(Dog Reference: PPR16-82)
The adoption donation fee for Dixie is $250
Dixie is an 8 year old, 10 lb. female Yorkie-Maltese Mix who is looking for a home.
Dixie is looking for a person that will have the patience needed to give her time to bond and trust them. She is a little unsure of strangers, but tolerates being held by different people. Her groomer said that she did well for them. She doesn’t like her feet touched, but she is doing better with that issue than she had been.
Dixie tolerates other dogs - she doesn’t play with them, but doesn’t fight them either. She has a good appetite. She gets fed twice a day. She eats grain free food as she may possibly have some food allergies. Regular grooming using allergy shampoos seems to keep her itching under control. When it bothers her Benedryl also helps.
Dixie does not like being separated from her humans. She barks when you leave the room. She does sleep in her crate at night. I recommend continuing this until she knows “who is the boss” along with your daily routine for her potty needs. She does like to play with her humans. She likes to wander around the back yard sniffing - when she’s not doing that, she wants to be on your lap!
Dixie has the capability of being a loving and devoted companion… she just needs someone who will work with her and be patient as she learns to trust and be comfortable in her new life.
