Dixie is an 18 month old spayed English Mastiff mix. She is an extremely fearful girl and needs an owner who has patience and understands behavior and training. Her future forever owner needs to be experienced with larger breeds and dogs that are fearful. Dixie did used to live with other dogs and cats so she may be able to be integrated into a home with other animals. Dixie does well with house-training and is also crate-trained. The kennel staff has worked very hard to gain Dixie's trust and she is slowly coming around. We are learning more about her every day. She knows how to sit and she does walk politely on a leash. Dixie needs a home without any small children. It would be best if there were only older children, probably more than 15 years old, in the home. Even though Dixie is scared and timid, she is not an aggressive dog but needs someone to help her work through her challenges. We are working hard to try and find a rescue to help place Dixie. If you have experience and are interested in Dixie, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
