Dixie's Story...
Dixie is a charming 3-year old Italian Greyhound Mix who has lived her life outdoors until coming into rescue. She came to us as an owner surrender when she had a litter and her family did not want to take on that responsibility. Both Dixie and her pups are now in rescue and looking for forever homes.
Despite the fact that Dixie was outdoors her whole life, she is acclimating to life indoors and loves everything about the warmth and safety she feels in her new environment. She is still a little skittish with new noises and things around the house (like blow-dryers and large items) but every day she seems to become more curious than nervous. When Dixie feels comfortable and safe she is an affectionate girl with a quirky and playful side that will melt your heart.
Dixie does fine with children, but because she would need time to get used to her new environment, the kids would have to be patient and gentle. She would also prefer a home where expectations are clear and her schedule is consistent…this would allow her to get comfortable and maintain her housetraining.
Dixie has been around other dogs and cats and (after a proper introduction) enjoys playing and hanging out…but the love and time of her people is truly where Dixie’s heart lies. She loves to follow her foster mom around the house and enjoys playing catch, pulling tug toys, and chasing balls around. This spirited little gal also adores laps, ear rubs, and snuggling up for naps and TV time. Dixie will burrow under your covers at night, but sleeps just as well on her own bed. She is a truly devoted girl who wants nothing more than a warm home with people who will keep her safe and adored forever.
Dixie is housetrained, spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie, a Lisbon Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua for sale in Lisbon, or seeking a Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Lisbon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lisbon already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lisbon breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua breeders who help with Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lisbon paves the way for another one to be saved.
