Barrow Patch has rolled out a new feature spotlighting local pets and the owners who love them.
To have your pet or pets featured, e-mail Patch contributor at email@example.com.
The Davis family of Winder are the proud owners of Winn "Dixie", a 6-year-old boxer mix.
The Davises rescued Dixie from an animal shelter five years ago. The family was worried since they didn't know her prior history, but she has been the absolute best decision they have ever made. They wouldn't trade her for the world.
"She has been a very important part of our life," Angie Davis said. "She is truly a super dog."
The most unique thing about Dixie is that she has an old soul. She acts like a second mother to her human siblings. Her favorite toy is anything squeaky. Her special skill is that she can jump a six-foot fence with no problem. Dixie enjoys table scraps from time to time, as a treat. As you can see from her pictures, she enjoys playing dress up.
Check back every Wednesday to meet more Barrow Patch Pets.
