Posted Breed: Border Collie / Border Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). See Worthy's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Paws Crossed Dog Rescue serves the Eastern Panhandle of WV and surrounding counties. Please read "Adoption Info" on the left side of our website. Worthy comes to us from a shelter in rural West Virginia. Her original humans (that's a compliment) named her 'Worthless' and 14 years later, dumped her at the shelter. We know that she's certainly Worthy of better, and we're anxious to see her live out the rest of her years knowing love, safety, good food, clean water, and family companionship. She's fine with other dogs, and was unmoved when in the same room with a cat. Obviously, we don't recommend that she be in a home with young toddlers. We don't know if she'd have the patience for that. She just needs a quiet, loving, warm home in which to spend her retirement years. We all know that senior dogs love everybody. If you have it in your heart, and have room in your home for this spectacular, beautiful, wonderful old gal, please submit an adoption application. We are proud to have Worthy as part of our Rescue and we are committed to finding her the PERFECT furever home! Email inquiries can be made to PawsCrossedDogRescue@yahoo.com

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). PawsCrossedDogRescue.com serves the Eastern Panhandle of WV and surrounding counties. Please read the ADOPTION INFORMATION link on the left side of our website. Coco comes to us from southern WV. She's a little girl, very timid, shy at first, but quickly warms your heart. She was surrendered over to rescue from her owners. Truthfully, we are unsure of her breed mix. UPDATED BIO : April , 2016. Coco has been in foster care for over one year. She is a beautiful brown dog. She is over looked so many times becasue she has nothing special that sticks out about her in just a picture. She loves to run and play in a fenced in yard. She is very alart to everything that goes on in life. She will watch the Planes fly over head, watches everything that is going on when taken for a car ride. Coco would love to live with a family that takes hikes or she would be a great running partner. She also loves to eat......... __________________________________________________ We're anxious to see this sweet little girl come out of her shell, get relaxed, and really just be a dog. That's all she wants... a family to call her own! Know that she is nursing puppies, so she will not be available to go to her forever home until after April 1st. But you certainly can apply NOW so we can get your adoption application processed in a timely manner. Coco loves to run and play in a fenced in yard. If you are a person that likes to run with a dog by your side Coco could be your dog. She is always ready for an adventure with her people. She has so much love to give. Maybe she could be your next dog. Email inquiries can be made to PawsCrossedDogRescue@yahoo.com

Please read "Adoption Info" on the left side of our website. Otis comes to us from a southern WV shelter. He was adopted from a shelter, but was once again found as a stray 3 years later. We stepped in to make sure he gets a forever home. He's safe in a wonderful foster home now, with 3 other XL dogs, and cats. Otis loves everyone. We're not 100% sure of his breed mix, but we're totally guessing Great Dane & Treeing Walker Coonhound. He's happy to be settled in now, and he knows the best years of his life are in front of him.

      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Chihuahua (short coat). Paws Crossed Dog Rescue serves the Eastern Panhandle of WV and possibly surrounding communities. Please read "Adoption Info" on the left side of our website! Tyrone comes to us from an Animal Control facility, where he was picked up as a stray. He has a super sweet personality, and just wants to be held. He's fine around other dogs and is learning about cats. He's very well adjusted, and is just a nice dog. He'd love nothing more than a family to call his own. One that will hold him, play with him, and take him for walks. He's a chihuahua, so he'd do best in a home with older, more mature children. His favorite toy is a tennis ball. He LOVES big dogs (as long as they love him), as he's in a foster home with a 45-lb standard poodle, a 70-lb labradoodle, and a JRT. Again... he's a chihuahua, and if given the opportunity to run a household, he will try to do that. He needs behavior parameters, structure, and rules. He will chase horses & other farm animals, so we can't place him in a farm-style home. Email inquiries can be made to PawsCrossedDogRescue@yahoo.com

Please read "Adoption Information" on our website. Little Jax comes to us from a rural, southern WV shelter. We think he's a Schnauzer/Scottie mix, but we're not really sure?!? No matter what mix he is... he's a handsome boy! He's a friendly, playful, funny dog. He will require a fence. Invisible or electric fences are not acceptable. There are no exceptions. Jax is a dog that likes a lot of exercise. He loves to play ball, and running with his person would be wonderful. He loves his people and would like to go everywhere with his family. He has a lot to give to a family that is active. He would love to hike or go for a very long walk. Lets just say Jax is very athletic. He is always ready for a good game in the backyard. Then after a good work out, he is ready to sit with you on the couch to watch TV. Email inquiries can be made to PawsCrossedDogRescue@yahoo.com

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat). Paws Crossed Dog Rescue serves the Eastern Panhandle of WV and possibly surrounding communities. Please read "Adoption Info" on the left side of our website. Little Maddie comes to us from a southern WV shelter. We think she's about 1 & 1/2 years old. She was brought to the shelter because her owner was hospitalized, and there was no one else to care for her. She is very shy and timid when you first meet her but all she wants is love. She will need family who can give her a lot of love and patience. She would do better in a home without young children because she can get scared easily. She enjoys spending time running around outside. She will require a home with a fenced yard. If you're ready for a little lap dog, and one that will provide unconditional love forever, this might be your girl! Email inquiries can be made to PawsCrossedDogRescue@yahoo.com

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Hound / Mixed (short coat). We are "courtesy-posting" Thor for another rescuer. He's in a loving foster home, but needs to find his forever home! We could arrange transport once an adoption application, including home visit, is completed and approved. His family had to give him up because they lived in a breed discriminating location. He's very smart - knows basic commands such as sit, and shake/give paw. He'd do best in a home with a fence. He's fine with other dogs, and is curious about cats, but isn't bothered by them. If you're ready for just an awesome, awesome boy who loves to run, play fetch, and just do whatever you want to do, Thor is your boy! He's fine if you just want to watch movies & eat popcorn, too! He's house trained, crate trained, leash trained, and just needs a family! He's up to date on all vetting, too! Email inquiries can be made to nicolemikes@yahoo.com

      Location: Hedgesville, WV
      Posted Breed: Basset Hound / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Izzy is a courtesy-post for another individual, rescue, or shelter. She is not a Paws Crossed Rescue dog. Contact information and adoption details can be received from the individual listed below. This is simply a courtesy post to get exposure for the dog to increase her chances of getting adopted. She is available for adoption!! Izzy is a around 6 years old and a basset/beagle mix. She is current on vaccines and spayed. The hair-loss that you see is from a previous flea infestation that is now healing nicely. Izzy was pulled 2 weeks ago and is looking for a rescue, foster or a home. However, Izzy has some behavioral issues and would do best in a only dog home because she is not good with other dogs and has possession over toys. She also has seizures, she had her first one since she has been with us last night. Izzy is very sweet and loving and is crate trained also. Please help us find her a home or rescue!! Feel free to contact Erin if you have any questions or are interested. (304) 270-6984
