Pixie is very loving

Yorkie Senior

Pixie is an adorable little 10 year old female Yorkshire Terrier. She is very easy going and is super sweet. She’s such a tiny little one and only weighs 4 1/2 pounds! She will make a wonderful companion. She’s dog friendly and is patiently waiting for her forever family to come fall in love with her. She has lost a few teeth along the way, so she’ll do better being on a soft-food diet. (Our private vet will check her teeth as part of her regular health check.) Pixie is fully vaccinated, spayed and chipped. If you would like to meet her, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $200.

Foster Homes Needed

So many dogs are finding their way into shelters. Sadly, due to overcrowding, many never make it out. We can only save as many dogs as we have available foster homes. Can you save a dog's life by giving it a warm, loving home for a few days or weeks? We pay all of the dog's expenses. Your kindness will be repaid with lots of love and affection! As a foster parent, you will NOT be required to bring the dog to weekly adoption events. We want fostering to be easy and rewarding! Every new foster home is a dog's life saved!

The Adoption Process

First and foremost, complete the application here.
We then schedule a quick and easy home check. We are only adopting out to the Southern California area. We save new dogs each week, so we often have dogs that we have yet to post online.
