My story

Dixie is a 5.5 year old female mixed breed. She weighs 61 pounds. Dixie was transferred from a county facility so we do not have information about her previous household. Dixie can be a little nervous when meeting new people and would require multiple meet and greets before being eligible for a slumber party. Dixie has been in doggie playgroups at the shelter and has done well with other dogs. We always recommend a meet and greet with any resident dogs. We do not have any information on how Dixie might behave around cats. We believe Dixie would do best in a home without children. Please call for more information or to make an appointment to meet Dixie. (Updated 10/16/21).
