Just look at this stunning pair!  Apollo & Athena are sibling shelties that were surrendered due to sudden changes in their home.  They are 2 years old.  Apollo is merle in color and 17 pounds and Athena is tri-colored and weighs 20 pounds!

Athena & Apollo are super smart and eager to learn!  They are high energy, playful and full of love!  They are constantly together, playing, playing and playing!  Because they went through so much, we would like them to stay together and do not want to separate them.  They are fine with other dogs.  Cats not so much - they will chase.  They love people and are friendly little dogs looking for a treat!  Both are good watch dogs letting you know that something is happening that shouldn't be.  Apollo likes to hang out on the couch with you and Athena will be at your feet.  They are good in a car and travel well!  Athena and Apollo will do well in a home that continue letting them learn - they would love to agility and obedience training!  Beautiful dogs that will make wonderful family pets!  

Both dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, flea/worm treated and heartworm tested neg.  Their adoption fee is $650 for BOTH dogs ($325 each).  Please apply online if you are interested in giving these two a home for the holidays!

About Pixie Mamas Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Pixie Mamas Rescue (PMR) is a group of volunteer dog lovers whose mission is to rescue, provide sanctuary, and ultimately to re-home abandoned, stray and neglected dogs. We also assist dogs who, because of extenuating circumstances, are unable to remain in their homes. We aid in the rescue of small breed dogs. We are located in Western New York.
All PMR dogs are housed in foster homes where they are provided with an enormous amount of love and any medical attention that may be required to insure that they are in good health before adoption. They are all spayed or neutered and brought up-to-date on shots before being placed in their new homes.
All dogs are evaluated for temperament and personality. This helps us to place them in homes that are well suited to their needs and to the needs of their future owners.

All information pertaining to this dog is listed on our website, including age, general size, personality profile, adoption fee and all policies and procedures pertaining to adopting a Pixie Mamas dog. Please go to our website and read about the dog there as well as all pertinent info. for adopting this dog. IF THERE IS INFORMATION NOT INCLUDED IN THE DOGS PROFILE THAT IS NECESSARY FOR YOU TO MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHETHER ,,,GENERALLY SPEAKING,,,,THIS DOG IS A GOOD FIT FOR YOUR FAMILY, THEN PLEASE GO AHEAD AND EMAIL WITH THAT SPECIFIC QUESTION. We will be happy to answer questions not already covered in the thorough amount of info already printed on our website. If you feel that this dog is worth considering as a family member, please submit an application and a volunteer will contact you asap.
We are all volunteers with jobs and families and probably more dogs than you, so please understand that we are very busy. We are not able to keep up with the constant general questions and phone call requests that, with a little time and reading on your part, is already included on our website. Replying to all emails makes it very difficult to do our jobs as well as we would like.
All dogs who have adoptions PENDING, will have that info printed right next to their name. Having a pending adoption does not make it a done deal, it means that we are at the home visit/meet and greet phase of the adoption and it could go one way or another so feel free to check back on the status of the dog in question.
We do not have a facility for you to come and visit our dogs. They are in our homes, sleeping in our beds and lounging on our sofa. We value our privacy and do not open our homes to visitors wanting to meet "all the dogs".
Thank you for your interest in our wonderful Pixie Mamas pooches. Without you adopters we could not continue to do what we do. We appreciate your time and effort as well ,to comply with what is needed for us to keep Pixie Mamas Rescue going with as little stress and extra time as necessary.
Our adoption fees start at $200, some highly adoptable dogs are more and others are less - that will be stated in their profiles.
Good luck in finding the right dog for your family.
