Pixie is a loving senior pooch with the most adorable, expressive ears! This happy go lucky girl really proves that age is just a number, and she can't wait to meet her forever family!

Pixie adores her humans and loves to snuggle with them more than anything. She loves being pet, and if you stop and she wants more, she'll adorably nudge your hand to let you know to keep going. She's just a wee bit shy when first meeting new people, but after a few minutes will offer them kisses (There have been only a couple exceptions to this, but the two girls she didn't give kisses to had very dark lipstick on).

Low key and low energy, this sweet gal is the consummate lap dog and gets along well with her canine buddy in her foster home. She's house-trained and is great about using potty pads if you're gone for lengthy periods of time. Pixie is diabetic, but it's managed with easy-to-administer insulin shots twice a day.

Pixie could thrive in a number of home situations, and as long as she has at least one human to get plenty of snuggle time with, she will be a happy little camper! Come meet this sweet pup!
