This beautiful girl is Dixie, this week's CityStream Pet of the Week!  Dixie is waiting very patiently at the Seattle Animal Shelter for her future best friend to come along and take her home forever.  Dixie is about 3 years old and is an American Bulldog mix.  She is SUPER smart, responded to my "sit" and "stay" commands like a champ, and is independent and sweet to boot!  And it doesn't hurt that she has a soft, gorgeous spotty brindle coat!  Dixie will do best in an active household - she needs lots of exercise as well as structure.  She will be brilliant at obedience training, and maybe even agility or some other activity that would require her to use her brains!  Stop in at the shelter and see if Dixie is your new best friend!
