ADOPTED Meet the super cute, super perfect Dixie. Dixie is a 6 month old red merle female mini Australian Shepherd, weighing a whopping 17 pounds, don’t let those pictures fool you, she is a little girl, but has a great heart. Dixie is up to date on all her shots and is spayed.
Dixie is housebroken and walks well on a leash, she does get car sick, so if you plan on long trips, we suggest no breakfast. She will probably get over this as she gets older, and this could be from stress of being surrendered to the rescue.
Dixie plays well with all the dogs in the foster home, big and little, she is fine around cats and is good around children, though if you have toddlers or children that like to run, she will pickup on this and switch to herd mode and take chase, nipping and barking (this is what Aussies do, so we aren’t shocked) to get them in line.
Dixie is currently being fostered in the Lilse Illinois area. If you feel you would like a miniature herding Aussie, maybe you have cats to corral, or maybe you need to keep all the rabbits in the yard, Dixie could be the one.
