Are you and your current pup looking for another companion? One that is smart, spunky, high energy, hilarious and do I dare say, adorable? Then look no further as I am your gal! The name is Cleo and I am a 3 year old Papillion mix weighing in at 17lbs. I was a bit of a loner before I got to Pixie, which made departures from my human pals that I bonded with a little difficult. But after going into a foster with another dog friend, I have quickly come out of my shell and am much more relaxed when I have a buddy to follow. Thus, another male dog my size in the home is needed. My foster fur sibling wasn’t much of a player at first, but I was determined and so now they will sometimes get a little spunky and will give in to my antics. Those dog savvy kitties are ok too! Everyone was very surprised to find that I am quite playful, caring toys from room to room and enjoying ball in the backyard, which of course leads me into the zoomies. I absolutely love chilling in the backyard, which is a great outlet for me since I sometimes get a little excited seeing other dogs on walks, so running around in the yard is less overstimulating. I do need a house setup without shared walls with neighbors and a quieter area would be nice as sometimes lots of traffic and construction noises can make me a little nervous. I can take a second to warm up to new people over 12, but once I do, I am your best friend until the end! Fill out an application for me today to set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped with an adoption fee of $350.

*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.

We’re looking for a few specialty dog fosters! We have a few bigger pups who are looking for more-experienced fosters who have a little extra space: homes with yards, not-super-busy neighborhoods, maybe neighbors who are far enough away that they’re not going to be bothered by some new neighbors. (Not all of our dogs have these requirements: we just have a group right now that are used to a little more space and a little less city and we want to make sure we help them settle in as best we can!) If you fit the bill, check out our foster application on our website or email info@pixieproject.org . You can also check out the dogs who are looking for foster homes at pixieproject.org
