found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Pixie joined us in foster care when her family decided to surrender her to the pound. We gladly rushed out to get her and are thrilled to have her join us!
Pixie is an extremely sweet dog who has not been taught to be a good canine citizen. She thinks the best way to get what she wants is to stand up on her hind legs or to jump up on you and lick you in the face...definitely not a good move with young children and the reason why she ended up with us in the first place!!!
However, she is bright and with someone who is able to give her the time and attention she needs, she will make an awesome family member.
She is affectionate and loves to sit on your lap, and she loves to be wherever you are...she has a favourite froggy toy and is always bringing this to you and asking play with me!!
She loves to go on walks, but due to limited exposure can find the big wide world a scary place, and she needs to be taught to relax when she is out.
At 24 lbs, Pixie is a good size to take out with you and has gangly teenagers legs and can be clumsy at times...not a doggy to have around precious household items!!
Pixie also hasn't learnt that her food is her food and can show some signs of guarding , which again points to the fact that she should be with older children or no children at all and with a family who have dog training experience or are willing to learn.
She is mostly clean in the house, but forgets when she's in new places, mainly because she is a little bit anxious, so again something to be aware of...
Pixie generally gets on well with other dogs, and with a good introduction would be fine in a house with a canine friend, as long as her new owners are aware and manage her resource guarding with food and toys. Similarly with calm cats....she does have a tendency to be over excited with them and doesn't read their signals very well, but could live with them if they are ok with that!!
Pixie can be a little over vocal when she is over nervous or scared so ideally no apartment life for her; we would not want her to upset your neighbors and then have to move her again. Her next stop has to be her forever home
Pixie has been left alone for upwards of 4 hours uncrated with no destruction however we would recommend that her newly adoptive family use the crate at the beginning to continue with her potty training and to ensure there is no unnecessary destruction in the home while left alone.
Like with everything else in Pixies life she is not used to traveling in the car, she is a little nervous but nothing too overwhelming and we are assuming the more time she is on the road traveling with her new BBFs discovering the world on new adventures the more she will come to enjoy it. Right now car rides for her mean a dump at the pound or a visit to the vet … car has not been associated with too many happy times for her so it makes sense that she is a little weary when she needs to go somewhere
