Look deeply into my eyes-how can you resist? Hi everyone. My name is Gavin and I am handsome 6 year old Chihuahua mix who will steal your heart. I am a bit of a shy guy, but all you have to do is sit down and I will crawl into your lap and snuggle the night away! I enjoy meeting new doggy pals and I am ok with cats too! Since I am a sensitive guy, I will need to be in a home without kids. My ideal date would be someone who can give me lots of love and snuggles. And maybe even a few treats too! Netflix and chill anyone? Fill out an application today and we can schedule our first date. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Gypsy 2

Greetings friend!  I’m Gypsy, a little lady so sweet that I could easily be mistaken for candy and find myself in a heart shaped box with a red bow on it. My goal in life is to quit this wandering gypsy life and settle down once and for all! Are you the one for me?!
I am an 8 year old, well-mannered 12 pound Chihuahua mix with a foxy face and a curly tail.  I am a little nervous through transitions and am looking for a patient and calm home. As an older and also wiser girl, I have ladylike manners and am well house trained. I watch my figure, so I love a good walk. I have also recently received a dental so my teeth are spic and span!
I also appreciate the finer things in life: bone china, belly rubs, and a good nap.  I am happy to lie beside you while you post flattering photos of us on Facebook.
While my foster mom and dad say that I’m an Olympic level snuggle bug with everyone I meet,  I am most comfortable having a nice lady in my family, however I am becoming more and more comfortable with the gentleman folk too.
So be a dear and fill out an application. Email it or bring it in to The Pixie Project quick as a wink! I look forward to planning our future days together. Whether it’s a book by the fire or a quite stroll down the block, it matters not so long as we are together.
I come spayed, chipped, and vaccinated, and my adoption fee is $200. I am currently in foster care.

Belly 3
Howdy folks! My name is Belly, a lovely 7 year old female chihuahua who came to you all the way from Texas! I am a sweet, bouncy, sensitive little lady waiting for a warm lap to snuggle on! I would do well with other small dogs, cats and children 10 and up. I can’t wait to go on strolls around the neighborhood and cuddle up next to you on the couch with a warm drink and soft blanket. I will require some training because I do enjoy barking at other dogs while on leash, even though I love them, I just have to bark at them! I am fixed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and my fee is $250. Can’t resist this cute face? Go ahead and fill out an adoption application and send it over to Pixie so you can meet me!

Hi All!!  I’m Jasper, a shy sweet, long haired chihuahua mix. At two years young, I’m quite excitable.  A little too excitable to be in a house with kids or a lot of commotion. I need a quiet and patient home to relax in. And time and space to get comfortable. But I love snuggles, other dogs, cats and…did I mention snuggles?  I’m lap dog extraordinaire. I can be a bit nervous at first but with a little patience I’ll cuddle right up into your heart and lap. Please come on down and let me love you.  But first, fill out an adoption application so we can set a time to meet! I come to you fixed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. My adoption fee is $250.

Poppy 1poppya


Hi everyone, my name is Poppy and I am a 1 year old pugeenie (pug/dachshund mix). After losing my home, I wandered from porch to porch in my neighborhood just hoping that someone would take me in. After several weeks, I was spotted by a good Samaritan who took me in, got me fixed up and brought me to the Pixie Project. Here, I have blossomed into a sweet and cuddly pooch and am ready to go into a loving home. I would do well in a home with other dogs, cats and children 10 years old and older. Since I am still getting used to being left alone, I would do best living in a house rather than an apartment. I come spayed, vaccinated and have an adoption fee of $250. If you are interested in meeting me, please submit an application and contact my friends here at Pixie to set up an appointment.

Hey there! My name is Twyla and I’m the sweetest little Chiweenie (Dachshund Chihuahua mix) baby who can’t wait to climb right into your lap and gaze at you with these big brown doe eyes of mine! I’m a young lady who’s probably around 1 or 2 years old and 7lbs with a bit of a rough and mysterious past, which means I can be a little uncertain and timid of my surroundings and would like to only live with adults please. I’m your typical adorable chihuahua princess who bonds deeply with “my people (or person)” and will be your happy and adoring shadow. I can be a little shy of strangers at first, but warm up after I feel safe. I also just so happen to have super cute big floppy dachshund ears and a long body that can really give a noodle a run for it’s money with my ecstatic wiggle. My foster mom found me in the woods scared and alone, where I had been abandoned after being used for making puppies (I’m spayed now, thanks!). Sometimes I miss my puppies and one of my endearing habits is to collect toys or small objects I find comforting and bring them to bed to sleep with me when I am feeling lonely. Even though I didn’t know very many basic commands when my foster mom found me, I learned really fast and am so eager to please that now I am fantastic at my “sit” and always come when called. I am also great on a leash – I love to go on walks! – and completely house trained. Although I am initially scared of other dogs, I absolutely LOVE my big foster dog sister, she really gives me the boost I need to feel comfortable in my new city life, and would love to go to a home with a confident and mellow dog friend who I can emulate and also *hopefully* curl up and fall asleep with under the covers while giving them lots of kisses (my favorite!). I am so fun with all of that cute puppy energy everybody loves! As a spectacular jumper, I promise to give you a show each time you come home as I wiggle and jump with glee to see you again! Then we can curl up on the couch together for some R&R or sit in the sun together to work on our tans, but really I’ll be happy anywhere as long as I get to be with you! Contact:

Zeke-1Hi everyone! My name is Zeke or as some folks at Pixie have nicknamed me, Beethoven! Not only do I make beautiful music, but I am also deaf! But being deaf doesn’t stop me from loving life. I am an 8 month old Great Dane mix who loves everyone I meet, including kitties, other dogs, and kids of all ages. I even have already started on some of my sign language training. So far I know “Sit!” and “Down”, but would love it if someone could teach me some more. If you are interested in making some music with me, fill out an application today so we can meet! I come neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and have an adoption fee of $250.
