Bixbie’s adoption donation is $375 and he is being fostered in Central Ohio.  He has been neutered, microchipped, received his rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza, and Bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms and was started on prevention, as well as flea prevention. He also received a dental cleaning. Bixbie was surrendered to a rural animal shelter


Bixbie is an approximately 6 year old Yorkie - Shih Tzu mix who LOVES his people. He is a very smart little guy who is eager to please. He is excellent at playing fetch with his little stuffed toys/balls. He enjoys squeaky toys as well but most of all he loves getting lots of lap time. At first, he likes to let the other dogs know he thinks he is the boss but he settles in nicely and relatively quickly with the pack after a bit. Currently he loves to cuddle up with the other dogs in the home as well. He will benefit from an owner who is able to set some appropriate and consistent boundaries up front to address his guarding behaviors. Presently, he can be possessive of his people when new people come around, so a home without frequent visitors would be a good match. He is not suitable for apartments and no children. No cats. He has good housetraining manners if kept on a schedule. He is active and really enjoys going on long fast walks, or even a jog. He prefers to smell as much as he can "on the run" with his little terrier sniffer. He does get a little nervous on car rides. Little Bixbie has such a huge heart in his tiny little body and will be a very loyal companion who is willing to learn new tricks.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the individual webpage of our dogs, you will be able to get more information each dog.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:  http://www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/info/adoption

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets. 

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at www.ohiofuzzypawz.com/forms.  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
