Pixie made her first appearance to us when she was 3 months old through a rescue. She was a happy healthy Mini-Aussie-Poodle who later would have to overcome life changing events.
Pixie was presented at 6 months old having been mauled by 3 larger dogs. Pixie had injuries over 40% of her body and these wounds could not be surgically reduced. For two months Pixie endured open wound management which involved sterile saline and antibiotic flushes multiple times a day and pain medication. Pixie was a fantastic trooper through the ordeal never once using bad language or biting.
After her wounds were healed Pixie was then spayed and she was placed in a foster home with hopes that home would be her forever home. After about a year, Pixie was returned to Dr. John and he decided to keep her as part of his family.
Pixie, over her time with Dr. John, has demonstrated wonderful empathy with many people and animals without fear. It was because of this behavior that Dr. John got her enrolled with Sit-Means-Sit. Pixie has fallen in love with all of her trainers at Sit-Means-Sit and will enthusiastically greet them on sight.
Some of Pixie’s accomplishments to this day include the following:
1. Canine Good Citizen Certificate – American Kennel Club
2. Advanced Canine Good Citizen Certificate – American Kennel Club
3. Membership into Caring Angels Dog Therapy Group
We are truly blessed Pixie has overcome the challenges in her life and maintained a trusting loving attitude toward all she meets. Pixie is here at Community Critter Care on most days that Dr. John is working. Pixie will also be making appearances in senior homes, libraries, and other areas therapy dogs are needed to help people get through difficult and stressful situations.
