much. I am not really sure about that. But I have always thought I was a purebred bulldog and acted like it. Dr. Larsen will give me a complete physical and a dental and I will soon be off to my foster family. I get along with everyone and everything.
I cannot wait to fine my true forever family who will never let me go!
3/30/21 Update: We have had an exciting couple of weeks with our foster, Washington. He has been with us since early December and has made HUGE improvements. We are so proud of him! He is like an entirely different dog. As some of you know, we discovered that Washington gets along with other dogs. Since finding this out, we decided to add another foster dog in our home. We welcomed sweet Xena J and she’s fitting right in. She and Washington are getting along great. Both dogs are as sweet as can be!
4/5/21 Update: Xena has been with us for almost two weeks and is doing great. She is an easy, happy dog. She loves to be near us and LOVES attention. Xena is house trained, crate trained and knows basic commands. She is eager to please and listens very well. She gets along with other dogs and does great with our kids.
4/13/21 Update: Xena continues to do well in her foster home. Here’s a short clip of her doing some serious back scratching in the grass. She has been a pretty easy dog, but she is learning that not everything is “All About Xena” and that she may need to wait her turn for belly rubs or for a pat on the head. She loves cuddling, sleeping and treats!
