Pixie is a 1 year old white and black, tiny dachshund mix. Pixie weighs about 7 pounds. Pixie is a bit nervous and timid, so she will need a family willing to spend some time to teach her the ropes. She gets along great with dogs and cats, sorry no small children. Pixie has energy to spare. She would make a great running partner or a wonderful agility dog. She loves to run and chase her foster siblings. She always up for a good wrestle. Pixie does have trust issues. She is very untrusting of people, and she is quite scared. She fears that people are not nice and worries that you may hurt her. Poor girl has not been treated well in her past. She seems to have just been neglected, not abused. Since coming to rescue she is getting better. She will come up to be petted, but still in untrusting. She is looking for a quiet home with no kids and with another active sibling to keep her company. Pixie does not understand her inside voice, so she would be best in a home with a yard. Since she is mix, she can also use stairs with no problem. Pixie will make someone a great little addition.
Pixie's adoption fee: $150
We do not have a kennel or facility to visit, all dogs are kept in foster homes until their forever homes are found.
Adoption Process: Once an approved application is on file, we will then set up a home visit. At that time we will bring the dog to the home in which you will all be sharing. We ask the entire family to be there that day. If we all agree on the placement, then the dog will stay with you that day.
