Dixie, August 1999
A small, struggling shelter in rural Arkansas contacted us about Dixie - a 2-year old black female who had been owner-surrendered and had been at the shelter for several months. She was very boisterous and considered difficult to place because she demanded lots of attention and could jump any fence less than 6 feet tall. Dixie had been tested for heartworms and was declared to be free of them, but when she went in to be spayed, further tests revealed that she had heartworm disease. LABMED agreed to fund her treatment.
Dixie's new family has a 6' fence around their entire yard but Dixie is kept well occupied. She is either in the house or playing in the yard with the kids and the other dog. Their activities include fun on the trampoline, swimming in the pool, or her favorite activity, riding around in the car with her hew family!
LABMED is glad to have been able to help Dixie with her second chance!
