Hi, I’m Dixie and I am super duper happy to meet you! I am the happiest little lovebug looking to steal hearts and laps.
I am a sweet soul ready to follow you anywhere and give you lots and LOTS of kisses. I love to have my belly rubbed and I enjoy snuggling with humans whether on the couch or in bed at bedtime. I am a good little girl overnight but sometimes during the day, I have to use a pee pad; I also might have a little accident if something too exciting is happening. I am learning to walk well on my leash, I’m just so excited we’re going somewhere. I already know some basic commands but I am super smart and ready to learn more.
Even though I am still young, I don’t chew things and don’t have much interest in toys. I am happy to just spend all day with my humans. Don’t get me wrong, I do like to play the chase game with my foster siblings, but really, I like to do my own thing. I can get upset when another dog gets too close to my food, but my foster family is helping me work on not getting so upset. I love to be groomed and my coat is so soft, you’ll want to pet me all day long.
I am ready to wiggle my way into your home and heart if you’ll let me. Did we just become best friends?
Medical note: Dixie was given Pro Heart 12 on September 17, 2021 (this medication protects from heartworm recurrence for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick preventative until August 2022. In September 2022, she will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round ongoing treatment.
All dogs available for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex come fully vaccinated, including lepto, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested (and are on heartworm/flea preventative while in our care). At adoption, adopters receive a 6-week free trial of pet insurance.
SCAR does not have the resources to adopt animals to the United States and we can only adopt within a 200 km radius of Windsor, Ontario. Please do not apply if you do not live in Ontario, within 200 kms of Windsor.
