4 Adoptable Animals for Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month

4 Adoptable Animals for Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month

We are celebrating Adopt-a-Shelter dog month!

According to the ASPCA, “approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year. When these abandoned and often abused animals find their way to a shelter, each one needs a forever home and their potential is limitless. Some of the benefits of adoption are often hidden. Human and canine both enjoy the increased activity and social interaction through daily walks. Humans develop patience as they learn the ways of their new four-legged companion. Dogs explore the many scents of the human lifestyle, usually discovering shoes are off limits.”

There are only a few days left in October so we still have time to get the word out about four adorable adoptable animals that you can meet at the Pixie Project.

Here are some pics and short excerpts from their profiles! More in the links below about each animal.

So while you’re looking for a last minute costume and candy, help us find forever homes for these four animals!

Adoptable Animals

C.J. and Touche *Foster Needed*

Come one and come all! Step right up and see the most famous dynamic duo on the planet: It’s C.J. and Touche! We are a couple of 9-year-old adorable Pug/Terrier mixes both weighing in at around 14lbs. We have been together all our lives and never go anywhere without the other, so suffice to say we are indeed bonded. We, unfortunately, lost our mom who recently passed away in hospice care. But we are very social with other people and would be oh so happy to be apart of a family again. In this 3 ringed circus known as life, we have met a lot of other dogs and people in our travels, but we would much prefer to retire in a quiet adult only owned home as the only pets.

Adoption $350

Franny

Hi everyone! My name is Frances, but you can call me Franny for short! I am an adorable 10-year-old Chihuahua mix weighing in at only about 8 lbs. Though I am small, I have a big heart with a lot of love to share with you. I am a confident but sensitive lady who enjoys hanging with my adult only human pals. I enjoying going for my daily walks and love rolling around in the grass.  When I am out on these adventures, everyone seems to want to wink at me. It took me forever to realize that they thought I was winking first-HA! You might notice I have one eye that is quite smaller than the other. I was just born this way and there are no medical concerns regarding it, and overall I have adapted to it just fine! Besides being outside in the sun, I really enjoy being next to my people getting lots of cuddles and snuggles on your lap.

Adoption fee $350

Sundae

One small yummy hot fudge Sundae coming right up! And the cherry on top of it all, well that’s me! Hello everyone. You can call me Sundae and I am a 6-year-old Chihuahua mix sweet enough to curb any sugar craving! At 8 lbs, I am a small gal with a big heart. I come from a very rural place in California, so I am a little bit nervous at first, but I tend to shake it off quickly and am actually highly social! Outside, the busy traffic is still new to me but I am always happy to see new people or other doggies on the street. In fact, I get so excited when Pixie staff come to see me that I do a little cooing howl to let them know that I am ready to play!

Adoption fee $350

King

All hail the King! Just kidding. I am still more of “king in training”. After all, I am only about a 1.5 old! I came in rough shape at Pixie, but they got me all patched up and ready to go! I am even officially all cleared to start running around with my doggy pals and human friends over 8, and I am so very excited to do so! I just love being active and would be a great little hiker. My foster mom says I still like to have my down time and would happily snuggle up on the couch with you after a day of puppy antics.

Adoption fee is $350

Customers of the Month: Meet Finnegan, Sophie and Max

Customers of the Month: Meet Finnegan, Sophie and Max

We are thrilled to introduce our first Customer Spotlight trifecta! Meet Finnegan, Sophie and Max. We asked Becky about her three and what they enjoy most. Enjoy this brief interview! She has two seniors! Lucky Becky!

Customer Spotlight

  1. What is your name? Becky Robbins
  2. What is the name of your pet? Finnegan, Sophie, and Max
  3. What breed is your pet? Finnegan- Lab, Sophie– pit bull, Max- chi mix
  4. How old is your pet? Finnegan- 12, Sophie- 6, Max- 13
  5. What do they do that makes you laugh? Finnegan takes his blanket everywhere he goes- he drags it around the house, takes it with him to go to the bathroom and to greet guests. Woobie travels. Sophie gives herself the zoomies for no reason. She eats and sometimes just suddenly tucks her bum and rounds circles around the house. When I hear things falling down, I know its zoomie time. Max recently learned to itch his back on the ground. He doesn’t quite have the entire move down, so he just throws himself down on the ground. If you don’t notice him, he’ll throw himself over and over until you give him a belly rub. It’s like ‘Stop. Drop. Roll” without the roll.
  6. What is their favorite treat? Favorite pastime? Treat- Code Skins from Fang, watermelon and fresh blueberries! & Pastime- Car rides, going for walks in the neighborhood and trips to the beach!
  7. What activity do you enjoy the most with your pet? Simply being lucky enough to be their mom. I thank goodness every day they are mine. They’re rescues and I can’t imagine no one wanted them. I scored. I think they are the best dogs. Anything that makes them do the pant/smile, I just melt. Snuggle/snores are good too.
  8. What silly name do you call your pet when no one is around? Finn- Angel Face, Boo Boo Bear; Sophie- Po Po Chanel, Poey nut nut head and Max- Maxie Million Wonder Chi
  9. What has your pet taught you? Resilience, bravery, patience and to live in the moment.
  10. Where does your pet sleep? Anywhere they want! I’m just a visitor in my own home. It’s basically a slipcovered doggie daycare.
  11. Lastly, what is most precious about your relationship? Their unconditional love. I can tell them anything and they’ll never judge me. They may also lick a tear or two if I need it! I also cherish the love they give each other. They truly look out for one another.
