PARKLAND, FL- Dixy is looking for her forever home after having a rough start in life. She ended up at Miami-Dade Animal Services as a skinny, dirty and sad 11-year-old dog in need of a loving and caring home. 

Wonder Paws Rescue placed Dixy in a foster home that gave her all she needed to grow into a healthy, happy, well-behaved girl with a beautiful brindle coat and endless love to give!

Dixy is perfectly house-trained and very low maintenance. She is always up for belly rubs and sleeping by your side for most of the day.  She absolutely loves walks and does a little tap dance of excitement before heading out the door. She loves playing tug-of-war with her favorite rope toy and will make you laugh when she flings the toy around all by herself. She also won't pass up a chance to roll around on her back in the grass and grunt for joy.

Dixy is sweet as sugar with people of all shapes and sizes, but she politely requests to be the only animal in the home, as she doesn’t love other dogs or cats. But don’t worry, she can absorb all the love you have to give. She is totally fine with being touched all over and does not startle easily, but in order for her to have the peaceful retirement she deserves, we think it’s best that she go to a home without small children.

She is generally good on the leash and has improved a great deal while in her foster home, but still gets very excited and pulls on the leash when she sees another dog. With more training and trust building we are confident she will continue improving!

Unfortunately Dixy has had little to no interest for being adopted in South Florida, where she and her foster family live, which breaks our hearts. However, they will be visiting family in Connecticut until the end of August, and will be available for meet and greets with potential adopters in the Northeast during that time!

We know that someone out there has a Dixy-shaped hole in their life, and she is ready to start the rest of her life with them as their most loving, loyal companion.

Please share to help Dixy find her forever home in Florida or the Northeast!
