Arrival Story:
Dixie came into our lives through a friend's tragedy. Our friends, who own Dixie's sister Duece, lost their beloved Lucy to a rattlesnake bite. They contacted the breeder of Lucy, and it so happened that they had a pregnant rat terrier with the same bloodlines. Our friends loved these dogs very much, and wished that we could have one too. Eventhough Dixie was our pick by process of elimination (she was the only other female since our friends picked Duece first,) we couldn't have picked a more perfect dog. Dixie comes from Modesto, California, about 2 hours away from our home. Dixie and Duece get to play together regularly and fight like sisters too!

Bio:
Dixie had her first litter of puppies on her owner's 24th birthday, August 10th. She gave birth to 5 healthy pups: 3 boys and 2 girls. Her owners adopted 2 of those puppies to join Dixie in sharing the household. In Picture 8, I am very pregnant, in case you can't tell! There were 5 puppies crammed in there! My owners loved to feel my belly gurgle when the puppies wiggled around. I was playful and frisky until the day before I gave birth. I love being a mommy, and I am very good at it. I can play rough with my puppies sometimes, but they sure keep up!
