Hi! My name is Cecil. I may seem like I am a dog, but you would have to be mistaken. I am actually a Muppet. I am an adorable 2 year old Lhasa of a Muppet with the most luscious of all eyelashes!   When I am not being pretty darn adorable, I enjoy playing with my toys with the squeaker ones being my favorite. I even try to throw the smaller ones up in the air to myself. Cute and hysterical. The whole package! I am sensitive guy and it takes me a minute to get used to transitions, but once I settle in, I am the most rewarding fun guy ever! I like to cuddle sometimes, but other times I like to hang on my bed alone. Other dogs in the home are just fine, and though I tend to chase kitties at first, those dog savvy ones help teach me the manners needed to hang with them as you can see in the picture above. I do enjoy my afternoon walks around the block, often stopping to get all the smells in before moving onto the next. Because I can be a sensitive guy, I would be best in a quiet adult only owned home. So let’s have some fun today! Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Wolfie and I am a cute 10 year old Yorkie gentlemen weighing in around 13lbs. My hobbies include: howling at the moon, going on walks, and meeting new friends of all shapes and sizes! My typical favorite day would be to wake up with breakfast in bed after some nice morning snuggles of course, followed by a nice stroll around the block. After we get back, it’s back to a short nap and then some more play time with another mellow doggy friend or dog savvy kitty too! After a brief lunchbreak with some yummy treats, it is back to work getting numerous belly rubs and lots of attention from my favorite chill human pals over 10. To end the night, we would take a moonlit stroll on the beach, as I really enjoy taking in all the smells. Does that sound like your perfect day too?! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, with an up to date dental exam and an adoption fee of $350.

Hi! My name is Emma and I am a 3 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix weighing in at just 9lbs. And this girl is all about the wiggles! When I am happy and excited, my whole body seems to wag instead of just my tail. It is really cute. Just like me! Ok, enough with how adorable I am, I guess. I am an upbeat girl ready to take on the world! Even though I enjoy my walks, I am still getting used to downtown traffic, so a quieter neighborhood would be best to practice. But don’t you worry as I am a quick learner who is very food motivated. So a little more practice and I will have it down in no time! Same with the rest of the basics too. I am a little bit of attention lover, so I do enjoy having all the focus on me. But I do occasionally like to romp around with my dog buddies too. I just love people so much that kids over 13 in the home would be just fine,   but no kitties in my home please. I am hilarious to watch as I romp around the play yard with my prances, dances, and wiggles. I could star in a one woman show for sure! I just know the audience would give me a standing ovation. But I realize I don’t want to go at show business alone, so would you want to join me in my Broadway adventures? Fill out an application today, so we can start practicing our moves together! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Greetings people of Earth. You might recognize me as a cuter version of that sarcastic and lovable alien from that tv show-Alf. But most people around here just call me Alfie. I am 14 lb one year old Beagle/Corgi mix from another planet. Ok, I guess California doesn’t count as another planet, does it? Ha! I am still learning all about life and loving every minute of it. I am always ready to go go go and explore more places and things, making new friends along the way. I may not have 8 stomachs, but it sure seems like it, as I am very food motivated which makes training easy. OBEDIENCE CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION!   Just like my tv counterpart, I love to sing and play instruments. It’s that part beagle in me you know. So an adult only owned home would be best for me! I have lots of energy and just adore playing with my doggy pals of all shapes and sizes, and thus would need to be in a home with another pup. Like my namesake, I am not a big fan of cats, so no kitties in my home please.   Cute, energetic, and funny to the max, what more could you ask for? You know what they say, “Traditions are like plates, they are made to be broken.” So let’s live a life where we can always do something new and exciting! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Cheetoh is my name, and loving on you is my game! I’m a dangerously handsome 9-year-old de-clawed kitty that is very social and snuggly. So far here at Pixie, I haven’t met a person, kitty, or doggy that I haven’t met, and I lived with dogs and kids in my former home so it’s safe to say that I’m very well-socialized and would make a fabulous family kitty or companion. Sometimes I can be found cuddling up with my kitty friend Skipper who I met here at Pixie, and when people visit, I’m usually one of the first out to say hello and ask to be held! I do take my nap time pretty seriously, like most cats, but I will gladly be woken up for some attention. I’ve lived life as an indoor-only cat and I am de-clawed in the front, so I will definitely need to stay indoors, which is totally fine with me since it’s what I’m used to. As long as I have a warm couch to cuddle on, I’m a happy kitty! When I came to Pixie, they tested my blood since I’m a little older and discovered that I was hyperthyroid, which means that I need a daily, very affordable medication to manage my thyroid. Pixie always provides a few weeks of meds to get me started and will also provide me a dental and follow-up bloodwork to make sure my medication dose is helping me stay leveled, so the lucky adopter who gets to take me home will not take on any immediate medical expenses. Like any kitty, I’ll need regular annual exams and will need to stay on my medicine for life — there is a procedure that can be done which will cure me of my illness for a one-time cost of around $900, and the wonderful staff here would love to discuss that option with anyone interested in learning more. I think I’m more than worth it — just look at me! I’ve got the personality to go with the looks, so come down to Pixie and meet me soon! I can’t wait to complete my next forever family. I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Sweetie is a 3-4 year old spayed, snuggly lovebug with an unknown past.  She recently saw a vet who states that, aside from her obesity, she is in very good health.  She is also current on her vaccinations.  Paperwork and tags provided. She is as clean as a whistle but was not one bit happy about the full bath she got when she was rescued (oh, the howls!).  The poor girl is so big she had a hard time cleaning herself so needed a little help.  She seems very pleased with the results. She has been in my home for two weeks after I rescued her from an elderly neighbor who recently had a stroke and can no longer care for a pet.  Apparently, Sweetie went to her home only four months ago from a craigslist ad.

Here are my observations of her:

Sweetie is a curious, playful girl and loves to sit in laps.  I don’t think she could get too much brushing (even on her belly) and appreciates chin scratches since it’s sometimes difficult for her to reach her head with her back legs.

We found a food she likes and she likes it A LOT.  She prefers to have mini meals through the day but I’ve been trying to get her accustomed to eating twice a day.

She most definitely should be an indoor only kitty.  Not only because of her size (and therefore lack of speed!), but her darling pink toes make me believe she always has been.

She has immediately approached and said, ‘œhello’ to every visitor to my home.  She is exceedingly social and grabs the heartstrings of those who meet her.

I’ve restricted her play while she is at this weight, but think if it were up to her, she’d have a never ending game of ‘˜catch the bumble bee’ (wand toy).  There’s also a favored mouse she likes to ‘˜stalk’.  She also enjoys her naps and quiet time sitting on window sills and watching the world go by.  She doesn’t hesitate to jump up and down on beds, chairs, sills etc., but the vet advises limiting the jumps down as this is hard on her joints until she reaches her ideal size.

I hope she finds a FOREVER home that will have plenty of time for attention, love and play for her.  She so deserves this.

P.S.  She has beautiful green eyes : )

Good afternoon! How do you do? My name is JR and I am a happy go lucky miniature poodle weighing in at around 9 lbs. At 14.5 years young, I am still an exuberant and excitable guy who is ready to meet everyone! I love going for walks around the block and hanging out with my other doggy and kitty pals too. In fact, I ran right up to the Pixie office kitty and gave her a huge kiss on the nose. I am just always walking on sunshine and full of spunk. I just recently had bloodwork and dental done and am a super healthy guy! I am looking for a nice retirement home full of cuddles and another mellow dog to hang with too. With a smile on my face and pep in my staff, I am ready to take   on the day and share my joy with you! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $250.

Will real Slim Shady please stand up? Hey, that’s me! I am a super cute 3-year-old Chihuahua mix weighing in at 12lbs. If you are looking for a chill, quiet and cuddly guy, then I am your main man! I can be a little shy at first, but with a few treats you can tell I am a pup that is eager to bond and snuggle the night away. Since I can be a little sensitive, I would need to be in a low foot traffic owned home with no kids. I do have some doggy pals that I like to romp around with here at Pixie and I don’t mind a kitty in the home either! Though I am not much of a player with toys, I do enjoy my daily walks around the neighborhood. So if you are “cleaning out your closet” and realize that you feel a little empty “without me”, then fill out an application and “lose yourself” in my cuddles today! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an  adoption fee of $300.
