Dixie is a wonderful, loving, friendly dog who wags her tail with her whole body. Very affectionate and attentive. She is well trained on and off lead, perfect with house training, and just wants to be part of your life. She is very prey driven and will chase small animals if allowed. (We've worked on that and she's gotten way better but she has not done well with cats). When she get's excited she likes to carry something around in her mouth - usually a ball or a toy, but she also likes to carry her leash (it is quite adorable). She loves to run, does well hiking and climbing, and has recently gotten her Coursing Ability title through the AKC in lure coursing (she was timed at 22 Mph loved it and was totally amazing). She does tend to chew - mostly her toys and the pieces she leaves are affectionately called Dixie Debris- but you do need to be mindful of leaving things out that she can get to and chew. I found this pretty easily manageable. Her only downfall is her occasional dog aggression.
