Did my sweet soulful eyes reel you in? They tend to do that. But don’t let my serious face fool you as I am quite the goofy and energetic lady! The name is Mavy and I am a 3 yo Shepherd/Hound mix weighing around 50 lbs. Hailing from the South, the city is all new to me and I am still figuring it all out. Since things with a lot of movement like skateboards, bicycles, and the streetcar can be a little nerve wrecking for me, I would prefer an owned home in a quieter suburban or rural setting. I am a very social gal full of bounces and wiggles. I am a sensitive lady though and would need an adult only home. Though I am an adult, I still have a lot of puppy like tendencies, and just need to learn some of the basics with the help of tasty treats. I absolutely adore playing with my toys and am still working on the fetch it part, but I am getting the hang of it! With my dog pals, I can get overwhelmed by really in your face pups, and would prefer a mellow but playful pal my size or bigger to hang with. No kitties in my home please! Sweet, silly, and spunky, I am ready to romp and play with you today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet! I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello Hello! My name is Ruth and I am a sweet and adorable 2 yo husky mix. Weighing only around 37 lbs, I am a petite gal with a big heart ready to share my love with you today. Being a young gun, I am a very energetic lady who would love to join you on neighborhood walks or hikes out in Mount Hood! But what I enjoy most of all is romping around with my doggy pals and thus I do need another doggy sibling in my home. I can get a little overexcited at first, so I need a male doggy my size or bigger who is still playful but is mature and can teach me some play manners. Speaking of manners, I could use some of the basics, but I am a fast learner who is eager to please and am already getting the hang of “sit”! When it comes to my human pals over 12, once I have a chance to know you, I am a very wiggly and appeasing gal. I can be a tad shy, especially with men, and am overall a sensitive lady. With some tasty treats and patience, I eventually come around and am ready to be your best friend. Though I have lived in the city, places right downtown or on busy streets are still a tad overwhelming and I would need an owned home in a quieter neighborhood. Being the playful pup that I am, I really enjoy fetch with my favorite squeaky toys and tennis balls! I seem to do ok with kitties and have met Pixie’s office cat, so a dog savvy cat in the home would be ok. Funny, cute, and full of wiggles, I am ready to get adventuring 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.

Hola! Soy Dora. Are you ready to go on an adventure? I know I am! At 1.5 years old, I am a young Shepherd mix with lots of energy who is ready to go go go. I would be the perfect companion to join you on all your Pacific Northwest explorations. Whether it’s a trip to the beach, a hike, camping in the woods, or just a run or stroll around the neighborhood, I am excited to be with my people over 12! Being a young pup, I could still learn some of the basics. But it should be pretty easy because I am a fast learner who is also very treat motivated! I absolutely adore my doggy friends my size and wouldn’t mind a playful companion in the home. I can be a little forward and pushy, so a doggy who can handle my “in your face” romps is important. I am a little too into chasing kitties, so no cats in my home please. Being from the South, though apartment life isn’t for me, I seem to have adapted well to city life and am looking for a home owned by my adopters. Bouncy, silly and full of spunk, I am ready to get to exploring today. Vamonos! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Sparkling, bubbly and sweet as a peach, this refreshing Bellini is all you need! At 10 years old and around 11 lbs, I am an adorable and snazzy Papillon-pomchi mix. You might notice I like to smile and it’s no secret that I am always a happy girl spreading joy wherever I go. I am always eager to meet new friends on the street, and in the home, I would do best with kiddos over 12. Though sometimes I seem a bit aloof, cuddling is my favorite activity and I love to snuggle real close on the couch while we watch some our favorite shows! Outside, I am a very easy walker and enjoy light neighborhood strolls. Overall, I am a pretty healthy lady! Just some classic senior doggy stuff like a few missing teeth and a foggy eye, but those things don’t bother me at all. Just mean I get more of that yummy wet food! I am in foster with other doggies and do great with mellow pups like myself, and wouldn’t even mind a kitty in my home. Overall, I am just a wonderful and mellow gal ready to be your best friend and companion! Let’s toast to our new life together today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Are you cuckoo for Cocopuffs? How about an adorable tiny chocolate chihuahua puff? At around 5 years old and 10lbs, my big brown eyes are soulful and caring, just like me! Coming from the South, I am eager to find my forever home filled with lots of loves and tasty treats. I am a fairly independent gal who likes to be around my favorite adult friends only, but I am not really needy and prefer next to you on the couch or the dog bed instead of your lap. I like attention, but don’t really need to be slathered in affection. Really just having a companion to hang out with is what makes me a happy gal! I can sometimes be a bit vocal when I get excited so I would do best in a quiet owned home versus an apartment with shared walls. My fosters say I am not really a morning person and after breakfast, it’s right back into the covers and blankets to catch some more zzz’s. My fosters also have a kitty and other doggies that I don’t mind being around. In fact, since I can sometimes be a little sensitive in new situations, having a confident and mellow doggy friend in the home, could help me blossom as well! They say I am an excellent house guest with great manners, and overall am just a really loving doggy. Though I can take some time to warm up, I really do desire companionship and open up quickly. Silly and utterly delightful, throw away that sugary breakfast cereal because I am the only sweet Cocopuff you really need! Fill out an application today, so we can meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Today is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving that is providing emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Pixie is trying to help any way we can–we’re providing food and supplies to pet owners who are out of work and helping with medications and veterinary care to keep people from having to surrender their pets during the crisis. For people who are sick, losing housing, or who aren’t able to keep their pets even with Pixie providing resources and support, we’re helping to find new homes for the affected pets through our rescue program. With other shelters reducing services for the public, the need for surrender and critical care will only grow.

Please give, if you’re able. You can donate through our website or check out our Amazon Wish List. Thank you. #GivingTuesday
