About this Dog

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please download and complete an Adoption Questionnaire from our website and email US at [email protected] You can learn about the adoption process and find a Word, PDF and ONLINE version of the questionnaire by visiting: http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/howtoadopt/.   Dog's Name: Dixie Estimated Breed : Setter mix Approximate Age:  1 year Approximate Weight: approx. 50 lbs  Currently Living at:  Boarding Adoption Fee:  $300   DOG'S DESCRIPTION Dixie is a delightful, energetic girl looking for a loving family to spend her life with. She is very energetic but also loves to lay on the sofa next to you and relax as well. She is great with other dogs but can be possessive over her food if there are other dogs at home with her. She does have some separation anxiety so she needs to be with a family who can spend a lot of time with her. She is dopey and very affectionate and loves everyone she meets including cats! Is your family looking for Dixie girl? Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.            Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery (for dogs over 6 months old), rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dog also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.  Foster Program:    Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.  For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/foster/ or email our Foster Coordinator at [email protected] Sponsor Me!    Make a tax-deductible donation today by visiting us at http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/donate/ .
