Dixie Female Lab mix 1 year old 50 lbs Hi I'm Dixie, I am the perfect family dog. I am always loving and want to cuddle. I get along with everyone I meet, I will even give you a hug! I am good with kids of all ages, other dogs and even cats. My foster family has 6 kids under 14 and 2 cats. The little kids I live with can climb all over me and I don't even nip at them. I have lots of puppy play dates with the other dogs in the neighborhood and I love it! I love to be active and play. I am crate trained and house trained. My foster family says I am the smartest dog they have every fostered because I already know basic commands. They even tell me how much they love that I sleep longer than most of the kids in the house, especially on the weekends! I am still learning how to let my foster mom lead while walking on a leash but I am getting much better every day. I love spending my days playing, taking long walks, and cuddling at night.
