*HAZEL IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT SASHA AT alexandra.gor12@gmail.com*

Hello! Will you be my forever human? 

My name is Hazel and I am looking for my forever home. I was found in bad shape on the streets of Portland in November of 2020. My foster mom got me spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and nursed me to a healthy 70 pounds. But unfortunately, I can not stay with her forever. 

I am about 4.5 years old Pit-bull mix. My foster mom has been calling me Hazel since she found me, and I know and respond to that name well. I am super mellow and just want to nap at my human’s feet all day long. Belly rubs are my favorite things ever. It would be ideal if you are retired or work from home. Sometimes I get sad alone and chew on things. I don’t jump or bark much, and I love giving kisses to everyone who walks in the house, including children.  However, it has been recommended that a home without young kiddos present all the time will be best, as I am sensitive and get overwhelmed with a lot of activity.

 Right now I share a house with a cat, and we stay away from each other, and I gladly share my water bowl with her. But I do like chasing cats and squirrels out on my walk. I get growly with other dogs when they come close. I respond great to positive reinforcement training, and am looking forward to attending a reactive dog class, if you want to help me get over my fear of dogs. 

I have some old injury to my leg so I walk slowly and rarely run. Stairs are difficult for me. Few carpeted or concrete steps are fine, but a hardwood staircase is a big no.

I will come with my beloved kennel, food bowls and everything else you might need for me. 

The adoption fee is $350. 

Please contact my foster mom Sasha at alexandra.gor12@gmail.com

*HANK IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT AUBREY breychristofferson@gmail.com  *

Howdy! My name is Hank Williams. I’m a 9 year old livestock/guardian breed, and just like the old Country musician himself, I’m a sensitive soul, a love crooner, sometimes lonesome, and nervous about cheating hearts. People always stop me when I’m walking and tell me what a Handsome boy I am; maybe it’s the permanent eyeliner I wear, who knows. Point being, I should’ve been a dog model… for like American Cowboy or something.

My ideal days starts with a morning butt-scratch, a nice walk around the neighborhood, maybe a trip in the car to run some errands (window rolled-down of course), and plenty of time to just lay down at your feet or by your side relaxing like best buds do. I’m super smart; my family likes to claim I’m so smart, I know how to play dumb. Hahahaha….oh wait, they’re on to me. I love to lay down… have you seen all those pictures of me laying down? It’s one of my favorite pastimes. I also LOVE people (like A LOT, like “jump up on you, lick you and croon” kind of love), problem is, no matter how many times I get told the crazy 5-year old I live with is a person, I just don’t believe them; children make me nervous and sometimes I get so nervous, I react in fear. So, I need a home and a life without children.

In fact, I need a quiet, stable home in general. Other dogs sometimes make me confused and protective. My family and I have worked on this on walks and on-leash and I’m VERY proud of how far I’ve come not being reactive, but I’m still not ready to have to share my home with them. I’m also convinced cats are just really big toys that like to taunt me and, I admit, if I’m off leash, I will chase them; I think it’s just a bundle of fun, but no nobody else seems to. Just between us, I don’t like transitioning to new spaces and it takes me some time to warm up to new places.

With that in mind, some things about you that would be best for me: you don’t work long hours (maybe you work from home or are retired) and you don’t live in an apartment or in the bustle of the city (don’t forget, I’m a country boy at heart!). Please don’t make me an outside dog, give me a solid fence to keep me in, and don’t leave me without you too soon. I promise I’ll reward you for you dedication. ‘Cause no one will love you as unconditionally as I do. Look into my soulful, sensitive eyes and you’ll see what I mean.

(Adoption Fee of $250 required – I come fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped)

*MARLEY IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY. PLEASE CONTACT JULLIA AT julliaalexander@gmail.com FOR MORE DEATILS*
 
Hey there! My name is Marley. I’m a nine year old lab/husky/ridgeback weighing approx. 98lbs. I am a calm, reserved wise man with a soft and sensitive soul. Sometimes my puppy side comes out and I can be a playful and goofy boy.
 
My favorite place to be besides at your side is snuggled up on the couch or sleeping at your bedside. I am protective and loyal with the patience of a lion when it comes to small prey entering my yard. A home without cats and small animals is ideal. I enjoy walks but am quite strong. I will walk you if you let me. Someone with a confident, strong, yet soft and patient personality would suit me best. I also enjoy an adventure in the woods and the freedom to run on the beach.
 
Meeting new people is great once I get my initial sniff in. After that, feel free to give me your best scratches on the chest or tush! I enjoy the company of other dogs and am quite tolerant and respectful of size difference when it comes to playing. If I were to have a home with another dog, a strong and confident female who isn’t overly rambunctious would be the best fit for me. I love toys and tasty treats but can become cautious and weary if I think I have to share. Another dog who guards would not work. Small children make me anxious and nervous, so a home without children is a must.
 
Because I’m an older dog, my need for health-care will increase as well as the need for a home and transportation with my joints and I in mind. I have a granuloma (small open wound) that comes and goes due to excessive licking. This is something that I’ve done my entire life. A family or person(s) who has a stable income, commitment, and ability to keeping me at my healthiest and happiest is the owner for me.
 
If you’re looking for that calm yet goofy big softy, an companion whom will be by your side no matter what with the biggest heart, you’ve found him. And who knows, if I think you’re extra special, I just might give you a kiss. 
 
I am currently on the wait list for a neuter. 
 
My adoption fee is $400 with some refundable after the neuter.
