Dixie FKA Oceana Border Collie Senior Female
Elizabeth City, NC
Hi I'm Dixie. I am currently looking for a home that allows me to be your only love and someone who will continue my training in the home. I went into a foster home for 3 months, while I underwent heartworm treatment. My foster mom was THE BEST. She taught me all sorts of tricks like sit, paw and pretty and settle (for my mat/kennel). She got me used to kennels where she no longer had to watch me on camera anymore. And last she got me to be tolerant of other dogs but I would still get into scuffles with the resident dogs because hey I'm Dixie! I did very well with the cat in the home so if you have one that's okay. A little bit of my backstory is my owner died and I was stuck in a pen with 4 other dogs. They had to cut us out of the pens since there was no way in (or out). When I came to the shelter I was completely shut down. I didn't know that humans could actually care about animals. Through my foster and a few other people along the way I learned that people are pretty amazing. Now I want a people of my own. While I am looking for that special home I do require that you continue with my training because well I'm kind of like a teenager at times and will see if I can push your buttons. But my smile is genuine and I attach easily. So if your not in it for the long haul I am not your girl.I would do best while I am navigating this world of people in a single person home or a very quiet couple. Right now while I am still learning kids would be too much for me to handle. I am now housetrained and walk very well on leash.If you have any questions or would like to adopt Dixie FKA Oceana, please reach out to the adoption group directly. PetSmart Charities does not facilitate the adoption process. Thank you.
