Do I have the cutest underbite in all the land? Why yes, yes I do! The name is Fred and with my good looks and silly personality, it’s near impossible to resist my puppy like charm. At 4 years old, I am a Southern transplant making my way to the great PNW all the way from Texas. Here, I have already made a lot of new friends and am excited to meet more! Since I am still new to this area, I am still a little sensitive to busy environments and so I am not really one for walks right now. I would much rather hang in the yard with my dog pals or play some fetch in front of a nice warm fireplace inside. I am a very spunky Chihuahua mix who really likes to play with my fellow dog friends. My foster siblings aren’t into playing with me as much, so I tend to have to self entertain with toys and chewies. Having a playful dog in my home would be awesome not only because it would be so much fun, but also help boost my confidence and feel comfortable while you are gone for the day. That reminds me, I would do best in a home setup without shared walls with neighbors and a yard to run around in since I am not a fan of those walks.  My foster home does have some playful kitties residing there and I do pretty good with them. Sometimes I ignore them, and other times I am in the mood to play, so a confident at used to energetic dogs is key. I can be overwhelmed by lots of activity and noises, so a quiet home is ideal and I wouldn’t mind living with a dog experienced older kiddo over 13. Quirky and adorable, I am a affectionate kid who is happy to be by your side. Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Georgie had a rough start in life, but that hasn’t stopped him from being the sweetest kitty! He is somewhat fearful of new situations and takes time to warm up to new people, but once he is comfortable his sweet and goofy personality makes an appearance. He loves snuggling and being carried around like a baby, and loves all toys, especially feather wand toys, tunnels, and his catnip banana. He is quite the conversationalist with an adorable repertoire of little meows and chirps, and loves to hold a conversation with you as he follows you around or plays with his toys. Once he is past the initial readjustment phase, Georgie is an “easy” cat. He stays off the counters, likes treats but is not food obsessed, doesn’t bother plants, and only scratches on the cat tree. He would be a wonderful companion for someone who has the patience to help him readjust to a new home. Because he is somewhat fearful and timid, a home with rambunctious children or dogs would not be a good fit for him.
He is being re-homed at no fault of his own, as the prior resident cat is not accepting Georgie and unfortunately neither cat is getting the space or attention they deserve. Georgie is approximately 2 years old and is completely healthy. He is FIV positive which means that he will need to be an indoor only cat. Learn more about FIV here: https://www.vet.cornell.edu/departments-centers-and-institutes/cornell-feline-health-center/health-information/feline-health-topics/feline-immunodeficiency-virus-fiv). Georgie is neutered, dewormed, and up to date on vaccines and will go to his new home with some of his stuff 🙂 If you have questions about Georgie or are interested in adding this sweet boy to your family please contact Gail at stant.ga.r@gmail.com

BOOM BOOM! Is that a thunderstorm? Nope, it’s a big old goofy bulldog stomping down the hallway after his favorite toy. Hi there! My name is Thor and I am a sweet silly 1 year old English Bulldog weighing just under 50lbs. I am a totally ham with a puppy like charm that has everyone smiling. Just like my movie counterpart, I am a handsome gent ready to save the world! Ok, so maybe I don’t have a special hammer, but I do have my funny snorts that can save anyone for a bad day. Being a pup, I still doing a lot of learning, but with me being pretty food motivated, it should be a piece of cake! Mmmm, cake. Speaking of training, A TRAINING LESSON IS MANADATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. Since I am a big bouncy fellow, I would do best with older kiddos over 13 who won’t mind me excitedly bumping into them from time to time. I live with other dogs currently and I think having another doggy in the home would be ideal. An adult female who can still play but also can teach me some play skills and when to take breaks. No kitties in my home please. Longer work days would be a bit hard for me, so I am looking for a house set up with no shared walls with neighbors and a family with a stable schedule. I can get excited when I see dogs on leash, and with some desensitization training, I could be a walking companion. Since I still need to practice leash skills, living in a lower traffic area would be best. The trainer met with me and said I am overall just a really nice pup who someone is going to adore. I will be your superhero if you will be mine! So fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Well hello there! My name is Benjamin but you can call me Benji for short. I am 12 yo Bichon mix weighing about 16 lbs. I just adore being around my human pals and am a very social guy when it comes to meeting new people. My foster says that I am mostly a couch potato and happy to hang out on my bed next to her home office when she works from home. I still can be a sensitive guy at times and since I am a bit older, I prefer an adult only home. Once we connect, I am happily attached to your side. This makes long work days hard for me and thus, I would also do best in a house set up without shared walls with neighbors. I seem to be less anxious when other dogs are around and even though I am not a player, I just enjoy the company and would prefer to have another mellow fur friend in my home. I have been around cats before and after an initial transition period, I co-exist happily with the confident dog savvy ones. Though I am perfectly content with dog friends,  I can sometimes be barky when I see them out on walks, so I am more of a hang out in the yard kind of guy. Especially in the summer, you can find me relaxing by the pool in the brightest sunbeam and taking a snooze next to you while you are doing some gardening. I am silly, lovable pup who is  really eager to share all my love with my forever companion! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated with a recent dental and an adoption fee of $350.

Hello hello!! My name is Buoy and I am the beacon in the water that will help guide my forever family to me. At about 1.5 years old, I am silly boy with puppy like energy. I am a bit clumsy, but that is because I am a tripod (or tri-pawd as we say in the rescue world). I am originally from the south and  had a rough time starting out in this life, so I unfortunately had to have a back leg amputated. Even though I still am a bit wobbly, I have exuberance and confidence to keep going and so it doesn’t really really seem to bother me much. I am also a super resilient pup, so though I may be just a tad bit shy when meeting new people, I open up quickly with a treat or toss of a toy, and would do great in a home with kiddos over 12. I am quick learner and love my treats, which is super helpful when it comes to my training. Right now, I know some of the basics and are familiar with crate training, but could still use some of the basics. I enjoy playing with my dog pals my size who can handle my bouncy playstyle, and do tend to get overwhelmed in big groups of pups, so dog parks are not my thing. I would be happy to have a confident lady friend though who can still keep up with my play, but also help me learn when to take breaks. I have lived with 2 kitties before in the past, so a cat who is dog savvy would be find in my home. To get my energy out, I enjoy playing fetch and might be up for a short walk walk around the block, but I am definitely not what you would consider an avid hiker or anything like that since it can be a bit challenging for me to keep up. But that doesn’t mean I am still not full of zoomies and big energy! It would also be helpful for my future family to have a house like set up just because stairs can be difficult and it would nice to have direct access to the outside. I have lived in the city before and can still get a little overwhelmed by super busy areas such as downtown, so a quieter neighborhood would be best. Silly and sweet, I am a special pup ready to play with my new family today. Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Oh hi there! My name is Annie and I am as sweet as pecan pie 3 year old pup hailing from the South. Between my foster, and the trainer and vets at Pixie, we know for sure that I am Anatolian Shepherd mixed with most likely husky and some sighthound like saluki. But we don’t know for sure of course. All we know is that whatever I am, I am a very beautiful lady! Weighing around 56lbs, I am tall but slender with gorgeous soulful eyes. Being from Texas, it is likely that I was an outside doggy for most of my life, since I just love hanging out in the yard all day. It is a classic husky trait after all! I just really enjoy just curling up under the shade tree in the backyard for hours while my foster does some gardening. My foster mom is awesome and has taught me how to walk on a gentle leader and we go for 2 miles walks almost everyday! She lives out in the country a bit, and though I sometimes get really excited when I see deer or squirrels, I always just ignore the dogs I walk by. Even if they are barking at me! I am much more of a people dog and would prefer to be the only pet in the household. I like having the attention all to myself! I am not much of a player with toys, but do love a good belly rub. I am not a velcro dog or demand your attention, but will happily accept it when you want to give it. It can take me a little while for me to transition into a new environment, but after warming up, I am much more confident and relaxed. My ideal situation would be an adult only house with a fenced yard that is a bit of quieter neighborhood than the inner east side areas. I am a very vocal lady who loves to express myself with my voice and my foster has even heard me say ” I love you” a few times. It is pretty cute and makes everyone smile! Sensitive, sweet and affectionate, I am a unique doggo ready to find my forever companion. Will it be you? Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Snorfle Snorfle Snort Snort! That is Boston Terrier for “I love you!” My name is Toby and I am a lively 9 yo guy weighing around 20 lbs. I came to Pixie from a place in rural Oregon. I was picked up by some nice people, but I was in pretty rough shape from living outside. Pixie got me immediate care and am currently in healing mode and going great! My back legs are a little stiff, so I would do best in a home without hardwood floors or stairs. Rugs are best so I can get some traction! Direct access to a yard is helpful too since I am not much for walks and sometimes when I need to go, I need to go, so a quick exit to some grass is ideal. Though I am not the super cuddly type, I am starting to warm up to cuddles on the couch but am also happy to lay in a nice warm bed at your feet. When I get excited, my whole body wiggles and I can be a bit bouncy. But if you just ignore me, I quickly put all feet on the floor. I am a quick learner like that! Especially when there are yummy treats involved. Though I am happy to great everyone I come across, since I am a bit older, I would prefer a quiet household with older kiddos over 13. I get along great with my fosters kitties and chickens, and have met other pups my size that I seem to get along with just fine. My fosters say that I don’t really seem to be into walks but enjoy taking in the new smells. But more than 2 blocks is pushing it for me, so then it’s back inside snoring away in front of the fireplace. Sweet and silly, I am an endearing lad looking to be your adorable, snorting sidekick and friend! Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.
