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

Are you one of the thousands of adventure junkies in the Portland area? If so, I would love to meet you! My name is Ricky (a.k.a. Ricky The Adventure Dog) and I am up for just about any adventure you throw my way! Think I am kidding? I even love kayaking! Take a look at my Instagram account and see for yourself! Because I have a lot of energy, I really enjoy endurance sports like backpacking, through hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and mountain biking! I come with all the adventure gear I need (snowsuit, hiking boots, wool & fleece underlayers, life vest, backpack, rain coat, etc.) If you’re not an adventure junkie, not to worry! I would also be happy on day hikes, having a nice yard to play fetch in or learning new scent games. I have been told by expert dog trainers that I would also do well with agility training or learning how to find truffles and other wild mushrooms! When I am tired, I will snuggle right up with you on the couch or on your bed and sometimes completely under the covers!  

Now a few words from my super cool human mom: Hello & thanks for your interest in my current favorite adventure buddy! The decision to rehome Ricky has literally been the most painful and difficult decision that I have ever had to make. My partner and I have spent substantial time and money only to come to the heartbreaking conclusion, along with help and advice from seasoned and reputable dog trainers, that Ricky is likely going to be more happy in a home without young children. We have a baby on the way and have done our due diligence to figure this out before our baby arrives so that the transition can work out for us (ideally to have about a month to grieve and settle down) and for Ricky to transition to his best new forever home without the added stress in his current household.

Ricky will do best in a quiet home with an active person or two and without young kids. Mature older, dog savvy kids might be fine. He will do best being the only dog, but he does enjoy the company of cats who will let him be the boss. He has grown up with cats and even enjoys a good ruff and tumble with our cat Forrest. Ricky has some handling sensitivities and resource guarding issues but if you have a quiet household and you are a dedicated, gentle, patient human and eager to learn his idiosyncrasies, you will likely be a wonderful match and he will bring unending joy to your life! I will require a home visit and a re-homing fee of $350, half of which will be refunded to you after two in-your-home training sessions with our trainer.

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!

For more information, please call/text Kristen at  (360) 952-9008  or email at  taytotot@gmail.com.

DJ
‘” THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT; THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT DJ, PLEASE CONTACT CAITLIN AT THE EMAIL BELOW
Meet DJ. A 9 year old tuxedo with personality, charm, and lots of love. In addition to being very handsome, DJ is a healthy, playful guy who loves interaction and his laser pointer! He would love to have a younger male buddy around to play with or a very attentive owner who kept him on his white-dipped toes. He is affectionate and sweet and loves attention. Most of his life has been spent indoors but he also enjoys going outside for short stints. Since I took DJ in, my other 9 year old male is not happy about it and in my apartment there is not much of a separation option. DJ would thrive in more active household (no kids or dogs please) where he can really settle in to his forever home.
Please contact Caitlin for more info:

-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.

*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.

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

Sadie is a 9 year old short hair, 11 lb. Black colored doxie. Sadie is up to date on her shots but is not spayed. She has greatly improved from a paralyzed hind end (Hind Limb Paresis-Cord Lesion). She can walk, but its a bit of an awkward walk. She requires her urine to be expressed by her owner, and needs to be let outside often to avoid accidents. Her current owner has had good luck with doggie diapers but it needs to be strapped on tight or she will wiggle right out of it. Sadie is good with kids but should not be in a home with other dogs/cats. She travels well in the car, is leash trained and knows basic commands. She loves to cuddle with you under the blanket and take naps in her doggie bed. She enjoys short walks but you will need to go slow and at her own pace. She really likes to cuddle with you, have her tummy rubbed and give you lots of kisses! This special senior needs a lot of TLC, patience and understanding, but she still has a lot of love to give! Please contact her current owner Candace at  (503) 789-1306.
