From the Foster:

Pixie is a DOLL. She loves to nap, go for a walk, nap, play some tug (her FAVORITE), and nap some more. 
Pixie learned early on that being a good girl meant she got treats, so she is absolutely the best girl she could be.
She knows all your basic commands, has good recall and walks well on leash. Like most pitties, she wants to be with her people as much as possible. She loves to just lay with (or on top of) you on the couch. 
She adores chew toys-they can keep her occupied for hours on end with no treats at all, but she is a toy destroyer, so keep an eye on her :) We have been working on some toy guarding issues between her and our dog, but this has improved dramatically!
She is house trained and doesn't chew or get into anything she's not supposed to while we are gone. She is not crate trained, but she does not need one. 
When she sees other dogs, she is curious and sweet, but not tugging to meet them. She does well meeting any dogs out on walks, at the vet or at the pet store. She would love to be a brewery or patio companion! 
She would be an excellent first dog or only dog. She lives with a male dog right now and does amazing. Pixie is a little bossy, but so sweet with him, listens to his grumpy growls and sometimes obliges him for a game of chase. However, she does need slow introductions to other dogs. She does better on leash than off leash, so should not be going to dog parks or meeting dogs off leash that she doesn't know. 
She is so gentle. She would do great with humans of all ages and sizes, but she is exceptional with children! Plus she has absolutely the softest tongue on Earth and gives the sweetest, softest kisses! I think she would make an excellent emotional support companion. She is very in tune with my emotions and always wants to cuddle and comfort you. 
Pixie has been with us for some lump/mass removal, which was successful. She does need to be on Benadryl for the rest of her life to mitigate some symptoms, but she's a real trooper and she takes her pills/treats gently. 
If you're looking for a sweet angel pittie baby to join your family, look no further. Pixie is a sweetheart who would love to meet you!
