Hello! My name is Elfie and you guessed it- I am one of Santa’s little helpers! But this year, I am hoping I can be the one who is surprised with a present-my new home! I am a super adorable and tiny 1 year old Chihuahua weighing in around 7lbs.  I am very playful and fun gal! Though I do like to chase those awesome squeaky toys, I am not one for fetch. I think I just love chase games in general because that is my favorite thing to do with my puppy pals too! Run around the play yard, stop, play bow, and then off again. I could go on for days! Just kidding. I would miss out on my other favorite thing: affection! In fact, I will even solicit pets by pushing my face into your hand. Kind of like those kitties! Did I mention they could join our party too? Since I am a little elf in a big world, I can sometimes be a little timid and would need to be in a home with kids 12 and up. Sweet, sensitive, fun, and playful, I am a definite bringer of joy and cheer! So fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

My name is Jasper and I am a super cute 2 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix. I mean, look at those ears, right? At 12lbs, my life motto is “can’t stop, won’t stop”, as I am a little ball of energy ready who is ready to play! I am currently enjoying romping around my foster’s big yard with her other doggy friends my size. We just have a blast and I could play all day. With my human pals over 12, I really enjoy playing fetch with both balls and squeaker toys alike. But I must admit those squeakers are my favorite. I am little too interested in those kitties, so none in my home please! I don’t consider myself a city boy and can be a little sensitive sometimes. So I would much prefer a quieter neighborhood in a home owned by my adopters. After a long day of activity and fun, it’s straight in your lap for some cuddle time! Are you ready to play today? Then fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Chocolate chip, mint, gingersnap-what’s your favorite cookie? Well the answer is obvious; it’s me of course! I am a 1 year old Shih Tzu mix weighing in at 13lbs. Though my origins are a mystery, you can tell I never had the chance to play with the other kids or really explore the world. So new situations and people are pretty overwhelming and can be a bit scary. With a few hotdogs and some time, I eventually warm up and ready to play play play! In fact, the Pixie staff say I really enjoy playing with toys. Just haven’t quite figured out the fetch part quite yet, but you could teach me! I do have some doggy friends here at Pixie and really need a playmate that suites my energy level. I can be quite wiggle worm, you know! With all the newness here, I am really just wanting some rest and relaxation out of the shelter. I am looking for an experienced sensitive dog foster or adopter who will be committed to my training to gain more confidence! I need a low traffic adult only owned home with no kids or cats. Fill out a foster or adoption application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, micro-chipped, and vaccinated for an adoption fee of $350.

Hello!  My name is Gracie.  I’m a 9-year-old pit bull and I like warm hugs, walks, hikes, and being with my family and animal friends.  I really want nothing more than to be snuggled in your lap or as close to you as I can get so you can scratch my ears and rub my belly; they say I’m too big to be a lap dog, but I respectfully disagree.  I like to run around in the great outdoors too.  Honestly, I could care less about fetching a ball or a stick but I’ll run back and forth between a couple of my friends forever.  Right now I live with two little kids (ages 3 and 4) and a cat.  I get along with them great but they have to be gone a lot for work and preschool and that means I’m all alone…which I really don’t like.  Like, really.  So, we all talked about it and agreed that I should find a home with some other dogs so I don’t get so nervous and lonely.  I’m such a sweet girl with my family and friends – when I go to the dog sitter’s or the dog park I have so much fun with the other puppies, and when I’m with the other dogs I feel nice and calm even if my people aren’t around.  Because of my separation anxiety and my tendency to get worked up and chew my way out of things when I’m alone, I must go to a home with other dogs and a family that understands me. If you are interested in bringing me into your home, please contact Paul at

Hi, I’m Ariel. I get along with most of the species on this planet but humans are my favorite. I’m about 8 years old and healthy. Socializing and hanging out with my two human brothers is so fun. Sadly, a boy in my family tested to be allergic to cats, and they’re looking for a loving caring home for me. They’re a bit worried because I’m on a prescription diet for a sensitive stomach but I’m encouraging them to try to find me a home, for I know my sweetness surpasses my condition. Anyone who’s interested in helping me, please contact Kate ASAP. or 541-250-9004 Hope to see you soon. Ariel.

The name is Corky Romano and I am a 2-year-old Min-Pin/Terrier mix weighing in at around 12lbs. Though I seem like a tough little guy, I really am such a softy with a funny personality. Just like my movie counterpart! Though I am not in the business of going undercover and busting bad guys, I am in the business of stealing hearts-like yours! With my quirky antics, I am sure to keep you entertained for days as we play and snuggle the day away. Downtown is a bit overwhelming for me and I would prefer a much quieter neighborhood. Though I am not a big player with other dogs, I don’t mind hanging with another mellow pup. And those kitties? Well I am in a foster with some right now and I don’t mind a bit! I am a very quick learner and very food motivated which makes training me not only fun but very rewarding-for the both of us! So fill out an application today and we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $300.

Hello! How do you do? My name is Sally, though most people like to call me Sally O’ Mally. It’s cute and it rhymes, so why not?! I am a 7 year old Shih Tzu mix at 9lbs, with the cutest little underbite you have ever seen! When it comes to this gal, I am all about the outdoors. My foster mom says I would stay out there for hours if I could. I would be an excellent morning walk companion and even a nice little hike in Forest Park would be perfect too! Not up for going out today? Well, no worries as I also really enjoy playing fetch! Even if the tennis ball doesn’t quite fit in my mouth, I enjoy chasing it around. After all the activity, I am quite the snuggle bug and loving sitting on your lap. I love to have all the attention on me, so even though another doggy in the home would be ok, I just would really enjoy having all your love to myself! Thus, I need to be in an adult only home with no kitties. But that just means you get to be the star of my show and get to have all my cuddles to yourself! Sweet, adorable, and full of love, I am ready to share it all with you. So fill out an application today and we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an up to date dental with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello there, I’m Alice! I’m a long haired grey tabby who’s full of energy and love! My current humans have had me for 8 years and I was full grown when they met me but it’s time for me to move on.  I’ve gotten a little overweight in the last year because I’ve been hiding in the basement from their fast and scary new dog..the old little dog and I got along really well, but I don’t trust the new guy..He chased me up a tree!!

I’m a little shy when I first meet new people, but once I get to know you, I’ll sit and snuggle for days!

It’s important that I stay on flea prevention because they give me dermatitis, otherwise I just went to the vet and everything was great…well they did keep calling me chubby but they’re not wrong:)  Call or text my friend Kevin at 5oh3-894-oh716 and we can schedule a meeting!
