ABOUT DUKE!

WHAT DUKE NEEDS – APPLY IF YOU MEET THE FOLLOWING:

A dog experienced home preferably with breed knowledge
A home with a fenced/secure yard located within the GVRD
A home that is quiet but active with absolutely no children
A home with a friendly, social, confident med/lrg sized dog would be ideal
A home that believes in a fresh diet for dogs such as raw or dehydrated raw

**Duke has special needs and requires a very savvy owner to help assist him to make the right decisions.

Duke is our special-needs, little-husky-boy who comes with a few quirks . He is 14 months old, neutered and weigh about 45 lbs. Duke will need a patient and understanding dog-experienced owner that can help improve his impulse control and anxieties. He does not do well in stressful or loud situations. Duke is best in an adult home with no kids. He can be mouthy at times if he is frustrated or restrained, but otherwise, he is well mannered with other dogs and would benefit by living with another social dog. He will not do well in an  apartment and requires a detached home with a secure yard to run and play in preferably within the GVRD.

Duke’s new owner MUST employ only positive-training-methods and will need to be patient as he learns. Again, he is best in a quiet but active home.  We will insist Duke remain on his raw diet as he does not do well on kibble. Duke is house and crate-trained in his foster home, however may need reminders once moved. If you sound like a match for Duke, email your completed application to crossourpaws@gmail.com

UPDATE: MAY 9th – LEO’S FAMILY HAS CHOSEN A NEW HOME FOR LEO! THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!

**We are courtesy posting this gorgeous German Shepherd for his current care-givers.

Loyal Leo is looking for a new, breed-savvy home. Leo is an almost 3 yr old PB, CKC registered long-haired German Shepherd. Sadly, Leo lost his owner recently and is feeling a little confused without his buddy. Leo can be dog reactive and will need an understanding home to help socialize him slowly without force. We know some amazing trainers to recommend and will be insisting on further training. Leo weighs just over 80 lbs and will need further grooming and lots of weekly brushings. Leo is house-trained, neutered and requires a home with a fully fenced yard. He is not an apartment dog and needs space.

Please send in your application if you feel Leo is a good match for you. Application, home-visit, references and adoption donation apply.  Visit us at crossourpawsrescue.com for details and application.

TYSON UPDATE – MARCH 22, 2021 – ADOPTED!

DO YOU LOVE SENIOR DOGS THAT STILL HAVE SOME BOUNCE IN THEIR STEP?

Tyson

Breed: German Shepherd mix
Age: 8 years young
Weight: Approx 80+ lbs
Neutered: Yes, at 2 yrs old
House-trained: Tyson currently lives outdoors so will need help with this

Dog experienced home wanted! Tyson is a sweet, semi-senior boy looking for a new home. We met this handsome guy and were quite enamoured with him. He has been an outdoor dog so will need a home with a secure yard to help him transition to an indoor home. He would benefit with some positive training and direction so he can be the GREAT dog he can be. Tyson is social with other friendly dogs but cats are unknown. If you are interested in Tyson please visit our website and download our adoption questionnaire. Once complete, email it to crossourpaws@gmail.com. Cross Our Paws will be screening suitable applicants for the owners. Provide as much detail as possible about your experience and what you know about the breed.
