Mabel and Dixie just joined DRNA because their people are moving and can't take them. They are two sweet pretty senior girls who are quite bonded to each other.

Mabel (black & tan) just turned 11. She lost her sight about a year ago but she has adjusted very well. She is very easy going (except when the doorbell rings). She is great with kids. She is happy and calm when children visit because of the attention she receives. She got along very well with her owner's cat and they often shared a bed together. With the exception of Dixie, she gets nervous around other dogs. Mabel has adapted to her blindness really well. She will occasionally get disoriented, so to get her to come you need to make a noise like tapping a foot or clapping hands. If she bumps into anything, she simply changes her path without even a whimper.

Dixie (light red) is eight. The adult daughter purchased her as a pup, and a few years later, "gifted" her to the parents. They think she may have been abused because she is still skittish around men. She tolerates kids, but is not friendly to them . She is also fairly easy going (except for that darn doorbell). She also got along well with their cat and enjoyed wrestling with her. Dixie is very social with other dogs unless they are right in her face.

Mable and Dixie love the sun and will find a spot where it is shining in. They'll often ask to go outside just to lay in the sun. Mabel loves being a lap dog although she needs to be picked up, whereas Dixie will simply jump up on a chair or couch. The dogs share a bed and will welcome any cats to join them!

Please consider adding these lovely ladies to your family. **Applicants must be willing to travel to Ellicott City MD (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Dixie and Mabel. Their adoption fees are $150 each unless you are 60 and over. In that case the adoption fees are waived. **
