Has a Special Need

Dixie was purchased as a puppy by an elderly couple who kept her as an only dog for almost 7 years. Unfortunatley, Dixie's owners both passed away in the same year, and she is now being cared for by a loving family member. This took some adjusting on Dixie's part because she instantly acquired 6 new dachshund siblings and a friendly feline brotherm who thinks he is a dachshund! Dixie is a true mini, and loves to be held, and doted on and cuddled. She is crate trained and very well mannered. Dixie would love to find a forever home where she can be the center of attention and adored. She does get along with other dogs (& cats) but would do best with older, calm dogs, she doesn't like to play and pounce around. Dixie was diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago, so she requires an insulin injection every morning and evening, but she handles this like a pro! This special need, in addition to being 12 yrs old, qualifies her for our Senior Sanctuary program. DREAM would cover the expense of her necessary bloodwork, and insulin to treat her diabetes. Dixie is a happy girl, you'd never know she has this health issue. She also has a beautiful velvety coat and will make a wonderful pet for someone looking for a perfect little lap dog.
