Arrival Story:
One day my daughter and I were in a store and someone had a very cute puppy which we found out was an Anatolian Shepherd. We had never heard of this breed and looked up some information about this dog. We loved how they looked and their traits so we began our search so that my daughter could receive an Anatolian Shepherd puppy for her 14th birthday. We found a breeder not far away and sure enough, for her 14th birthday she picked out a wonderful little puppy.

Since Dixie is an Anatolian Shepherd and these are dogs native to Turkey we didn't know what to name her. Dixie's parents had Turkish names and at first we tried to figure something out that was Turkish. But then we just decided that this dog didn't live in Turkey but in Dixie! So Dixie became her name. She is a very affectionate dog to her family but is very careful about strangers. She takes good care of her farm and her family. It was a very sad day for us, on Saturday December 9th, 2006, when my daughter had to take Dixie to the vet to be put to sleep. Dixie had bone cancer. She enjoyed a little over 11 years on her farm, and her body rests near a tree by our dairybarn. Until we meet at the Rainbow Bridge!
