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

Hi! Hello! Are you ready to play? I sure am! My name is Chloe and I am a beautiful 1 year old Cattle dog mix weighing just 30lbs. With a spring in my step and a mind as sharp as a tack, I am a special gal looking for an experienced owner to teach me some new tricks! It can take a little for me to warm up to my new adult friends, especially men, but once I do, I am full of hugs and kisses. I can be a lot when it comes to meeting new dogs friends and not every pup loves my play style, but I have made a few friends in my foster that I really get along with. And they have thought me some nice manners! When I am not running around the play yard with my doggy pals, I enjoy playing fetch with some toys or playing other interactive food toys that help stimulate my active mind. I bet I would even love to do some fun nose work exercises if you could teach me! I am a rural gal through and through, so downtown city life isn’t for me and I would much rather run around some property than do walks in the city. I would need an experienced owned home in a low traffic neighborhood and outside the city would be ideal. I also would need an adult only home with no kids ( including future kiddos) or cats, but do need a confident adult male dog in the home who could keep up with me! Even after a day of activity,  I still love to curl up on the couch with you while we eat some popcorn and watch some movies. Smart, bubbly, very energetic, and oh so gorgeous, I am ready to play with you today! Fill out an application, so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hi there! My name is Annabelle and I am a sassy and utterly adorable 7 yo Pom-chi weighing 9 lbs. If you are looking for snuggler who needs you as much as you need them, well I am your gal! I love being around my adult human pals, especially when they give me lots of skritches and belly rubs. My foster family says I am very coy and smart, and will do just about anything for some tasty treats! I will even hang out under your feet when you are cooking to make sure I catch any tasty morsels that might fall to the ground. I can be a little bit picky with my doggy friends, and have lived with a doggy my size in the past. He was very chill and mellow though, and that is more of my style. None of this puppy like energy business! I didn’t seem to pay too much attention to the office cat at Pixie, so a confident dog savvy kitty in the home would be ok. As long as I can be the one that gets to sleep in your lap during movie night, I am a happy camper. I can sometimes be a little vocal when I express myself and tend to get overwhelmed by lots of outside noises in busy areas, so I would do best in a low traffic owned home in a quiet neighborhood. I always like to follow my nose when I am out on my daily walks, sniffing out the next adventure. But then it’s back inside for some more cuddle time under the warm blankets! Silly, inquisitive, and oh so sweet, I am so ready to find my forever person today. Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello everyone! Did my deep soulful eyes draw you in? My name is Lucius and at 5 years old and 38 lbs, I am a Southern gent looking for my forever family here in the PNW. They say I am a lab mix, but the Pixie gals have noticed that on my walks, I am all about sniffing and love to follow my nose. So there might be some hound dog in there as well! I am on the shyer side and a bit under confident, but with patience and a few tasty treats, I am ready to open up and you can tell I am eager to bond. Being on the sensitive side, I would do best in an adult only home. When I open up, I am still a pretty mellow fellow, but  occasionally the staff will see me get excited over toys and play! Because I sometimes have the tendency to be a little vocal, I would do best in an owned home in a low traffic area. Though I get overwhelmed by places like dog parks, I would be ok with a confident adult female doggy companion who can show me how to blossom and give me the confidence boost I need! No kitties in my home please. I am just a sweet, sensitive boy looking for a quiet home to call my own and get lots of pets and treats!  Fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Bonjour! Je M’appelle Gigi! Totally adorable and weighing just around the size of a croissant, I am a tiny 10 yo Chihuahua at just 4lbs. Fancy is my middle name and I take great pride in knowing all the latest fashion styles coming out of Paris. Though it can be a challenge to find things in my size, it’s not hard for me to look cute in absolutely everything! Everyone I meet says that I am a complete angel-and they aren’t lying! I am very sweet and affectionate gal who knows what I want and am happy to communicate that to you. For example, I love being with my favorite adult human pals but I don’t necessarily want to be picked up or sit on your lap. I would rather just chill next to you. I’m not an athlete and if we are going for a walk, I would much rather join you safely secured in a doggy backpack or bjorn. What can I say? I love the life of luxury! Most the time, I am a napping kind of gal but have known to get the playful zoomies from time to time. I have grown up around other dogs and mostly just ignore them. Same goes for those kitties too, so I would be ok with either in my home. Since I love being with my favorite people, I would do best in an owned home with someone who isn’t gone for long work days. My fosters say I am a truly happy and silly gal with excellent house manners, and the ability to brighten the darkest corner of any room. With my cute and hilarious antics, everyone just adores me. It’s just not hard to fall in love with these angel eyes! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350. Au Revoir!

Tall, blonde, and a totally hilarious comedian? Must be Dax the Shepherd of course! At 2 years old and 61 lbs, I am some sort of shepherd/husky mix with the personality of a mastiff. A total mutt for sure! I am a silly, young and energetic guy who needs lots of mental stimulation. Whether it be playing fetch in the yard or working on some interactive food toys, I am a smart boy who is easily entertained. I am pretty new to Portland and coming from a pretty rural environment in Texas, I am learning the ways of city life. But I am still a sensitive boy and would prefer an adult only (and no future kiddos) owned home in a low foot traffic area. I am a pretty pro social guy with my human friends and am definitely the class clown! I have meet some doggy friends at Pixie, so a confident adult female doggy sibling in my home would be just fine! However, places like dog parks and where there is lots of doggy traffic would be a bit too overwhelming for me, and would prefer one on one play groups instead. No kitties in my home please! Having lots of energy and being a younger pup, I could definitely learn some of the basics when it comes to training. But I am very food motivated and a fast learner, so it should be very easy! I do love going for daily walks in the  low traffic areas. And after a long day of activity, well, I am happy to join you on the couch for some maxin and relaxin. Handsome, goofy, and downright entertaining, I am ready to make you laugh today! Fill out an application, so we can arrange a meet. I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.
