Crosby's Story...
Crosby is Shar Pei-mix, male, 1.5 years of age.

Look at that adorably kissable face – cutie patootie meters off the charts indeed! Crosby is not only a sweetly captivating, one-of-a-kind, compact canine looker, but he also has the delightfully endearing personality to match. Part playful, funny-guy, ready to entertain you with his comedic ways and somewhat oafish-like playful antics; and part sensitive, serious-minded canine, attentively and deeply devoted to his people, he is also an all-around, happy-to-be-around, extremely loving, zesty and robust, vibrantly full-of-life, completely charming little character.

Always well-intentioned and sincere, but sometimes a little frisky with a puppy-like rambunctiousness, Crosby thrives with structure and routine – established rules and boundaries to which all family members consistently adhere too. A dog who if he senses he is stronger-minded than his owner, may not take him or her seriously. Crosby simply needs a responsible, caring owner who sets him up for success from the get-go by providing him with the confident leadership and faithful companionship he needs and deserves for the rest of his life.

Affectionate, intelligent, attentive, and quick to please when he knows what is expected of him, Crosby is a faithfully devoted young dog who craves human companionship and close contact, and he revels in praise for accomplishment. Lively, animated, gently playful, and ever-curious, he will need regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay happy, healthy, and well-behaved. A dog who enjoys learning new things and being challenged, Crosby will appreciate training and socialization opportunities, and he’ll benefit from and excel in obedience. This will also be an excellent way to bond with him and meet some of his exercise needs as well as to reinforce good canine manners.

Crosby is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.

Come meet Crosby at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

For more information you can email carrie_nation@monroemi.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.

Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.

Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.

In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Crosby, a Monroe Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei for sale in Monroe, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Monroe.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Monroe already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Monroe breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shar Pei breeders who help with Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monroe paves the way for another one to be saved.
