Rescue Me ID: 17-04-23-00206DIXIE (female)

Saint Bernard Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    DIXIE was saved from a shelter in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. She has been estimated date of birth of 16 November 2014 and weighs around 79 pounds. DIXIE was originally adopted from the shelter in Texas a year ago with another dog who was her best friend. Sadly for them, their family relocated to Spain and so returned them to the shelter, where DIXIE's best friend was adopted. When we got DIXIE up to the rescue in Maine, she was depressed and clearly stressed from all the trauma of losing her family and best friend. We spent time with her ... (Read More)and as you can see in the video, she is much happier now, just waiting that her perfect forever family will find her soon. DIXIE does have some training, however, she knows how to play people and will test to see if she can get away with things. When I call her in after play-time, she gets more playful and wants me to chase her, she knows when it is time to give up and come in, she is a very smart girl. DIXIE was initially a little grumpy with the other dogs, but I think that was more as she was stressed, depressed and had no idea what was happening and the other dogs are young and not yet well mannered in that they was jumping on her and not respecting her pace. She has never been aggressive, but she let them know she was not happy, to which they responded and left her alone. We do not have cats in the rescue so are unable to comment on how he would be around them. DIXIE rides great in the car and walks nicely on the leash, she is well mannered, I have not seen her jump up, but she does jump around when she gets excited, she definitely enjoys going for a walk and knows when the leash comes out it is time for that walk. DIXIE is a big girl weighing around 80 pounds and definitely needs an active family who can ensure she gets enough physical exercise, playing ball in the back yard once a day is not enough for this beauty she needs to go on long walks, hikes and places where she can run. DIXIE would benefit from going on road trips or to places that can offer her some adventure, allowing her to take in the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will not only give the physical exercise she needs, but also the mental stimulation. Although DIXIE has had some training, she would benefit from training with her new family so that both her humans and DIXIE can learn each others personality, body language, boundaries and expectations. This also helps with bonding and reinforces to DIXIE that her humans are her alpha. DIXIE is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed. If you feel that you have the heart and home to give this precious soul a wonderful life, please go to our website, under the APPLICATION tab, complete, then submit the APPLICATION. Our process takes around 2-4 days, and ensuring your references are aware that we will be calling, could speed up the process. Once you have been approved, we discuss any questions in regards to the dog you are wanting to adopt, then you complete and submit the contract, make payment and then we can work out the pick up / transport arrangements. Please do NOT submit an application if you are not looking to take home a new best friend within the next few weeks. http://www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org DIXIE WILL BE located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. There is a local hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Saint Bernard in Maine
    Saint Bernard Dogs can make good pets in Maine if they match your IifestyIe. The Saint Bernard is an enormous, friendly and trustworthy dog. Saint Bernards are very patient with children and are extremely devoted to their people. It is important that Saint Bernards are thoroughly trained and socialized as puppies so that they are manageable as adults. Despite their huge size, Saint Bernards can live in an apartment if they get enough exercise.

lnteresting Saint Bernard Trivia Low-Cost Maine Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Saint Bernard dogs have rescued thousands of people from freezing to death in snowstorms and avalanches. A Saint Bernard can track and find a person buried under an avalanche of snow. Supposedly, Saint Bernards used to wear small casks of brandy intended to warm the people they were sent to rescue. The monks of St. Bernard Hospice deny this having ever been the case.
