Welcome Home Dixie

We would love to take the time to welcome the newest member of the Newhouse Family team… Dixie!

Dixie is a 13 week old Greyhound X Saluki Longdog/Lurcher, and she is absolutely beautiful. She has been with us for 5 days and has fit into our family perfectly.

We had been thinking of getting another dog for a little while (even more so since our burglary 2 weeks ago) but we were waiting for the right dog to find us. I was talking to a friend about our Lurcher, Joe-Boy, who we lost 12 years ago. I went online to find a picture of a lurcher who looked similar, when the advert for Dixie popped up. Her beauty caught my eye, so I clicked on the ad.

It turned out that she was just 16 miles down the road. I threw a glance at my husband who gave a nod of approval, so I messaged the seller. 3 hours later she was in my lounge, smothering us all with kisses.

My dear old Joe-Boy (top) and Dixie (bottom) both Greyhound x Saluki’s.

She has made the best of friends with Scrapper and the kids. She came from a house of 5 children, so we knew she would be happy with the constant ‘buzz’ of our home.

Her training is going well (to be fair she had a good head start as her previous owner’s mum is a dog trainer) and she is a delight to be around… and gives great leggy cuddles!
