Mila-1

IMG_7807

Hi! I’m Mila and I am a sweet 9 month old 30 lb cattle dog mix with a big heart! My favorite activities include going for long walks and playing with my squeaker toys! I am a super smart girl and learn very quickly, with the help of some yummy treats of course. I am even already crate trained! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION!  I was a bit shy when I first arrived here at Pixie, but after being in a foster, I really blossomed and just love to meet everyone. I would need to be in a home without kids or cats, but I just can’t wait to get in playgroups with my new doggy pals here. Did I mention I love to hike? I am a very sweet, intelligent gal with the energy to go for a long walk, but come home and snuggle on the couch after. Sound good to you too? Then fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi everyone! I am the gentle giant they call Banksy. I am a soft natured and extremely fun 60lb Great Dane mix.  I love the outdoors! I just can’t wait to go out and gallop in those wide open spaces. As you can see I don’t mind dipping my toes in the water, but that’s just about it. It’s too cold for me because I am all about being warm, including laying in those nice sunbeams! I like playing with other pups at the park, especially chase games. I also enjoy playing tug, but haven’t quite figured out this game you guys call “fetch”.  I am big investigator and love to sniff everything out. I am a very fast learning when it comes to my training as well! I would need to be in a home with no cats and kids over the age of 6. Ready to sniff out the next adventure with me? Then fill out an application today and we can set up a meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Bobbie-1Hi y’all! My name is Bobby and I am a 1 year old cattle dog mix coming to you all the way from Texas.  I love to boot, skoot and boogie with my doggie pals down on the farm at my foster home. My new friends have really helped me get used to the move to the big city. I love playing with them so much that I require another established doggy friend in the home with me. I am a quiet, sensitive guy who enjoys the great outdoors, including hiking and line dancing around the town. I am even quite the gentleman with cats! If you are ready to meet my handsome face and have another doggy pal I can romp and play with, go ahead and fill out an adoption application and send it to my friends at Pixie. I come to ya’ll fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and my adoption fee is $250.

Jewel 2 Jewel
-THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT! THIS IS A COURTESY POST; PLEASE EMAIL AMANDA OR DREW AT THE INFORMATION BELOW-
Meet Jewel:  She is an affectionate, 5 year old female Great Dane and Doberman mix, approximately 70 lbs. Her owner has terminal cancer and she needs an immediate new home or foster family.  She is very sweet and loving with lots of energy – she loves going on runs and runs well on a leash. She would do best with a fenced yard and consistent exercise. She was trained with a doggy door so she will need a similar situation or consistent potty breaks or else she tends to have accidents. She loves people and children and generally gets along well with other dogs. However, she likes to chase cats. Mostly, she is anxious and sad about her Dad being sick and needs lots of cuddles and love and reassurance that everything will be okay!
 
If you or someone you know is looking for a forever companion, please consider Jewel. You can reach us at amandafeaver@gmail.com and drewallyn.riley@gmail.com if you have any questions or are interested in meeting her!

duke and jettdukejett

– THESE DOGS ARE NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT  THOMAS OR CARA LAYNE AT EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –

Duke is a 10 year old 105lb Gordon Setter mix. He was a handsome guy, full of energy, playful, — and a lousy guard dog. He loves people, including children. Duke knows a few tricks and commands; he is quite intelligent. He is an easy walk on the leash. We farmed him out to a professional dog trainer for three months after we brought him home to corral some of his energy. Duke gets along quite well with other dogs. He thinks cats are playthings. Duke has a companion, Jett, a beautiful black female dog of unknown (to me) origin. She is about a year younger than Duke, and still has lots of energy. Jett likes people, including kids. She also is very intelligent, and responds to commands much as Duke does. One major difference with Duke: she is not cat-friendly! She has a very sweet disposition. She is a bit more free-ranging than is Duke, but she always comes back, especially when she knows I have a bit of dog bone for her. If she is off foraging somewhere when I am ready to take the dogs back home, she usually will come when called. Neither Duke nor Jett have much in the way of street sense. They just like to run. Both dogs are in good health. Duke had one major problem in 2015 in which a tumor was removed from his spleen. He has fully recovered, and has regained much of his old energy. Jett was hit by a car in that same year, but with no broken bones, she had a fast recovery and is in excellent health. Otherwise, both dogs always have been in excellent health. I want to find a caring, loving home for Duke and Jett. My first preference is a home in a rural setting where they have the opportunity to run free and without the fear of a nearby street or highway. A second choice would be to find a home for each of them, alone (and with the same need for space to run and be safe from cars). Jett is in more need, still, of being able to run off some energy, more so than is Duke. Both Duke and Jett have the capacity to touch your heart, as they have mine and my late wife. I hope you might see yourself open to take them in and give them and yourself that opportunity. If interested in these loving dogs, please contact Thomas Layne at tomuslayne@wavecable.com or Cara Layne at bug_n_yum@yahoo.com.

Edwin-TX-1

Are you seeing stars?! Nope, it’s just me, Edwin! Just like two other famous astronomers that share my name, I am a space explorer who enjoys sniffing around and discovering new things! I’m just a little 2 year old Chihuahua mix who loves a good lap to snuggle on, as we peek through the telescope together admiring the stars! I am a very social guy and really enjoy playing with my doggy pals here at Pixie after a long day’s work at the observatory. I am even ok with those things from another planet. What do you call them….oh yeah, cats! I prefer older sophisticated beings like myself, so I need to be in a home with kids ages 10 or up. Will you love me to moon and back?! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250. 3..2..1…BLAST OFF!

Paul-2Hi everyone! My name is Paul and I am a cute as a snug bug under a rug 4 month old terrier mix! Weighing in at only 12lbs, I may be little, but my personality is oh so BIG! I am a funny, entertaining guy whose underbite smile is enough to make anybody’s heart melt. When I am not tossing my toys up in the air or enjoying my daily afternoon walks, you can find me right next to your side snuggling the night away after a long day of fun! Even though I am small, I have a wonderful confidence about me as I trot along the city streets, looking for the next person to give me some love…and maybe a few treats too! I enjoy romping around with my puppy pals here at Pixie-both big and small. Being a puppy still, I do have some energy and bounces that would make me a best fit for kids 6 or older. And those furry felines, well I lived with one before and I am just a little too interested in them. But since I am young and very smart, and with the right training, I could easily learn to be their friend! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! Are you ready to have a ball?! Then fill out an application today and tell them you want to meet me, Paul! I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.
