Comfort K-9 Dog Lexi’s Journey to Baltimore
By Pfc. Kelli Blackwell
Lexi was born in Brevard County, Fla. On Feb. 16, 2019, Lexi’s owner surrendered her to Brevard County’s animal shelter when she was 6 months old. Brevard County is unique in that its sheriff’s office runs its animal shelter. At the shelter, the deputies noticed that Lexi was a very lovable and mild-tempered puppy and thought she would be a good fit for their therapy dog program.
Pfc. Kelli Blackwell’s Biography
I grew up in a police household. My father was an officer with the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) police department for 27 years, so being a “daddy’s girl,” I grew up wanting to be just like my dad. At a very early age, I had it in my mind that I would be a police officer or a teacher. After graduating high school, I went to Towson University to study elementary education. College was not what I expected it to be, so after my first year I decided to take time off from school and work full time.
