Hi, I am Dixie and I am a 2-year-old terrier mix who was surrendered to the shelter by my last family since I was not getting along with my canine brother. I really just wanted to get all of the attention!!! I lived with that family in Long Branch for about a year and half after they rescued me from what they called “a sad home” as they felt the first family was not taking good care of me. So here I am again looking for what I hope will be my forever home-as the saying goes, the 3rd time is a charm!
I am a very social girl who loves people and will greet anyone who wants to be my friend. I do sometimes jump up on people – I can’t help it as I just get so excited! I love to play too, and tennis balls are my absolute favorite. I really don’t know my own size as I am determined to be a lap dog and will try to fit on your lap if you will let me. I love to go on walks and get out and enjoy the fresh air!!! I have made so many wonderful friends here and I love when they take me for outings. They tell everyone that I am very well behaved in the car and can walk with them for miles 🙂 I am so excited to find my forever home where I can be the only pet and get all of the attention!!! Don’t you worry as I have lots of love to give back and I will fill your heart completely!
Here are some wonderful words from my foster family:
“Dixie has been an absolute joy to foster! She gets very excited when people come to the house and she does bark but once she is introduced to who entered she is nothing but smiles and kisses. She loves to cuddle literally anywhere, take long naps on the floor or couch, and loves to give kisses. She stays in her designated area and does not try to “escape” or chew/ destroy anything (other than her toys which she loves!). She listens to what you tell her she can and cannot do although she may need a reminder from time to time haha. She loves people however this means she does not like to be alone so she does bark if you go upstairs and leave her downstairs by herself (we have her sectioned to just our downstairs) she is very good on walks and overall has been an angel during her time as our foster pup!
Dixie was adopted by her amazing foster family on January 10,2018 they couldn’t imagine life without her!
