BIO: Hi there, my name is Dixie. My elderly owner, who could no longer take care of me, gave me to a woman that was going to be my new forever Mom. A couple weeks after getting me, she decided to give me away to anyone that wanted me because she was supposedly allergic to me. A very kind woman decided to take me in for fear that if she didn’t I would just end up as another “free” statistic, especially around Christmas. She was also looking for a companion for her younger little dog and was hoping I would fit the bill. She fell madly in love with me, however I am a little too dominant for her younger dog, and she feels that it would be in everyone’s best interest if I was adopted out as an “only child”. There hasn’t been any aggression, it’s just obvious that we are not happy being together. My hair is normally longer, but I was just recently groomed for these pictures. I am good around children 8 and up for sure but do not know about younger children. I am house-trained (I do know how to use a doggie-door), UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped. I am not afraid of strangers and I absolutely love car rides and to snuggle. I do not play a lot, but do love chewing on my bones and toys. So, if you are looking for a loving and faithful companion to share your heart and home with, I just might be your girl. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt me. (Extenuating circumstances may apply). I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI. Not sure if cat friendly.
**UPDATE: Dixie was adopted 1/4/2020 by a wonderful family in Westland, MI.
