My Story

Date into Rescue: 6/1/2022

Reason for being in rescue: owner release

Special Needs: Dixie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative.

What kind of home would be best for me: Dixie is a young girl whose life so far has been sheltered. Every experience is new for her. Thankfully she is living in a loving foster home that is teaching her about being a pet - potty training, leash training, etc. Dixie requires a home with an experienced owner. She could live with another low key small dog or cats, but would be happy as an only pet. Dixie will not be adopted to a home with children. She can be toy aggressive and needs a home that will not introduce toys to help Dixie be the best version of herself. 

What is my personality like: Dixie belonged to the same family since she was 6 weeks old. She belonged to the teenage in the home & the teenage is now off to college & life at home has changed. Mom is now keeping young children in her home and young children make Dixie nervous. The family made the selfless decision to surrender Dixie to rescue so that she could find the right forever home.

Dixie was a beloved companion, but her life before rescue was sheltered. Her time outdoors was limited (the family believed in pee pad training) and socialization with other dogs and people was limited. As a result, new experiences and new people make Dixie nervous. Once she knows you are okay, she is the happiest girl you will ever meet. 

Dixie’s very energetics but wants to be in your lap & will be a velcro dog. She’s sweet but needs an experience dog owner because she is afraid of new things & noises, much like a puppy mill dog, that everything is a little scary. In her foster home she is doing well with potty training. She is learning to walk on a leash and does well when wearing a leash and harness. Dixie gets along with the other small dog in her foster home and is indifferent to the resident cat. She would be fine with another dog that was calm but might be overwhelmed with multiple dogs. Dixie loves her crate & has always slept in one at night. In her foster home she is crated when the humans are gone. She is toy aggressive, so toys are off the table.

The perfect home for Dixie would be an experienced pet owner that’s home a good bit & could help her overcome fears of new things. She is a snuggle bug & will be a sweet girl for her human.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Timid at first, but warms up quickly

Tips and Tidbits: Dixie's birthday is 06/11/2016

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
