Hi, I’m Gracie and I am a snuggle-bug who loves to play. My foster mom thinks I’m adorable, smart, curious, loving, and wanting to please. (Moms are so sweet when they sing our praises, aren’t they?) As a 1 year old mixed terrier breed, I weigh in at 19 lbs. I can run and play in the yard by myself but would be delighted to have a doggie friend to play with.  After a good romp, I’d probably need a snooze, preferable curled up next to you with my head in your lap. Then I could sit by a window and be totally entertained watching the world go by. Heck, I sometimes like watching TV.

I’m very shy of new people and struggle with anxiety, likely due to lack of socialization during the time of Covid and experiences in my early life. At this point, I might take an hour and plenty of treats to warm up to new human friends. But once I do, I’m putty in their hands!! My foster mom asked a dog expert about my anxiety/fear. The expert said medication could help me adjust to new situations and people. At this point I am wary of men, new sounds, and new situations. But with patience, kindness, and understanding this could all change. I want so very much to write a new chapter in my life because I’m a sweet, fun-loving, cutie-pie, who wants nothing more than to be someone’s best friend and companion. 

Right now, my ideal home would have a yard in a quite neighborhood or in the country. A calm older dog who is well socialized could show me the ropes of how to be a confident dog and friend to all. I’d shine in a home with a predictable structure and no small children. It would great if my soft-spoken, mellow human companion is semi-retired, retired, or works at home. Three things to note: I am housebroken, not a barker, and at this point, I don’t like riding in cars.

So if you’re looking for a life-long companion with a sweet, fun loving character who will be devoted to you – look no further – that’s me! I’d come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $200. If interested in adopting me, please email Victoria at victoriahand@mac.com

Meet Louie! He is a handsome 9-month old bloodhound, pit bull and lab mix who would make a great addition to a loving family with lots of space and a little extra patience. Louie is a joyful and friendly pup, and wants to be with his people all the time. He is super affectionate and loves to sleep on the bed or sit on the couch with you if you let him. He is learning how to walk well on a leash, and loves playing fetch with a ball or a rope toy. We have not taken him to a dog park yet because he is not yet neutered but he has played really nicely with neighbor dogs, and wants to be friends with everyone who walks by. He also loves to dig!

Louie would do best in a quieter neighborhood without a lot of foot traffic. He is extremely interested in other dogs and people, and if he sees them walking by constantly, he will sit and bark or cry because he can’t play with them. He will also bark every time he hears a doorbell or senses someone at the door. He would thrive in a rural setting with lots of space and another
adult dog, preferably a female who can lead him. He should go to a home without cats or kids younger than 13.

He is extremely food-driven and will do anything for a meaty bone or string cheese. He also loves carrots, apples and sweet potatoes. Food is a huge motivator for him, and it’s important to have lots of treats of different kinds when you take him on a walk, or anywhere new or unfamiliar. Louie is a highly social dog and craves constant interaction. When he gets frustrated or overstimulated, he can be bouncy and mouthy. These episodes have gotten less frequent with training, but it’s important to be aware of it and to continue with the positive reinforcement training while always having ample treats on hand to practice. We also use a crate for him, which has been important both for giving him a quiet space and for preventing him from getting into things when left unattended. Louie is highly trainable and picks up new lessons quickly. We have been working with him on basic concepts as well as impulse control. He would benefit hugely from going to a more structured training class.

Louie is up-to-date on all his shots and will be neutered this month.
We adore Louie and are sad to rehome him. Due to an illness in the family, we are not able to give him the level of attention he needs and deserves. It’s important to us that he go to a home where someone is willing to put in the effort to work with him. If you are interested, please send an email to Jayati at Jayati.ramakrishnan@gmail.com.

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.

A very sweet, loving black lab/ pit terrier mix is in need of a calm and dedicated environment. She was rescued last year in Northern California after being found on the streets. She is 3-3.5 years old, weighs about 45 pounds. She is very timid and shy but loves to go for walks and cuddle up right next to you for a movie. She does not have a mean bone in her body and has never shown aggression towards any animals or people (she lived in a home with two kids as well as two dogs without incident).  She is on Prozac and will need to continue the prescription in order to make her life more enjoyable and comfortable. Due to her being a pit mix, she must go to a family that are homeowners. Her ideal environment: Quiet but interactive in training her and giving her the attention she needs. She is a wonderful dog who has the potential to thrive to the fullest with the combination of her medication, training, and lots of love.

THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT! THIS IS A COURTESY POST; PLEASE CONTACT ANDREA AT THE NUMBER BELOW FOR DETAILS-

Look out Lassie, there’s a new kid in town, and her name is Sadie!  Sadie is a loving, athletic and social girl who is approximately 2-3 year old. She weighs around 75 pounds and is a shepherd mix. Sadie was rescue in Houston, Texas after giving birth to 11 puppies. She was a great mom and took great care of her pups. She was well socialized around other dogs, small and large, and with people and respectful children while in Texas. She came to the Pacific Northwest with one of her pups and is currently being fostered in Portland, Oregon. Sadie was made for the Pacific NW because she loves to be outside and would be a great running, hiking and camping partner.   The best home for her would be one where she has a fenced yard to romp in when not enjoying the outdoors with her family. She loves car rides – oh how she loves car rides! She would do well as the only dog and as a part of a pack as she has loved sharing a home with her 8 month old daughter, Isla too. They are incredibly silly and playful which makes for a great deal of entertainment for observing humans who can’t help but smile seeing all the fun being shared. Sadie is smart and has been very trainable. She is responsive and obedient with all the basic commands and enjoys training time. She also loves to cuddle! Sadie is waiting to hear from her forever family. And her foster mom is happy to share more about her and arrange a meet and greet too! If you are interested in meeting me, please reach out to my foster Andrea at 503-348-6216 or drearun@hotmail.com!

-THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT THE EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS

Hi, my name is Piper.   I’m a petite kitty who is perhaps of Russian Blue heritage but my owners aren’t sure.   I am a beautiful princess who likes to be treated as such!   I would love to move away from this busy household that includes a teenage boy that, honestly, I’m not very fond of.   I am a little timid until you get to know me but I love being pet and having my neck scratched. I will return the love with head-butts and lots of purring but don’t particularly like being held. I am a great nap and nighttime buddy and love to sleep as close to you as I can get. I’m 9 years old and just under 10 lbs., spayed, up to date on vaccines and have a clean bill of health from my vet.   I still have my claws but I don’t scratch much, only on the carpeted stairs that look to me like a giant scratching post. I need an owner that appreciates me for the princess that I am!   Before this busy and loud family, I lived in a nursing home environment and would love to return to that kind of calm. Please contact Christina at: walker737@comcast.net or 503-297-1413 to adopt me!
