About Me:

Hi, I'm Dixon!

I love my human friends at WAG and they love me. I am a sweet and sensitive boy that would make a loving companion.

I have lots of energy and am quite the athlete! I love to work for my treats and agility is one of my favourites! I love to go camping and hiking, please take me on all of your adventures!

I am happy to see people when I am out on walks but at the same time, I can also be a bit nervous. I am selective when it comes to meeting new dog friends on leash and don't always get along with everyone. However, my best friend used to be a little Daschund! I have also stayed at Ruth's Pet Hotel in Pemberton, and have played off leash with 25 of my dog friends! I will thrive in an environment where my owners have lots of interest in continuing my training and take me on adventures!

I love to take my favourite stuffies and bury them in the yard or play a game of chase.

I love all the girls at WAG and the volunteers they introduce me to...When I really trust you I can't wait to say Hi to you! My whole body wiggles with excitement!

I would like to never be at a shelter again, I really hope to find my forever home soon! 

My Story:

I had been with the same family since I was a puppy but they no longer had the time required for my high energy needs. I am sad and confused to be in the shelter and am looking forward to finding my forever home.
