Meet Miss Dixie!! Poor Lady!!!
She's a DD (Displaced Doberman) for the 2nd time!

Please help with Miss Dixie's diagnoses so she can see if the 3rd time is really the charm!!

Meet sweet 7 year-old Dixie! She was adopted from DDR two years ago but her adopter was recently diagnosed with cancer so she was returned. There is no way to describe Dixie other than to say "she is a trip." This girl makes you smile all day long. With her HUGE personality she instantly wins over everyone she meets and is smart as a whip. She can slide any gate latch with her nose and open screen doors with her teeth so extra caution is needed with this little Houdini. Having said all that, she is great in her crate and never tries to escape. She is also great with other dogs, cats, and humans of all ages. Super playful, she will bounce around like a puppy when she's playing. She is sharing her foster home with her best friend Oliver, who is a sweet Dobie mix pup.

Dixie will not be placed for adoption at this time until some of her respiratory and possible cardiac issues can be investigated.

Special Needs if any:  To be determined.

Geographic areas: Northeastern states including New England

The Sponsor A Senior program helps Seniors by raising funds for their rescue programs. This helps offset some of the additional costs that come with caring for a senior (diet, medications, supplements, etc.). Please read more about this program on the Sponsor A Senior page.

Miss Dixie is looking for a sponsor! The cost to sponsor a Senior Dobe is $40 per month or $480 per year. You can sponsor a Senior for one month, one year, or somewhere in between. To sponsor Miss Dixie, use the PayPal button below or visit the Sponsor A Senior page for instructions on sending a check. Thank you for any help you can give, it is MUCH appreciated!
