Bix was a beautiful black German shepherd with tan paws that I adopted from Magnificent Mutts on April 27, 2011. He was my wonderful companion for six years, until April 3, 2017, when I had to put him to sleep. He was 9+ years old. A man of mystery, because we don’t know what his story was as a stray from Kentucky, he would bark happily at horses (imagine that!), loved to go for walks and runs, and loved the lakes of the Wisconsin Northwoods. Not bad at all! He was smart, affectionate, and loved BBQ’d salmon. He was my first rescue dog, and I’d adopt another one again from Magnificent Mutts. Thank you for helping match homeless dogs with caring humans.
