We adopted Dixie from the Humane Society in Harrison, AR when she was almost 1-year old. We strongly believe in adopting from shelters and rescue groups, and when we saw Dixie's photo on Petfinder.com we knew she was our girl!
Dixie is 100 pounds, but is convinced she is a lap dog! She is very playful and loving, but also quite stubborn! We don't know exactly what mix of breeds she is, but our only concern is that she have a loving and happy home to call her own.
She is still pretty apprehensive about her harness and leash, and we suspect perhaps some abuse occured by her previous owner. But with lots of time and patience and love, she is slowly warming up to being on them for car rides and walks.
Dixie loves to give kisses and "talk" to us when she has something on her mind! She has very sweet eyes, and she knows how to use them to her advantage!
We love all of our rescued animals and encourage others to seek their new "forever friend" at their local shelter.
