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.

      Breed: Bea-Tzu

      Age: Baby

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Shih Tzu / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 250.00. Paws Crossed Dog Rescue serves the Eastern Panhandle of WV and surrounding communities. Please read "Adoption Info" on the left side of our website. This puppy comes to us from an animal control facility. It is believed that he is about 16 weeks old. We're not 100% sure of the breed mix, but it is strongly believed that his mother was a Shih Tzu and his father was a Beagle. Being so young, house training is obviously a work in progress. There has been no interaction with cats. Beagle mixes require a physical fence. Beagles are scent hounds. Please research the breed before making a decision about applying to adopt. There's a link to learn more about Beagles on this page. Email inquiries can be made to PawsCrossedDogRescue.com

Doesn't really matter... he's as handsome as they come, and so friendly! His tail wags constantly! Happy dog!! We don't know how he is with cats. Please consider his house training skills as a work in progress. He's in a foster home with other dogs, and is doing just wonderful with all of them!

Please read "Adoption Info" on the left of the website. Jake comes to us from southern WV. He was originally pulled by another rescue. That rescue could not afford his care (he had been hit by a car), so we stepped in to take care of Jake. He's healing after surgery, and doing quite well, and will be just fine! He is mild-mannered, well behaved, and is quite a loving little dog. He will make a fantastic family member! He's full of personality, and during his hospitalization, the entire vet staff just raved over what a good boy he was, despite being in a tough situation. He can be with other dogs with the right introduction and time but would prefer to be an only dog (Cats are fine). Jake would like a quiet, calm home. Older, mature children are fine. He needs people who will appreciate him for the sensitive, loving dog that he is. He wants to please. He wants a warm lap, a blanket, and love. Email inquiries can be made to PawsCrossedDogRescue@yahoo.com We have funded all of Jake's vet care, to the tune of over $7,000. If you can donate toward his care, we would appreciate that!

Being the older gal that she is, and having little to no care given to her in her past, you need to know that we think she has one tooth, and will need a wet food diet.

      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (long coat). Paws Crossed Dog Rescue serves the Eastern Panhandle of WV and surrounding communities. Please read "Adoption Info" on the left side of our website. Gizmo Boy comes to us as an owner surrender from rural WV. He was breeder stock, and the breeder just disposed of him like yesterday's newspaper. We know he's around 8 years old. We don't know what he's like with cats, and we don't know his house training status. He does have a heart murmur . He also has advanced periodontal disease, and was infested with fleas when surrendered. We'll take care of his needed dental treatment, and he's already free of fleas. UPDATE Gizmo is in foster care and doing great. he is such a great dog and is going to make someone a great companion. He does have a heart murmur but does not need medication . The vet said he is very healthy and we have him scheduled for a good dental. he seems to be house trained and loves all dogs and humans. We still are not sure about cats. . He loves car rides and walks well on a leash. He could be your next dog...

      Breed: Beagle
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Take a Chance on me! This past year I lost my home through no fault of my own, so now I am looking for a new friend to love since my Papa recently went to heaven. I loved being able to run around in the back yard and nap on the sunny deck, and although my foster family loves me, I am ready to get all the attention for myself again. One of these pictures shows me resting for a quick moment from chasing bugs. I'm always chasing something! The other is me reflecting on my life. I am handsome, aren't I? Everybody who knows me calls me 'The Nose' because, like any self-respecting Beagle, I love to follow a scent where ever it leads. So I guarantee you that our walks will often be an adventure if you decide to take a Chance on me. I am housebroken, crate trained, and I reliably come when called, except when I'm outside of a fenced yard- go figure! My start in life was humble. For the first year of my life I lived in a box outdoors and was a breeder dog for a puppy mill that has long since been closed. Then I was rescued and found my way to live with a very nice, much older couple for several years. And now, having grieved losing them both (they were in their 80's), I am at peace and ready to love again. Right now I am being fostered by a family that has several dogs, and I am used to being an only dog with my parents, so that is what I am really hoping to find again. The way I came to mistrust other dogs was when I was attacked by 2 much bigger dogs who had escaped their yard when I was on my daily leash walk with Papa in September of 2012. I am lucky to be here, and I know that I have a reason to be here since I still have so much love to give. Although I am a senior citizen myself, I am happy and active. My retirement plan is to keep my place right next to you on the sofa warm, to score treats whenever I can, and to be your new best friend. Will you take a Chance on me?

      Breed: Bagle Hound
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      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
