Well helloooo there! I'm Dixie, a 4(ish) year old 55 lb red tick hound mix in search of my forever home! I grew up in the south living the outdoor life even though I had an "owner". One day after he threatened to shoot me for being a bad hunting dog I found myself at the shelter. It's been a few months now that I've been living as a pet in foster care and here's what I know: couches are soft, I love to play with dogs and toys and people can be really nice and awesome! My foster mom says I'm the sweetest and am going to make the best dog for the right family. What's the right family for me? So glad you asked!!! I'd love another dog and a fenced yard to run around and play, this helps me get my energy out. I love to snuggle with my foster family (human and dog) and am super smart and food motivated which makes me easy to train, and I'll need a patient family who will continue to work on my training.I can't live with cats and would do best with older kids who understand I might get excited and knock them over. If you think I'm the dog for you please apply! Dixie’s adoption fee is $375.
