Facts about Dixie

Dixie is a very special girl. She is about 6 years young now and boy can she play! Her favorite toys are sticks and tug toys. Dixie was on her last call from the Treasure Coast, and I took her in to my rescue on her last day. She was heartworm positive and has been treated and ready now for her forever home.

Dixie has a unique personality. She loves male dogs that are smaller than her. She is a dominant female and sounds really rough when she's playing. I have never had a problem with her playing with me, but she is very vocal. Growls a lot when playing tug and with sticks. She has been very gentle mouthed. I was playing with a destuffed toy she gave me, and when she grabbed it, my hand was inside it. She never hurt me. Dixie does however, nip other dogs when she thinks they need to mind her. She got her ear bit a couple of times in retaliation. I think she would be wonderful as an only dog, but would be happy with a smaller non dominant male too.

When it rains, she loves to sit on the porch with me and cuddle up on the couch. She loves to be petted, and adores car rides. She gets so excited when she knows she's going out. I can't stress enough how much i love Dixie. She just needs an adopter that understands her and is willing to learn her mannerisms. She loves to sleep at the foot of the bed at night. When I go to work, she picked the laundry room as her space, so she has a dog bed in there.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our first adoption event is Oct 24th, 2015 at the Cultural Center in Port Charlotte.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fee varies based on the age of the dog. Puppies to 1 year are $300. 1+ to 7 years old is $275. 7+ is $250. These fees help cover the extensive vetting these dogs usually require and help us save special cases like Scooter. Please visit our website or email for more information.
You must complete an adoption application. Once your application is reviewed and references checked, including vet, you will be called to set up a home visit. If you are approved, then a meet and greet will be scheduled. If that goes well, then you can have your new furry baby!
We will do a two week follow up visit as well to see how you are all adjusting.

None of our fosters will be kept outside, especially on a chain. These are family members. If you cannot keep them inside with you, then please look elsewhere.
