Did someone order the sweet and saucy jumbo Shrimp? Oh hey-that’s me! Big Shrimpin and queen of Chi’s, I am one super sweet lady that you must meet! At 8 years old, I am a Southern Lady with a love of belly rubs, toys, and deep fried foods. At roughly 15 lbs, the vet says I am about 5 pounds overweight, so I am looking to get a bit more active and in shape! I do enjoy my walks, though I am incredibly slow paced. But I am sure after some practice and some weight loss, I will get faster with time! I am a very social gal with my human friends and am always excited to get some scritches from new people. In the home though, I would prefer to live with kiddos 12 and up. I met the office kitty the other day and did just fine, so a dog savvy kitty in my home would be fine. I can be a bit of a Cajun shrimp (extra spicy!) when I first meet new dogs. So if there are dog siblings in my future home, it would be best if they were mellow and won’t mind my rude greetings. I am pretty shellfish that way and like all the attention on myself! Speaking of me, I love snuggles and will do just about anything for a belly rub! I will even roll on my back to make sure you know the exact spot. And did I mention I love my toys?! I could squeak them all day! Adorable, mellow, and sometimes sassy, one meet with me and you will see that I am shrimply the best! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Oh. Um. Hi. Um. It is so nice to meet you. Um. My name is Dottie and I am a shy but sweet 1 year old poodle/doxie mix weighing in at 10lbs. I am also pretty adorable if I do say so myself! Since I am a bit of shrinking violet, it does take some time to come out of my shell to my adult human pals. But with some tasty treats and a little bit of patience, one can see that I really am a happy and wiggly gal. TRAINING CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I enjoy the company of other dogs and they tend to boost my confidence. Thus, since I am a bit of a follower, I would need another confident doggy in my home to really shine! In addition to another pup, a dog savvy kitty would be ok in my home too.  The higher car and foot traffic areas are a little too much for me and I immediately want to go back inside. Thus, a quiet low key neighborhood would make me feel more relaxed and comfortable on walks. I could probably adapt to a mellow duplex and would absolutely love a house with a yard, but apartments and condos are just too busy and overwhelming.  Since I am timid with new people and in new situations, I am not one for busy, crowded places or lots of urban explorations. But a few walks around the block or even a nice quiet secluded hike would be ok by me! Once I am comfortable, my playful side comes out and I get excited and spin in circles. The ladies at Pixie think it is pretty cute. Overall, I am a sensitive and soft, friendly pup looking for my forever companion who can continue to help me blossom and reach my true potential!

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a…mini chow? Look again! It’s me, Bibi the chi chi. At 9 years young, I am a happy and flashy chihuahua lady with a heart of gold! I also never seem to stop smiling which is super contagious and thus everyone around me always has a grin too. Being quite the socialite, I am always eager to say hi to everyone I meet from other dogs, cats and kiddos over 8. I love going for my daily walks, which I honestly need as I am on a little bit of health kick and exercise plan. At the end of the walk, I am ready for lots snuggles and pets on the couch! I can sometimes be a little vocal, especially when I am transitioning into a new place. But my fosters, who are in a quiet apartment complex, say that I take really well to training and am doing much better already! Fluffy and silly, with a heart bursting with love, I am ready to share it all with my forever companion. Will it be you? Fill out an application so we can set up a meet. I come you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! Hi! My name is Sparko and I am a boisterous and lovable 2 year old Husky weighing a whopping 70lbs! I am a very goofy and big guy who doesn’t quite know my size yet. I know some of the basics, but definitely could learn some more. I am very social and eager to meet everyone I see! Though since I can be pretty bouncy, I would do best in a home with kiddos over 12. I grew up with another female doggy companion in my home and I am very playful with other doggies in general, so having another lady friend to romp around with would be just fine by me! No kitties in my home please! Since I am so big and need some space to play, I do need a home that is owned by my adopters. Like a classic husky, I can be a bit aloof but I always down to play with my favorite squeaker toys and that is when my silliness really comes out! Plus, I don’t mind those pets and cuddles. Overall, when I am walking on leash I do pretty well, but if I do pull, I really pull. So if my future person were to walk me, it would have to be someone really strong and who can help me perfect my leash skills with positive reinforcement training. I am just a silly huge floof ball ready to have some adventures! Will you be my exploration buddy? Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Josie but my foster’s call me Rosie Josie because I am just so delightful and cheery! At 9 years young, I am a spunky Chihuahua/Min Pin mix weighing about 13 lbs. Being super playful, I enjoy a good game of fetch with my favorite squeaky toy. But I absolutely love playing with doggies my size the most! I will get all excited and play bow while trying to get the other pup to engage. It’s real cute! I can sometimes get a little barky at bigger dogs on leash but redirect easy with some tasty treats. My fosters say that my crate is my little relaxation zone and I will choose to nap in there at times. It took me a few days to get used the noises in the apartment building, but after some desensitization with some tasty treats, I bark less at the noises I hear, so I am pretty adaptable gal! I always enjoy meeting new human friends over 8. I am very loving but not clingy, so I will either curl up with you on the couch or choose my bed across the room.  Overall, I am a very sweet, polite and gentle lady excited to meet you! Fill out an application today! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

*THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY. PLEASE CONTACT MELANIE AT

Howdy! My name is Hannah, I’m a 7 year old Black Lab/Pit mix and I weigh in at about 50lbs. I’m a curious, intelligent, kind, cuddly pup and will take any opportunity to snooze either next to you or somewhere in the sun. I especially like showing off my tricks for your friends (but only if I’m getting a treat out of it)! I love to explore and sniff around the block. Sometimes, my mama has to hold me back from chasing squirrels, but I’m pretty leash-trained besides that. Some of my favorite things are: playing tug with you, going to the beach and swimming in the water, going on long walks, meeting new people, and taking naps all afternoon! But with any pup you meet, I have a story as well. I originally come from a woman who raised me since I was just a pup and I developed anxiety when I was 7 months old. I take two medications to help with my anxiety, and they usually keep me pretty stable. I’m also dog selective, meaning I really like sniffing and playing with some dogs, but other pups intimidate me and I get timid and on edge. I also love, love, love my owner SO much! With that, I need someone who can either desensitize my separation anxiety, or hang out with me all day!  I’d prefer a home with a stable routine, no small children, and an owned home in a quiet and peaceful area. If there is another dog in the home it would need to be a confident male dog companion around my size. I’ve had two wonderful owners, but am in need of a better environment so everyone (especially me) can thrive.
 
I come vaccinated, micro-chipped, and with all my food, medications, toys, and bed!
 
I’m hoping I can find my forever home, and my mama really wants to help out with that. If you are interested, she is best reached through email: mmccl2@pdx.edu
 
I hope you have a darn tootin’ goofin’ good day!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Voted cutest dog in all of Portland! Ok, well maybe the papers haven’t posted my handsome portrait just yet, but they just have to right?! My name is Rory and I am a 5-6 year old Lab mix weighing in around 75 lbs. Sure I am a big guy, but those who know we tell you that I am an even bigger goofball and that I have the biggest heart of them all! I am a very active and sporting type lab mix who could play ball all day every day for the rest of my life if someone was up to it! Ha! Though right now, I have to keep pretty rested as unfortunately I am heartworm positive. But Pixie is getting me all treated and fixed up and ready to find my new home! I just need a little down time to get healthy before I am able to get back to my spunky self again. I am looking for an owned home with some space since I am such a big and active fella. I do love to romp around with my dog buddies, but can sometimes be a little boisterous, so places like dog parks would be a bit too much for me. But I would absolutely love to have a doggy sister in my home to play with and who is a perfect fit for my playstyle. I have lived with cats just fine in the past, so a confident and dog savvy cat in the home would be just fine. I am a very affectionate and bouncy guy who is happy to be around my human pals 10 and up. Silly, energetic, and overall just a good boy looking to find my forever family today! Will it be you? Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $350. Interested in fostering me while I search for my home?

*Snoring*… Oh what? Sorry! Didn’t see you there. You caught me during my mid afternoon snooze. Oh it’s the evening, now? Well during this life of retirement, you can take a nap whenever you want! It’s the bees knees if you ask me. My name is Jasper and I am 11 pounds of adorableness. At 9 years old, I am all about that relaxing lifestyle. Snoozing, treats, and sunbathing are my go to daily activities. I do enjoy my neighborhood walks, but prefer a stroll in a quieter area away from all these young hooligans wanting to play with me at the park. I am a bit of a grumpy guy sometimes when it comes to first meeting other dog friends, but I am in foster with a mellow lady doggy pal and I really like her! We snuggle all the time! No kitties in my home please. I am not your average Chihuahua in that I am not a huge fan of being picked up. I would much rather do my thing and solicit the attention when I see fit. Thus, I am looking for an adult only owned home with someone who is ok with my independence. My favorite spot is the back of the couch where I watch the world go by.  It’s the little things that I enjoy the most. That small spot of sun in the living room. The smell of fresh food out of the oven. Watching the Golden Girls on the couch with you in the evenings. I love it all and can’t wait to share these special moments with my new family. Fill out an application today to set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.
