My story

Cross is a handsome 6 1/2 year old male, Shepherd mix...a darling boy with a huge heart. He’s a big boy, around 75 lbs. Cross is a Shepherd mix, maybe part retriever because he loves to retrieve tennis balls so much! He was actually obtained on Craigslist then abandoned at a local boarding kennel. He lived at the kennel for several years until finally finding a foster home. 

Cross is shy at first around new people, but is very affectionate after he gets to know you. It takes a little time to get to know him, but once he warms up he is a HUGE lover boy and will give you hugs literally!!

His favorite best friend is Ginger, also on our site for adoption. They were both abandoned around the same time and have been close buddies for years. If they got adopted together it would be AMAZING! But this is not required. Cross MUST have a medium size, playful female in the home. He cannot be the only dog as he would be miserable and be does best with female dogs.

He‘a very shy with men and must have a female in his home, as well as a tall fenced yard. The ideal home for Cross is a woman in her 40’s-50’s who’s still active, can be married but any man will need to have a sweet, loving personality to win him over. Also a home with a tall fence and a playful female dog, or who can adopt Ginger also!
