Our sweet old girl STELLA is looking for a new home. She was adopted from Cross Our Paws Rescue almost 9 years ago and has had the same loving home ever since. Sadly, due to illness with her owner, Stella needs a new home now in her senior years. Stella still has a bounce in her step and loves her hikes. She is a healthy, 50 lb., spayed, Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. She is great with other dogs but will chase cats/small critters. She loves everyone she meets including kids. At Cross Our Paws Rescue, we back our rescues for life and honoured to assist Stella in her next journey. Please visit our adoption process page for an application if you are interested in this wonderful dog. crossourpawsrescue.com



We think OODLES is Border Collie, with a little Husky and some Kangaroo mixed in …lol. He is a LIVE one as they say. OODLES loves everyone, but will only be placed in an adult home as he needs to brush up on his manners and can be rather mouthy/jumpy. This boy absolutely loves other dogs and it is important that he live with another young, active, friendly canine.OODLES would thrive in dog sports and is a VERY intelligent dog. His new family will need to be ACTIVE and dog SAVVY.




Bechard is an ACTIVE 2.5 yr old, neutered, 60 lb., Lab/Boxer mix. He needs a foster or forever home within the next several weeks. He is a lovely, affectionate boy with energy to burn. He wants to learn and know, “what’s next?” We are told he is great with other dogs, a little too much for young kids and cats are unknown.
If you are interested in fostering him please submit your application to crossourpawsrescue@gmail.com. Visit our website for details. crossourpawsrescue.com

~~ TACO~~


L’Taco is looking for LOVE. She is the perfect little Chihuahua for a semi-retired couple! She is well behaved and LOVES to snuggle. Taco recently 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 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.

GENDER: Female

Do you engage in dog sports? Want to get involved in Agility or Flyable,  Tracking or Nose-work? Do you have experience with dogs that need a job? If so, Maggie might be a GREAT match! She is FAST and FOCUSSED! She will THRIVE in any sport and loves to please.


**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. As of recently, with more exposure, has been great with the cats in her foster home and no longer chases them. MAGGIE weighs about 45 lbs and has the softest coat. 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. Email us at crossourpawsrescue@gmail.com for more information and application. Maggie’s adoption donation request is $395 which includes her deworming, vaccines, titre test and spay.

MAGGIE is NOT for first time dog owners. Email us for details at crossourpawsrescue@gmail.com. Application, references and home-visit apply. Application can be downloaded directly off the adoption-process page here.



~~ DIESEL ~~

STATUS: Adoptable!
AGE: 4 years old
BREED: Mastiff/Dane
WEIGHT: 99 lbs
SOCIAL: Fearful of some men, great with dogs, not good with cats.


Say WOOF to our sweet boy Diesel, a 4 yr old, neutered Mastiff cross. Diesel weighs about 97 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 since August 2014. 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.

In late August 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 crossourpawsrescue@gmail.com once complete. References, home-visit and adoption donation of $395 apply.
