Trixie is a playful, cuddly young dog. She originally came from another shelter where she ended up on a euthanasia list due to a bite on her record. A volunteer realized that the bite was just Trixie grabbing for a treat, and to be fair, she grabs hard for those treats. She is not aggressive; in fact, several animal rescuers have commented that Trixie doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She needs training, not a lethal dose. A little basic obedience training would go a long way toward teaching this young dog to reign in her energy. The good news is that she is very treat-motivated, so she likes to learn new tricks. Trixie also enjoys digging through the toy box, chomping on dog bones, sniffing around for chipmunks, playing with most other dogs, and making new friends with anyone who will pet her. Trixie likes children but would do best in an adult-only home.
