Hi everyone! My name is Ginger and I am sweet little 1 year old Chihuahua mix who would just love to be the center of your world. I am definitely a small town girl living in the big city and am still trying to get used to  all the new sights and sounds. I am a very sensitive lady and am looking for a low key and quiet environment with no kids and with someone who is patient, understanding and most importantly-very loving. After a little bit of time and a lot of treats, I would love to be attached to your side with lots of cuddles.  This means I would do best with someone who can stay with me most of the day. So worth it, for I have so much love to give! I like to go for walks, but then get worn out after a half a block or so and then it’s snuggle time on the couch! I am very smart, learn very quickly, and am highly treat motivated. I am potty trained and know how to “come” and “sit”. My foster says I am very playful, but really just love a warm lap. If you think you have the perfect lap for me, then fill out an application today so we can meet! I come to you spay, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi All!!  I’m Jasper, a shy, but sweet 2 year old long haired chihuahua mix. I’m a bit of a sensitive guy and really need someone with time & patience to help me come out of my shell. But it is so worth it because once I do, I am quite the energetic and entertaining guy! Because of my socially sensitivities, I need to be with someone who owns their home and has a lot of space, as apartments in the city are just a little too overwhelming for me. Also, I need to be in a home that is quiet and low key without kids. But I do enjoy hanging with my other furry dogs friends and those fluffy felines as well! And boy do I love to snuggle! And I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi everyone! My name is Ryder and I am just a cute little Chihuahua mix who only wants lots of love and snuggles. This city is big and is full of lots of scary things and sounds. I’m still trying to process it all, so a quiet low-key environment would be ideal for me. I am sensitive, but with a little patience and some treats, I will curl into your lap in no time. Since I am such a shy guy, I need to be in a home without kids. I do enjoy playing with some doggy pals here at Pixie, but I would just LOVE to have you all to myself. My ideal day would include snuggles, cuddles, and more snuggles! Does this sound like your perfect day too? Then fill out an application today and we can schedule a meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Gloria5-16_1It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s me, Gloria the Magnificent! Just spend a few moments with me and I will fly right into your heart. I am a 6 year old bulldog/pit bull mix who’s tough exterior masks my BIG heart and all I really want is someone to sit back, relax, and cuddle with! I am a rock star in my play groups with my dog pals and I love people of all ages! No cats in my home though please! And do you know what I would love more than anything? To be with someone in a low key rural environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and to romp around with some doggy pals! Due to rental property breed restrictions, I will require a home that is owned by my new adopters! So come one, come all and meet this cute pit-o-ppotamus! But first, fill out an adoption application so we can set a time to meet! I come to you fixed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $250.

Daisy is a world traveling, 6.5 year old, 57 pound Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix. She is a Gemini, originally from Western Australia, and has a goofy-sweet personality. Daisy is energetic and needs her exercise. She’s house broken, well-mannered, and obedience trained. Will only get on the furniture if invited and it is covered with a blanket. Appreciates a sweater in cold weather and likes to be covered with a towel. She’s spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations.

Favorite activities: Snuggling, playing fetch with a human using a ball flinger, sunbathing (she’s a true blue Aussie), chewing on sticks and antlers, continuing her obsession with squeaky Kong tennis balls, kissing on humans, rolling, riding shotgun, waking up next to a human, long walks on the beach, and swimming
Commands she knows: sit, stay, down, leave it, come, up, off, slow, wait, paw (Aussie version of shake), back up, back seat, let’s cross(the street), gentle and probably many more that I am just not recalling now. She is extremely smart, sensitive, and learns very quickly.

Cats: needs a cat free home (she is a cat chaser)

Dogs: Would be best as an only dog in the home.
As far as dog friends in a social setting, she prefers smaller, polite, gentle dogs with good social skills. She appears to simply enjoy being in the company of other dogs. I have seen her run and lightly play with dogs slightly smaller than her size. I have never seen her play rough or tackle another dog. She seems to enjoy playing fetch with a human much more than playing with other dogs. Daisy needs slow, one-on-one introductions to other dogs, supervised by humans that clearly understand dog behavior, particularly staffy behavior. She gets nervous around dogs that are larger than she is and barking or hyper dogs are overwhelming for her, so keeping her safe from dog parks is best.

Children: I don’t have any experience of Daisy living in a household with kids, but she seems to enjoy respectful children, though sometimes forgets her size and strength. I’d think she’d probably be best with kids maybe age 7 and up.

She is very fearful of thunderstorms and fireworks, so proper care should be taken in providing her a safe area indoors away from these noises.

She is athletic and can be a jumper, so should not be left outdoors. She prefers to be indoors with humans (if she had her choice, all the time) and is very well behaved.

If you are interested in meeting her, contact Jo at

I’m currently living in the Portland area. I can and will make a meet and greet happen if you’d like.

Hello friends! My name is Sissy and I’m sweet, quiet kind of gal. They call me Sissy because I came in with my mom and two brothers. I’m looking for a home where I can stretch my legs and get a break from spending so much time with my family, you know? I  like having someone to snuggle with from time to time, but enjoy my own space hanging out on the scratching post. Otherwise, I like to hang out in a soft cozy bed, get head scratches, and read books by the fire or in the sunshine. Does this sound alright with you? Maybe we could find a new hobby together, like baking or knitting, or planting a garden? I’m happy to just hang out, whatever you are doing! I’m about 6 years old and spayed. I am fixed, microchipped and vaccinated – my adoption fee is $100. I’m currently at a foster home, so fill out an application and contact Pixie to arrange a meeting with me.

http://12987915_10207357940004644_2080077005_nDo you like to sit on the couch and eat cookies and ice cream and watch tv? You do?! So do I! My name is Cinder and I look like an Oreo cookie, which is just fine with me because I’m so sweet. I’m a little shy when I first meet you, but once I get a chance to hang out with you on the couch, I’m all love and cuddles and absolutely adore belly rubs. I’ll even let you trim my toe nails after a good belly rub. Have a cat-savvy dog? Even better! I think dogs are pretty cool, and don’t mind other cats either. I’m not too sure about kids yet, but if your kids like and respect cats, they I’ll probably like them too. I’m about 8 years old,  spayed, up to date on shots and good to go. So, are you up for a movie and cuddles this weekend? I am fixed, microchipped and vaccinated – my adoption fee is $100.  I’m in foster right now, so email to schedule a meet and greet!
