Lexi - Brat (Boston Rat Terrier Mix)
by Debbie L.
A lady had bred this Brat (Boston/Rat Terrier) litter to sell, with no luck. She took 5 to the shelter and Lexi was the last to be adopted. I asked the attendant if she would bite. He said no she had no teeth . She playfully bit my hand and drew blood. This should have been a red flag as to what was to come.
She was so small and cute. He said she would remain small. (LOL) She is now up to appx. 37 lbs. I immediately took her to Walmart and bought matching white, pink, and black Diva bowls, a cushion bed, food and toys. It did not take too long before I had renamed her "Lex Luther". As good as I had been to her I could not even kiss her without being growled at. The end of my new cherry King bedroom suit has been gnawed , countless shoes ripped apart. Last week she gnawed about 3 in. of baseboard. Nothing chewable is safe. Not to mention the plug she chewed out of my new living room rug which i immediatley rolled up and stored.
This dog is very selfish, gets highly ticked when someone is in her spot. My 4 year old Border Collie mix gets the brunt of it . Lex bites her ears, jumps on her back, even does remarkable acrobats off of her, such as flips. She would have been a wonderful circus dog. Unfortunately I call her the dog from hell. Comments anyone?
