Bixby ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

Hello potential BFFs!

My name is Bixby, and I'm currently taking applications for a full-time, permanent companion.

This is a once-in-lifetime opportunity for the right candidate. The requirements for this position include a safe home, a warm lap, and lots of love. I'm an equal opportunity employer, so apply today for this exciting opening.

The good folks at Silky Terrier Rescue found me at a high-kill shelter in the Los Angeles area. They think I'm around seven years old. Even though I was listed as a stray, they think I may have been an older person's dog because I'm so calm, well-behaved, and quiet.

Since this is a full-time companion position I'm seeking to fill, a retired or work-at-home person who doesn't mind having a shadow would be ideal. I'll sit on your lap while you're watching TV, lay by your feet while you're on the computer, and observe from a safe distance while you're cooking in the kitchen.

Although I like to be with you, I do well in a crate at night and at other times when necessary.

I'm a little guy (a tad over seven pounds), but I'm not as small as that sounds. I'm on the skinny side, so I could use some good meals.

My body is long like a Silky Terrier, but I have fine bones like a Yorkshire Terrier. I have an awesome coat and nice coloring. I may or may not be 100% Silky or Yorkie, but what does it matter when I'm this handsome?

Right now, I have a temporary (foster) in the companion position I'm seeking to fill on a permanent basis. He's okay, but he has a couple of other furry employers already. While it's not a requirement, I might do best as an only dog. I tend to be a little possessive of my companion's lap.

If you have what it takes to be my forever companion, please apply now! Bixby is currently being fostered in the Palm Springs area. He is up-to-date on vaccines, is neutered and microchipped.

His adoption fee is $250.00

Bixby's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to take proper care of him. Preference will be given to applicants within the surrounding area. Please note we do not ship our rescues.

If you are interested in Bixby, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at

If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email us at and let us know you are interested in Bixby (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).
