MEET DIXIE - VERY LOVING LABRADOR CROSS COLLIE. NEGLECTED LADY NEEDING TLC
Dixie is new into our care from 13th September. She has come into our care having been neglected for some time. She has sore skin which is broken and patches of fur missing. The back of her body is bald and very sore as is her underbelly. As a priority our ne girl has been seen by our vet. Dixie is suffering from Demotectic Mange. This is a parasite that lives in the air follicles and is treatable. Mange is not contagious to people or other dogs. This poor girl has been left untreated for some time and due to a difficult and very stressful past life her condition has been made much worse. She is not receiving treatments and has been given a steroid injection and tablets to ease the itching. Dixie will be having medicated bathes and a tablet named Bravecto. Due to experince of dogs suffering mange before we are confident that this amazing lady will improve very quickly. We do have details on Dixies past life however we prefer to discuss with people if genuinely interested in her. Dixie is extremely loving and adorable. She loves humans and adores cuddles and loads of company. She does not get along with otehr dogs nd can be reactive. This is due to being unsocialised at an early age. Dixie is only three years old and has been pushed from pillar to post all her life. She is lovely and such a people dog.
THE HOME DIXIE NEEDS
Dixie is looking for a special home with lots of company. Due to her stressful past and sad life previously we ensure she receives a calm and quiet home. She loves walks so will need exercise on regular basis with a confident and responsible person who is mindful of her dislike of otehr dogs. Dixie is very affectionate and pretty and really does deserve a new start in a five star home. Dixie could live with older children in a family but will need to be the apple of your ye as the only pet. She has so much love to give and a home whwre she will be left for long hours is not suitable. Company and TLC are on the top of her list. Anyone wishing to discuss Dixie's treatments and needing more information please get in touch with us. Good Life Dog Rescue will support any veterinary care needed for Dixies mange treatment. A local home in Yorkshire is preferred. If you have experience of dealing with dogs with manage in the past we would also love to hear from you. This girl really needs a new start and some very special home comforts.
