Dixie is just over 1 yr old and was an owner surrender.
She is friendly and affectionate
She is medium size and has good house manners especially for her age. She has a lovely natural tail. She is being fostered with 2 male dogs, horses, an inside cat and a barn cat.
Dixie can be bossy with female dogs so will do best in a home with just male dogs. She likes to play but is not overly excitable or hyper. She does need some supervision appropriate to her young age. Dixie has never had formal training but is currently getting some training in her foster home. They are working on leash walking in the presence of other barking dogs and she responds well to consistent direction. We would like to keep Dixie in the Albuquerque area to be sure gets more training. She would benefit from being in a class and learning to socialize with dogs of different sizes

UPDATE: Dixie has been ADOPTED
