I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable young dog. Dixie is the kind of baby who snuggles in, loves you up and then puts her head on your shoulder. She's so sweet (while being initially just a bit shy) and truly kind with every possibility open to her. That's the case unless a dog like Dixie is in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space or on the streets hiding in the shadows. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great rescuer in Tijuana, Mexico for saving Dixie (and her adorable baby Minnie) from abuse and certain euthanasia. She could see that her temperament was so sweet and her need so great that she couldn't turn her back on this very special girl. Dixie was immediately brought to be vetted, given the appropriate vaccinations, spayed, granted a health certificate and brought to a dog-loving foster to begin her education as a cherished house dog.

When we think of rescue, our thoughts don't usually go onto the tough streets of Tijuana. But these forgotten dogs deserve our help every bit as much as their US counterparts. They all have been used for opportunistic either breed and discard or to sell as a puppy to a Mexican mill or rich tourists. Virtually all of them have lived on the streets and survived by learning to be social. They love people because compassionate tourists were their means of survival. They can sit in any language and fit quietly into any scene to earn a treat or discarded meal.

This was the life waiting for Dixie...just about 2 years old and approximately 15 - 18 lbs. This is such a perfect size to be able to accompany her family just about anywhere and then fit perfectly onto a loving lap. Dixie will always fit right in due to her great temperament. She is already starting to understand that sweet, cuddly and cooperative behavior makes great things happen in life. Dixie was one of the extremely lucky very young dogs to show great promise in her socialization skills at a very early age. The US rescuers couldn't help but fall in love with Dixie! We all had a clear picture of this very sweet and fun-loving girl in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes her for life.

As Dixie becomes comfortable in her home, she will become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with her behavior, the more she will shine with her accomplishments.

We would like to see Dixie in a home that includes her in family time and activities (and of course some lap or couch-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart dog like Dixie and teaches them the skills to fit into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation.

Dixie would also be a wonderful companion for active retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Dixie would enjoy another gentle dog to play with (she'd be thrilled to spend her life with her baby Minnie since they've been through so much together)...she's so sweet and gentle as she puts her positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend.

Dixie was identified as a Wheaten Terrier/Terrier mix by her Tijuana rescuer. This is difficult to determine with certainty, but we can see the scruffy and very sweet Terrier breed in this very kind dog.

Dixie is a non-shedding or lightly shedding girl with the cottony-soft hair of the Wheaten Terrier. She will require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep her hair so shiny, healthy and matt-free.

Dixie is arriving on transport in Boulder in mid-May. Applications are currently being accepted for our very sweet girl with the dark, expressive eyes. If interested in this adorable ...and often very fun and entertaining best friend, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie-ADOPTION PENDING, a Boulder Wheaten Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Wheaten Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Wheaten Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Boulder.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boulder 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 Boulder 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 Wheaten Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Wheaten Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
