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.

darwin-1Hi there! My name is Darwin and I am a handsome 1 year old, 45 lb Ridgeback mix! Just like the scientist for which I am named, I am inquisitive and always on the look out for new discoveries! I have a great medium energy and would love to go for daily walks or have some ball time in the yard! I am very affectionate and would love to curl on the couch with you after a long day of discovery. I am still getting used to the city life and would enjoy a low key atmosphere with kids over the age of 14, and lots of space in a home owned by my adopters. My foster mom says I am doing great with their cat! Dogs are fun too and I would prefer to be with one as chill as me, as dog parks and puppy energy can be a little overwhelming for me. Overall, I am a handsome, fun, and inquisitive guy ready to learn more about the world! Are you ready to discover how much your world would be better with me in it?! Then fill out an application, so we can meet and see how my cute face is all the evidence you need! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Tina-TX-1IMG_0494 (3)

Did you know that Tina in Latin means “little one”?  It also represents someone who is independent, bold, and intellectual. Welp, that name just fits me perfectly! Hi everyone!

I am always happy to go on walks and meet new people.  I enjoy the company of older kids past the age of 10 and don’t mind hanging with those other canines and felines as well! Even though I am just a petite girl, I am ready to take on this BIG world.  Would you want to take me on your next adventure? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed. vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Julia-TX-1

Do you smell that yummy meal on the stove that I am cooking? Ok, so I may not cook as well as Julia Child, but we DO share a first name and a love of food! My name is Julia and I am a cute little 2 year old Chihuahua mix. Hailing all the way from Texas, my Southern cooking is not nearly as sweet and delicious as my personality! I am lovely lady who enjoys hanging with my my doggy pals, kids over the age of 10, and even those furry felines as well! Are you hungry for some of my lovin’ and cuddles? Then fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

asher-rf_4514

I am Asher — the beautiful grey/blue boy with striking greenish-yellow eyes.  I just love to get gentle attention and will instantly purr whenever someone takes the time to greet me and give me pets.  So far, with lots of love and patience from the people at Pixie, I’m really starting to show my great purrsonality and I’m ready to find my forever home! Are you interested in a calm older gentleman like myself to keep you company? I am in foster, so please fill out your application and Pixie will contact you to set up a meet and greet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

benjamin-1 img_2282 img_2275Hello! My name is Benjamin and I am as cute as a button 4 year old, 12lb Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix! I am very affectionate and cuddly guy looking for that special person to snuggle up with and watch some Netflix. I am a pup that is ready to bond and even though I can be shy at first, with a little time and lots of treats, I will open up and become your new best friend! My foster mom says I do great with the resident cat and that my favorite thing, besides snuggly on the couch watching movies, is to sleep in the hammock in the back yard. Since I am more of a couch potato sort of guy, I would do best in a low traffic home with no kids that is owned by my adopters. While meeting other dogs, I can be somewhat shy at first, but wouldn’t mind having another companion around! So fill out an application, grab the popcorn and the blankets, and let our movie snugglefest begin! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
