“That’ll do pig. That’ll do.” Babe here, and I am a 5 yo Beagle mix here to save the day with lots of snuggles and cuddles! At 20lbs, I love being a lap dog, and I promise to curl up extra small so I fit just perfectly. It’s the optimal position for lots of pets! I am a sensitive and shy gal at first, but with some time and lots of those yummy treats, I am ready to be best friends my adult human friends and will greet you with lots of wiggles. I am a little weary of new doggies, but just try and actively avoid them if I don’t feel comfortable. Thus, I tend to get along best with confident adult male dogs around my size. No kitties in my home please. My fosters take me for walks in the neighborhood and I really enjoy it! Especially in the lower traffic areas. Same goes for hikes! They say I am an excellent rider in the car and prefer the lesser frequented trails. I bet I would even enjoy a trip to the beach! When I am not out and about, I really enjoy hanging out in the backyard, soaking up the sun and thus would prefer a house set up versus apartment living.  Sweet, cuddly and oh so cute, it is so rewarding to watch me blossom! I am ready to sprout into my forever home today. Fill out an application to set up a meet! I come to you vaccinated, spayed, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! Sissy here, and I am just the silly gal you been waiting for! At around 7-8 years old, I am a hilarious and adorable MinPin mix weighing about 9lbs. When I first came to Pixie, I was a little sad since my owner passed away and was a bit nervous. But as soon as I went into a foster home, I opened up quickly! Especially with the help of my doggy friends. In fact, I have always been around dogs most of my life, and they give me a little confidence boost I need. Plus, having friends to run around with is so much fun, and thus I am really looking for a home with another fur friend. It’s just really helps me adapt to new things to have a pal to follow. I didn’t really seem too interested in the office cat at Pixie, so a dog savvy kitty would be fine. After coming out of my shell, I am quite the energetic lady and even my snuggles start off with a body slam. My foster thinks it is pretty cute and hard to resist, and so she always stops what she is doing to give me more snuggles. I am still a pretty sensitive lady and can take a second to warm up to new people, and would do best in a home with kiddos over 12. When I was at Pixie, I did really seem to enjoy my walks outside and now in my foster home, I really enjoy running around the yard while soaking up the sun. Goofy, sweet, and full of personality, I am ready to play with my family and doggy sibling today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Hello! My name is Horton and I am a 10 year old Lhasa Apso. Can you guess what my favorite book is? It’s Horton Hears a Who, of course! Though I am not as big as my elephant counterpart, I do have a giant heart full of love to share with new friends. Not to mention my superb hearing which really comes in handy since I am slightly vision impaired. My foster thinks I might be able to see big movements or shadows, and can anticipate when a curb is coming but other than that, I rely on my other senses to really get the lay of the land. It can take me a second to get used to new environments, so having to move around a lot and get familiar with new places would be a bit difficult for me. Instead, I would be much happier staying in house setting without a ton of stairs (I can manage a few stops at a time), that I can live out the rest of my retirement years in. My lack of vision doesn’t really seem to slow me down when it comes to play. In fact, I absolutely love playing with my toys and bringing them around with me. Tennis balls seem to be my favorite, but the soft squeaky toys are fun too! I am a pretty great walker as well. When I was at Pixie, the staff said the first time they took me on a walk to the park up the street, as soon as I hit the grass, it was instant zoomies! I have always been in an environment with lots of other dogs and even a few kitties, so I am pretty easy going when it comes to having mellow fur siblings in my home. Because of my limited vision, a busy household with a lot of people in and out would not be ideal, and just be a bit overwhelming for me. But in a quiet setting, especially when there are some toys to play with, I easily open up to my human pals over 12. Watching me blossom puts so much joy in the people’s hearts around me, especially after being deprived of a lot of things first growing up. Thus, it’s the little things like the grass between my paws or a tiny who in whoville that I appreciate and enjoy the most.  And I would so love to share these experiences with my forever companion today! Fill out an application, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with recent bloodwork and a dental, with an adoption fee of $350.

Ciao Bella! Buongiorno! Pleased to meet you you. My name is Bella and I am a 6 year old cattledog mix who is as sweet as a cannoli! At 47 lbs, I am an adorable meatball with a big heart who is very affectionate. When I see new people, I get so excited to say hi and as soon as they start the pets, I plop down in side saddle mode and enjoy the attention. In the home, I would enjoy being with kiddos 12 and up. Though I really enjoy being outside on my walks, I am a bit environmentally sensitive which just means that busy areas with either lots of foot or car traffic can be a bit overwhelming. So I am not a big fan of downtown, but wouldn’t mind a nice quiet neighborhood or suburb where there is less going on. I am a very chill and go with the flow kind of gal. I will take pets over playing with toys, and curling up on the couch or sunbathing in the yard are my favorite activities! No kitties in my home please. I have met a few dogs here at Pixie and can be a bit selective with my friends, but I wouldn’t mind hanging with a confident mellow pal. I am more of a people dog anyways. I mean why play with other dogs when you can get belly rubs and tasty treats?!  I am just a happy and silly gal full of cuddles and snuggles to share with my new best friend 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.

Who is dashing, charming, has a great smile, and totally rocks a leather jacket? It’s Stamos of course! That’s my name and being handsome is the game. At 3 years old and 22lbs, not much is known about my exact breed mix, but based on my personality, the best guess would be a Min Pin/Beagle mix. I am a seriously playful dude with love of squeaky toys and tennis balls. I lived with another dog most my life and having a play buddy around not only helps me get out some extra energy, but helps me increase my confidence out in the world. Being from a more rural area in the South, high traffic areas are a bit overwhelming. But in a quieter area with a dog buddy to tag along with, I feel a lot more comfortable and happy to follow along. I can be very playful, so an older dog may not want me up in their grill, but a confident adult sibling will really help me open up and keep me entertained. I am pretty outgoing with new people I meet, though I still have a bit of sensitive side. Thus, I am looking for a home with kiddos over 12. Sometimes I jam a little too hard when practicing with my rock band, so I would also do best in a house without shared walls with neighbors. With kitties, I tend to be a little exuberant in my play and like to chase, so no cats in my home please! After some activity, I am quite the snugglebug and would love to curl up with you on the couch while getting some pets. Silly, sweet, and downright lovable, this cool cat-I mean dog- is ready to find my forever home today! Will it be with you? Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.
