Dixie is a 13-year-old, 17-pound Shih Tzu. She is as mellow and loving as they come. And boy does she love food! She may generally have the lower energy level you'd expect from an older dog, but when food is involved she'll practically do back flips to charm it out of your hands. Even when it's something healthy like carrots (her favorite snack). Her new family will probably need to take her on regular walks to help her lose a few pounds. Dixie Chick still has some pep in her step and enjoys her walks. She's not setting any speed records, but she does walk nicely on a leash. She's polite to the dogs she encounters and never barks. Dixie isn't big on playing. She's just happy to coexist with other dogs and people. She fits in beautifully with everybody in her foster-family pack, which includes several dogs and kitties. She's self-sufficient and reliably house-trained. She also knows how to use puppy pads, if needed, and appreciates easy access to the outside.Dixie isn't demanding, aggressive or vocal. She takes lots of naps throughout the day, lounging on a blanket or in her dog bed. At night, she's happy to cuddle next to you. When it's mealtime, it's a good idea to keep Dixie separated from other dogs' bowls. If you don't, this hungry little gal is likely to eat their food as well as hers. Like most senior dogs, Dixie has some age-related hearing and vision loss. This doesn't slow her down one bit - she keeps up with the rest of the dogs, jumps on the furniture (if invited) and is fine navigating stairs. She needs eye drops each day and is very good about letting you put them in. She's also on a daily allergy medication. Dixie came to us when her guardian was going into assisted living and felt she couldn't offer Dixie the life she deserved.
