Dixie has been adopted!
Sponsored by Margaret and Doug and their dog Riley
This darling little pocket beagle is Dixie!
She has come to us from Kentucky and was found as a stray. She has all of the typical beagle characteristics – gentle, sweet, social, calm, loving and a big tail-wager. Her big beautiful brown eyes have a pleading expression, and her long wide soft ears just beg for a little scratch. All of these great things in a little package.
Dixie is a love bug and her main goal (besides her meals) is to love someone. She is excellent with all people (even small young children).
The beagle breed are slaves to their noses; therefore, Dixie will require a fully fenced in yard that is safe for her as she will follow and get lost in a scent easily. She loves to lay out on the deck and soak up the sun!
She gets along with other dogs; however, so far has shown no interest to really interact with them. She loves to cuddle on the couch and is not shy when it comes to wanting on her people’s lap. She sleeps through the night on a dog bed or in bed with her foster parents. She is excellent on a leash with her harness and enjoys socializing with anyone that she meets.
Dixie arrived with hair loss on her back and throughout her coat. The veterinarian indicated that it likely started with a flea allergy which has now resulted in dry/agitated skin. She has seen Dr. Lucas at Southside Animal Hospital who started her on antibiotics and apoquel (anti-itch medication) for her skin. Dixie is responding well to her medications and her foster mm notices an improvement in her skin. She is eating sensitive skin hard kibble (which is grain free) mixed with a dehydrated food (also grain free). She will not be ready for her adoptive home until she is cleared by Dr. Lucas for adoption on July 4th.
Dixie is house trained and enjoys playing intermittently with her toys. She is crate trained when her foster parents go out during the day and is as quite as a mouse.
Dixie was lovingly fostered by Robin L.
