Petey 2

Hello friends! The name is Petey, glad to meet ya! I’m 3 years old and my pals at The Pixie Project like to say I’m a Big Dog in a Small Dog body.  I’m not sure what that means, I feel like I’m perfectly sized!  At about 12 lbs you can stick me in the car and still have room for a picnic basket!  Yum! Maybe they mean I have a big personality – that’s the truth! I’ve got a true terrier spirit and I’m not afraid to take on the world!  I’m loyal, cuddling, and loving and will make a great companion!  Sometimes other dogs take my direct approach as rude, so I’m not a dog park dog and best in a home with bigger canine buddies. I do well with all people and could probably handle a dog-savvy cat (as long as they can handle me! I might try to play chase at the beginning).  I’ve got great energy and can certainly join all activities from hiking to movie night.  What do you say, am I the boy for you?  Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet. I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.

– THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT BETH AT THE EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –

llo! My name is Monkey and I am a handsome, boisterous young male Manx looking for my FOREVER home. I am playful and give head butts and love bites. I love to run and I am very quick with my hands on cat nip toys or feathered things, my favorites! I can get over stimulated and stressed out around other pets or children. My foster mom has other pets and this is not working out so we are searching for just the right person to care for me. My forever home needs to be indoors only with a kind, cat-savvy adult – no other furry pets or kids allowed, please. I am up to date with all vaccinations, I have tested negative for FIV/FELV, and I have been neutered – whatever that means! Please email pdxbeth07@gmail.com if you think we could be best friends.

Heitzing

– THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT LESLIE AT EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –

My husband got a job with the State Dept so we are moving overseas late May/early June…I’m looking for a home for my dog, Hietzing as soon as possible to make sure it is a good fit. She is an older (11 or 12), stocky mini pin (20 lbs). She loves her family and ignores cats and other dogs (if they ignore her). She will sleep in your bed if you say it’s ok and will curl up next to you on the couch.

We got her six years ago from the Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals, and she’s been a great addition to our family. Because we are moving overseas, we think she will not do well. She is quite the homebody and does not like riding in cars and travelling to new places. Due to the entire bag of grapes she ate in 2012, she has developed anxiety and some bladder problems. When we leave her at home for long periods of time, we put a doggie diaper on her because she seems to be unable to hold her pee for long period of time (overnight she is fine).

We think she would be perfect company for an older person who doesn’t travel a lot or a person who works from home. We currently walk her two (10 minute) walks per day and put her out for a pee when she stands by the door.

She doesn’t really bark, but will do so when a person comes to the door or if she sees a dog in the window.

We really want to find someone who will love her as much as we do.

I can be reached at 503-810-7877 or leslie@solomonster.org.

George

– THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT BROOKE AT THE EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –

George is a nine year old cat who loves to explore, play, and cuddle. “Curious George” has been a nickname of his since he was a kitten. As of late, he loves to have outside time (he’s been primarily an indoor cat most of his life) on our deck and he pops over to our neighbor’s garden when he needs some peace and quiet. Since the arrival of toddlers to our home peace and quiet is something he has been craving a bit more of. He keeps himself endlessly entertained with running and jumping around most of the time and  tuckers himself out with all that exercise which leaves him to spend the rest of his days cuddled up in your lap or in a large ray of sunshine. He’s smart and social, making him an excellent addition to any home. George has lived with a black lab for seven years but hasn’t had too much exposure to other cats. For more information contact Brooke at brooke.dc@gmail.com.

SID

Sid77

– THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT DINAH AT EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –

You see you wouldn’t ask why the rose that grew from the concrete had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its tenacity. We would all love its will to reach the sun. Well, we are the rose – this is the concrete – and these are my damaged petals.” ― Tupac Shakur, The Rose That Grew from Concrete

We would like to introduce Sid, a 4-5 year old 50 lb. hound mix who arrived in Portland from Kaua`i on Christmas Eve in search of his forever home. One look at Sid and it is apparent his life had been rough. His tail was crudely cut off and two deep scars around his neck are evidence of a life on a chain. Sid, who likes to go as Sidn’t Vicious, does not let his rough beginnings get him down, and thinks his scars make him rather edgy and cool.  He loves affection from humans and would make a faithful companion who would be happy to accompany you on walks, jogs, and hikes.  Sid is residing at Dogtribe Doggy Daycare where he has met all sorts of dogs…he does particularly well with females and mellow boys.  He is very smart and enjoys obstacle courses and would love to try lure coursing.  Sid was most likely used as a hunting dog prior to his rescue, so we do not recommend him cohabitating with cats or other small animals.  Just one look into his soulful eyes, and you will see that Sid wants to please.  He knows basic obedience commands- heel, sit, down, place- and has had positive interactions with the other dogs in boarding.  He is neutered and current on his vaccinations. Sid is a rose who has risen from the concrete; we celebrate his tenacity to live and love humans despite his difficult beginnings.  For more information about Sid, please contact Dinah at dinahchao@gmail.com or call Toni at Dogtribe 503-238-0737.  Sidn’t Vicious would love to meet you!

Rhonda 1

Are you looking for a dog that is really in need of comfort and some TLC?  I’m Rhonda a very sweet 1 1/2 year old Pit mix who is sensitive. There isn’t a mean bone in my body, and I do great with other animals.  In fact, having a canine friend will really help me out of my shell and having a doggy companion is mandatory for my successful adoption.  Once I blossom in my new home I’m a fun loving, zoom around the yard, affectionate kind of girl! I love to play ball, so a home with a backyard would be ideal. After a few rounds of fetch I know we will become great friends! Because of my breed it’s best that I go into an owned home, and since I do need extra help and patience gaining my confidence I prefer a home with older kids.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250 and I’m currently living in foster care.

Adoption Policy Change for 2016: Pixie will continue to collect the full adoption fee for dogs after the completion of a two-week trial, but starting January first, Pixie will require a $100 deposit from adopters when the dog is taken home. This $100 is not refundable and helps to provide the behavior assessments, any necessary veterinary care, and personalized adoption services, and will be applied towards your adoption fee.
