Hi! Hello! Now that I have gotten your attention, I have a joke for you. Why did the cowboy adopt a dachshund? To get a Long  Little Doggy! Ha! I am always cracking jokes because I love being happy. My name is Ella and I am a 5 year old dapple dachshund weighing around 12 lbs. Being a classic doxie, I am like a fun sized energy bar ready to be on the go! I enjoy my daily walks around the block with the volunteers at Pixie and am always down for a game of fetch with some of my favorite toys. Well, still working on the fetch part of it. But I just need your help and some treats, I am sure I will get the hang of it in no time! I am very confident, maybe too confident, with my other dog pals and I tend to be forward in my greetings. Though I am not a dog park dog, I would be happy to have a romp session with a doggy sibling or friend who can handle my intrusive playstyle. I seem to very interested in playing with cats, so a confident younger dog savvy kitty would be ok too. I am excited to meet my human pals and would do best living with older kiddos 13 and up. Silly, sweet, and full of personality, I am ready to make you laugh today! So fill out an application and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Well hello! My name is Miss Ava Gardner and just like my classic Hollywood counterpart, I light up every room I walk into. I am just too sweet! At 3 years young and about 12lbs, I am a chihuahua/terrier mix who is ready to share all my love with a new friend. Always upbeat, my happy attitude helps me make human friends easily and I would be happy to live with kiddos over 12! I am excitable gal when it comes to my volunteer walks and enjoy being out in the sun, exploring the city. I met the office cat at Pixie and I was interested in giving her a sniff, but called away easy with some treats, so a confident dog savvy kitty would be fine. With my doggy friends, I like to be the shining star of the show, so though I am appropriate, I would want to be the only dog in the home. I am eager to play with my favorite squeaker toys, but after awhile I am ready to settle into your lap and get some pets. I am classy lady with a lot of style and whose outgoing personality is sure to put a smile on your face. So honey, fill out an application today and we can set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Beau and I am handsome 4 year old Cattledog mix weighing in at 68 lbs. Being a native Texan, I am not a fan of that big city life, and after moving to rural Oregon a few years ago, I just can’t get enough of the big beautiful countryside! I am a sensitive lad who is slow to warm up to people, but absolutely loves romping around with my doggy pals. In fact, I am in foster with a bunch of them and am having a blast! They give me the confidence I need, so I would need another doggy companion in my new home. I also have a history with kitties and have lived with them in the past. We even would have nice snuggle sessions as you can see in the picture above! Once I have some time to warm up to you, I am your best loyal companion and am ready to do whatever you are up for! Hikes? Check! Cuddles? Double check! Run around in the backyard? Check and check! I am always down for a car ride and I absolutely love the water. No matter what temperature! Though I am very loving and responsive, it still takes me awhile to warm up to new people, so I would do best in a quiet adult only home owned by my adopters. Overall, I am a good looking, silly boy with a big heart and a lot of love to give! So fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Snoopy and I am a 6 year old Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix weighing 12 lbs. Being a terrier mix, I am full spunk and energy! A lot of times people think that means I need a lot of physical activity, but sometimes I really just need some mental stimulation too! I would be a great candidate for nosework games or interactive food toys and puzzles. Being very treat motivated, I catch on to things pretty quickly. Though bigger dogs are not my style, I like to play with the little guys my size. I am forward greeter, but always end up being flirty! No kitties in my home please. Being such a people lover, I am always eager to greet my human pals over 8, and of course always down for some play! Fetch, anyone? I do great on my daily walks with the Pixie volunteers. Apartment life with elevators and hallways isn’t ideal, but I could be ok in a condo or duplex. Though I can sometimes be aloof, if you offer the attention first, I am all for it! Silly, cute, and a bit awkward, I am a fun guy who can’t wait to share adventures with my new family! So fill out an application and we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

“Later Gator!” Wait! Don’t leave yet. The fun is just getting started! My name is Gator and I am a 9 month old Doxie weighing in at 16 lbs. Besides being a energetic and happy go lucky guy, I am also silly and playful, wanting to always be on the go! I can be quite forward in my greetings with other dogs and a confident adult doggy friend could really help me learn some of the basics. They say I suffer from attached sibling syndrome which just means I was kept with my litter mates too long and now I just need some extra socialization and training, so I can learn some manners. Not cats in my home please! Being an excitable guy, I am always bouncy and raring to go on my daily walks around the block. Of course I am all about playing fetch with those squeaker toys too! My ideal environment would be an adult only owned home with experienced adopters who are patient and have the extra time to spend on my training. AN OBEDIENCE CLASS OR LESSONS ARE REQUIRED FOR MY ADOPTION! Being food motivated and eager to please, this should be lots of fun! Full of pep, I am ready to take the next step in becoming you furry friend. So fill out an application and we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Greetings Earthlings! I come in peace! My name is Mars and I am a 4 year old Chihuahua mix weighing just 7lbs. I am just an adorable martian looking for a family to share my loves and cuddles!  I can take a second to warm up to my adult human friends, but once I do, all I want is to be your companion and join you on walks and naps on the couch. My fosters say that even though I am small, I still am able to go on a few long walks and have even gone a few miles at a time! I am a go with the flow type of guy and am just happy to do whatever you are doing! Right now, I am in foster with really polite bigger doggies and though I am starting to open up and play with them, I might feel a bit better romping around with doggies my own size. In fact, other pups give me a boost of confidence and so I would really want to have some furry siblings in my new family. And I would be happy to have a confident kitty in the home as well. I’m not super into the crunchy treats, but I can’t say no to those meat things, what do you call them, hotdogs? Yeah, those are super tasty! My fosters say I have been a wonderful doggy with perfect house manners, so its clear I must have been in a home before. I am just an out of this world happy and mellow guy who enjoys being with my favorite friends both human and animals. Am I your favorite martian? Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet and find out! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Now you see me, now you don’t! I’m sure you noticed there aren’t many non blurry pictures of me. I’m just too fast! My name is Spunky and well, I am just that! At around 1 year old, I am a 10lb Min Pin mix who loves to play! Being a classic terrier, I am always on the go! Since I am still a young guy, I am always learning and would be happy if someone could teach me the basics. A BASIC TRAINING CLASS IS MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! I am a very outgoing player with my doggy friends and wouldn’t mind a confident puppy pal who can handle my exuberance. And I haven’t really paid much attention to the Pixie office cat, so a confident dog savvy kitty would be ok too! I generally like to express myself through my wiggles and voice. I am a classic wild child and would be happy in an owned home with kiddos over 12. Overall, I am a funny, endearing, and quirky kid looking to entertain my new family! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated with an adoption fee of $350.
