REECEE, THE OFFICE MUTT (Yup, still in Training) 

ReeCee is a Pit Bull and was born in Cisco, Texas on August 6, 2018. When ReeCee was 6 weeks old she had a large abscess on the left side of her face. As a result of the abscess she now has nerve paralysis. This has left her with a permanent, but endearing, smirk. ReeCee joined the Lazy 3 Animal Care team in November of 2018. ReeCee enjoys her job of meeting new friends. Because Reecee is so shy she mostly likes meeting other four legged friends. She likes making her rounds when the staff are eating because she always manages to get a little something from everyone! She likes taking long naps under Tammy's desk on her blanket. She also likes to go for long walks outside for her potty breaks! (This is also her play time to stretch her legs) Away from the clinic in her spare time she enjoys going to local Furballs and competing in costume contests where she just recently took first place in Abilene at their Mardi Gras themed Furball.
