One-year-old Alexis left the shelter and went to Crown Ridge Rescue in Tennessee, 1,000 miles away. Alexis came to the shelter after her owner's house burned down. As is common for her breed, she's not a fan of strangers. So the shelter decided Alexis could only safely go to a rescue that was experienced with her breed, Fila Brasiliero. Alexis adjusted pretty much instantly to her new home, including her new mom and dad and her new doggy buddies.
