I have been fostering her for about two months. I have sent her to training because she was obese and hard to handle (she weighed 84 lbs) She is now at 62 lbs, is easy to handle, and is continuing training with a professional training organization I never intended to keep her; but, find her a GREAT home.See Dixie’s Instagram @ Dixieneedsahome!
Dixie will do excellent in a home where she will get a lot of attention. She would do best as an only pet. Dixie loves to run around and play with her people in her back yard then curl up close to you when you go inside. She has begun agility training, treadmill walking, and dog pulling just to keep her fit and LOVES showing you what she can do! See her Instagram @ Dixieneedsahome!
You need to meet her at her trainer’s in Knoxville, TN to ensure that you and your family are a good match. See Dixie’s Instagram @ Dixieneedsahome!
|Fido Lifestyle:||Activity Buddy, Family Dog, Lap & Cuddle Dog|
Dixie is an extremely sweet, loving dog. I began fostering her after her prior owner had to give her up when circumstances forced her into a no dog apartment. Dixie needs to be the only dog in the family with a fenced in back yard. She loves kids and people, not so much other animals, and is definitely an indoor cuddle buddy. She has had extensive obedience training and will walk on a loose leash without pulling, is learning agility courses, can pull 800 pounds at dog pull competitions, and loves to run around and play with you and the kids. Her training was with an organization called “Sit Means Sit” and allows her new family to obtain training for free for the rest of her life at any SMS office if she (or her owner) needs refresher training. She is also crate and muzzle trained. She just needs someone to love her as much as she will love you!
