Dixie #5 Black Labrador Retriever Female 7 Months Old ID#3385
Dixie and her sister Trixie arrived into foster care after being surrendered by a farmer when he couldn’t sell them. They were spending their days chained to a calf hutch on their dairy farm. Their father is purebred black lab but the farmer was unsure if the mother is purebred as she is on the smaller side for a lab. Please read Dixie’s blog from the bottom up to learn more about her time in foster care.

Dixie has been living with the Irwin Family for five weeks with her sister Trixie. Dixie is doing well and has learned the daily routine.
Today it snowed in Bellefonte and Dixie enjoyed running around in the fenced in backyard with her sister and the resident dogs. She is teething and for the most part only chews on her toys.
Dixie hasn’t had many accidents since she arrived at our house. She sleeps in the crate with her sister each night and is created when the dogs are home alone, although that isn’t very often.
Dixie is more reserved than her sister Trixie, but Dixie still likes to be around the pack and can be found where all of the other dogs are!Dixie will make a nice pet for a good family!

Trixie and Dixie have been at our house for three days and they are having a fun time! Both dogs enjoy running in the fenced in yard, playing tug of war, and stealing the tennis ball from the resident alpha dog, Babe (a Brookline foster fail of ours)!
Unlike all of the other fosters we’ve had, these girls do not get on furniture nor on the bed at night. Trixie and Dixie are crated at night and do well.
Dixie is less trusting of humans and has occasionally gone into the crate on her own, just to get some alone time. As each day passes we are getting to know Trixie and Dixie better!

We have had the black lab puppies for 24 full hours and boy are they something! Upon arriving in the fenced-in back yard, they enjoyed running, sniffing, and chasing a tennis ball.
Today, it’s been raining all day, so much of the day has been exploring the inside of our home. The sisters were given the names “Dixie” and “Trixie”, and it was soon clear to see, which dog fit which name. Trixie is the outgoing pup of the two, exploring everything, while Dixie has been quite reserved and timid. Dixie and Trixie quickly learned how to go up and down the deck steps and are interacting more with the resident dogs.
