Penne for your thoughts? How about a Penne to add to the family?! I am an adorable 5 month old gal hailing all the way from the tropics of Hawaii. I don’t gnocchi what my breed mix is really, but the trainer says I’m no impasta to the sighthound group, and most likely am an Italian greyhound mix currently weighing in at 8lbs. Though I look just like a miniature Pharaoh hound! Since I am young pup, I have much to learn and see still. The pastabilities are endless! I’m a sensitive gal, but am gaining the confidence I need to explore the world. I love my puppy pals friends, so maybe another confident doggy can help show me the ropes! As far as Portland goes, well, this ziti is all new to me, but I am curious and respond well to training and am continuing to have positive associations in the world. PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. When it comes to playtime, I’m a saucy one and really enjoy playing with my favorite toys and getting the zoomies. Whether it’s my human pals over 12, my doggy friends, or those dog savvy kitties too, I am a friend to all who will join my pasta crew! Adorable, hilarious, sweet, and playful, I am just a young pup looking for someone to show me the world, get me into a routini, and have some fun and cuddles together! The pesto’s yet to come! So fill out an application today, and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $400.

Oh hello! My name is Teddy and I am a 2 year old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix weighing in at just a mere 5 lbs. I am a sweet guy who takes a little time to warm up, but once I do, I am full of love and kisses! I have been in a home environment my whole life and the shelter is new and kind of scary to me, and I am really looking for a nice foster home to relax in for awhile, as I continue to blossom! I am looking for a quiet home with no kids, and a mellow but playful little pup or kitty would be ok too! I’m mostly a snuggler, but have some doggy friends that I do enjoy romping around with at Pixie. I even like to play fetch with my human pals with a tiny ball that is just my size! Available for adoption or foster, fill out an application and email info@pixieproject.org for more details. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi, my name is  Turtle’¦I’m a purrfectly lovable lady  and I need a home.

My Daddy got sick and had to be taken away, some very sweet neighbors have been caring for me but I really miss having a home. Do you have room for me?’

‘œI’m about 6 7 years old and like both indoors and outdoors. I especially like being inside at night. Once I get to know you I am very affectionate and loyal.    Meowwww.’

‘œIf you’re interested (a sign of very good taste, by the way), please contact my friends, either  Sandra:  503 502 8068 or Fred 503 287 6661  (call or text).’

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

Hello everyone! My name is a Peanut Butter and a scrumptious adorable young Terrier mix weighing in at about 15lbs. Being a young guy, I am quite playful and energetic, and really love those squeaky toys. Though I can sometimes be a tad shy at first, I quickly open up with a treat or two. Can you guess what my favorite flavor is? Peanut butter of course! Ha! The downtown hustle is too much for me, but wouldn’t mind an owned home in a quieter neighborhood in town. I enjoy playing with my puppy pals here at Pixie and wouldn’t mind another doggy in the home. My perfect playmate is one who likes to play without being super in your face. No kitties in my home please! I enjoy hanging out with human friends over 15 and love to snuggle in after a day of romping around. Will you be the jelly to my Peanut Butter? Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

“Stepping up to the plate is the rookie of the year, Sammy! All he needs is to hit this one out of the park to find his forever home and win the game!!” You heard it right folks, my name is Sammy and I am a cute and active 2 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix weighing in at 10 lbs. When I am not playing baseball, fetch, or tug, you can find my out and about! Whether it be walking around the block or a more in depth hiking adventure, I am eager to be on the go and explore the world. I am a socialite who loves just about everyone, including my human pals over 10. I am an excellent team player with my doggy pals and really know how to read the room to adjust my playstyle to their liking. I am very energetic and bouncy, and just full of life and happiness! But I would be even more ecstatic if I could share these moments with my own family who could come to my games and cheer me on. Maybe even practice catch in the backyard?! I am a quick learner after all, which helps with my basic training! Once you meet me, you’ll know you hit a home run. So fill out an application today! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Sookie is a gorgeous, glossy black domestic shorthair. She is spayed and 13 years old. She loves sleeping on your chest, legs, or stomach.

We are looking to re-home her into a loving home with no other animals and quite possibly an older, chill person (or people) who wants a snuggle cat. She has always regularly gone to the vet and recently it was noticed that she has bilaterally small kidneys but they said it could be dealt with the remainder of her life with lower phosphorus food and didn’t need other treatment.   Are you the perfect person for her?

Contact Janelle at  janelle.coburn@gmail.com to meet Sookie!

Good morrow! The name is Sir Fitzwilliam and I am a sweet 10 year old Fox Terrier mix weighing in at about 18lbs. Despite my age, I am still an active gent who loves to go for daily   walks or play fetch in the backyard. I do have an old man tremor, but it doesn’t affect me in any way. Just a little shaky, but still very much agile. I am super social and have even bee attending my foster’s office. They say I make a lovely office companion as I greet all people and other animals with a smile and a tail wag. Back home after a long day at the office, we go for another jaunt around the kingdom grounds before sunbathing in the backyard garden area. At the end of the evening, it’s back inside the castle walls as we snuggle the night away in front of the tv. I will even sometimes lay on my back or lay right on top of you to get some extra snuggles in! Since I am a bit older and really enjoy being around my people, I am looking for a family in an owned home who isn’t gone for a very long work day or maybe I could even join you at the office! Overall, I am a adorable, valiant, and loving knight who is ready to settle down with you in your palace today! Let’s begin the rule in our own kingdom! Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped with an up to date dental and an adoption fee of $350.
