Dixie was found by a feeder road next to a freeway. She was roaming, looking for food, hungry and dehydrated. Despite her rough start, Dixie is a super sweet young girl. She loves people and loves to be petted. However, she is still scared initially when new people approach her. This is most likely because she had a cruel owner and was abused. With time and love, Dixie will learn to trust and be able to get over her fear. In just a couple of weeks, Dixie has been crate trained and learned which items she is allowed to chew. She has also learned several commands: go inside, sit and come. She is ready to learn a lot more and show her new family what a sweetie she is and how smart she can be. Dixie gets along great with other dogs. She is very playful and loves to run and play tag with other dogs. She is also good with kids age 2 and older.
