WANTED! A relatively chilled out family or person who does not have any cats or other dogs but would love a sweet, cuddly, loving, side-saddle riding, chilled out, middle-aged girl.

This is a summary of Trixie's story.

Trixie spent the first four years of her life on a very short chain and was very nearly starved to death. Animal Aid Vermilion area rescued her and took her into foster care. A best guess is that Trixie is part English bully and American Staffordshire pit.

Once Trixie got into foster care she started gaining weight like crazy. We would learn that she is hypothyroid and has a genetic disorder called spondylosis (spinal issue). It took us quite a while to get her weight back down but that and her hypothyroid has been stabilized for quite some time on very inexpensive medication. We have followed her spondylosis and x-rays do not show any further deterioration. We did however find out that both of her back knees needed repairing, we raised funds and two successful surgeries were completed.

Trixie can now Run and Jump as she pleases when she pleases. Fortunately, she's just not real hyper although she does like to silly play and loves playing with adolescent kids and adults. But she's just as happy sitting or laying with you in a room. She is most relaxed and absolutely loves to ride in a vehicle. Trixie is easy to bathe, easy to give medicine to and really not even difficult to nail clip. She's potty trained. She's wonderful. She's beautiful. She loves people and everybody who meets Trixie wishes they could take her home.

Trixie is about 8 years old now and we need to find her that home where she will live out the rest of her days very comfortably and very loved. She has been with me for a year now and only God knows I do not want to let her go. However, I do have cats and lots of other dogs and Trixie is not comfortable with other dogs being around her resources. She needs her own family who will take her on Long rides and long walks and/or has a fenced-in yard. She deserves companionship and her own family.

About Animal Aid for Vermilion Area

About Our Rescue Group...

To date, Animal Aid for Vermilion Area, a non profit 501(c)3 animal rescue organization located in South Louisiana, has helped rescue thousands of animals.

We have worked through 5 natural disasters, including hurricanes Katrina and Rita. In the aftermath of Katrina, we helped unite people with their pets and saved cattle from drowning and starving.

We also helped pass the Pet Evacuation Bill that keeps service animals and pets from being left behind during a disaster.

We have been helping animals and their owners for over 25 years, and one of our goals is to rescue and rehome as many animals as we can from the local Animal Control facility, a high kill pound with no adoption program.
