Pet of the Week

 

Pixie

PIXIE (A212023)

See Pixie's video below:

A little over a year old, Pixie has been been a shelter resident twice already. Her last owner surrendered her back to the shelter because Pixie was a little too much for their 12 year old dog. Pixie resembles a mini-cattle dog. She also has some of the characteristics of a cattle dog in that she likes to chase and herd.

Pixie is an active and energetic girl who’s looking for someone to share some adventures. She’s a  little nervous about life right now and will require some patience and a dog savvy owner to help her build some confidence and learn how to interact in the world. We recommend a household with no small children since Pixie is fearful of kids and won’t like hands coming at her. She seems to enjoy playing with other dogs and will probably do well with another confident dog who can teach her how to play and interact appropriately. Once she’s comfortable, she’s quite loving and friendly.

Approx. 1 year, 3 months. Spayed female, black and brown Chihuahua – smooth coated mix.
