Do you love the idea of having a dog but don’t know if one could fit your lifestyle? Consider a small dog like Rex, a stray, 8-year-old male terrier mix who loves walks and sitting on laps.


When Rex arrived at LCSPCA in September, his long, white hair was a mess and his right eye showed signs of impairment.

Veterinary examination confirmed that his right eye is impaired and will require follow-up care, possibly for the rest of his life. However, because Rex can see out of his left eye, he is functioning just fine.

Like all dogs, Rex will need daily exercise. A few walks or games of fetch should suffice. Because he’s petite, during inclement weather, playing ball indoors can be a convenient exercise option. Rex was recently neutered. He will also need to be groomed regularly.

Ultimately, Rex wants a new life with someone he can love, who can make his next years better than his first.
