Dixie is a senior German shorthair pointer. She is purebred and has hunted but not in a little while. Her healthy weight is around 50-55 lbs. Dixie adores her humans and is still very much a pup in spirit. She has bursts of puppy energy and would probably appreciate a fenced yard to play in. Dixie has multiple lipomas (fatty lumps) and some arthritis but otherwise seems to be in good health. Dixie can be bossy with some dogs, especially when she needs to let them know she doesn't want to be bothered once she is settled in somewhere. She had always lived as an only dog prior to RCHS and would be happy to go back to that but she is currently doing fine in a foster home with multiple other dogs that respect her space. She has lived with kids in the past but is looking for a quieter, more adult home now. Dixie has really great indoor manners and does not need to be crated while you are away. She does prefer privacy when she is eating, especially from other animals in the home. Dixie would not be a good fit for a home with cats.
