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 brianne@michianahumanesociety.org.

About Michiana Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

The Michiana Humane Society has been helping our community's unwanted animals find homes for nearly 100 years. We believe that animals belong with families, and we do whatever we can to make that happen!

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is currently open Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays for adoptions. You can find news of our activities on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/MichianaHumaneSocietySPCA) or our website.

Our Adoption Process...

Looking for a dog or cat? Here's how we do adoptions at MHS. Come into the shelter and find the pet you want to add to your family. Fill out an application form and leave it at the front desk. Then you call us the next morning to find out if you're approved!

Once your adoption is approved, if the pet is already spayed or neutered you can come in, complete the adoption contract, and take your baby home.

If a spay or neuter is required, MHS will schedule it within the next week. Once your pet's surgery is complete, you can come in and pick up.

Adoption fees are $135 for dogs and $85 for cats. That includes all initial vaccinations (except rabies), spay or neuter if required, heartworm or feline leukemia testing, and flea treatments.
