MEET DIXIE - VERY LOVING LABRADOR CROSS COLLIE. NEGLECTED LADY NEEDING TLC. SPECIAL APPEAL.
Dixie came into our care on the 13th September in a terrible state of neglect. Her fur is now growing back and she looks like a different dog. She had been neglected for some time and has infected demodectic mange. Dixie has patches of fur missing and was in shocking discomfort through scratching and making her skin bleed. As a priority our pretty girl was seen by our vet. Mange is a parasite that lives in the air follicles and is treatable. Mange is not contagious to people or other dogs. Dixies mange and her welfare and neglect had been on-going for some time. We were aware she had a very sad and stressful difficult home life and was previously a rescue dog. The stress she was under had brought about the mange. Dixie has now had loads of treatments in our care including medicated smapoos and is now only bald around her face. Her coat is now looking amazing and her fur has grown back. Although she still has some way to go she is looking amazing and almost back to a dog with a full coat. 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 super smart. She is a Labrador Collie cross. She loves humans and adores cuddles and loads of company and walks. She does not get along with other dogs and is very reactive when out on walks. This is due to being unsocialised at an early age. If frustrated Dixie will nip the leg of the person walking her. Due to this she needs an experienced handler or to wear a muzzle when out walking. This young dog is gorgeous and has an incredible nature. She is loving and friendly but not without her problem. 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. We are working with her too improve her behaviour and socialising issues and desperately search for a rural local home. A special home with an experienced person or couple is needed. Dixie deserves a home and some very special comforts. Do you have experience and a rural home?
THE HOME DIXIE NEEDS - ARE YOU A SPECIAL SOMEONE?
Dixie is looking for a special home with lots of company. She needs a rural home and a large garden whwre she is not in contact with otehr dogs. Due to her stressful past and sad life previously we ensure she receives a calm and quiet home. She loves walks, play times and a ball, so will need exercise on regular basis with a confident and responsible person who is mindful of her dislike of other dogs. Dixie is very affectionate and pretty and really does deserve a new start in a five star home. She has had a shocking life for over two years. Dixie could live with older children in a family but will need to be the apple of your eye as the only pet. She has so much love to give and a home where she will not be left for long hours is essential. 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 until it is completely gone. A local home in Yorkshire is preferred and someone who has experienced of dogs that have not been socialised. If you are that special humans please consider this loving dog. This girl really needs a new start and some very special home comforts.
Good Life dog Rescue is run entirely without Staff. We exists with few volunteers and all our efforts are made to raise funds to support stray dogs in need in Yorkshire. We are dedicated to the welfare of abandoned dogs and help many find the good life and a brighter future. Support is everything to us please adopt a rescue dog and consider the homeless dogs in Yorkshire. We help many homeless hounds and fly a flag high for the dogs who have no voice. These dogs are often the last to find a home or a rescue place. If you feel you are the home for Ivy then please be in touch and fill in an online application. We welcome phone calls all weekend and after 6 o'clock weekdays. Please leave a contact number so we are able to return your call. More details about the home you can offer is essential for adoption of the rescue dogs. We work hard to match humans and hounds so a happy life can be had together for both.
WE HAVE A HUGE VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS AND MANY PHONE CALLS DAILY. WE ARE WORKING HARD TO COME BACK TO ALL ENQUIRIES.
