Meet Dixie

Dixie came in as an owner surrender as they wanted to get chickens and they raised and trained her to be a pig hunting dog and they were afraid she would kill the chickens so she was surrendered to us with Dakota. She is shy but very sweet. It only takes a few mins for her to warm up to you. We don't recommend livestock since she was bred and trained to be a hunting dog. She has never lived in a home so she is not housebroken. At 7 years old, she has lots and lots of energy and we wouldn't call her a social butterfly, she tends to be rather aloof and just wants to check out her environment for interesting things. She is a Pointer/Coonhound mix so she'd probably love to do some nosework. She pulls like the dickens on leash, so we recommend a harness. It was difficult to get good photos of her as she didn't want to sit for the photo session. Dixie is a bit overwhelmed at all the chaos of a shelter and is much more attentive and affectionate when she is not distracted.
