Breed: Border/Heeler mix
Gender: Female (spayed)

Meet Dixie! Dixie is a 3 year old, fully vetted and spayed, energetic and loving Border Collie Healer mix. She has lived with her current owners for 2 years after being rescued from an abusive situation. Dixie is truly a bundle of joy and loves to hug! She lives with another female dog and two cats. Dixie and her “sister” play well together, but she doesn’t get much opportunity to play with strangers. She enjoys herding anything and everything that moves! Dixie lived her first year of life in a very small kennel and in turn has some bad separation anxiety- whining mostly; she has never chewed anything up but is very vocal with her opinion about being left behind during the work week. During the summer months Dixie goes on runs in the neighborhood and her anxiety tends to improve. With some training and exercise Dixie would be the perfect dog for any Border Collie lover.  She is such a smart dog, and even though she hasn’t had much training, she knows boundaries and can dismiss her desire to herd when called. Dixie knows how to sit, stay, lay, and come. She has even been trained to pick up pine cones and put them in a bucket! She loves getting her belly rubbed! Dixie would really like to be loved by a family who knows her breed and has plenty of time and land to help her reach her full potential.
