|~ Dixie to Cash|
Dixie is the main villain in the 2006 film The Fox and the Hound 2.
Dixie and Cash were the lead singers of the Singin' Strays dog group at the fair, but Dixie's snappy, bossy attitude put off the other members, except for Cash, who usually tried to reason with her. After having an argument with Cash, she told them all she was leaving the band. Even if she was only having a fit, they knew she wouldn't appear for the show and had to come with a solution ASAP. After she left, they decided to go on without her, but Copper decided to sing along and his performance left the audience and the band members in awe. This led Cash to ask him if he wanted to join the band with the dog's word that he was a stray.
Dixie was angry at Cash for taking this decision and felt she had been replaced, Cash told her not to be angry but the jealous dog tried whatever she could to sabotage the puppy, including feeding him peanut butter to get a sticky mouth and being unable to sing. After having promised Tod, his fox friend, that they would both watch the fireworks show together and the pup not having been able to do so due to the Strays' continous singing practices for the fair's show, the fox started to feel that his friend had abandoned him. This made Tod a perfect target for Dixie's manipulation schemes so she tried to sympathize with him and make use of his anger to have the hound fired from the group. She came up with the perfect plan when the fox told her that the dog was not a stray; a detail which alone, could get the dog to be kicked out of the Singin' Strays. She also got Tod to bring Amos Slade, the dog's owner, to pick him up. Since Slade had always tried to hunt down Tod, he was the perfect bait to carry out this, instead, the chase got too much for Tod to handle and it ended up ruining the whole Strays show.
