Big ears, big heart and an even bigger personality! Hi everyone. My name is Rico and I am a hilarious 7 year old Dachshund mix weighing in at 15 lbs. Having classic doxie traits, I am a goofy, boisterous, excitable and vocal guy who is always down for a good time! Always happy with my tail a wagging, I am definitely into toys or romping around with my doggy friends. No kitties in my home please! Being from rural Texas, I am not used to all this traffic and so I tend to get a little barky at passing cars in busy areas. Thus, I am looking for a house in a quiet suburb or area where I won’t have to deal with heavy traffic and neighbors won’t mind me being a bit talkative at times. I am a very social guy with my people friends overall, but prefer to be in an adult only home.  I enjoy scritches and cuddles, and will happily join you in the blankets to get nice and cozy. I would be ok with walks in quiet areas with someone who can help me practice my leash skills, and I bet I would enjoy hikes since I am a social guy. Plus, there aren’t any big scary trucks on hiking paths! Silly, hilarious, and so stinkin cute, I am just Mr. Congeniality looking to play in my forever home today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.  Interested in fostering me? Email info@pixieproject.org

Hello! My name is Judy and I am a silly and gorgeous 1 year old yorkie/terrier gal weighing in around 15 lbs. When I first came to Pixie, I was pretty shy and it has taken me some time to come out of my shell. Though I still take a second to warm up to new people, I have already blossomed quite a bit and the staff have seen me become more playful with time! In fact, I have even made some dog friends that have helped me see that playing is a lot of fun. I can still get overwhelmed by puppy like “in your face” pups and am not one for the dog parks, but I do really enjoy some romp time with the mellow friends I have made at Pixie. Another confident doggy in the home might even help me gain even more confidence too! I really enjoy my daily walks, but the downtown traffic can be kind of intense. Thus, I am looking for a home in a bit of a quieter neighborhood that is lower traffic. I am not particularly vocal but I can be a little sensitive to things like loud noises or high activity areas, and though an apartment complex would not be ideal, a nice quiet duplex or townhouse would be great. Since I am a still a bit timid, older kiddos over 12 would be best in my future home. I met the office kitty at Pixie and to be honest, I was pretty terrified of her. I would most likely enjoy a cat free home, but I would be ok if it is a dog savvy cat who won’t bully me or try and play with me. I absolutely adore my human friends who I have warmed up to, and there is definitely a snuggly side of me! TRAINING CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. All I need is a little time, patience, and lots of treats and in return, I will give you lots of love and we can have lots of fun times! Fill out an application today so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi! Hello! I am so excited to meet you! I just love people so much-full of lots of treats and pets. It’s the best of both worlds! My name is Tzatzi (Zatzi) and I am an energetic and lovable 7 year old Chocolate Lab gal weighing in at 58lbs. I am a bit different than your normal couch potato dopey lab and instead am a very high energy sporty lady who is ready to go hiking or running or maybe even some agility! Just call me Sporty Spice! Sure, I am eventually a snuggly gal-at the end of a long day of activity of course! I really enjoy attention and affection from my human pals over 10, and will happily ask for extra scratches behind the ear or play fetch in the backyard. I can take a minute to warm up to new dog friends and though I am not a dog park dog, I would be ok with a confident mellow pup in the home. No kitties in my home please! Because I am so energetic and active, I am really looking for a house in the suburbs or somewhere I can have some space to stretch my legs. Bouncy and full of slobbery kisses, I am all gas no brakes and ready to roll on our next big adventure! Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated and microchipped with an adoption fee of $350. Interested in fostering me while I find my forever home? Email info@pixieproject.org

My name is Frieda, and I’m a 5-year-old fluffy girl with a confident, quirky personality that’s sure to make you smile! Even when I’m in a new environment, I love to explore my space and sit on the window sill and watch the world outside. I’m a social girl that very much enjoys company and meeting new people, and I’ll happily sit and nap beside you or curl up next you at bedtime. I also love to play! My favorites are feathers, string and hunting little mouse toys. I’m used to being an indoor kitty, though I’m such a curious and playful girl that the more space I can have, the better! A small apartment might make me feel a little cooped up, but I’m absolutely fine being entirely indoors. When I’m excited or looking for attention I will politely chirp — it’s quite cute! I enjoy lots of chin scratches, head bumps, and brushing, which helps keep my coat looking gorgeous. I do tend to like most touching and handling on my own terms, however, and will give a gentle chirp or claw-less swat when I’m feeling “done”. As I get more comfortable, these warnings become less often — however, I would do best in a home without little kids and with someone who appreciates a teeny bit of sass in their cat! I’m impeccable with the litter box and love my cat scratcher, and am an overall easy kitty. I do eat a special Urinary food to prevent the build up of crystals, and am currently healthy with no meds or anything else needed at this time. I love my special food, so am very easy to please! I’m not a big fan of other animals, so a home where I could be the only pet is preferred. Do you think I could be your new best friend? I hope so! Fill out an application to meet me soon! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Hi everyone! My name is Bailey and I am a sweet 6-7 yo Husky/Shepherd mix weighing in at 85lbs. Though I am a big gal, I am a very soft and affectionate with a sweet personality! Overall calm and easy going, I can still be active and do enjoy going for daily walks. I am a bit sensitive and can get nervous of heavy traffic, so I would do best in an owned home in a quieter neighborhood. Some things are very new to me, such as stairs and whatever this ramp thing is at Pixie. But I am very food motivated and it didn’t take the girls long to help me realize the stairs aren’t so scary. I am not a huge player with toys and I would much rather cuddle up with you on the couch as we turn on some of our favorite Halloween classics. I am just an old soul that way! I am a very social gal overall and would do best in a home with kiddos over 10. No kitties in my home please! In my previous living situation, I was living with a few mellow dog friends that were fun to hang out with. Plus, I have met some new friends at Pixie as well, so another mellow dog friend in the home would be just fine by me. Overall, I am just a sweet lady with lots of love that I am eager to share with my new family. Fill out an application today so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello friends! My name is Professor Farley McSnaggletooth and I am here to teach you all about love and companionship while having silly adventures along the way! I am a mature 11 yo Chihuahua mix weighing around 12 lbs with a big heart. My thesis paper, “Using your Voice to Grab Human’s Attention” has been a big hit with fellow dog pals after being published in The Bark and Woof journal. But new evidence shows that the more I use my voice, the less attention I receive, and thus I get bored, and then decide to move onto my next paper. Something about the mental health benefits of sunbathing will do. After all, I do this on the daily anyways! Being a mellow guy, I do still have my playful side. Have to be with it and hip for all the youngsters! When I don’t have an audience, it can make me a little blue, so I am looking for someone who isn’t gone long work days and who has another mellow dog friend who will listen to my lectures which vary from “ways to reach that itch” and “what exactly is a rope toy and how is it fun?” No kitties in my home please! I can take a second to warm up as I still get a little stage fright from time to time, so I would do best in an adult only quiet home owned by my adopters. At the end of a long day of talking, I am always ready to snuggle up to you on the couch as we watch some movies and catch some zzz’s. Silly, sweet, and one of a kind, fill out an application today so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Beans, Beans they’re good for you heart, having them around is really smart! Hehe. I think that’s how that goes, right? My name is Chili Bean and I am tiny 8 lb Chihuahua mix. At 8 years old, I prefer the quiet life and one of my favorite activities is catching some of those summertime rays in the backyard. I am a shyer guy who takes a little time to warm up to new people and environments. But someone who has patience and goes slow, will see a happier and relaxed me in time! Plus, beans always are better as a side dish combo and not a la carte, so a smaller confident dog my size will also help me blossom! I am not into playing with my foster doggy siblings just yet, but I do love playing follow the leader for sure!  I seem to be pretty scared of kitties, so I could potentially live with a kitty who wouldn’t bully  me and just give me my space. Since I am more of a hang at home in the backyard kind of guy, I am looking for a companion who isn’t into doing activities or going on walks or visiting lots of places. I am more of a sipping ice tea in a rocker on the back porch kind of gent! Thus, I am also needing an adult only owned home with some outdoor space I can stretch my legs in. My foster mom says I do great in my crate and that I am just starting to show interest in playing with toys, so maybe you can help teach me this fetch thing that is all the rage? Quiet and mouse like, sensitive but sweet, I am the little bean you want to meet! Fill out an application today. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered for an adoption fee of $350.

Turn up the DEVO, grab your dome hats, and get ready to “whipp-et, whipp-et good!” My name is Sammy and I am a very handsome 10 month old Whippet weighing in at 35lbs. Though my sleek and slender frame gives me a look of elegance and grace, I am really still a goofy bouncing off the walls full of energy puppy! I am just beginning to learn some of the basics when it comes to training and would love to continue practicing. Thus, TRAINING CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION! My fosters say I’m not a huge fan of the crate and with some positive training I am getting used to it. But since I sometimes sing a sad little number when you are gone, I would do best in an owned home. They say I am a very excellent walker and love to play fetch more than anything in the world! Well…that may be a tie with chasing kitties, so no cats in my home please. I am very polite with other doggies though and always enjoy meeting new friends! Some I play with and some I just hang with, and if I ever get overwhelmed, I will just walk away. I am very much a socialite with my human friends over 8 and as soon as we meet, I instantly want to cuddle! Who doesn’t love all that attention?! Overall I am a fun dude looking for an active family who can help me get the mental and physical exercise I need. Plus lots of pets, treats and belly rubs too! Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered with an adoption fee of $400.
