Meet Dixie

Dixie's mumma, named Nova, came into DCH care to have her puppies in the safe environment of DCH foster care. She had her babies in a nice warm lounge room on a cold stormy night when she was able to enjoy a nice soft bed with the heater running to keep her babies warm.
She raised 5 beautiful Foxie Mini puppies.

Dixie was the 4th born of the litter but is the alpha of the litter. She was the first to eat on her own and the first to venture out of her nesting box. She is a very dominant dog who demands attention and pushes her way into things to make sure she never misses out.

She loves a good pat and will be a very loyal dog.
She has long and strong legs and allows her to jump the highest of the other puppies. She has a beauty spot on her back near her rear.

The vets have identified that she has a hernia which could require further surgery to repair the hernia if it does not resolve itself. This will need to be monitored and reviewed after 6-8 months of age. The vets reviewed the hernia and decided her muscle and tissue were too weak to attempt the repair at the moment and to review it later in life. If she requires additional surgery this will be at the new owners expense at a later time.

Dixie will have received all 3 puppy vaccinations and has been desexed, microchipped and treated with flea and worm prevention.

She is ready for adoption into a home where she can have access to indoors as well as outdoors and receive lots of cuddles and attention for the rest of her life.

Dixie will need obedience training and we would recommend attending a puppy school which she can now do as she had had all her vaccinations. She will need additional toilet training but is used to toileting on a synthetic grass matt and or puppy pads when inside.

Located in Acacia Gardens, NSW. Will only adopt locally within the Sydney area. In person meet and greets are required before being able to adopt and a property inspection maybe required. The foster carer would appreciate as much information as possible up front to help try and identify the most suitable home.

Adoption available after the 19th November.
