Dixie Doo

We adopted a lab/beagle mix from the Humane Society almost 4 years ago. More than likely she was abused as a puppy. When we first brought her home, she was terrified of men. She wouldn’t go near my dad or grandpa at all and was a little skittish around Tim. She is such a quiet dog. Most of the day she spends napping on the couch like a cat. She will even allow one of our cats to lick out her ears!

Due to the fact that she was a bit shy and 3 years old when we adopted her, she had been in the system for awhile. In fact, she had been moved from shelter to shelter and even came to our state from a neighboring state! She had been adopted out and then returned with the comment that she was too much work. This was all very sad because when we met her she proved to be such a sweet dog.

She is now 7 years old and still the sweetest thing you will ever meet. She has opened up to people so much more. If my parents or grandparents stop by our house, she will dance by the front door and be so excited to see them. She is also so gentle and caring to Charla. She has allowed Charla to climb on her, kiss her, brush her fur and so much more. I never had a dog as a child, so this has been so special for me to see.

I guess there’s no point to this post really. I just saw her sleeping on the couch across the room and realized what an important member of the family she is.
