Arrival Story: Trixie was left at the shelter by a man who said he and his family were moving and could not take her along. Sigh. It is a familiar tune, especially with all the foreclosures happening everywhere. If his story is the truth, I know they are missing Trixie every day because she is a sweet, affectionate dog full of love.
Bio: Trixie is a Tibetan Terrier mix with movie star good looks! These photos are before her scheduled makeover. But you can still see the gorgeous girl she is.
Trixie is a little shy and needs some patience while she warms up to you. She seems to have more confidence when she is around other dogs, so special consideration will be given to homes with a doggie playmate for Trixie. In her foster home she is BFF with 2 other female dogs: a 35 lb. Australian Cattle Dog and a 10 lb. Cockapoo! They are quite the trio. But she gets along with all the dogs here and currently, that means a total of 7 doggie playmates!
Trixie would make a great family dog, however, too many constant family visitors might prove scary to her at first. We think obedience classes will help boost her confidence, as well as a family who understands how to encourage a shy dog to trust.
