As newspapers around the country furlough their employees hours, that means less journalism at a time when staying connected at the local level is important.

Dixie, the five-year-old Chiweenie, is missing and was last seen in Racine near South and Saint Clair streets and her owners miss her terribly.

She was last seen on Thursday. She has short brown and tan hair and weighs under 20 pounds. A Chiweenie is a cross between a Chihuahua and the Dachshund.

“Dixie is a friendly dog but will bark at everyone and every animal she sees. She does seem fearful of men. She will bark but is NOT aggressive. She was lost in an unfamiliar area,” according to her owners.

If you see her, please call (414) 708-8713.
