Ciao Bella! Buongiorno! Pleased to meet you you. My name is Bella and I am a 6 year old cattledog mix who is as sweet as a cannoli! At 47 lbs, I am an adorable meatball with a big heart who is very affectionate. When I see new people, I get so excited to say hi and as soon as they start the pets, I plop down in side saddle mode and enjoy the attention. In the home, I would enjoy being with kiddos 12 and up. Though I really enjoy being outside on my walks, I am a bit environmentally sensitive which just means that busy areas with either lots of foot or car traffic can be a bit overwhelming. So I am not a big fan of downtown, but wouldn’t mind a nice quiet neighborhood or suburb where there is less going on. I am a very chill and go with the flow kind of gal. I will take pets over playing with toys, and curling up on the couch or sunbathing in the yard are my favorite activities! No kitties in my home please. I have met a few dogs here at Pixie and can be a little forward with my introduction, but I wouldn’t mind hanging with a confident mellow dog friend. I am more of a people dog anyways. I mean why play with other dogs when you can get belly rubs and tasty treats?!  I am just a happy and silly gal full of cuddles and snuggles to share with my new best friend today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped. and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

“We’re tiny, we’re tooney, we’re all a little looney!” We are Rocky and Foofa, and we are doing our best silly impressions so we can become the next Looney Toons! We would be the perfect fit after all. Our antics are so entertaining that the Pixie gals can’t help but laugh and giggle at us. We are both 8 year old Chihuahuas weighing at about 7lbs each. We have come out of our shell a lot, but we are still a little shy when we meet new people. We have to keep working on our confidence building if we want to be comedians though, and we are quick to come around with a little patience and some treats. We are very much a dynamic duo who has been with each other since we were pups, so we are pretty attached at the hip. Our act just wouldn’t work as a solo anyways, so we will stick together! We are quite the talkative pair with a lot to say. Loud and proud, and very silly, we definitely should be in a house without shared walls with neighbors in a quieter area. Not everyone loves what we have to say after all. You know those critics can be so harsh! We have met other mellow small dogs at Pixie as well as some kitties too and we don’t really mind. We may talk their ear off for a bit, but then it’s back to exploring the smells in the yard and practicing our acts. We like sitting on laps and getting lots of attention from our adult human pals. And of course we adore each other and will cuddle, snuggle, and groom each other in preparation for our big auditions. After all, it’s not everyday that you get to tryout for your forever family, so we must do everything to prepare! Anvils falling from the sky, silly voices, and roadrunners with dynamite, we will have it all in our Tiny Toons Adventure show! So fill out an application today to set up a meet with these two clowns. We come to you vaccinated, fixed, and micro-chipped with a total adoption fee of $350.

Here and gone in a flash! I am the fastest tiny terrier you have ever seen. And boy do I love to run around and get the zoomies! My name is Shyla and I am a 2 year old terrier weighing in about 10lbs. I have a lot of spunk and exuberance, and seem to always be ready and on the go. Though I am a little firecracker, I still am a bit sensitive and it takes me a little bit to warm up to new people. But once I do, it’s time to play! But of course with all that energy, sometimes I get a little too amped, so quiet break times with an interactive food toy or chewy will help me simmer down a bit, while also keeping my busy. I also really love playing with dog friends but can be a little pushy. So ideally I would have another dog friend in the home who will play with me, but also teach me some manners and when to take breaks. My fosters say that I try and play with the kitties too, but I sometimes think their swatting is funny. So if there is a kitty in the home, it would be best if they were dog savvy, confident and a bit younger who might want to engage in play with me. I can sometimes be a bit vocal, especially when I get amped or excited. Thus, I am looking for a house without shared walls with neighbors. I absolutely love the big spacious yard that my fosters have, and after 5 or 6 zoomies around the perimeter, it’s back to the house for a nap, snuggling by your side. I am looking for an active yet low foot traffic adult only home in the suburbs or somewhere a bit mellower than the busy inner city with a someone who has experience with the ways of the terrier. I am of course very smart and food motivated which makes training easy and fun for me! In fact, I enjoy my snuffle mat a lot, so I bet I would be a great candidate for some nose work which will help my busy mind. Spicy, silly, sensitive and sweet, I am ready to meet my forever friends today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, microchipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Oh hello there! Just waking up from the best afternoon nap. Ahh, so refreshing! I always have to catch up on my beauty sleep because you never know when the pupparazzi might strike. My name is Charlie and I make 13 years old look good. And fun too! At 9 lbs, I am silly and super sweet gent whose cute face is so adorable that everyone thinks I should be on all the magazine covers. Despite all the fans and popularity, I am quite the humble dude who enjoys the quiet life! Whether it’s burying myself in the blankets for a snooze or some cuddles, or if it’s enjoying the grass beneath my feet on my walks around the block, I am a simple guy who loves the simple things. My foster mom says that when I hear the word “outside” I just get so excited and wiggly. It is very cute! I can get a little overwhelmed by things like bicycles or loud trucks, so places like downtown are not ideal, and I would be much happier in a lower traffic area in town. I still sometimes like to play with toys and if you are sitting on the couch, I will set one down by your feet and look at you to throw it! The game doesn’t last very long but it is still super fun. I am very social and am happy to be around other mellow pups like myself. But I do tend to like to chase kitties sometimes, so none in my home please. I am still coming out of my shell more and more each day and greet new human friends over 12 with happy fully body wags. Sensitive, sweet and spry, I am just looking for a quiet retirement home full of snuggles, lots of love and some tasty treats too! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped with a dental scheduled at Pixie and recent bloodwork with an adoption fee of $350.

This handsome, smart, curious and playful Boo is a delight! He can also be very calm and likes to be held and cuddled and then he’ll spontaneously break out again in play. Boo would do best in a situation where he can have his playful and curious times and has a place he can climb up high and watch all that is going on. He’ll also snuggle up on the couch behind my desk or in a special corner in the closet for his nap times. 

He is an 11 month old neutered male, and up to date on rabies shot and is very healthy! At this kitten stage, he is learning and growing. He has made great strides and while there is still progress to be made, he would not be a best fit with young children in the home at his stage. Someone with experience in guiding kittens into adulthood would be ideal, along with some time each day to nurture that growth. 

Since he was born during the year of covid, he has not had much interaction with others, so he has a high stress response if a guest comes over. He’ll retreat to his favorite corner in the closet and then immediately returns to be with me once the guest leaves. I think that might be more about the world he’s known than necessarily a life long trait. Because of this high stress response, it will be best that Boo is the only pet in the home, at least initially. Once he is well adjusted and bonded, then an experienced owner might be able to introduce him to another pet successfully. But trying to adjust to a new home and another pet at the same time would be too stressful for him.

He’s never had an accident and uses his litter box very well. I clean it daily, so that helps keep it inviting. He lives now in a stress free environment. I’m going to be moving and can’t keep Boo, and I’d like to find him a stable home where he can bring you joy and also be happy and continue to grow! He would come complete with nice litter-box, a few toys he likes, and a cat carrier for vet visits. 

If Boo feels like a match for you, please reach out to Robin at mntclimber@outlook.com. Since he is shy when guests come over, we need to start out with a Zoom connection and you can see how he is with me

Spot-walla 3 legged tripod kitty is a ~5 year old fixed male. He is formerly stray and adapting smoothly to domestic life. Spotty is FIV+ and must be *indoors only*. Although he is FIV+ he is quite healthy and shows no sign of illness. He has a large appetite (he’ll even eat beans and avocado) and mostly lazes around. He enjoys his floor scratcher and playing with toys. He has perfect  litter box etiquette and does not if rarely “mark”. Spotty is a wild boy, but also loves to snuggle, purr and nap on your lap or bedside. No need to sugarcoat this little guy, he has a lot of love to give when he feels comfortable. His ideal living situation will be indoor only, calm environment, with loving and experienced cat owner(s) with a knowledge of FIV care,  plus vet check-ups every ~6 months. He has the ability to get along with other cats but they must be FIV+ as well and properly socialized/introduced. However he’d do best as the only cat and center of attention.

If you’d make a good forever home please contact Gwen at 503-830-9916 or ranunculaceae@gmail.com.

Meet Garth, the sweetest boy! He is a neutered male, 2 years old, domestic medium hair orange tabby in excellent health. He is microchipped, fully vaccinated and up to date on monthly flea & parasite control. We’re hoping to find him a home better suited to him. 
He’s a very high energy kitty and would love to be in a home with another young cat to play with him and bond with him.  He’d benefit from a companion (either feline or human) who has time to play and snuggle with him. He tries to snuggle with our older cat and dog, but they don’t tolerate his affections. He can be shy when he first meets people, but he warms up quickly and will be up on your lap & shoulder within a few days of meeting you, purring and asking for pets. He absolutely loves going outside for short adventures, but can’t be trusted around birds as he is an excellent hunter. He spends most afternoons curled up by a window – napping and watching the world go by. He may not do well in a home with an elderly cat who likes their own space or with young kids who may startle him. He’s also had a few urinary accidents around the home – but this is not a habit and he does well when his box is clean and the home is stress free. 

Please consider reaching out to set up a time to meet Garth! He deserves a loving home and has endless love to give in return. Contact: Brennen at 619-629-9188 or Fiona at 858-337-1694

Cora was a feral that showed up on our farm and took to living under a shed. She started attacking her tail, leaving it bloody and mangled so we live-trapped her and took her to the vet where she was diagnosed with Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome, a neurological disease where her nerves attack her so she attacks back. The initial prognosis was bleak. There’s no cure and her symptoms were severe. However, we didn’t want to give up on her so started her on high-quality (freeze-dried) cat food and medication, and moved her indoors. It took a while, but Cora started healing!

Cora’s transformation has been amazing! Her tail has healed completely and she no longer attacks it. She constantly purrs, loves to be pet, and loves to play with her catnip mouse and other toys. She really can’t get enough attention! She’s become such a sweet cat. The vet estimates that Cora is between 5-8 years old. She’s passed all her vet exams, is up on her shots, and her teeth look good. Aside from her FHS issue, she’s in great health. It’s assumed at this time that she will need to continue her medication and high-quality food to manage the FHS.

The perfect home for Cora would be a place that’s calm (probably no kids or other pets) and where she can live indoors. A fairly regular routine is also important as she needs her meds in the morning and evening every day. (The good news is that the medication is added to her food and she eats it without a problem!) Large, unexpected noises and movements scare her, but with a little patience, she will adjust to the right home and be a wonderful, loving companion.
