Nanna & Dixie - Have Been Adopted



Are you looking for a couple of really nice sheepdogs. Dogs that are happy and want to be WITH you? Nanna and Dixie are two senior girls looking for a home where they spend their golden years.

Nanna is 11 years old and weighs about 80 pounds. She is a spunky, very friendly girl that that is friendly to everyone and LOVES to give kisses.

Dixie is 11 years old and weighs 60 pounds. Now that she is shaved down she can hold her head up with everyone else (unfortunately her fur was soooo matted when she came to NEOESR, that her head was matted to her chest.). Dixie is a happy girl that likes to hear you talk.

Both girls are house trained and ride well in the car. Leashes....well....they could use a refresher course.

These two girls have been together their entire life and we would like to place them together. Please contact if you can open your home to Nanna and Dixie. They can be seen in Southington, CT

We often have dogs that for one reason or another we choose not to put up on the site. The adoption situation can change daily! As your first step, PLEASE fill out the adoption application form at: (copy/paste this link into your browser). If you have not updated your application recently, it might be a good idea to do so. We prefer to hear from you by email, and thank you for your patience.Thank you for looking at rescue instead of purchasing a puppy and unwittingly giving your money to back yard breeders or puppy mills. For more information on where to get a puppy from a reputable breeder, please contact NEOESR’s placement director at or check (copy/paste this link into your browser) at the Old English Sheepdog of America website.

Remember, there are dogs in New England, other than those shown, needing homes.  And be sure to check out our Courtesy Listings.
