Facts about Fancy Dancer

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female

Her ribs almost pierced her skin; obviously she hadn't eaten or at least eaten well for a very long time.  She was a stray; no one missed her or wanted her.  Until, that is, her foster found her, and fed her, and named her, and loved her.  Now, Fancy Dancer, American Pit Bull Terrier mix,  is  lovely and healthy, and filled with joy!  She is probably between 10 months and a year old, and presently weighs 45 lbs., maturing to the 55 lb. range.  Now that she is healthy, Fancy's energy level is on the high side of medium, and she loves playing and walking.  She loves all people and gets along very well with her house mates, but she can be a wee bit stubborn, at times choosing not to come when she's called.  We think that Fancy Dancer would probably prefer to be the only pet in the house unless the other is a male, equal to her in size and energy level.  Although very sweet, loving to cuddle on the couch, she can get carried away in play at times, so we do not want her in a home with small children.  Older kids are fine, though!  Overall we think that Fancy would enjoy and benefit from obedience classes.  In addition to all of her other wonderful traits, she's an intelligent girl who is house and crate trained! Just look at her!  It's hard to believe how she looked when her foster found her.  No more ribs ready to pierce her skin, no more eyes dulled by hunger.  Oh, no!  Let us introduce Fancy Dancer, a red and white coated beauty with bright and beautiful amber eyes!  (posted 3/20/16, JS, N/A)

 **It is rare that we know with certainty the ages or mixes that make up our wonderful dogs, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible based upon our many years in rescue.**

Adoption: $285 which covers quarantine, shots, worming, food, medical records, spaying/neutering, and an Alabama State Health Certificate.

Transport, if needed :  $120.00    We consider the transport to be of great importance and, as such, take particular care of the dogs during the trip from Alabama.  Heather and David are the owners of the transport vehicle; they typically drive the 22 hours accompanied by one or two foster moms. The trip is punctuated by stops so that the dogs can have some leash and relief time, time to stretch those dog legs, a snack and some water. They make every effort to arrive with healthy and minimally stressed dogs.

About Crossing Paths Animal Rescue - Patricia's PA Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Crossing Paths is a 501(c)3 animal rescue organization based in Locust Fork, Alabama.
Several times per week, Mary Ellen Tidwell, the President of Crossing Paths Animal Rescue, visits one of the many the high-kill facilities in Alabama and removes as many adoptable dogs as she can accommodate in her own kennels and foster homes. Dogs which are adopted by families in the Northeast are transported every two to three weeks to PA/NJ/NY/MD and various locations in the Northeast.
When the transport leaves to bring the adopted dogs north, Mary Ellen returns to the high-kill facility to fill the vacancies left by the adopted dogs. What does this mean for you?

Our Adoption Process...

We are not a shelter, our dogs are in a network of foster homes. We have transports of adopted dogs to Hagerstown, MD area and as far north as Newtown , PA (and points along the way) at least every 3 weeks.

Please see our website for adoption and transport fee info.
If you are interested in any of our dogs, the first step is to submit the application found on our website.

List any dogs that interest you in order of preference. If you don't see anything right now, check back often as we update frequently. ( Note that there are 2 links on our website adoptable dog page):
When your application is approved, we will put you in touch with the dog's foster mom/dad who will answer any questions you may have and so that the foster may get a feel for your situation and determine if the dog will be a good fit for your particular household. If all that ends on a positive note, we'll finalize the adoption (process payment) and schedule the dog for transport, if needed.

If you are uncomfortable adopting a dog without a prior face-to-face meeting and you are in the PA/NJ area, we have adoption events several times per year at local pet stores in Newtown, PA or Lawrenceville, NJ for which we bring up 15-20 adoptable dogs. Watch our website for up coming events.

* PLEASE NOTE: We review the applications in order of receipt and many of our potential adopters who are otherwise qualified miss out on a dog that has stolen their hearts because the application came in later than others of equal merit. Here's my advice: file the application ASAP. Don't waste time sending an inquiry asking info on the dogs and if they are available. We , on the front lines, don't know each dog personally; what we do know is in the description we have provided . We will let you know if the dog is available or not upon receipt of your application and give you the opportunity to select another.
