Dixie is a 2 yr old, 28lb female beagle/cur mix rescued at the last minute from the shelter in Sebring, FL. She is "pleasingly plump" and could use to lose a couple pounds. Dixie is good with other dogs, strangers, and kids - in fact she loves attention. Cats unknown. Please consider adopting Dixie and fill out an adoption apolication today.
6/27/13 Update: Dixie is doing well. She is excellent on a gentle lead walking. She has been to a dog park and does very well with the other dogs. She is a bit of a shadow. She loves to follow her human around everywhere. She is walking 45 minutes a day and it is helping get her weight off. She is up to date on her shots and has been spayed. She is however, heartworm positive. She will go in for her treatment in two weeks. She is young and healthy and is expected to have no trouble with the heartworm treatment. Florida Doggie Paws will be taking care of all expenses for her treatment, recovery and follow up vet visits. We will allow her to go foster to adopt until she is free of heartworms. At that time we will finalize the adoption. Update: Dixie has completed her Heartworm treatment. In early November she will be retested and we anticipate a POSTIVE outcome.
