Dixie is a 1 year-old spayed Beagle x Bassett who has lived her entire life at the end of a chain. My sister happened to see her while driving my parents to a nearby home a month ago and enlisted me to try to find her a new situation. After a sleepless night I offered to foster her knowing the longer she stayed on the end of a chain the less likely she would adapt well to a family. Upon arriving to pick her up we discovered she had a giant baseball sized growth in her neck which apparently the owners never noticed. got her to the vet and learned it was a foreign body that had been walled off into a giant abscess. Several hundred dollars of surgery and 2 weeks of rest she is fully recovered and ready for a new home. In just the time we have had her she has learned to be around horses three large farm dogs five cats and free range chickens. She walks on a leash is crate trained and extremely affectionate and trusting of humans despite her miserable situation before.
Three dogs are plenty for us along with our many cats and three horses so we would love to see her go to a family with a fenced yard ( she is a beagle after all!) and other pups to play with. She truly deserves a long and happy life. Of course she is free to the right home but after our financial and emotional investment we really do want to make sure she has a safe landing. Feel free to DM or text my cell if you know anyone who might be a good match for her. (We live in Fayetteville NC). We have many pictures and videos for anyone interested. 919-810-1370. Thanks!
