From the Foster:

Dixie is the sweetest, friendliest little meatloaf of a pup! She absolutely LOVES people and will do anything for a butt scratch! She is so adorable and immediately wins everyone's hearts when she sits down at their feet, then reaches one paw out to touch their leg and ask for pets. If someone sits on the floor she's instantly in their lap, sticking her butt in the air, flipping onto her back, and offering her belly for scratches. People cannot get enough of her cuteness!
Dixie is great with other dogs and enjoys the dog park, but it's good to know that she's a bit mouthy. Dixie is used to playing with the "big boys" (aka her brother Ham) so she had learned to be dominant and immediately tell everyone she's in charge, so that way she doesn't get stepped on! She's all bark, no bite so just like her brother, she's never had any issues with others! Her back right foot is a little misshapen, and bothers her in the cold a bit, so we simply keep a booty and this one foot and all is well!
At home, s he will  bark at people and animals out the window, but she knows this is a little naughty and comes the second we call her!  Dixie and Ham  both adore couches, beds, blankets, and dog beds - anything soft!  While the other dogs play, she usually is cuddled up on the couch with one of her people, happy to snuggle.
Dixie is the biggest sweetheart imaginable. She and Ham make the most wonderful "odd couple" and will make a family feel so complete and happy!
