 Liz is a 4 month old German Shepherd/Lab mix.  She presently weighs 15 pounds but will grow to about 45.  Her short coat is a lovely brownish red, and she has a black muzzle.  We have decided that Liz is a Special Needs dog.  Oh, she doesn't have a limp and she isn't blind or deaf.  No.  She's very, very shy. It's the kind of shyness that doesn't allow her to enjoy her life.

Liz's need is the right kind of home and the right kind of family.  She is a fine and gentle girl who needs a laid back kind of home where she can  grow into the great dog that is in her just waiting to emerge.  She needs reassurance that she is loved, and she needs to know that she can trust you.

Before we adopt our dogs out, we remind the families that all of the dogs need time, not a day or a week or a month.  They will need TIME to  adjust, to be relaxed, to feel comfortable and secure.  This can take much more than just time, though, especially with a sweet and insecure dog like Liz.  It takes the kind of adopter who is committed to the dog, pledging to take all the time and make all the effort, all the love and respect needed to help Liz become her true self by slowly peeling away the fear in the most patient and loving of ways. 

Is that you?  Do you have the time, the willingness, the patience to work with a girl like Liz?  If not, we ask you not to apply to adopt her.  We have plenty of other dogs; that's for sure.

We need a Special Family to fulfill Liz's Special Needs.  It may take a while, but we have plenty of TIME.  (posted 7/11/16, ME, 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.  We 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.
