Pellissippi Veterinary Hospital shared SOS Beagles - Tennessee's video. ... See MoreSee Less

SHARE DIXIE! Age is a state of mind and now that my body is whole and healed I really am as young as I feel. Why put a number on sheer happiness? When Miss Cindy first saved me she told me I had this thing called rescue. It sounded cool. Then once the rescue found out I had these worms in my heart they disappeared. Miss Cindy called Miss Beth who said she could take me in a few weeks. I spent time hanging at the busy Sanders home until space opened. A volunteer transport later and I started my road to good health. I was spayed and had a dental. I had the worst mouth my vet had seen in forever. (Thank you Dr Hall and all at Pellissippi Veterinary Hospital)I had hair and infection all over causing bumps and blisters all the way down my throat. They cleaned me up and put me on antibiotics and we waited for my Heartworm treatment. Miss Denise stepped up to foster me. I was scared and confused but she has shown me love and helped me to accept another friendly dog and even a dog savvy cat. It was slow introductions as I was on crate rest and fearful but I am learning more day by day. My Heartworm treatment is over and I am better than before! I just wanted to share a bit about what we know about me as unfortunately I can't share my past. My future is what we make it, will you help me make it great? Dixie ~7 years old, ~15 lbs Tri color beagle SOS Beagles, Recycled Best Friends, Dog Rescue joint rescue. Email Bethrbf@gmail.com Knoxville TN. Limited transport available.
