    UPDATE: Daphne found an amazing home to call her own. She couldn’t be happier!

    Our apologies in advance if this photo offends you. Daphne had her surgery and is doing well. There were a number of tumors and she is likely going to need the other side (of her lower breasts) done as well. The vet had a lot of skin/breast/tissue to remove which makes it difficult to have a clean line. This breaks our hearts as Daphne is such a sweet dog and loves her people. She never deserved this She was bred EVERY heat.

    We want to THANK EVERYONE that has liked, commented and donated towards her care. We LOVE and THANK you all!!!
    We have managed to raise $800, however, her surgery will be close to $1400 (rescue quote) once we have the other tumors removed. Please help us help Daphne as she deserves this! No donation is too small.

    We have set up an account for Daphne at our vet clinic and have paypal and e-transfer. Email us if you can help [email protected]

    We recently pulled/transferred this sweet German Shepherd from Vancouver Animal Shelter to Cross Our Paws Rescue. She originally came in as a stray and had clearly been used as a breeding dog. Over 8 months later, Daphne was still homeless. Jessi Larssen of Cross Our Paws met Daphne and sponsored her and took her home to foster. Daphne has been an amazing addition to our rescue and is learning how to “just be a dog” and enjoy her life while we search for her forever family/match in life. She loves to play, run, swim and SNUGGLE. She is super smart and very driven which is no surprise considering her breed.
    After being in our care for almost a month we are worried that Daphne has some very concerning mammary tumors. We just finished a course of antibiotics and soaking her in epsom salts/warm water (gently massaging her), 2 teats are of a huge concern. We decided today to have them removed as they can not be expressed or manipulated and they are VERY sore for her. Her surgery is slated for early next week. Please think of our sweet Daphne as she deserves a life free of pain AND wants to LOVE and LIVE. Shame on horrible backyard breeders that do this to innocent animals only to make a quick buck and then throw them away like garbage when they can no longer produce a product for sale.
    We are SO thrilled to be able to give this girl what she deserves and hope we caught it early enough. If you are interested in helping us with Daphne’s vet bills please let us know. Donations can be made at our vet or via paypal on our website under “Getting Involved/Donating” Visit

    OLLIE is new to us and will be spending some time in foster care so we can get to know him better and learn what his needs are. He can be very shy of new surroundings and needs time to trust. OLLIE is only 4 months old and has been through 2 different homes already at NO fault of his own. OLLIE is a Border Collie mix and will remain on the small side of about 40 to 45 lbs. What a little sweetheart he is!!! OLLIE will not be placed in a home with young kids as they scare him.

    If you are interested in applying for OLLIE please visit our website at to learn more about our adoption process and application.
