Dixie has seasonal allergies. I give her Zyrtec daily. The vet said her allergies have to do with something in my backyard, so they may change in a different environment
|Vaccinations:||Yes, within the last year|
I have been going through a lot of personal issues that have caused my life to be very hectic. I have become very busy and lost some of the emotional capacity I need to give my dogs the love and attention they deserve
I am trying to rehome both by dogs, Loretta and Dixie, ideally, I would love for them to be rehomed together. However, I know that is not realistic. Dixie would do great with people with an active lifestyle. She would thrive with walks and training. I think she would be good with various ages.
I will take Dixie anywhere in the country to find a good home.

Dixie is a border collie mix. She has as much energy as she does love. She always looks so happy and gets along great with people and animals. She wants to be with you all the time. She is an extremely smart dog and would thrive with someone who wants to spend time training their dog. She needs a fenced in yard or will need to be on a leash. Although with work she may be able to go off leash. She is kept in a kennel when I am not at home and uses the doggie door freely when I am home.
Dixie recently went to a 3-week train and board program. She did great, but I have been unable to keep up with the training. The trainer agreed to a free training session with their new owners.
