This is the story of Dixie the English Bulldog / Labrador Retriever
In April 2009, her profile read:
Dixie is about 17 months old. Dixie and her littermates were part of an unwanted litter and surrendered by the owner.
The mother was an English Bulldog, and the father was a Lab. Dixie was adopted about a year ago and recently returned to be rehomed.
Her adopter has been very sick and can no longer take care of Dixie. Dixie is timid, but is sweet and playful after a short time.
She is frightened around strangers and new situations, but does fine when reassured.
She needs more socialization and an owner with patience to help her come out of her shell.
The ideal home for Dixie will have another dog that is very sociable.
Following is an email received from the family who adopted Dixie:
Here's our girls! They get along quite well now - constantly playing and loving each other :) Thank You for the opportunity to expand our family!
