Copper is a special needs dogs in search of a home with other dogs. He is about 2 1/2 years old and weighs 40 lbs.  He is neutered and up to date on shots.  Here's what his current owner says:

In April of 2015, I adopted a dog from a local animal rescue organization. He was badly neglected and had never lived inside when he came to me. I have taught him to use the stairs and not be afraid of ceiling fans along with may other daily activities. He has come so far and I am now realizing he is not progressing any more and will always have his special needs. I have tried herbal remedies, prescription medication, training (for confidence), doggie day care, and even adopted a second dog. He is always in the second bed room hiding and never has fun at home with just myself and his sister.. BUT he thrives in households with multiple dogs. When I visit home and everyone brings their dogs together, he is 100% different than when he is at home alone with me. He is happy and plays and runs around with them, with so much less time in another room alone. Unfortunately I cannot support the multiple dogs needed to make him happy. That is why I am reaching out to you. I’d like to find him a home with someone who has had special needs dogs and that has many dogs already.   This person would definitely need to have experience with neglected dogs, so there is no surprise with his quirky behavior. 

 Adoption fee $200 

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 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.
