Hello! My name is Windsor Charles, but my friends call me Winny or Winny C. or Winny Char Char or Winnypants or sometimes just Windsor. I am a 3 (maybe 4?) year old Chihuahua terrier mix with a quirky personality and a heart of gold. As much as I tried to be an urban jet-setter, I’ve realized life in the big city just isn’t for me. It’s much too busy and cramped for me to plant my roots. I’d really thrive in a more rural environment with room for me to grow and blossom! I’m ready to trade in scary Tri-met busses and loud construction for a nice backyard and maybe some calming crickets.

I’m in search of a nice lady over 40 who loves long walks on the beach and to hike and camp and enjoy nature as much as I do! I need to live in an OWNED home with a fenced yard and space for me to sniff, run and explore. An older sister or brother of the canine variety with the patience to show me the ropes and help me to build my confidence would be a dream come true, but I’m also fine just being an only dog. I really don’t care for puppies though, and kids make me nervous. Those bouncy little things are unpredictable! Men are pretty scary to me due to past trauma, but if they are willing to take the time and get on my level to gain my trust I will be cuddling up in no time.

Because of my rough beginnings I can be a pretty nervous guy. I’ll need to be in a calm environment with a big hearted person who is patient and willing to diligently work with me to overcome my anxiety triggers. I’m thinking this big ol’ world might not be so scary after all! I’ve conquered some of my most major fears already, so I know in the right environment, with the right person(s) I’ll continue to build confidence. Are you my person?

Hi, I’m Margie! I’m about 14 months old, 32 lbs, and a mix of jack russell, beagle, and foxhound/fox terrier. I’m extremely sweet and wacky, and get lots of laughs from the goofy faces I make and the speed at which I chase my own tail.

I’ve had an eventful life so far–I lived on the streets as a young puppy, was rescued, got hit by a car, and then had to stay cooped up in an apartment for a few months while I healed–so I’m ready to trade in city life for a more rural adventure. Which is perfect because my favorite thing is running around and playing in the grass with dog friends! I rarely get tired of wrestling with other dogs, chasing balls/frisbees/sticks, or just running around and biting wet grass! Because of my accident, it’s good to keep an eye on my leg to make sure I’m not limping.

I’m looking to be part of a home with a settled adult (or couple) who has the patience for a high-energy pup like myself, no children or plans for having children, and a more mature medium-sized dog who can play with me and help teach me how to be the best pup I can be. My ideal environment is a house with a big yard to play in. When the day’s excitement is over I’ll happily cuddle on the couch with you and probably fall asleep with my head on your feet.

I’m spayed, up to date on all my shots, and on monthly flea and heart worm medication. I can be a pretty anxious pup but with the right environment and patient, steady training I know that I can be calm and happy-plus there’s almost nothing I can’t do when treats are involved!

If you feel like you’re the right person for me, email Mario at

Teddy is at 15 year old medium hair cat. She is quiet and affectionate (the only cat I have met who NEVER tires of being petted), purrs readily, has comical quirks, loves to fetch a toy when we hide it for her, and is a wonderful lap kitty/companion. We never had another animal, but understand from Seattle Humane Society (from whom we adopted her in 2010) that she does better in a 1-cat adult home. She is healthy and proper weight for length (10 lb). She takes meds (felimazole) for hyperthyroidism. This is very easy if you crush the pill and mix it with a little Friskies pate and hot water. She thinks it is freshly killed mouse and begs for it. She has had occasional out of litter box incidents, and coughs up a hairball every week or so — mostly she behaves pretty well (if one can speak of behavior with regard to a cat!). We cannot keep her because my wife is finding it increasingly difficult to care for her when I am away, due to my wife’s disabilities.

Please email John at if you are interested in meeting her!

Demetri here — I’m the rolly-poly best friend you’ve been looking for! I am a 6 year old guy who is extremely loving and social with everyone! I’m your typical fat tabby cat and although I went through a lot of transitions with my former owner before he had to re-home me, I’ve been able to handle all the changes in my life with ease and nothing really seems to phase me. I’ve lived in a cattery with other cats before and don’t seem to have a problem with them or with dogs. I love getting petted and having my belly rubbed so I don’t think that rambunctious kids would be a problem for me either. The doctor says I’m over-weight but my recent bloodwork confirmed I don’t have any health issues. I just need to be kept on a healthy and portioned diet in order to make sure I lose weight and stay healthy. I’d say my chubbiness adds to my charm — don’t you think? I’m super excited to meet you, so come on over to Petco Unleashed on NW 23rd and Burnside to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Heads up! Pixie will be CLOSED Saturday, June 10th! It’s the Rose Festival Parade, which means it’s going to be impossible to get to Pixie. Our staff will take care of everything that day while the cats enjoy the parade, and we’ll be back to normal on Tuesday!

Hi everyone! My name is Jerry and I am a super cute Toy Poodle weighing in at about 10lbs. At 11 years young, I am quite the spunky guy and am very active with my daily walks. I even love to go hiking! I am the perfect little companion that would love to join you for all your daily activities. In fact, I love laying in laps and receiving all the attention, so let’s go to your office or hang out on the patio of your favorite restaurant. I even conveniently fit in the bike basket-ha! No matter what the adventure, I just like being near my people. Those cats and other dogs too!  You can always tell that I am a happy guy, as I always seem to have a smile on my face. It makes all the Pixie staff gush over my good looks! From my awesome cuddles to my happy prances on walks, I am an incredibly sweet and loyal guy who is ready to love and be loved in return! So put a smile on your face and make the world a better place by filling out an application for me today! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $300.

Rocking my way right into your heart, is me-Gemma! But you can call me Gem for short. I am 1 year old Rhodesian mix weighing in at 40lbs. You might have heard of my band Gem & the Holograms. We were climbing our way through the charts before we all got separated.  And to be honest, I just can’t do this solo style career. So I am looking for my next band of friends-either humans over 10, other pups, and those kitties too-to hit the stage with me once again! After being away from the limelight for so long, the city life is a bit overwhelming for me and having another doggy pal in an owned home located in a quiet neighborhood, would really help me settle and just really boost my confidence. I am just ready to rock, roll and sparkle once again! Fill out an application today, so we can set up an audition and see if we will be the next big thing! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Hello Hello! My name is Espresso and I am the cutest little 1.5-year-old, 8 lb Chihuahua mix you have ever seen! My name just fits me so perfectly! When we first meet, I may be a little slow and shy at first, but one shot of espresso and I am a fun little bundle of energy who loves to play! In fact, I absolutely LOVE romping around with my doggy pals. So much so that I would really enjoy having another pup at home to help boost my confidence and to let loose & really just have some fun! Even those kitties can join the party too! Since I can be socially sensitive in the beginning, I would need to be in an owned home with kids over the age of 10.  With patience and a few treats, you can instantly see that I am a dog that is ready to bond, to have fun, and at the end of the day–snuggle!! So make sure that you order your next coffee with a shot of ME!! Fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.
