Ben shihtzu 1

Hello there!  I’m Ol’ Ben the good natured 12 year old Shih Tzu who would love to sit in the sunshine with a cup of tea and tell you stories about when I was your age.  Call me old fashioned, but I still believe in politeness and manners, that’s the best way to make friends after all!  These skills have made me many friends and I get a long great with other animals and all people.  I may not be able to reach top speeds anymore, but I’m great for a mosey around the park or a couple of laps in the backyard.  I’ve had quite a remarkable life, want to hear all about it?  SEnd in your adoption application so we can schedule a meet!  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $100.

Hi friends, I’m Diesel! I may have a tough guy’s name, but I’m actually a girl that is as sweet as ice cream on a hot day! As a 50 lb middle-aged Lab mix (I’m about 7 years young) you can bet your bottom dollar that I am the quintessential family pooch.  I’m great with dogs and cats and perfect with kids!  My all-inclusive nature means you can take me anywhere  – beaching, biking, badmintoning, I’m game for any adventure! Since I am such a family-oriented gal I do prefer a home where people are home most of the day.  I’m super well trained, and don’t have separation anxiety, I’m just a tad sensitive and a girl can get lonely by herself on a 10 hour work day, you know?  Do I sound like the perfect company for your home?  Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.  I am currently in foster care.

Once upon there was a beautiful princess named Rags.  She was beloved by all who knew her as she was the kindest Shih Tzu in all the land.  Then one day Rags got too far from home!  Her hair grew out and you could barely recognize her, but she remained friendly and sweet. She found her way to The Pixie Project where she was groomed and pampered.  They all exclaimed how amazing she was! Perfect manners, perfect with other dogs and a perfect companion for any family. Now at 9 years young Rags awaits the rest of her story.   Are you the one to turns Rags into riches?  Can you be her happy ending?  Send in your adoption application so the rest of the story can unfold!  Rags is fixed, chipped and vaccinated.  Her adoption fee is $180.


Tinman?  More like GRINman!!  Hahaha! I am one happy-go-lucky Dachshund mix that always has something to smile about.   I love everyone kids, dogs, cats, tigers, lions, and bears, oh my!  My affectionate personality just has no end.  Since I am just a youngster at 8 months old it is important that I attend puppy classes to further my super star skills.  Do I sound like the friendly character your life has been missing?  Fill out an adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.
