Meet Mermaid a cute 2 yr old Maltese/Boston Terrier mix, who along with her sister, Miko are available for adoption. These girls are survivors of parvo and are just precious. Mermaid is about 27 lbs with soft somewhat silky hair. Her body is somewhat longer than her sister. Mermaid needs a family that will provide her an inside home with a fenced in backyard. She and her sister have endless energy, the typical terrier inquisitive nature, and a zest for life.  Please no children under the age of 9, no cats, no chickens or small animals in the home.  They have a high prey drive and need an active family.  Mermaid and Miko thrive on plenty of attention but need lots of exercise! Their new family must not mind if the girls make some landscaping changes to the backyard, nor mind if they chase a few squirrels up a tree. This duo are loyal watch dogs and their clownish antics will provide you with many hours of entertainment. But they are terriers, they may dig, they love to run, they have killed chickens. They are not lap pups. They are very sweet and have always been together. They give kisses freely and love to be a part of the family! We would love to adopt this pair together! They need a family who understands and loves the terrier breed.  Posted 12/29/16 TM

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-Vickie'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?

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.
