My story

Dixie came to the shelter with 4 other dogs. These dogs were abandoned by their owner and the Sheriff's Dept. picked them up. SHe is a sweet girl, but clearly is under-socialized. It takes a minute for her to start wagging her tail, but when she does she really enjoys attention. She has not been on a leash much, so we are helping her with that. She does well with her littermates, but has not been exposed to many dogs. We are slowly introducing her and she is doing well. We will cat test if needed. She is UTD with shots, dewormed, heartworm negative.
