Pet of the Week: Dixie

Meet Dixie! She’s the Heart of the Rockies Radio Pet of the Week!

Dixie is a 3-year-old Pit Bull/Bull dog mix. She has lived with cats in the past and reportedly did great. She’s made some doggie friends here at the shelter but can be a bit picky so make sure to bring your pup to see if it is a match! Dixie is a wonderful dog who enjoys snuggling with her people and sunbathing in the yard during the day.
