Hi there! My name is Dippin Dots, but you can just call me Dots for short.  The name you ask? Well it’s because I am such a sweet and adorable lady who is rolled up in a tiny package! At only 9 lbs, I am a petite 1-2 year old kitty who is continually coming out of my shell. Ever since I went into a foster home, I have really blossomed and as it turns out, I have some real kitten like energy! I like to run around the living room playing with my toys, but my favorite game is to playfully grab your feet to entice you to join in on the fun. My foster says I have the cutest little squeaky meow that always gets her attention! I have been around other cats before, so I think a slow intro with a cat savvy kitty would be just fine. I didn’t seem to phased by the dogs walking by when I am at Pixie, so a dog who is respectful of my space would be ok too. Funny and affectionate, I would do best in an indoor only set up with older kiddos over 12. Gorgeous and energetic, I am ready to have fun with my forever family today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $100.

Oh hi! My name is Gertie and I am the sweetest 13 yo Shih Tzu you have ever met! Which is saying something because I have been put through the ringer the past few years. I came from the South and was in pretty rough shape when I came to Pixie, including almost having no hair, but they got me all fixed up, and look at how gorgeous I look! Though I am a bit older, you wouldn’t have guessed it. I have fiery personality and still down for walks and playtime. I am not much of a hiker, but a short walk around the block is great. I do struggle a bit with stairs, so it would be best to have direct access to outside or at least only a few steps to manage. Overall, my fosters say I am very quiet and gentle, except for the occasional request of two to sit with you on the couch. They also say I am a great listener and very food motivated which helps with learning new things. Who says an old dog can’t learn new tricks? I am a very friendly gal, but do have some slight visual impairments and would do best in a home with older kiddos over 12. I do great with other dogs, but no kitties in my home please! Being very resilient, I am still on a few medications, but my bloodwork keeps getting better and better. And I honestly feel great! Sassy and hilarious, I am ready to retire into my forever home today. Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped with recent dental and bloodwork, with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! It is such a pleasure to meet you. My name is Stevie and I am came all the way from Guam to find my forever home here in the beautiful PNW. At 3 years old and 45 lbs, I was found in the jungle with eye injuries which blinded me and in the end, my eyes did have to be removed. I have been without them for awhile now, so I rely a lot on sound to help me get around and find my friends. With such a long flight and coming to a very urban setting, I was pretty nervous at the shelter, but being very polite and sweet, they knew if I was in a foster home it might help me open up more. And boy were they right! I think the downtown life still would be too much for me, but urban neighborhoods would be just fine as long as my new home has another dog friend to hang with. I do great with all dogs and people I meet! In fact, if I can hear someone enter the room, I will instantly play bow. It’s pretty darn adorable! Since I can still get a bit startled since I can’t see you, I would do best in a home with older kiddos over 10. Being around the other dogs in my foster home, not only did it help me blossom, but I have so much fun playing with them as well. My foster says I am very smart, taking to new surroundings fairly quickly and that I am overall a very quite boy. They haven’t heard a single bark the entire time I have been there. They have some nice property out of town a bit that  I love to free roam and explore, and say that I am overall just a really easy going guy who would be happy to live in a home with kiddos over 10. I am just a sweet and sensitive soul who is ready to play and cuddle with my new family today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Why hello! They call me Wobbles. Why you ask? Because I am such a happy guy that I sway a little bit when I walk. Life is too good not to dance a little, you know?! I am an adorable 8 year old Cocker Spaniel weighing about 20 lbs. I am an easy going guy who is all about chill vibes. My fosters say I am a professional day napper and enjoy my cuddles from my favorite human pals over 10. After my morning breakfast, I am down for a short walk around the block and then it’s back to napping. I do get very excited to be around my dog pals, and seem happier with one around. In fact, my fosters say I really opened up when I met some pup friends at the lake house last weekend and so a doggy sibling is much preferred! I even do well with kitties and chickens too. Overall, I am in great shape, though my vision is definitely better than my hearing. Which means things like doorbells and loud noises don’t really affect me in anyway. I am a pretty social and bomb proof pup who is just happy to be around my people and dog friends. As an older gent, I do need to go outside fairly frequently, so having direct access to outside like a house with a backyard is ideal. As well as someone who isn’t gone long work hours. Loving and oh so sweet, I am a go with the flow kind of guy ready to settle into my forever home today. Fill out an application to set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi there! My name is Nermal and I am a very quiet and sweet 5 year old lady cat that is looking for my forever family. I am just a tad bit shy at first, but it doesn’t take long for me to relax and start purring away whenever someone offers me some gentle attention. I have been through a lot of transition and instability in my life, and am looking for a permanent, quiet home where I can relax for the rest of my days. Oh, and a loving person, too! I just adore people once I open up and will be a fabulous companion for an experienced person (or persons) that enjoys soft fur, lots of purrs, and gorgeous green eyes. I can still get playful at times and have a few favorite little balls and mice that I chase around. I also enjoy watching birds and squirrels out the window, and have chased some bugs inside for my foster! I have lived around other kitties before, but really want to be your one-and-only. I have been around cat savvy pups and don’t mind hanging out with them though! Though I am not really a lap cat, my foster says I am still very affectionate and  I weave around her legs as she walks around my room. I’ll even lean into cheek scratches for ages. She says I get better every day at cuddling. I am excited to find my forever family and look forward to meeting you soon!  Fill out an application to set up a meet with me! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

Hey there! I am M&M! I’m a handsome brown and white tabby boy that is around 4 years old and easy to love! I’m a quiet, polite guy that is very mellow and happy to entertain myself if you have work all day, and also happy to see you when you get home. Though I look a little bit like a tough-guy, I am very sweet and enjoy nice head scratches. I am a pretty mellow fellow and am great with new people. Though I am incredibly gentle, a quieter space with older kiddos may be ideal for me. I might take awhile to adjust to a mellow cat savvy dog, but when they pass through the lobby at Pixie, I don’t really pay attention. I’m used to the indoor lifestyle and am perfectly content to lounge around in an apartment. Since I am positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which just means that I will need to be an indoor-only cat and that I will need to have regular vet exams to ensure that I stay healthy and happy. Cats with FIV can live long and healthy lives just like other cats, and do not need regular medication or special food. For more information on FIV, check out this article from the Cornell Feline Health Center:  http://www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc/Health_Information/brochure_fiv.cfm.
Despite my FIV status, I’m currently a healthy kitty, and I am ready for my forever home! I may be a little shy at first while I adjust, but I am great with new people now that I have settled in at Pixie. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance lover like me, I hope you’ll fill out an application to meet me soon! I come to you fixed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped for an adoption fee of $100.

“Thank you for being a friend.” Cue the Golden Girls theme song for this lovely lady. My name is Helen and I am a sweet 10 year old Hound mix weighing around 60lbs. You might remember me being with my sister Ethel. Well it turns out she was a bit of a bully to me, so we had a trial separation apart. Turns out we blossom a lot better individually and are much happier, so we weren’t as bonded as they initially thought. Being very affectionate, I am all about the attention, pets and snuggles too. My ideal day would consist of a brisk walk in the morning, followed by a delicious breakfast, and then some couch time to watch our afternoon soaps. Followed by some sunbathing in the yard, and nice evening walk, and more comfy couch time while we watch some Turner Classic Movies. With my dog pals, I do best with mellow pups like myself. No kitties in our home please! Happy go lucky and always smiling, I am a resilient lady with a heart of gold. Because we are hounds, we sometimes like to talk, so apartment living isn’t for us, and a home without shared walls with neighbors is ideal. Silly and delightful, my heart is true. Will you be my pal and confidant? Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated. microchipped, and spayed with recent dental and bloodwork for a total adoption fee of $350. Interested in fostering me while we look for my forever home? Email info@pixieproject.org for more details.
