Oh hello! It is nice to meet you! My name is Zuri and I am a cutie 4 year old Rottweiler mix weighing in at 58lbs. As you can tell in my pictures, I am very soft doggy who enjoys the company of other dog friends. In fact, I am a little bit of a follower myself, so having another confident dog in the home to take the lead would help me come out of my shell a bit faster. You see, they think that someone back in my past wasn’t very nice to me and so I am a little bit reserved and sensitive with new people and new situations. But if you just let me come up to you first and snag some of those tasty hotdogs, I quickly open up. Then you can see what a happy and bouncy pup I really am! When I was at Pixie, the bustling traffic outside was very scary to me and I didn’t really enjoy my walks. But when I got into my foster home with lots of space, I instantly felt more comfortable! So a house in a quieter area would be ideal. I’m not a type of doggy who would like to do lots of new things or go to a bunch of new places, but might be able to do a lesser known not so crowded hiking trail. Especially with a doggy sibling who can lead the way! Running around in the backyard is ideal too. I don’t seem to have any prey drive and could do a home with a dog savvy cat. I do open up to my human friends over 12 and really enjoy playing fetch! I am just a sweet gal looking for a patient and mellow home with a family who can give me lots of love, which is something I don’t think I have really had much of in the past. Fill out an application today to set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Beauty. Grace. Elegance. And hair for days! My name is Sasha and I am a gorgeous 11 year old Sheltie weighing in at 15lbs. I am a happy gal with a super sweet personality who loves to snuggle and get lots of pets. What can I say? I love to be loved! I am super social with everyone I meet as well as my dog and cat friends too. I am a pretty simple lady in that all I really want is a nice home where I get lots of attention. Oh yeah-and lots of treats too! I am a gal enjoying her retirement years and though I enjoy brisk walks in the neighborhood, I am not really one for lots of bustling activity.  I do, however, seem to enjoy car rides, so I bet I wouldn’t mind a nice little day trip to the beach or joining you on a picnic in the park! But a nice day curled up next to you on the couch is great too! I am just happy to be with my people. You see, I  have this lump on my leg that is unfortunately more than your average old dog lumps and bumps. Pixie is determining if can be removed with surgery. But even if it can’t, I am still a happy girl full of life who desires a loving home with a family to call my own. Someone who will help me check off all the things on my bucket list. Someone who will pamper me and give me the very best. Someone who will let me lick the last of the peanut butter out of the jar or steal all the covers in the middle of the night. Someone who can be my companion and friend until the very end. Is that someone you? Fill out an application today or email for more information.

This is your chance to own a one-of-a kind bookmark handcrafted by our friend Chuck Palahniuk! Each bookmark is different and there are only 55 available. Get yours HERE!

“When my father was murdered in 1999, I began to collect rocks as I traveled.  My earliest memories of him were of us two hunting for agates so this became my ritual for remembering him.  I’ve brought home amber, moss agates, peridot, Russian chromium diopside, hematite, goldstone, tree agates, onyx, obsidian, coral, pearls, sodalite, chrysoprase, amazonite, aventurine, jade, amethyst, lapis lazuli, rose quartz, tourmaline, raw emeralds, calcite, alabaster, Botswana agates, picture jasper, tigers eye, Dalmatian jasper, snowflake obsidian, citrine, apatite, carnelian agate, howlite, variscite, abalone, opal, turquoise, sunstone quartz, serpentine, malachite, Pacific jasper, as well as art glass beads from Rome and Prague.  When my mother died in 2009, I began to use elements from jewelry that had belonged to her:  charms, cloisonné enamel, pendants.  These I combine to create bookmarks that range in length from two-feet to four-feet long.  Each is unique and takes several days to make and wrap.  Each is strung on steel cable, knotted and crimped and secured with jewelry-grade Hypo Cement.  Hook one from a book on your highest shelf, and add some bling to your library.  I’ll send each with a letter to explain the stones and other elements it includes.    chuck palahniuk”

Oh hi! Didn’t see you there. Well that may be because I don’t really see much at all. But I don’t let that get in my way and seem to adapt to new environments quickly! My name is Greg and I am a sweetie pie 12 lb poodle mix. At 12 years young, though I am mostly about the sleepy and cuddle times, I do love to occasionally play with my toys! I will happily bring it over to you to throw and since I can’t really see where it lands, I have to use my mighty nose to sniff it out! My fosters say it’s pretty darn cute. Since I am not the young hiker that I used to be, walks aren’t really my style. So instead my amazing foster parents carry me out to my potty spot and I immediately go, and then it’s back inside for another cuddle session! I am a social guy who doesn’t really mind being around other mellow cats and dogs, and I am always happy to greet new human friends. Though I still have a fun and feisty side, I am mostly a mellow fellow, and am looking for a quiet retirement home with someone who can give me lots of love! And I of course, will give you lots in return! In fact, when you get home from work or running errands, I will always excitedly greet you at the door flipping on my back for some belly rubs. I still have that spunk after all! Playful, silly and easy going, I am just a nice gentleman looking for a cozy lap to rest my head as we cuddle the days way! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chip with an adoption fee of $300.

Howdy! My name is Earl and I am a 8 yo 25lb Chihuahua/Beagle mix hailing all the way from the South. Texas to be exact! My hobbies include: eating, waiting to eat, lots of sniffing, and sleeping either in my crate or in the sunshine on the deck. I am a pretty independent guy overall who appreciates my space and those who respect it. The kittens in my foster don’t understand that just yet, and I usually give them an old man grumble. A little “stay off my lawn” exclamation. I seem to completely ignore and tolerate the other small pups in my foster home and will even cuddle with them on the couch, so another small mellow dog like myself would be just fine in my home. But I would rather not live with boisterous puppies or kitties, and since I really like my space, I would do best in adult only home as well. I am not a total curmudgeon and I do really like to play fetch with my toys or cuddle with my friends! My favorite place is often in your lap on the couch. I do really well in my crate and often times choose to nap there on my own, but I can get a little sad when you first leave for the day. Plus, I like to follow my nose and can be a little bit of an adventurer out the front door. So a home with a secured yard and that doesn’t share walls with neighbors would be ideal for me. I seem a little scared of stairs and hardwood floors, so ideally I wouldn’t have a ton to navigate in my new place.  Silly, cute, and overall just a sweet old soul, I am ready to sit on the back porch with forever companion, sipping tea, and watch the world go by. Sound like your ideal day too? Fill out an application today to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

How do you do?! My name is Miss Hazel and I am a sweet 6 year old Pitty mix weighing in at 72lbs. I am a soft and sensitive lady with a mellow personality who enjoys the finer things in life, such as cuddles on the couch, lots of tasty treats, and following the sunbeam around the house to absorb the warmth. Coming from Texas, I am bit sensitive of these high traffic and loud areas, so I am looking for a house in quieter neighborhood. The staff don’t seem to think I would be much of hiker. Instead, I am much more of a lazy snuggly, wrapped up in the blanket like a burrito pitopotamus that yearns to be close to my human pals over 10.  I have met a few dog friends here at Pixie and I was quite the flirt! When I met the office kitty, I was definitely interested in meeting her but called away easily with treats.  Thus, I could potentially be ok in a home with a super confident and dog savvy cat. More than anything though, I just like being with my people and I yearn for that companionship! Someone who can tell me about their day while giving me belly rubs. Someone who won’t mind if I steal the covers in the middle of the night. Someone who will tell me stories while we sit on the back porch watching the world go by. Lovely, gorgeous, and such a sweetheart, I ready to find my forever home today. Will it be with you? 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. Interested in fostering me while I search for my home? Email

What’s long, but short and full of spunk? It’s me, Lacey-the silly and super sweet 1 yo lab/bassett mix! Everyone just loves me and my goofy antics so much, they say I should have my own comedy tv show. And I think that is a swell idea. Getting lots of attention and laughs sounds right up my ally! At 29 pounds, I am not much of a hiker. But I do love neighborhood walks and I would have a blast running on the beach or joining you at your favorite outdoor patio in the summer! I am very much a energetic puppy and still have quite a bit of learning to do as TRAINING CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. From potty training, to basic commands, to walking politely on leash, all things that I am sure will come easy to me since I am so very much food motivated and eager to please! When it comes to meeting new people, I am the star of the show…the funny wisecracker of the group if you will, and I greet everyone of all ages with happy bounces and kisses! With my dog friends, I love to play too but can get sometimes overwhelmed by in your face playstyles. And if I do meet a pup that is too much for me, I am very soft and all I will do is just roll on my side and tap out. I met the office kitty at Pixie and I did get really excited when I saw her and wanted to play. So a confident dog savvy kitty in my home would be ok. With my unique and adorable body, a home with lots of stairs probably wouldn’t be ideal. With the fact I can get a bit houndy with my bark (I am part bassett after all!), plus the potential for puppy chewing and some accidents while I figure this whole “going outside” thing out, I am looking for a house whose neighbors won’t mind if there is a bit of hound like baying every once in awhile. I can’t help it. Sometimes my jokes are so funny, I crack myself up!  But I am ready to have my an audience to call my own. Will I make you laugh? Let’s find out! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

*Head Tilt* Did you say cuddles, treats, and jogging around the block? How did you know those were my favorite things?! My name is Abigail but most folks just call me Abby. I am a bouncy and energetic 1 yo Border Collie mix weighing around 47lbs and hailing from…you guessed it, the South! If my adorable face and Southern charm aren’t enough to real you in, then how about the fact that I am an extremely goofy and very human social gal who is eager to say hi to all my new friends over 12. I definitely could use some of the basics and am still learning some manners, so TRAINING CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. Because of my spastic working dog antics, I am looking for a family in a house who have some experience with large high energy dogs. Someone who can teach me frisbee or how this fetch thing works or how to join you on your daily runs! Though I am very exuberant with my people, I am fairly shy with other furry dog friends and it does take me some time to warm up. I am very appropriate and communicative when I feel uncomfortable but places like busy dog parks or bustling hiking trails will be too overwhelming for me. Instead, I would do best with one on one play with an adult male pup who can read my signals and who will let me come out of my shell on my own time. With my tendency to chase, I would need a kitty free home. I am a working dog through and through, and I bet I would be awesome at some backyard agility or nosework games too! With me being so smart and eager to learn, the possibilities are endless. So let’s get started today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.
