You haven’t been greeted properly until you walk in the door to see her wiggle butt greeting you! This girl is always happy, smiling, and wagging her tail. You can’t help being in a good mood when she is around.
Dixxie was found abandoned on the streets of Memphis. Upon being rescued, she immediately was so excited to be loved on.
An ideal home for her would have a yard for her to run and play. She loves other dogs, but can be overwhelming at times with them, she is still learning to take cues from other dogs, she is still learning other dogs boundaries. She would also do well as an only dog as long as she was provided activities and exercise.
Dixxie has been around older kids, but no younger children (5 or under). She’s never shown any signs of aggression when they are around.
Training is always a good bounding tool with any new dog, Dixxie already knows how to sit but would love to learn lots of other commands and tricks. She is working on her leash skills, but with lots of walks she will get the hang of it very quickly. She is crate and house trained. She loves rides in the car.
Her white socks and sweet ears add an extra bit of cuteness! This girl is ready to find her perfect family to give her all the snuggles and loving she so deserves!
