Olivia 6 mth
Olivia Frankie

OLIVIA is an active, 6.5 month old Cattle Dog mixed with a little Pit Bull (our guess). Olivia “needs” another dog in the home for her to feel her best. She is a very independent girl and not overly fond of children and cats if they run, she will take chase. Olivia needs an experienced home and is not for first time dog owners.

Meet TIC, TAC and TOE…

These sweet, male, fancy rat pups are ready for a loving home, preferably together…
They are 5 months old siblings and very               affectionate and tame…



DSC_8069Robin is a sweetheart, she is loving, affectionate and enjoys a good belly-rub. Robin can also be very shy and timid in new situations. We are looking for a breed-savvy, adult-home with no cats located in the lower mainland. Robin loves being around women but needs a little longer to trust new males. She requires someone home part of the day, either working from home or semi-retired. She will need gentle reminders of her house-manners as she is still learning the ropes of living indoors. Another friendly, playful, strong dog would be good for Robin. Email crossourpaws@gmail.com for details.

JOJO the Lab is once again looking for her new digs (adoption fell though). She is 2 yrs old, spayed and weighs about 75 lbs. JOJO is a very energetic girl that would benefit from some positive reinforcement training. She does well with other dogs but does like to play rough. She will need help learning to heel on leash and basic reminders of her manners. She is house-trained and would do best in a home with older kids and a younger dog that can keep up with her. We are not sure how she is with cats or other small pets. This is a courtesy post for her owners. If you are interested in learning more about JOJO please email us at crossourpaws@gmail.com

These 2 cuties are looking for a new home together. We are courtesy posting for our local shelter.  They were left in a box at the front door of a local shelter (after closing) so their details are unknown. They are bonded and would love a home together.

fullsizeoutput_1382 IMG_7387COP welcomes BENNY!

UPDATE: Ben is on medical hold until further notice. Please meet Benny, a 3 month old Doberman Pinscher. Sadly, Benny was born with a deformed, front, left leg. He will remain in his current foster home until further notice. We are looking into what his options are as he matures and if he is a strong candidate for a prosthetic fitting. Benny loves everyone he meets and his current condition doesn’t slow him down. Please check back for updates, new photos and video of Benny. COP will be organizing a fundraiser to help with his care and prosthetic needs. If you would like to donate towards Benny’s care please click the PayPal  button above. No amount is too small.  😉



~~ TACO~~


L’Taco is looking for LOVE. She is perfect for a semi-retired couple. She is well behaved and LOVES to snuggle. Taco lost her home due to unfortunate circumstances and it was decided that rehoming her was in her best interest. She is house-trained and will sleep quietly on your bed. She can be vocal if she feels insecure or needs to guard the home which may not make her suitable to live in an apt or condo. Taco is 7.5  years old, weighs 4.8 lbs and had a dental cleaning done last year (she needed to have 7 teeth removed) and will require another in the future. We have learned that Taco is best suited to a home as an only pet as she prefers NOT to share her people. She can be protective of her loved-ones and is not suitable to live with young children or cats. Visit our adoption process page for details and application. Home-visit and adoption fee apply.DSC_2414

**MAGGIE needs a VERY savvy home without children. She is best as an only dog in the home BUT depends on the other dog. Maggie has been known to resource guard her food and toys from other dogs but does get along with other dogs for the most part.

She is spayed, house-trained and her adoption fee includes a 6 week training package by a trainer we recommend. Only Vancouver Lower Mainland detached homes will be considered (Maggie is not suitable to live in a condo). MAGGIE is currently being fed a raw diet which we would like her to continue on.

~~ DIESEL ~~

STATUS: Adoptable!
AGE: 6 years old
BREED: Mastiff/Dane
WEIGHT: 99 lbs
SOCIAL: Fearful of some men, great with dogs he knows, not good with cats.


Say WOOF to our sweet boy Diesel, a 6 yr old, neutered Mastiff cross. Diesel weighs about 99 lbs and his beautiful coat is called apricot brindle. Diesel needs a VERY special home that have experience with fearful behaviours and experience with guardian breeds. We’ve had Diesel in our care for a number of years now. He was surrendered to Cross Our Paws along with his brother due to unfortunate circumstances in the family. Diesel’s brother was far more confident and his foster home applied immediately to adopt him.

Diesel was placed in a great home with a couple that had lots of dog experience but after 2 months he came back to us. Sadly, Diesel could not learn to trust the man of the house (despite all efforts). Because of Diesel’s insecurities we are being VERY cautious where we place him and are looking for a specific home for him. Diesel is currently in a home with 3 other dogs and is great with all of them as they help his confidence. A home with another confident, friendly dog is a MUST for Diesel!

His foster home also has 3 cats that are kept in a separate part of the home as he will stalk and chase them SO absolutely NO CATS or small pets can live with Diesel. Diesel’s foster home ADORE him and love having him and would adopt him if they were not already at their dog bylaw limit. He is affectionate and always willing to please.

Here are the requirements for Diesel…

~A home with NO children and few men frequenting the home.

~Diesel must live with another friendly, confident dog.

~Absolutely no cats or other small pets (small dogs are ok).

~He needs a home with a secure yard that is private (no chain-link if adjacent to neighbour’s yard or through-way). He would not do well in a condo setting.

~Diesel can not be left outside unattended.

~Diesel must remain on leash and does not do well at dog parks as he plays too rough at times and doesn’t know his own strength. He does get along well with other dogs but needs supervision.

~Diesel is currently on a RAW diet by Red Dog Deli (due to mild allergies) and we hope he remains on this diet if at all possible but not a must.

IF you can provide what Diesel needs please download our adoption questionnaire off our “adoption process” page here and email it back to crossourpaws@gmail.com once complete. References, home-visit and adoption donation of $395 apply.
