    Diesel is a 100 lb., 2 year old, neutered Mastiff mix that found himself needing a new home on very short notice. The circumstances he and his brother, Justice, were in was unfortunate. Cross Our Paws was asked to help and fortunately we had the resources at that time to accept both dogs into our care. Justice proved to be a wonderfully balanced dog and had an amazing application come in that was perfect for him. Diesel on the other hand, needed/s more time to help him become a more balanced and trusting dog. He has made HUGE progress and continues to improve. His main issues are with young men in the home/visiting the home. Being part Mastiff, we want Diesel to be the best he can be. It is imperative he live with other calm, balance dogs that are friendly to both other dogs and people. An adult home that is quiet but active with breed experience is preferred. More information will be posted in the coming weeks. When Diesel is ready for adoption only homes that are located within the Vancouver Lower Mainland will be considered.IMG_2807IMG_3277

    Lacey is still looking for her special home. Lacey is almost a year old and is a true pleasure to be around. She does experience some anxiety when left alone so a home where someone is home during the day or can take her to work would be ideal. Cagney (right), Lacey’s sibling, found her forever home NOW it’s lacey’s turn!!! Lacey and Cagney came to us after being rescued in Alberta. For more information about Lacey visit her here on our adoptable petlist.

    Daphne

    Daphne2Tanya King kindly donates her time photographing homeless dogs in need. What a talented photographer!

    This is DAPHNE, a 5 yr old GSD that was clearly used as a breeding dog. She was found as a stray in February and has been living the shelter life for almost 8 months. She is now spayed and doing amazing in a foster home. DAPHNE came to us via Vancouver Animal Shelter as a transfer and we are thrilled to be able to help!

    DAPHNE was just posted for adoption. Updates will be added as we get to know her better so we can make the best match possible for her. What we do know so far is Daphne is a lovely, intelligent girl and is true to her breed. Daphne gets along well with most other dogs but doesn’t need to live with one. She loves to play and is learning not all dogs want to so she gracefully moves on. She is house and crate trained and protective of her people. Breed savvy homes will be considered first. For more information about our rescue and adoption process please visit our website here under adoption process. www.crossourpawsrescue.com
