*THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT BARBARA AT THE INFO BELOW FOR MORE INFO*

Bubito (Little Bub), Chihuahua Mix, 2.5 yrs 8.5-9 lbs, black with tan and white Has all vaccinations, microchip needs updating with new name, teeth look good, vet records available. Housebroken, not a yapper, loves to run in a fenced yard with canine pals. Female canine pal preferred. Especially likes big, gentle dogs, but also likes some smaller dogs if they’re calm. Preferable is an owned home with two adults, no young children and no babies planned or expected. It would be great if one person works at home.

He’s extremely alert, food-motivated and learns quickly. Knows various commands. Bubito’s fun, loves to play, ride in the car in his car seat (with a hot water bottle in cold weather), and hang out in the car while you get your groceries. Walks well on a leash, is an enthusiastic walker if weather is not too cold or wet and he doesn’t stop to sniff, only to people watch. If you want to hike, with a little training, he might like to be carried in a pack or sling. He pees like a girl dog so he won’t water your flowers. He’s a cuddler on the sofa or under the covers at night. Bubito loves humans and was a hit recently at a sit-down brunch for 12 in a crowded apartment. French food and a dog to sit on laps – what more could you ask for? He spreads the love rather than clinging to just one person.

He had some tough times before being rescued, starving, flea-infested from a darkened garage in September, but has come a very long way with his foster mom. He’s learning to stay home alone in his playpen in the front window with his bed and a pet monitor set up so he can be watched. Progress is excellent with only one or two howls and one two barks. The little guy still has bad dreams sometimes when he’s falling asleep and starts to growl, barks once, and falls fast asleep again. He still gets cranky about 9 at night and growls, but patience and kind talk is easing his fear. I suspect that he was kept in a garage at night before he was actually left there to starve. He’s met with a dog behaviorist who has helped me help him with his healing. I am willing to dogsit for him occasionally and/or offer explanations of what he might be trying to “say”. He’s a bright little dog and understands a lot. Please contact Barbara at bapa.pk@gmail.com or call 503-819-5193. Please leave a message as I don’t respond if driving, etc.

Hello there! My name is Rita Bell and I am sweet and hilarious 6 year old Chihuahua pug mix weighing in at around 11 lbs. I am always complemented on my big expressive eyes who tend to draw everybody in! They also tell of my story of resilience and how I was able to overcome obstacles to be the happy and quirky gal I am today! I am quite the spunky lady when I am in the playful mood and the staff can’t get enough of my play bows and zoomies. I have been around other dogs my whole life and even though I don’t really interact with them, I am very polite and wouldn’t mind having a doggy sibling. And who knows, I may even feel like playing in the comforts of a home. I even seem to do ok with those kitties too! I am happy to greet my human pals over 10 and when we aren’t playing, you can find me rolling on my back asking for more belly rubs. I even received a professional massage the other day and I just laid on my back in her arms, relaxing and enjoying every minute of it! Along with cuddles, I enjoy my afternoon walks with the volunteers, especially when it’s sunny out! And even if it isn’t, well, I am eager to be your ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Howdy, partners! My name is Waylon Jennings and I am a sweet as pecan pie 11 year old Cattledog weighing around 50lbs. I reckon you want to know more about me. Well I would be happy to sing you my tale. You see, I am a native Texan with a heart of gold and though I don’t recall a lot of my past, I must have had a family before because I am so darn social and happy to meet your acquaintance. Being 11, I am hardly what you would call an old man as I still have my spunky side and enjoy walks and chasing kitties (none in my home please). Though I don’t mind hanging out with other doggy cowboys and cowgirls, I would enjoy being the lone-star companion in the home. I am easy going good ole boy never meaning no harm, and enjoy kicking back and relaxing with my favorite human pals over 10. After a routine dental and some bloodwork, I am rarin’ to go and have no hitches in my giddyup! We’ve howdied, but we haven’t shook. So fill out an application today and we can meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hey! How you doin’? My name is Ball Park Frank, but the folks around here just call me Frankie. I am super adorable sausage aged to perfection around 10 years and weighing in at 16 lbs. Sure I could stand to lose a pounds, but I am an easy going guy and happy to do extra walks around the block with you. Heck, I will even play a little fetch with you too. But only if we are playing inside. I am not sure why. Maybe I am just not a “feel the grass between my toes” guy when it comes to playing. But I am pretty smart! In fact, I know most of the basics and when say “bang bang”, well I will roll over and play dead. A doxie that knows tricks?! That’s a keeper! I get along with everyone I meet including those other pups, cats, and kids over 10. I am just a maxing and relaxing dude ready to find someone to hang out with and share all my stories. What do ya say? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you micro-chipped, vaccinated, and neutered with a routine dental and an adoption fee of $350.

Vroom Vroom!! Get your engines started and get ready to go-with me as your co-driver of course. My name is Hemi and I am an adorable 5 year old Chihuahua weighing in at 9lbs. You see, I am from Texas where we just love our NASCAR.   After a slight mishap on the racetrack, Pixie took me in and got me all fixed up, and now I am feeling good! I still have just the same amount of horsepower as before, but I do now have some incontinence issues that require me to wear a little doggy diaper. But there is only one requirement- it has to match our driving uniforms of course! And I still love to wrestle with my smaller doggy friends like never before! I even don’t mind being around those kitties. I am even quite the climber and make my up to my favorite spot on the cat tree. I am even getting acupuncture done which makes me feel great! And I am such a champ for it too! Since I can be a little shy with new people, I would need to be in an owned home with no kids. Though I can be a bit slow to warm up, with a few yummy hotdogs and some patience, I quickly become your new lap snuggling partner! And then it’s back to winning the race and your heart! So strap in and fill out an application today and we can get the wheels turning, and set us off on another adventure. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $250.

Hello! My name is Skippy! No silly, not after the peanut butter-though I am always up for a little bit of that in my kong.   But my name is actually because when I meet you, I am so happy that I skip across the room and into your arms! I am a 13 year old chihuahua mix hailing all the way from LA. I have had a pretty adventurous life and though I still love my daily walks, I am ready to settle into my new quiet home and get a little rest and relaxation with my new family. I wouldn’t mind having another kitty in the home, but I prefer to be the star of the show and only pup in the home. But my adult human pals are my real favorite, as I am the best darn cuddler this side of the Mississippi! I am very happy with attention of any kind and I am just yearning to be someone’s companion. I am just a sweet soul with a big heart that I want to share with you! Fill out an application today, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with up to date dental and an adoption fee of $300.
