Hi everyone! My name is Ryder and I am just a cute little Chihuahua mix who only wants lots of love and snuggles. This city is big and is full of lots of scary things and sounds. I’m still trying to process it all, so a quiet low-key environment would be ideal for me. I am sensitive, but with a little patience and some treats, I will curl into your lap in no time. Since I am such a shy guy, I need to be in a home without kids. I do enjoy playing with some doggy pals here at Pixie, but I would just LOVE to have you all to myself. My ideal day would include snuggles, cuddles, and more snuggles! Does this sound like your perfect day too? Then fill out an application today and we can schedule a meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hello world! My name is Froggy the doggy! I am sweet, sensitive young lad who is still getting the hang of this city slicker life. At just 6 months old, I am still learning about the world and I am looking for someone with lots of time and patience to really focus on my training to be the well mannered pup I am going to grow up to be! PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! Since I am a bit sensitive, I need to be in a home without kids or cats and would do best in a home with a lot of space or fenced in yard, so I can not only burn off some energy, but to help me get settled in.  My play style comes off a bit confusing to other pups, but I am still learning and wouldn’t mind being with another doggy pal. But boy do I love to run! I have even been training with a Pixie team member to jog right by their side and I am doing great! When I get back in from a run, I immediately pick up my teddy bear and snuggle up with it. If you are looking for a pup with good snuggling abilities and are a confident experienced dog owner that has the time to focus on my training, then fill out an application today so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi friends! My name is Rae Rae and I am a cute 1 year old 10lb Shiba Inu mix.  Just like the great Shib Inu, I am a spirited, bold, and beautiful guy with a love for cuddling and treats. I would prefer a low key environment with no cats or young kids. I do play well with some of my new dog companions here at Pixie! I  tend to feel uncomfortable in big crowds though, so no dog parks for me. I get so excited to see the world and meet everyone in it that I just have to bark and say hello to all the other dogs. Overall, I am a sweet and excitable guy who is looking for a confident adopter who wants to both play and snuggle. If this sounds like you, then fill out an application today and we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Gloria 2

Gloria5-16_1It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s me, Gloria the Magnificent! Just spend a few moments with me and I will fly right into your heart. I am a 6 year old bulldog/pit bull mix who’s tough exterior masks my BIG heart and all I really want is someone to sit back, relax, and cuddle with! I am a rock star in my play groups with my dog pals and I love people of all ages! No cats in my home though please! And do you know what I would love more than anything? To be with someone in a low key rural environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and to romp around with some doggy pals! Due to rental property breed restrictions, I will require a home that is owned by my new adopters! So come one, come all and meet this cute pit-o-ppotamus! 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.

Daisy is a world traveling, 6.5 year old, 57 pound Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix. She is a Gemini, originally from Western Australia, and has a goofy-sweet personality. Daisy is energetic and needs her exercise. She’s house broken, well-mannered, and obedience trained. Will only get on the furniture if invited and it is covered with a blanket. Appreciates a sweater in cold weather and likes to be covered with a towel. She’s spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccinations.

Favorite activities: Snuggling, playing fetch with a human using a ball flinger, sunbathing (she’s a true blue Aussie), chewing on sticks and antlers, continuing her obsession with squeaky Kong tennis balls, kissing on humans, rolling, riding shotgun, waking up next to a human, long walks on the beach, and swimming
Commands she knows: sit, stay, down, leave it, come, up, off, slow, wait, paw (Aussie version of shake), back up, back seat, let’s cross(the street), gentle and probably many more that I am just not recalling now. She is extremely smart, sensitive, and learns very quickly.

Cats: needs a cat free home (she is a cat chaser)

Dogs: Would be best as an only dog in the home.
As far as dog friends in a social setting, she prefers smaller, polite, gentle dogs with good social skills. She appears to simply enjoy being in the company of other dogs. I have seen her run and lightly play with dogs slightly smaller than her size. I have never seen her play rough or tackle another dog. She seems to enjoy playing fetch with a human much more than playing with other dogs. Daisy needs slow, one-on-one introductions to other dogs, supervised by humans that clearly understand dog behavior, particularly staffy behavior. She gets nervous around dogs that are larger than she is and barking or hyper dogs are overwhelming for her, so keeping her safe from dog parks is best.

Children: I don’t have any experience of Daisy living in a household with kids, but she seems to enjoy respectful children, though sometimes forgets her size and strength. I’d think she’d probably be best with kids maybe age 7 and up.

She is very fearful of thunderstorms and fireworks, so proper care should be taken in providing her a safe area indoors away from these noises.

She is athletic and can be a jumper, so should not be left outdoors. She prefers to be indoors with humans (if she had her choice, all the time) and is very well behaved.

If you are interested in meeting her, contact Jo at

I’m currently living in the Portland area. I can and will make a meet and greet happen if you’d like.

Willie-1Yarrr mateys!  One-eyed Willie here. Technically I have 2 very gorgeous working eyes, but they are two different colors, so my nickname just kind of stuck. I’m just a big, goofy 9 year old cattle dog and farm boy.  I’m just looking for a quiet place to hang with me mateys. I love to go on walks and most importantly  play BALL!  I just love chasing after my favorite squeaker ball at Pixie. I will even bring it back and drop it at yer feet! I’m good with other dogs and cats, but I am a bit social sensitive, so I need to be in a home without kids.  Are yer ready to seek the treasure that is my heart? Then fill out an application today so we can set up a meet! I come to you fixed, micro chipped and vaccinated  with an adoption fee of $250.

Hi everyone! My name is Vince and I am an adorable Lab mix with quite the lovable face. Don’t you just love my under bite?! It goes well with my quirky fun-loving personality! I am big goofy guy who loves to play and have fun. A little bit of snuggle time doesn’t hurt either! Because I am so excitable and wiggly, I need to be in a home with kids over the age of 12 and no cats. I love to play with my doggy pals in playgroup at Pixie and would be fine with another canine companion in the home. I am a bit socially unpolished and will need some basic training. But I learn quickly and am already crate trained! Just look at that mug! You know you can’t resist. So fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Hello! It is a pleasure to meet you. My name is Cadence and I am a sweet, polite 2 year old Lab mix. Don’t you just love my smile?! I am a bit of shy girl, but with a few treats, I become your best friend in no time! I enjoy nice long walks in the great outdoors and would be a great hiking pal!  Since I am a bit wiggly, I would need to be in a home with kids ages 10 and over. But my wiggles come in full throttle when I get to play with my dog friends here at Pixie, so a home with another doggy pal would be just fine by me! So fill out an application today and we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.
