DIXIE is a 1 year, 2 month old spayed black female Lab who weighs 44 pounds. Meet Dixie, a petite young lady who is looking for her forever humans! If you are active, can make friends gently and slowly, are willing to generously use your treats to help her reach my full potential I could be your girl. So far my hobbies have included taunting my foster brother until he wrestles or runs with me, chasing butterflies in the yard, winning the clean bowl club award and taking treats super gently. She has had good house manners, no accidents, is good in her crate. She has loads of potential with a little training and is treat/food motivated plus a really quick study. She's been doing well with both resident foster siblings (a boy and a girl!), is a little timid when you first meet but she warms up really quickly and has made several friends between the vet and our neighbors already. Needs a home with a physical fence so she can run and play without wandering off. Dixie's Story - Owners son brought the dog home as a puppy, was inside for a couple of months then moved outside on chain. She kept breaking the chain and getting away and owner told rescuer he would shoot her if she didn't take her. She did. She is a little shy but warms up quickly. Dixie came in with scars on her back that are healing nicely but hair may not re-grow over all the scar area. Good with other dogs, living with two at her fosters. Knows sit, and come. Will have a training addendum as she is a young dog. Hasn’t been on lead much, getting better with an Easy Walk Harness. House & crate trained. She is approved for kids 10+. More info soon!

Update: Dixie thinks this whole foster dog gig is tough work! It's so hard to spend the day laying on foster mom's lap and helping her type on her laptop. It finally stopped raining at her foster home for a few hours and so Dixie has been romping around the back yard, tossing pine cones and chasing butterflies. She would really love a family of her own to hang out with and play. She's looking for active folks to run zoomies around, a couple square dog meals per day and a place to lay her head at night. She's easy to please

Update: A little about myself, I'm petite, cute and according to my foster folks I have a sweet disposition. Initially I was scared and a little reluctant to meet new people and dogs but I've gotten over that real quick...the humans and dogs here are really cool especially my foster brother who wrestles and plays with me non-stop. I'm a fast learner and have been working on my manners over the last week. I have a good appetite and I settle down well in my crate although sometimes I'm not quite ready to get into it!! I went on my first walk around the block last night when it FINALLY stopped raining here for a little while. I was a zig zagger on the leash according to FM but was easily redirected, I met some neighbors who were pretty nice too!
