Hi, I’m Juno, and I’m looking for my new forever family! I’m a smart, loving Labrador Border Collie mix, which means I have a lot of energy! I will be two on February 26th, 2019. I’m great with other dogs, and with confident cats (will chase runners though), and would prefer to live in a home with an even tempered, confident, male dog. I go to daycare a couple days a week to play with friends, but I also stay home alone, uncrated, up to six hours, in a tidy home; then I’m unable to get into anything if I get bored. I like to snuggle up to my family at night and I take sleep very seriously; I don’t even wake up my humans for breakfast! I love belly rubs, butt scratches and snuggling.

I also really like people, and love being with my family as much as I can. Sometimes I get so excited when I see people that I jump at them to get close. I also love (like, LOVE) chasing squirrels. I respond well to positive-reinforcement training (big word for a dog, I know) and clicker training.

I know commands, such as ‘sit’, ‘lay down’,’turn around,’shake,’come’,and ‘place’ (although I’m still kinda learning ‘place’). I could probably do with some more consistent and advanced training. I’ve got great recall, I’m good on car rides, love the outdoors/hiking (PNW cliche, I KNOW!) and am mostly well behaved. I love running (like, LOVE, running), and jumping up on logs and park structures! I’d have fun in agility classes. I don’t chew on shoes (gross) but do like to tear up empty cardboard boxes and dig when I’m a bit bored, so I’m really excited about puzzle games!

I think I’d like to live on a ranch or a farm (and chase sheep and horses and stuff), or would at least need a BIG backyard to run around in. I’m able to jump high so a tall fence would be required for my safety. I would NOT be a good city dog (I already have enough excitement as it is, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!) and can be a bit vocal when I don’t get what I want. I am really happy, affectionate, and cute.

I need a new owner that’s experienced with working dogs, doesn’t have younger kids, is active, and patient, and kind. I wouldn’t do well being left alone all the time as I am very social, so occasional daycare, or a dog sibling for me to play with, or a family member that is home most of the time, would be best for me. I’m super excited to find my perfect family and can’t wait to meet you!

Hi! My name is Frank and I’m a lovable, adorable 8 year old Doxie/Beagle mix weighing in at 13lbs. I’m a pretty easy going guy who is eager to share my love with you! My likes and hobbies include: snuggles, naps, hotdog eating contests, walks around the block, and hang time with my friends. Whether it’s my human pals over 15, other pups, and those dog savvy kitties too, I am very friendly and eager to please! I can be a little shy around newer dogs, so a mellow pup like me would be an ideal companion. Being extremely food motivated, I am easy to train, and really enjoy a routine. What more can I say? I am just a go with the flow kind of guy who is just happy to hang out. Did I mention how good looking I am? Guess, I am just the whole package! So what’s on our agenda for today? Fill out an application, so we can find out! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, neutered with an up to date dental and an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Chloe and I am a 4 year old Chihuahua mix at 8 lbs. The Pixie gals call me the super snuggler because, well to be honest, I just really love cuddles and lap time!! I am a very social gal who is eager to meet my human pals over 8.   Though I am not into long walks, I do have quite a bit of spunk and would enjoy running around the yard or playing with a doggy pal. I adore my four legged friends, both pup and kitty alike, and would be happy to have them join in on the fun! I’m not terribly into toys at the shelter, but I feel like once I get into my home, I will open up even more and enjoy some fetch. But at the end of the day, it’s back in your lap again as we take in the summer sun and relax, sipping ice teas, and enjoying each other’s company. You might notice I have a little bit of cherry eye, but that will get tacked down during my scheduled dental, so that will be all taken care of soon. So what do say, ready to have some super snuggles together today? Then fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed with an up to date dental with an adoption fee of $350. Interested in fostering me while I search for my forever home?

-THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT EFFY AT 971-322-6910 FOR MORE DETAILS.-

Breed: Chow Chow Mix

Age: 7-8 years old

Weight: 85lbs

Energy Level: He’s not an athlete… He loves walks, usually 1-2 a day, he doesn’t know how to play with toys or anything, but he can wrestle! He’s really just happy to spend the day chewing bones and napping, and sitting in the grass (in a well-fenced yard!) to watch the day go by.

His perfect home: No Cats, No Small Animals, No Kids. Low traffic, adult-only home. Fenced yard. A chill suburb or rural home would be great, he doesn’t do well with busy city sounds. There’s no need for dog parks or tons of exciting car-ride adventures (though he’s gone camping before & enjoyed napping in the woods on leash). The more routine & laid back his life is, the better. He does great with structure and predictable day-to-day life. Maybe if someone is retired or works from home? He shouldn’t be alone for more than 5-6 hours.

He could be okay with one other dog in the family, like a laid-back female dog or an especially laid-back, older male dog. He’s made a couple casual dog friends before, and when he got to know them, he began watching them to learn how to be a dog! (He’s really like a very big cat!)

He’s shy with people at first, needs proper introductions with everyone, and lots of space to retreat to until he feels comfortable. Once he knows you & loves you thought, he is so sweet and loves to lay down next to you and cuddle. He’s incredibly loving with his people.

Doesn’t have accidents in the house.
Doesn’t dig holes or jump fences (he can’t really jump, he’s a little top-heavy).

He’s so smart! He learns quickly. Lots of repetition in his routine would bring out his really good manners!  Not a very vocal dog at all, he rarely barks, even when he’s nervous or alarmed.  We’ve been working on him being crate trained! He’ll eat his meals in the crate and will go in willingly if you have hot dogs.    He has a couple dietary needs (no beef, no poultry, high quality kibble or raw diet would be ideal, loves fish). If interested, please contact Effy at 971-322-6910 or willwork4paws@gmail.com

Hi! My name is Quinn. I’m a fixed 2 year old Border Collie. If you want a loving dog, I am it! I think nothing is better than playing fetch and getting belly rubs (besides maybe my favorite treat, red cabbage). I can take some time to warm up to strangers, but after that, we’ll be friends forever. I need a lot of physical activity and would do best in a home with lots of room and land to run around. I suffer from anxiety and would do best with an owner that has experience with doggie anxiety and that can be consistent with life. I would be better off in a home without children or cats. If you think that you could provide me a loving, forever home, then I would love to meet you.   Please call Hayden at 916-205-4072 for more details.

By George, I think you got it!   The love for me, of course! My name is George and I am an adorable 12 year old Silky Terrier mix weighing in at 13lbs. I was found by my friends in Clackamas county in pretty rough shape but everyone’s help, I was able to get back into shape, while looking and feeling great! I am a pretty easy going guy who loves to just max and relax in the warm summer sun. Each day, my foster says I am coming out of my shell and getting more spunky and playful. I don’t mind the other mellow dogs or cats at her place, and would enjoy being around older kids over 12. My foster mom even says I am in love my crate and she hasn’t really heard me ever make a peep! I’m down for a little walk around the block or hanging out in the yard, but then it’s back to cuddling and napping. Overall, I am just an adorable super chill guy who is ready to relax with you today! Fill out an application, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an up to date dental and an adoption fee of $350.

Jinkies!   My name is Velma and I am a sweet 1 year old 7 lb Chihuahua who is figuring out the mystery and following the clues that will lead me to my new family! Smart, quiet, and oh so cute, my foster mom says I am such an easy going gal who goes with the flow and gets a long with everyone I meet! I can take a few minutes to open up with new people, but you can instantly tell that I am girl who is ready to bond with that special someone. I all about those snuggles and would love to accompany you on the couch on a rainy day watching some of our favorite mysteries! But I can still enjoy other activities too, and enjoy wrestling and playing with all my furry friends, cat and dog, and my human pals over 12. My foster mom even found out that I don’t mind swimming in the pool. Though floating on a raft is more my vibe! City noises are still kind of scary and though NW 23rd isn’t my style, I wouldn’t mind a quieter neighborhood in town. I seem to be a lot more confident surrounded by my Mystery INC doggy pals, and would love to join a family where I could have doggy siblings! So grab some scooby snacks, and fill out an application for me today! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped 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 DEBBIE AT THE NUMBER BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.*

Jojo is a 10 year old short hair, 14 lb. Red colored doxie. He is neutered and up to date on his shots and flea prevention. He has an allergy to some shots, but is otherwise a happy healthy senior! He gets along well with other dogs and kids but has not been around cats. Jojo is house trained, travels well in the car, and is leash trained with a harness. He knows basic commands but tends to bark, so with some training he should do better. He has a very sweet personality but like most dachshunds can be a bit stubborn. Jojo loves to snuggle and has been excellent with the family’s young kids. If you can give this loving cuddly senior a new forever home please contact his current caretaker, Debbie, directly at  (360) 431-7434.
