My Rescues, Dax & Dixie


Meet Dax & Dixie:

These are my Border Terriers Brother/Sister combo I rescued following the Passing of my first Border Terrier, Trixie.  They were found roaming the streets of Coco Beach, Florida during an outbreak of Rabies.  They had to first be sheltered for 90 days before going into a foster home in Mims, Florida.

I was only looking for one rescue dog some seven weeks after I had to put Trixie down(Please see the Tribute to Trixie page).
But when I got to the foster home and saw that they were siblings and had been through so much together, I couldn’t separate them and take the chance that someone else would take both of them.  So on Valentines day 2019, I took them both home and since there was no official paperwork, I made Valentine’s day their official date of birth as they were about 1 year old at the time they were rescued.

This is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made because as I have observed them these past 2+ years this tandem absolutely loves one another and it was not meant for them to ever be separated.
