Breed: Dachshund-Chihuahua mix

Age: 3 years old

Weight: 13 pounds

Fur: Black/White/Brown

Pixie is sweet girl that came to the shelter as a stray dog from Rosemead. Although initially shy and cautious when she arrived at the shelter, she adjusted well and has become a very friendly girl that is eager to receive pets and attention. She has a charming gesture of standing on her hind legs and pawing the air with her front paws, as if she is begging for some treats or attention.

Pixie is easy to harness and handle on the leash. She does enjoy sniffing and exploring the grass and trees, and seems to love the outdoors. Pixie has shown a playful side to her personality and enjoys playing with toys, shaking them vigorously while her tail wags non-stop. She also likes playing with other dogs in the shelter play yard or on a walk.

Pixie is a lovely girl who needs a secure and loving home. She is sure to be a treasured member of the family for many years to come. Come in to meet sweet Pixie and see if her charm doesn’t touch your heart. Her adoption fee is $130 and includes spay surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Pixie.

Name: Prim

ID: 19895

Gender: Female

Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Age: 2 years old

Weight: 7 pounds

Fur: Gray and Black

Prim is a 2 year old tabby domestic short hair, and has the perfect calm and proper demeanor to fit her name. When visitors come into Mini Manor, Prim politely meows inviting them to meet her. Once she has the attention she seeks, she loves to be petted and rolls over to have gentle lady-like belly rubs. When she is comfortable with her visitor, Prim enjoys sitting in a lap for one on one attention. She is an affectionate girl and when you look into her bright green eyes, you’ll see a lady just waiting to give and receive love. Prim will come after the laser light and feathery toys to play with people. While she gets along fine with the other cats in her area, she just prefers to watch their antics from a distance.

Prim is looking for her forever family where her sweet, calm disposition will be appreciated. Her adoption fee is $99, which includes spay surgery, a microchip, first vaccinations and a free wellness check-up at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Prim.
