My story

NOTE:  If you are seeing this posting, she's still available :)

Meet Trixie!  She came with her sister (Pixie - already adopted) as part of an unwanted litter in WV.  Trixie's the bigger of the 2 (but not by much).  We were told she was born on 1/11/22 so she's about 7 months as of Aug.  Her mom looked to be a boston terrier mix so we don't think she'll be very big (maybe 30lbs'ish' - her Mom was under 30lbs).

Trixie is a very sweet girl, who just needs some basic training.  Her fosterhome has a fenced yard and since she has no leash training, that works best at the moment.  Like her sister she just needs routine & some manners to be the perfect family pet.  Trix is up to date on all of her vaccines including all of her puppy boosters and her first rabies shot.  She was spayed on 8/5/22 and was tested for HW and tick borne diseases - all were neg.  She has the shiniest sleek black coat we've ever seen on a pup before!  She's very treat motivated and when it comes to taking commands, she's all ears LOL  Her back left foot has a few toes missing, but it doesn't effect her ability to walk, run or play.  Initially we were told that mom was at fault for that but upon examination by our vet, it seems as though she was simply born that way making her perfectly imperfect :)

Recent small breed experience is a must since they're just not for everyone & definitely not for the 1st time dog owner.  This girl would NOT do well in a city environment, so we're seeking a more rural home since that's all she knows.  If you have the time and patience to train a puppy from scratch, please visit our site at & fill out an application to be considered.  Adopters must be no more than 2hrs driving distance from us.  Only older children in the home, please.
