I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
THIS IS THE INFO FROM CURRENT OWNER:
Dixie is a 4 year old neutered-female boxer-cattle dog mix, 45-50 pounds, we got at about 1 year old from an animal shelter.
She is housebroken. She plays gently with our cat. She has always gotten along great with our elderly, little Scottie, who is the “alpha dog” She’s learned to do a number of tricks and commands with little effort from us. She is one of the most intelligent dogs we’ve had including a border collie we once owned.
Dixie has always preferred adults over children although she loves teenage boys.Our younger girl [now 13] has worked with her and taught her most of her tricks.
At seemingly random times, Dixie will look at one of the girls, drop her ears and tail, divert her eyes and give a low growl, walking away.
A local Vet gave us advice on how to deal with this, but we found it very hard to get everyone on the same page in a family of five. We usually crate her when kids come over.
Earlier this week, Dixie came into my daughter’s room whilst she had her hamster out of the cage. My daughter ordered her out of the room, bent down to pick up the hamster. Dixie jumped and bit her in the mouth badly enough that she needed stitches. This is why we need for her to have another home as soon as possible.
She has the boxer's short hair, and needs to be an inside dog especially when it's cold or wet. She shivers in the cold. She will wait inside the door for her paws to be dried off if it’s wet outside.
Dixie is a love hound. She might grieve us and be a little withdrawn at first, but comes around with love! She loves to learn and to do her tricks – we think she would be a great prospect for show training. She is used to a training collar, which we have to use because it’s easy for her to slip out of her regular one.
PS - the crate and training collare can go with Dixie to her new home.
