Hello! My name is Bleu and I am a handsome 9 year old pitbull weighing in around 55 lbs. Everywhere I go I instantly get all the attention! I will be walking down the street and suddenly all I hear is ” who is that blue-tiful pitopotamus?”, “who’s that snuggly velvet burrito?”, “who is that cutie with the silly ears”? They love me. They adore me. And what can I say…I love them too!  Whether it be those other pups, dog savvy kitties or kiddos over 12 too, I am always eager to greet you with some tail wags and silly puppy like bows. I enjoy my daily walks and am excellent on leash, and looking for a house set up with some space for my beefy full body happy wiggles. Though I have to say that I am not a fan of this cold weather! I came to Pixie with some pretty severe allergies that affected my skin, eyes, and ears. But my foster mom has been amazing and has helped me narrow down an ideal food that helps me be less itchy! Even though I look and feel much better, there will still need to be some regular allergy maintenance of baths and ear cleanings, as well as continuing on the special food that I do best on. Email the Pixie gals for more details! Always happy and eager for some pets, nothing seems to get me down, and I can’t help but have a smile on face. I have a history of being crate trained and seem to know some of the basics, but I am also a smart cookie and very food motivated which makes learning more that much easier! My foster says I love my daily massages and am definitely a couch potato with a love of snuggling up next to you in bed. I have an occasional burst of energy and like to play with my toys. But it only lasts a few minutes and then it’s back to the couch! Excitable and always happy go lucky, I am sweet boy looking for that perfect cuddle buddy! Will it be you?! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello Hello! My name is Chloe and I am a silly 2 year old Chihuahua mix weighing in around 8 lbs. I may be small but my personality is mighty! I am a spunky loud and proud gal who can be very silly. When I first came to my foster home, I wasn’t much of a snuggler or player, and was more of a just an independent lady doing my own thing. But after some time, I am finally starting to come out of my shell a bit, and will even play with the other doggies. I am even starting to break out the cuddles too! I am still am not crazy into play and can sometimes be a little selective with my friends, so calmer dogs my size are my best companions. Or I would be happy to be your shining star as well! I met the office kitty a few times and didn’t seem too phased her, though I may want to chase a little in the beginning, so slow intros are key! I do have a luxating patella that Pixie will be doing surgery on, so I may need to keep it calm and relaxed during post op care, but after that, I will be ready to go go go! Since I can sometimes be pretty chatty, I would do best in a home that don’t share walls with neighbors. I can get a little overwhelmed by all the traffic too, so a quieter more suburban area would be ideal. I am generally eager to meet new people, but can sometimes take a minute to come around. Thus, I am looking for a quiet adult only home. Hilarious, boisterous, and very cute, I am ready to blossom even more in my forever home today! Fill out an application to set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

  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? Email info@pixieproject.org!

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.
