Jack be nimble. Jack be quick. Jack is smart and really slick! Jack is…me! I am a 7 year old Shepherd mix weighing 60lbs. I am a very social gent and love being with my people, and in the home would prefer kiddos 12 and up. I am very much still an active guy and would be a great hiking companion, and I bet I would love a good camping trip too! Walks around the block and playing fetch in the yard would be super fun as well. Whatever the adventure is, I am up for it! I can sometimes be a little talkative. Not necessarily barky, but I just like to tell you about my day and that neat piece of cheese I found on the floor earlier. Thus, I would do best in an owned home without shared walls with neighbors. I have made some dog pals at Pixie and would enjoy having another female doggy in the home to romp around with. Being a bit dopey, I can be  little forward with my greetings, so a doggy sibling who can handle my energy and tell me when it’s time for the break is key. No kitties in my home please! Silly, unique and very quirky, I am handsome lad ready to start the fun times with my new family today. Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Would you give a Moose a muffin? How about some hot dogs? Cheese maybe? Or how about some pets? Whatever you give me, I am a happy boy indeed! Weighing in at a humungous 83#, I am a happy and silly 3 yo American Bulldog with a heart of gold. Though I am very big and energetic, I am less spazzy and jumpy. I mean it’s kind of hard to jump up when you are as big as I am! Full of extra wiggles, I love to engage with my human pals over 12 as they are full of yummy treats and belly rubs. As an adult, I do know some of the basics such as sit and shake, but would be happy to learn even more! Especially since I am so big and strong, I tend to pull on leash, so I could definitely benefit from some additional positive reinforcement training. I don’t really seem to be into toys but definitely into playing ball! But when I am not fetching, I go to lean on the gals in the play yard and ask for some more pets! I get really excited to meet new dog friends and have already met a few friends while here at Pixie. But I can get very excited about those kitties, so no cats in my home please! With my large size and excitability, I am looking for an adopter who owns their home and who has experience with large dogs. Overall, I am a really nice big dopey guy who loves attention and being around my people! 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.

Smokin hot, this handsome pup is the best Brisket in town. Howdy! You heard right…the name is Brisket and as you can guess, I hail from the South-Texas to be exact. At 2 years old, I am a spunky energetic cattledog mix weighing in around 40 lbs. When I first got the shelter, I wasn’t feeling too good and after a quick de-worming treatment, I started feeling much better. That’s when I really came out of my shell and became much more of a pup than originally thought! So I am going to need some of the basics for sure and lots of commitment and stability, but I am very food motivated which helps with my training. Though I am quite boisterous, I also have a sensitive side and can take a little to warm up to new people. Thus, I would need an experienced adult only owned home in a quieter low foot traffic neighborhood or even rural environment would be ok too. I really love to romp with my doggy pals and am currently in a foster home with a few. It is super fun and I really need to have another doggy friend in my home to help boost my confidence! No kitties in my home please. As you can see, I am playful for gent with a love of squeaker toys. Look how much they make me smile! Though I have lots of learning still, I am so worth the extra effort as we snuggle the night away on the couch. So grab the corn and the salads, but don’t forget the best part of every BBQ is the Brisket! Fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello friends! My name is Professor Farley McSnaggletooth and I am here to teach you all about love and companionship while having silly adventures along the way! I am a mature 11 yo Chihuahua mix weighing around 12 lbs with a big heart. My thesis paper, “Using your Voice to Grab Human’s Attention” has been a big hit with fellow dog pals after being published in The Bark and Woof journal. But new evidence shows that the more I use my voice, the less attention I receive, and thus I get bored, and then decide to move onto my next paper. Something about the mental health benefits of sunbathing will do. After all, I do this on the daily anyways! Being a mellow guy, I do still have my playful side. Have to be with it and hip for all the youngsters! When I don’t have an audience, it can make me a little blue, so I am looking for someone who isn’t gone long work days and who has another mellow dog friend who will listen to my lectures which vary from “ways to reach that itch” and “what exactly is a rope toy and how is it fun?” No kitties in my home please! I can take a second to warm up as I still get a little stage fright from time to time, so I would do best in an adult only quiet home owned by my adopters. At the end of a long day of talking, I am always ready to snuggle up to you on the couch as we watch some movies and catch some zzz’s. Silly, sweet, and one of a kind, fill out an application today so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Beans, Beans they’re good for you heart, having them around is really smart! Hehe. I think that’s how that goes, right? My name is Chili Bean and I am tiny 8 lb Chihuahua mix. At 8 years old, I prefer the quiet life and one of my favorite activities is catching some of those summertime rays in the backyard. I am a shyer guy who takes a little time to warm up to new people and environments. But someone who has patience and goes slow, will see a happier and relaxed me in time! Plus, beans always are better as a side dish combo and not a la carte, so a smaller confident dog my size will also help me blossom! I am not into playing with my foster doggy siblings just yet, but I do love playing follow the leader for sure!  I seem to be pretty scared of kitties, so I could potentially live with a kitty who wouldn’t bully  me and just give me my space. Since I am more of a hang at home in the backyard kind of guy, I am looking for a companion who isn’t into doing activities or going on walks or visiting lots of places. I am more of a sipping ice tea in a rocker on the back porch kind of gent! Thus, I am also needing an adult only owned home with some outdoor space I can stretch my legs in. My foster mom says I do great in my crate and that I am just starting to show interest in playing with toys, so maybe you can help teach me this fetch thing that is all the rage? Quiet and mouse like, sensitive but sweet, I am the little bean you want to meet! Fill out an application today. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered for 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! Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

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.

Maisie here! I am a sweet shepherd mix who, despite being 80lbs, loves to spoon and snuggle! At about 5 years old, I am an active girl and love to play with other dogs once I get to know them. I need a slow introduction, but would love to have a calm doggie friend in my new home. Someone to help me learn, but also to be a companion and playmate. I love the idea of walks, but I can sometimes get overstimulated. I will need my human friend to continue to work with me on feeling comfortable as I walk by other dogs. Because I am still learning to walk, a home in a more rural area with large space to run and play would be ideal. I love kids, but sometimes I forget how big I am and would do best in a home with kiddos older than 14. My new home should be cat free – I love to chase them, but for some reason they don’t appreciate it! I really am the sweetest girl and would love to meet you!

I am micro-chipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccines! My re-homing fee is $200 and my current owner will fully reimburse this fee upon completion/proof of behavior modification training with a certified trainer. Please contact my mama, Nicole,  ( to fill out an application.
