  1. Did you say play? Oh boy! What are we playing? When can we start? Oh I am so excited!! My name is Stella and I am a gorgeous, energetic and crazy smart 1 year old German Shepherd weighing about 55 lbs. Everyday I am full of spunk and wiggles, and love getting out that extra energy by running around with my dog pals. I would also jump at the opportunity for neighborhood walks, runs, or just playing fetch in the back yard! Still working on the drop it part of course, but I am very food motivated and as sharp as a tack, so I am sure I will get the hang of it fairly quickly. In fact, I am still learning a lot of the basics and so A TRAINING CLASS/LESSON IS REQUIRED FOR MY ADOPTION! Because I am still learning a lot and have a lot of young dog energy, I really need the focus to be on me for a little bit while I get the hang of things. I am looking for an adult only house with German Shepherd experience that can provide me with an outlet both mentally, with some training and interactive food toys, and physically as well. Heck, I bet I would even love to do some backyard agility or nose work too! Like I said before, I am always down for some romp time with my doggy friends, but I am a little too boisterous for cats, so none in my home please. I am a happy girl who is eager and  ready to go on many adventures with my forever companion. With lots of treats, belly rubs and toys along the way! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, microchipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Did someone order a grande Cappuccino and a tall Latte? Well here we are! The perfect little espresso beans here to make sure you have a brew-tiful day! We are both chihuahua terrier mixes with Latte being 7 years old and 8lbs, whereas I, Cap, am 12 years old and 16lbs. We are like two coffee beans in a pod and are looking for a home together. Being quiet and sensitive, we are looking for a mellow adult only household with someone who loves cuddling as much as we do! I am always eager to run up and greet you, though Latte can take a second to warm up to the optimal temperature. We are both into snuggles and would probably enjoy walks in  a low traffic area or running around in a fenced yard. Because of all the espresso, sometimes we can get a little chatty, so a home without shared walls with neighbors would be ideal. We have met some doggy friends here at Pixie and in my foster home, and we both warm up to them just fine. No kitties in our home please! Other than me needing a little weight loss, we are both in good shape and have been fixed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and even had routine dentals! Coffee and friends are the perfect blend, so fill out an application for us today. Our total adoption fee if $350. Want to foster us while we wait for our forever home?

Bruce Campbell’s the name — and like my namesake, I’m a big, handsome lug that’s ready to retire. I’m about 11-years-old and after a decade of B-grade movie making, I can’t wait for my final act with my future forever family. Meal time and nap time are the best times of the day, and make for a very exciting life! I am close to 20 pounds, so I take my treats very seriously. I also enjoy lap-time, tucking my foster in bed at night before venturing off to nighttime shenanigans, and belly rubs when I’m feeling really comfortable. Being such a handsome guy often draws a lot of attention from adoring fans, but I’m really a bit of a sensitive celebrity and appreciate the respect of being able to seek attention out on my own terms. When I’m feeling up for it, I’m happy to make a Zoom appearance and give lots of snuggles if you work out of your home like so many people do these days! I need a quiet, understanding home where I can have time to blossom and become cuddly with my one person, and where I can be the only kitty in the household. My foster mom has a dog and while I’ve tolerated him alright, my ideal home would have me as your one-and-only four-legged friend. I’m used to being an indoor-only kitty and would do just fine in an apartment, and would really thrive with someone who has cat experience and will understand me for the special boy that I am. I will reward you with big, soft belly rubs and snuggles once we’ve had that time to bond and become best friends — sound like a good trade? I think so! Pixie has run blood work to make sure I’m in good health and I’ve already had a dental cleaning, so I am overall low-maintenance and all ready to find my new home! Think I’m the perfect fit for the role of Star Cat in your life? Fill out an application to meet me today! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, microchipped (and with recent blood work and dental already done) for an adoption fee of $80.

Who is that adorable doggo with the cute permanent puppy face? Well that handsome gent is me, Blaze! And believe it or not, at 33lbs, I am actually closer to 2 years old though my looks and personality remind most of a young puppy. I am a pretty energetic lad who LOVES being around my other dogs friends my size or bigger. Especially those big old labs I love wrestling around with in my foster. I could play with them for hours! I am still learning when to take breaks, so I might be too annoying for older dogs. So a confident dog friend who likes to play but can also teach me some manners would be ideal and needed in my home! When I first arrived at Pixie from Texas, the hustle and the bustle of inner city living was just so overwhelming and I wasn’t a fan of going outside. Thus, a house in a quieter low traffic neighborhood or suburb can help me gradually practice my leash skills and just be more comfortable for me overall. Having another dog as the leader, really helps me open up since I can be a sensitive guy at first, so being able to watch them confidently roll down the street may help me come out of my shell as well!  Being a Beagle mix, I do love those tasty treats, which will help with my basic training. TRAINING CLASSES/LESSONS ARE REQUIRED FOR MY ADOPTION! I am pretty quick to open up to my human friends over 12 and am instantly a bouncy ball of energy ready to play. Cute, sensitive, and silly, I am eager to find my family and starting playing with my new doggy sibling today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Greetings friends! They call me Old Uncle Henry! But don’t let the name fool you. They just call me that because I have an old soul as I love to listen to smooth jazz, play BINGO, and take long naps on the couch. At 8 years old and 113 lbs, I am big fellow with an even bigger heart who absolutely loves being with his favorite people. As you can see, my back legs don’t work 100% correctly and I tend to trip over myself sometimes, but the vet says it is due to a neurological issue which just means that I won’t have any further complications from it down the road. It instead just makes me extra special! I can still walk around my foster’s house just fine and sometimes need an occasional boost up a stair or two, and thus I would definitely need an owned home and would have a hard time in apartment style setting. Things like long walks or hikes would also be difficult for me and not really my style. In fact, a few houses up and back is all the exercise I need for the day and then its back to snuggle times with you on the couch. I seem to really light up when around my animal friends and get along just fine with my foster’s kitty and also met a few Pixie dogs that I get playful with! In fact, I would love to have a mellow furry friend in my home to keep me company. I am a very friendly guy with everyone I meet, but I can sometimes be a little wobbly and unsteady, so a home with kids 12 and up would be best. Being a goofy guy, I am down to play here and there, but ultimately I am all about those snuggles as we watch some of my favorite black and white classics on the telly. Giant and sweet, I just can’t wait for us to meet! Fill out an application today. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Oh hi! My name is Rufus though they call me Rufus the Goofus because I am just a silly and lovable gent! At 10 years young and 55lbs, I am still a very playful Lab/Cattledog mix with a love of pets and an extreme love of food and tasty treats!! I am a happy guy eager to meet my human pals and other doggies too. In the home, I would prefer to live with kiddos over 15 and because I am little too interested in kitties, no cats in my home please! Though I am still quite spunky, I do have some old man hips and with the help of some pain meds, I have been feeling great. But I would probably have a hard time in a home with a lot of stairs, so a place with easy access to outside would be better for me. And though I would still probably try and go on 5 mile hike, short walks would be more ideal. I do still enjoy playing with my toys, with my favorite being two ball fetch!  I am still working on the “drop it” part, but with me being pretty food motivated, I will be easy to train! And forget what they say about not being to teach an old dogs new tricks. It’s a total lie and with your help, I can show you all that an old dog can actually do! I am an easy going chap who is very friendly and always down for some hang time with my favorite peeps! So let’s get to chillaxing and relaxing together today. Fill out an application so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.
