SWEET BOY ALDER NEEDS FOSTER CARE!
ALDER is a lovely young boy about 12 to 18 months old. He weighs approx 50 lbs and will be neutered next week. We are looking for a quiet foster home for him to recover in after his surgery (commencing August 17th). ALDER has not been tested with kids or cats so ideally, he would be best in an adult home with no other pets or one other friendly canine until we know more about him. ALDER was transferred to us from the NWT SPCA and it appears he was stabbed in the eye causing trauma. Sadly, his eye could not be saved and was removed several weeks ago. This horrific event has not changed his lovely demeanour. He is an amazing young dog deserving of a loving home! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
FOSTER OR ADOPTIVE HOME NEEDED FOR BLUE!
We are looking for a new home OR foster home for BLUE, a gorgeous, 4 year old, spayed black cat with stunning eyes. Her coat is like silk and she enjoys being brushed. She loves to sit on your lap and watch tv or on the windowsill watching the birds fly by. She prefers to sleep on the bed cuddling or under the covers snuggling with her human mom.
BLUE was rehomed as a kitten with her sibling but as they matured BLUE would prefer to live separately from her brother. She can be skittish of loud noises and would be best in a quiet home with an older couple (no children please as they scare her). We are not sure how BLUE will be with dogs as she has never spent time with them so best she be the only pet. BLUE has always been an indoor girl and her new home will need to do the same. She is completely litter trained and has never had an accident.

~~~EXPERIENCED FOSTER CARE NEEDED FOR TEDDY!~~~
We are looking for a new foster home for our Teddy where someone is home during the day or works from home. He will require an adult only home with no other pets and will need a handler that has a strong background in positively training large dogs. Teddy is house-trained and loves going to Run Free Canine Centre. He is not suitable to live with cats or kids.
NOOTKA NOW HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT APPLIED!
Nootka is a charming Husky/Chow cross pup about 10 weeks old that would love a home with a large secure yard with someone home during the day to take care of her. She is wonderful with other dogs and people but has taken a special interest in her feline friends and started chasing them so best she not live with cats yet.

Cross Our Paws welcomes this HUNK of a dog. Meet Brady aka Teddy. Teddy is a big puppy about 9 to 10 months old. He weighs about 65 lbs and was just neutered on Feb 20th. While Teddy lacks manners from receiving no training in the past, he wants to learn and please. Teddy would love an ACTIVE home with no kids as he can be VERY nippy when handling him (he is far too rough). A home with a large, secure yard is a must (6ft fence). He will chase cats and is not suitable to live with them. Teddy is ok with other dogs but likes to assert himself and is needing to learn that not all dogs want to play rough. His new owners will need to attend obedience training with Teddy so he knows what is expected of him and will require previous dog/breed experience. Visit our adoption process page for details and application.
AGE: 2 years old
WEIGHT: 45 lbs

Our MAGGIE MOO has more character than she knows what to do with. Only people that know dogs well will understand this young girl and all the personality traits she offers. MAGGIE is special in her own way… 🙂
AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION TO THE RIGHT HOME!
**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 email@example.com for more information and application. Maggie’s adoption donation request is $395 which includes her deworming, vaccines and spay.
MAGGIE is NOT for first time dog owners. Email us for details at firstname.lastname@example.org

~~ DIESEL ~~
AGE: 4 years old
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 email@example.com once complete. References, home-visit and adoption donation of $395 apply.
