*THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY. PLEASE CONTACT NICOLE AT nicole.p.simmons@gmail.com FOR MORE INFO.*

Maisie here! I am a sweet shepherd mix who, despite being 80lbs, loves to spoon and snuggle! At about 5 years old, I am an active girl and love to play with other dogs once I get to know them. I need a slow introduction, but would love to have a calm doggie friend in my new home. Someone to help me learn, but also to be a companion and playmate. I love the idea of walks, but I can sometimes get overstimulated. I will need my human friend to continue to work with me on feeling comfortable as I walk by other dogs. Because I am still learning to walk, a home in a more rural area with large space to run and play would be ideal. I love kids, but sometimes I forget how big I am and would do best in a home with kiddos older than 14. My new home should be cat free – I love to chase them, but for some reason they don’t appreciate it! I really am the sweetest girl and would love to meet you!

I am micro-chipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccines! My re-homing fee is $200 and my current owner will fully reimburse this fee upon completion/proof of behavior modification training with a certified trainer. Please contact my mama, Nicole,  (nicole.p.simmons@gmail.com) to fill out an application.

Howdy! My name is Hannah, I’m a 7 year old Black Lab/Pit mix and I weigh in at about 50lbs. I’m a curious, intelligent, kind, cuddly pup and will take any opportunity to snooze either next to you or somewhere in the sun. I especially like showing off my tricks for your friends (but only if I’m getting a treat out of it)! I love to explore and sniff around the block. Sometimes, my mama has to hold me back from chasing squirrels, but I’m pretty leash-trained besides that. Some of my favorite things are: playing tug with you, going to the beach and swimming in the water, going on long walks, meeting new people, and taking naps all afternoon! But with any pup you meet, I have a story as well. I originally come from a woman who raised me since I was just a pup and I developed anxiety when I was 7 months old. I take two medications to help with my anxiety, and they usually keep me pretty stable. I’m also dog selective, meaning I really like sniffing and playing with some dogs, but other pups intimidate me and I get timid and on edge. I also love, love, love my owner SO much! With that, I need someone who can either desensitize my separation anxiety, or hang out with me all day!  I’d prefer a home with a stable routine, no small children, and an owned home in a quiet and peaceful area. If there is another dog in the home it would need to be a confident male dog companion around my size. I’ve had two wonderful owners, but am in need of a better environment so everyone (especially me) can thrive.
 
I come vaccinated, micro-chipped, and with all my food, medications, toys, and bed!
 
I’m hoping I can find my forever home, and my mama really wants to help out with that. If you are interested, she is best reached through email: mmccl2@pdx.edu
 
I hope you have a darn tootin’ goofin’ good day!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Voted cutest dog in all of Portland! Ok, well maybe the papers haven’t posted my handsome portrait just yet, but they just have to right?! My name is Rory and I am a 5-6 year old Lab mix weighing in around 75 lbs. Sure I am a big guy, but those who know we tell you that I am an even bigger goofball and that I have the biggest heart of them all! I am a very active and sporting type lab mix who could play ball all day every day for the rest of my life if someone was up to it! Ha! Though right now, I have to keep pretty rested as unfortunately I am heartworm positive. But Pixie is getting me all treated and fixed up and ready to find my new home! I just need a little down time to get healthy before I am able to get back to my spunky self again. I am looking for an owned home with some space since I am such a big and active fella. I do love to romp around with my dog buddies, but can sometimes be a little boisterous, so places like dog parks would be a bit too much for me. But I would absolutely love to have a doggy sister in my home to play with and who is a perfect fit for my playstyle. I have lived with cats just fine in the past, so a confident and dog savvy cat in the home would be just fine. I am a very affectionate and bouncy guy who is happy to be around my human pals 10 and up. Silly, energetic, and overall just a good boy looking to find my forever family today! Will it be you? Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $350. Interested in fostering me while I search for my home?

*Snoring*… Oh what? Sorry! Didn’t see you there. You caught me during my mid afternoon snooze. Oh it’s the evening, now? Well during this life of retirement, you can take a nap whenever you want! It’s the bees knees if you ask me. My name is Jasper and I am 11 pounds of adorableness. At 9 years old, I am all about that relaxing lifestyle. Snoozing, treats, and sunbathing are my go to daily activities. I do enjoy my neighborhood walks, but prefer a stroll in a quieter area away from all these young hooligans wanting to play with me at the park. I am a bit of a grumpy guy sometimes when it comes to first meeting other dog friends, but I am in foster with a mellow lady doggy pal and I really like her! We snuggle all the time! No kitties in my home please. I am not your average Chihuahua in that I am not a huge fan of being picked up. I would much rather do my thing and solicit the attention when I see fit. Thus, I am looking for an adult only owned home with someone who is ok with my independence. My favorite spot is the back of the couch where I watch the world go by.  It’s the little things that I enjoy the most. That small spot of sun in the living room. The smell of fresh food out of the oven. Watching the Golden Girls on the couch with you in the evenings. I love it all and can’t wait to share these special moments with my new family. 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.

Partial sun, a little bit of water, yummy treats to help with training, and lots of love is all that is needed to help this Ivy grow into her full potential! Hi everyone. My name is Ivy. What kind you ask? Well that is a good question! I am a total unknown mix, a hybrid of maybe some pitbull or doberman? But regardless of breed, at 12 weeks, I am a pretty big lady already and will most likely get to be around 50-60 lbs when full grown. But again, it is a total mystery! I am in a very important socialization stage in my puppyhood and I am going to require a lot of time and training to make sure I learn all about the world in a positive manner. PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION!! I am a total sweetheart with a love of toys and cuddling in your lap–and even at the same time! I of course still have some puppy manners I need to work on and because I need all the focus on me for a bit, I would do best in a home with kiddos over 5. I would need an owned home with a family who isn’t gone long periods of time, at least in the beginning, until I get a bit bigger and get on a regular potty routine. I am excellent with other doggies and am still getting used meeting kitties, so a dog savvy cat would be best in my home. Though just a little high maintenance in it’s younger days, watching this Ivy flower and blossom while sharing some adventures along the way is totally worth the extra effort! Loving, silly, sweet, and full of that puppy energy, I am ready to start out on life’s long and fun journey with a family of my own! 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 $450.

“All my friends know the low rider”…And that low rider is me! My name is Lil Dude and I am one happy go lucky and energetic 1 year old Basset hound mix weighing around 26 lb. Social and full of spunk, I am always happy to greet my admirers with a bounce and some kisses. Being a hound, I am a very active lad who still needs to work on some basic manners like jumping and puppy mouthiness. But of course I love me some food, so that will help me on my training journey! A TRAINING LESSON OR CLASS IS MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. With the propensity to be vocal during my excited times and my love of running around, I would do best in an owned home with some space to stretch my little legs. I really enjoy playing with my doggy friends, and they really help me not only learn, but also get that extra energy out that can’t really be satisfied with walks or playing fetch. So another female dog friend in the home who can handle my initial peppiness is needed! No kitties in my home please! With my cheery disposition, I am ready to say hi to everyone I meet out in the world, but would prefer to live in a home with older kiddos over 14. Silly and oh so entertaining, this “low rider is the one to meet!” Fill out an application today, so we can get started playing today! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

”Are you ready? Let’s do it! I’m a cute puppy. I’m a Texas gal. I’m a little bit sensitive and looking for my pal. I’m a little bit LA LA LA, a little bit Alexis!” My new hit single based on my favorite tv show song A Little Bit Alexis. So like, you want to know all about me, right? Well, let me give you all the gossip. As you can see, I’m downright gorgeous with my long locks of flowing hair! I am a 5 month old Shih Tzu pup weighing around 10lbs. Though I have a silly little personality once you get to know me, I haven’t yet had experience with meeting new people or socializing in general. Which means, the world is still pretty scary for me and even with appropriate training, I will still always have a part of me that will be a bit shy of new things. So, though I love attention from my favorite people, I am never going to be a doggy who would want to join you everywhere you go, or go to lots of events or parties. I am more of a -hang out at home, maybe meet up with some doggy friends and of course hanging in my room, posting non stop selfies of myself on Insta-kind of gal. Due to my sensitivities and need for extra training, I am looking for an adult only home with experienced adopters. *TRAINING CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION!* Because I am still learning potty and crate training, I need an owned home with someone who isn’t gone for full workdays. Just until I get a little bit older of course! I seem to really attach to doggy friends my size and love to try and play with them. So another small doggy companion might be great in helping me build some confidence! I am still unsure of kitties but act appropriately, so a kitty would be fine as well. Once I warm up, I am silly lady with a love of toys and being close to you for cuddles! Fill out an application so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $400.
