The man who would become his foster was sitting in the vet's office waiting for his appointment when a woman dragged a dog through the door.  She said he was a stray and she was going to have him put down.  By the time she and Dodger's foster finished speaking they agreed that his foster would take him home.  The woman was thrilled.  Upon looking closely at the dog, the man could see that he had some mange; otherwise he looked fine except for being underweight.  And so Dodger was named and taken home where, for the last 4 months or so, he has been fed well, his mange has been treated, and his foster found out something quite endearing about him.  He wants to be a lap dog!  Well, that would be fine, except that this 1 to 1 1/2 year old is a Plott Hound that weighs around 50 pounds!  He's a fine boy with a great temperament; he loves to play with the other dogs, especially one named Cookie, and he's just plain nice.  Do you what I mean?  He's a dog, and he's good at it.  He's a really nice dog !  He's crate and house trained. We're not sure he likes cats, so we don't recommend he go to a home with cats.  We do recommend that he go to people who don't mind a 50 pound dog on their laps.  As we said, he's really good at being a dog, one who loves his people and isn't afraid to show it!  (posted 3/28/16, PK, 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.**

As Celebrate Home Dogs, the total fee, which includes adoption and transport, is only $200.00.  This isn't because the dog is worth less.  It's because they're worth more.  We want dogs like these in your home as quickly as possible.  They have been waiting too long, and they need their own beds (or yours) in their own home. More importantly, they need your love.

 The adoption fee covers quarantine, worming, all vaccines, heartworm testing, heartworm and tick/flea preventatives, neutering, health certificate, and complete medical records. 

Adoption Fee:  $100.00

Transport Fee:  $100.00

About Crossing Paths Animal Rescue - Patricia's AL 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?
EVERY DOG THAT YOU ADOPT FROM CROSSING PATHS MEANS THAT YOU HAVE NOT ONLY SAVED YOUR DOG, BUT YOU HAVE PROVIDED ROOM SO THAT ANOTHER CAN BE RESCUED.

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.
www.xpar.org
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.
