We are pleased to announce that Diego, our original Pet of the Month, has been adopted! The rest of October's POTM belongs to Dixie.

Dixie is a 1 1/2 year-old American Staffordshire Terrier with an absolutely amazing personality. The poor baby had a tough life before coming to the shelter and has a few scars because of it. She is spayed, house trained and updated on all her shots. She is very smart, listens to commands and loves learning new tricks! She prefers to go on walks with an easy walk harness and loves her tennis ball.  She loves treats but can be a bit rough when taking them because of her excitement. She is currently working on taking them gentler and we advise her future owners to continue on with that lesson.

She has made loving bonds with some of the staff members at Forever Paws and should easily become attached to whomever will adopt her! She is a great dog with a lot of energy and loves to cuddle. She needs daily exercise and prefers homes with no cats or small children. Check out the rest of Dixie's profile here. Forever Paws is located on 300 Lynwood street in Fall River. You can come in, call or email them if you are interested in adopting this sweet lovebug.

UPDATE: On Oct. 30, Dixie found her new forever home! Thanks to her new family for considering adoption and making this sweet canine part of your family.
