Dixon is a wonderful and lively puppy with a lot of potential! He has a variety of positive qualities and a playful nature. 

 

Dixon-isms:

 

  • Happy and Smiling: Dixon has a cheerful disposition and brings joy to those around him.

  • Sweet and Cuddly: He enjoys cuddling and forming close bonds with people.

  • Intelligent: Dixon has the capacity to learn and adapt quickly. He thrives in an environment with new challenges. 

  • Playful, Mischievous and Adventurous: He's full of energy and loves exploring and playing.

  • Confident: Dixon is self-assured and approaches new experiences with a positive attitude.

  • Fetch: He's a pro at fetch - he hasn’t met a ball he doesn’t want thrown. 

  • Gets Along with Other Dogs: Dixon enjoys the company of other dogs and learns from them. He will do best with another active dog in the household to mentor him. 

  • High Prey Drive: Dixon has not been around cats or small dogs and animals. While he is a sweet boy, he does have a high prey drive and may not do well with cats and small dogs and animals. 

  • Fenced-in Yard: He's accustomed to a spacious, secure area where he can run and play. Dixon is high-energy and requires several hours of play throughout the day. 

  • Expert Couch Cuddler: After an active day, he totes his favorite blankie to the couch and enjoys relaxing and snuggling with both his human and dog companions.

 

Needs: 

  • Basic Commands: Dixon is still working on commands like leash training, sit, stay, and wait. He's in the process of learning and needs consistent training.

  • House Manners: There's room for improvement in housetraining, counter surfing, and chewing. This is common for puppies and can be addressed with proper training and supervision.

  • Ideal Home: Dixon would thrive in an active household with another energetic dog to play with. He'd also do well with a family experienced in handling high-energy breeds who can offer him frequent breaks throughout the day to encourage house training. 

  • Considerate Children: Dixon is best suited for a family with considerate children who understand how to interact with a young and lively dog.

 

Dixon is a puppy with great potential, and with the right family and training, he's likely to develop into a well-rounded and well-behaved companion. Consistent training, positive reinforcement, and plenty of physical and mental stimulation will go a long way in helping him become the best version of himself.
