Pickles 1

Looking for a dog to love, but haven’t found the right one? That’s quite a pickle! Maybe you should come meet me! I’m  a 1 year old, 33 lb Lab mix who is goofy, energetic and lovable!  When I’m not busy doing ollies on my scooter or telling jokes to the other dogs, I like to explore the world – with my mouth! Ha! I have quite the habit of picking stuff up so I definitely need a patient home that will take me through puppy classes – I’m just a youngster after all!  I do great with other animals and will be best in a home with older kids (that way you can focus your energy on training me!).  Am I your boy?  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.

Melly 1

Howdy y’all!!  I’m Melly!  A 1 year old Lab mix from Texas whose personality is as big as the state I came from! Darn tootin’ I’ll keep you on your toes, but I’ll also keep a smile on your face. I’m sassy and silly and you ain’t gonna find a better combination than that! I’m about 35 lbs, and high energy but I’ll be a perfect  dog to take on adventures whether they be surfing or mountain climbing.  I do great with other dogs, good with kitties (with proper introductions so I don’t overwhelm them with my Southern charm), and best with kids 10 and up.    Since I’m a youngin’ puppy classes are mandatory with my adoption.  Do I sound like the gal for you?  Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet. I am fixed, vaccinated, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $250.

Fernando? More like FRIEND-ando!  🙂  As a 19 lb, 2 year old Border Collie/Corgi mix I shine with a light that makes the whole world brighter! My charming personality is bound to keep the winter blues away from your family. As you may have guessed, I do very well with dogs, cats and kiddos.  Once I find my way into your home you will wonder what you ever did without me! Am I the delightful boy your family has been looking for? Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet! I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.

Scout 1

Are you ready for adventure? Me too! I’m Scout a 1 year old Cattle Dog mix who is as smart as I am handsome.  You won’t need a wilderness survival guide when I’m around, I know all the tricks to starting a campfire, knot tying, and cooking the perfect hot dog (I’m a terrific taste tester too)!  Pretty skilled, huh?  Well to be honest, there are still some things I don’t know and will need to go through puppy classes.  I’m also a great match for anyone who has an agility course in their back yard (or want one!).  When I first came into the shelter I needed help making friends with other canines, I’ve come a long way but still need work on socialization and I’m not a dog park dog. My ideal home is a cat-free, active adult only home that really wants to focus on making me the best dog ever! I won’t let you down, Scout’s honor! Am I the boy for you? Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet. I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.

Our dogs and cats will be taking January 1, 2015 off as a day of reflection and to write their New Year’s Resolutions. We have already heard a couple of the dogs want to follow their dream to be Broadway stars, and 2 of our cats want to see the Egyptian pyramids.  Consider supporting their cause by donating to Pixie Project or volunteering your time (as a dog walker, or you know, voice coach).  Happy New Year! Love, Pixie Staff

This is a very special pup for a very special home.  Nils is a 1.5 year French Mastiff, Dogue de Bordeaux in need of a home. He has a huge head and a huge heart! He does great with other dogs and while his size makes him a beast, he has a more gentle play style.  He  is a ham for attention,  loves people and being part of the family. He will require some basic training but he is potty trained. He is curious with kitties, but with a dog-savvy feline friend and consistent training he should do well.  The main concern for this guy is his back. He had a severe injury when he was younger where he was paralyzed in his rear legs. He recovered but still has residual back pain and rear limb weakness as a result. This will require long-tern  management so he can regain some strength and support in the rear end. Assistance with getting him acupuncture and laser therapy will be included with his adoption, but he will also need medication and supplements. He shouldn’t be in a place where he needs to do lots of stairs regularly and some carpeting would be ideal.  He will make a wonderful companion and is a really easy and relaxed boy!  He is good with kids 8 and up and would enjoy a home with another canine companion! Would  you be his perfect family? Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet.  He is fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  His adoption fee is $180.  He is currently living in foster care.

Want a cuddly companion that can keep away the winter blues?  Pleased to meet you, I’m Hardy! I’m a 2 year old Chihuahua mix that is equal parts entertainer/lap warmer/life coach. You can tell me anything because I give great advice and can keep all of your secrets. Spoiler alert: most of my problem solving involves chasing after it or burying it – very applicable advice for everything from romance to loose tennis balls!  I do wonderfully with other dogs and can live with cats and older kids too. I LOVE my daily walks and can help you make friends with all of your neighbors with my sunny disposition! Do I sound like the dog you have been waiting for?  Fill out the adoption application so we can schedule a meet and greet. I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $250.
